According to a recent government study, Americans may be losing calories but it’s not for the reason you think.
No, we’re not cutting calories by watching our portion sizes or swapping high fat foods for lean options. Instead, we are losing 1,249 calories per person per day because of wasted food.
That’s right, each day we’re throwing away enough calories to feed a person three square meals. However, to be fair, those calories represent total food loss and the wasted calories aren’t only coming out of your kitchen. Still, it makes you wonder what we could be doing differently.
