Imagine yourself posing for a photograph of what you had to eat today. That’s what 80 people from 30 countries did for Peter Menzel in What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets. The book features a Japanese sumo wrestler, a world-renowned Spanish chef Ferran Adria, an American competitive eater and others. Their personal stories also include their demographics, age, weight, height, and activity level. Here are some of the people and what they ate all day, from the book.
Cao Xiaoli is a professional acrobat.
Xu Zhipeng is a freelance computer graphics artist and Internet gamer.
Shashi Kanth is a call center worker at the AOL call center in Bangalore, India.
Jun Yajima is a bike messenger in Tokyo, Japan.
Saada Haidar is a housewife.
Mariel Booth is a professional model and New York University student.
The housewife seems to be eating a lot of food, the model doesn’t really surprise me. This is fascinating and has me curious to see the rest of the book. If you think this is interesting too, share it with others.
