    53 GALLONS of soda!?! Wow. That’s terrible. I think my diet a little bit different! Excellent post, thanks for sharing!

      We have free Coke products at work, so there’s definitely ‘Gallon of Soda a Day’ clubbers at my office too 🙂

      • Bob Ewing says:

        That’s impressive. Maybe we should have a separate challenge to see if we can drink a gallon of soda every day for a month??

  3. Where’s the chocolate on that graphic?

    You know, re-reading this morning, I’m actually impressed that the average American eats so many vegetables. 415 pounds is a lot of veggies.
