Some Meaty Math
Nina Teicholz is fond of portraying the modern American diet as "near-vegetarian", and that we need to "return" to our meat eating ways of a century ago. But even her most exaggerated statistic lists meat intake at 200 lbs per year.
[200 lbs/year] * [16 ounces/lb] ÷ [365 days/year] = 8.77 ounces/day
or 0.55 pounds or 250 grams of meat per day
Now to pick a fatty meat ... Prime Rib
This works out to just under 800 fat calories and just over 200 protein calories, roughly 75% fat, 25% protein.
Now you have around 1000 of your daily calories. What else was on the plate to provide the additional 1000 to 1500 or 2000 if the men from the Minnesota Starvation Study intakes are used for reference?
