An alternative explanation for evening junk food could be watching tv and seeing ads. The depletion effect can be part of poor choices but usually a good breakfast leads to better choices later during the day.
 
You keep my busy following all these interesting links. Thanks a lot +Ali Adelstein again a great share!
 
Where is Germany, not here :(
 
As I said, a lot of beer in the German photo ...

I don't feel represented by any of those examples, let alone by what a shepherd may eat during his trips with the sheep.

Wow Great man where ru from past years
 
Egypt twice +Ahmed Harara, because the images fit well and show also that, of course, these images are not intended to be representative ...
 
Funny... how Egyptian dud is all dressed-up and Iran is like a baker .... Spain is a hiker hungary guy stumbled on picnic table .... I have travelled much and been to some of this countries eating with locals mostly! Images are far from truth..... the article is another story by itself! 
 
Accha than come on share the true story .....Mis ROX
 
egypt, kenya, china, yemen, spain, vietnam look fairly yumness.
 
Hey John Kooz ur rocking man ..thumsup to U
 
mesopotamian and iranian cuisine looks fairly tasty.  weird seeing all the portion variations, too.  hhmm i really like this photo. really interesting. no offense, namibian cuisine looks pretty gross lol.    wow I really like this photo.  Question though: is it supposed to be average full-day's food for each place?  couldn't be single meal.  is that like a full's day total food in each place?  liked seeing the variations in beverages and quantities/volumes. dang this is an awesome photo.  people's (culture's) cuisine definitely occasionally reflects the people (often physiologically).

LMAO! I like how the person in Spain is the ONLY person who has actually started eating HAHA. like screw this, munching on baguette thing haha. dang this photo is really cool. I like this photo.
 
So go ahead make it as ur wallpepar
 
that previous commenter obv. didn't scrutinize. yes, there's one egyptian photo with a person dressedup but the other egyptian photo looks very distinct with huge culinary and apparel/costume differences.   I think one of the things I like most about this is how the people's 'costume' and appearance seems to match the cuisine.  anyways this is endlessly fascinating. relaly liked this.
 
Ok Rockers time to sleep ...Good Knight

Here you come and i cant wait
 
Two things: First, not ALL Americans eat Marlboros for sustenance. Second, is that a tiny Iranian, or giant stuff?
 
Thank you for your post. Very interesting.
 
And to go against not feeding trolls, +scelimpililo gadaff your view of God is contradictory; if He made you, programmed you and designed the environment for which you to grow and learn from, how then could he blame you for your actions? Thats like blaming the vacuum for sucking up jewelry on the floor. ie. you are as He intended you to be.

By-the-by, Im not gay or religeous lol.;P

 
next time you plan to get something like these together please contact me(Shadrack Philips) so that i can get you footages from Nigeria for free sir.
 
It's a little-known fact that the Chinese eat in that position.
 
Falta el puesto de barbacoa o carnitas en la Ciudad de México! :)
Translate
 
I read that book. interesting stuff. especially the 11-12 yr old porter from India.
 
Kenya is where i am, the second one is mine.
 
Ecuadorian Fanesca, Cola Morada, humitas and more.
 
Why does Egypt have two spots, and why does China have a guy balancing myself on a stick?
 
what poor examples of usa..i hope the world doesnt see this post.
 
Read all the comments and no-one has mentioned Scotland If the Worlds food included porridge then the photograph at the beginning of this article would have so much more meaning and possibly a vital food fir everyone to enjoy 
 
+Martin Franklin this Ali guy is a liberal turd ... Look he portrays the US with a soldier and MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) what does have anything to do with this? I wonder why he didn't post a picture of an astronaut with their American diet in space ... Because we're only the First Nation to have done that ... 
 
What a lot of stereotypical bollocks
You should be ashamed sharing this picture
 
+Mubassar Tariq don't lecture me on the details... Gagarin did one orbit and he didn't eat in space... Read my post before jumping the gun. And Russians didn't title him an astronaut ... You want to talk space let's talk space...
 
+Mubassar Tariq the only one "bending" words here is you because you fail read and understand English in context ... Don't blame anyone else because you made yourself look like an ass ... I clearly outlined "American diet in Space" ... you had to correct me on a non issue ... Was Gagarin the first man in space with engineered food? Try harder next time ... And he's called a cosmonaut ... Russians don't like their crew in space called astronauts... That's the detail ... 
 
+Mubassar Tariq maybe you should learn how to read English properly before attempting to assert yourself to relieve others if their ignorance... It only shows your own ignorance ... In aviation these are fine nuances that everyone knows not to cross. Since you're not in this profession go ahead call a cosmonaut an astronaut ... And see what happens ... 
 
+John Yaşar I wouldn't waste my time. He lives in Yes and goes to a community college. Hasn't made a public post since Aug.

I think the real defining point of US cuisine is Southwestern cooking. That is something that wasn't borrowed from Europe. Hmm, and possibly Cajun also. That's pretty unique. But as someone commented earlier these are just images to re-reinforce stereotypes.
 
I am from Yemen I did not expect you will mention my country ok overall the yemeni food is the best food it taste really good ,Has any one eaten Yemeni food.
 
good point there, usa as many other countries are too diverse to
give a small example of what they eat. stereotypes win this one..
 
This post is not meant to reinforce stereotypes! Is it not possible to post some images without getting always into the same discussion about this vs that??
 
+Ali Adelstein given your history of anti-American posts and opinions you'll get reactions ... You need to be more sensitive not us...
 
Sometimes that's the price you pay for being so popular +Ali Adelstein :) Yeah, I get sick of it too.
All I wanted to point out is that Southwestern cooking is a really large part of the US diet and a culture in and of itself. The meaning would be totally changed if you had a nice mixed group of people sitting down and enjoying tacos, burritos and enchiladas.
The fast food hamburger thing wasn't any better since those ideas came from Russia to the port of Hamburg. I'm sure that's not news to anyone. :)
 
UAS culture and tradition basically came from England 
 
+DJ yamin Right, except for corn, chillis, potatoes and rice. The first three were found in the New World and of course rice is from the Orient.
 
Yes +Jim Carver :-) The What's hot is very popular...
Btw, we have an American restaurant near where I live, very good kitchen!
 
Fuck you do not mention Arab by your dirty tounge bitch 
 
Btw, I am anything but anti-American +John Yaşar. I just don't like guns and the climate change...
 
i have a pair of panties with ali's name on them.
 
Something I do not understand. It seems to be impossible to show such a great compilation of what people eat around the world without getting drawn into the same boring discussions about good vs. bad, up vs. down,. east vs. west to be continued.

Talking just for me: I love posts like this because it keeps my head busy, showing me the diversity of this wonderful world and often amazes me. In my opinion, broadining the personal view is good for everyone, no matter where you are from.
 
Climate change can not solely be laid on the US +Ali Adelstein, we are more aware and educated about our contribution to the problem and taken an action about it. We need to worry more about nations like China that doesn't seem to regulate that stuff. Guns are part of this nation's tradition and history. Guns don't kill, people do and they need to be educated. It is okay not to like guns but that doesn't mean we can remove our rights to bear them. This is off topic and I will leave it at that.
 
I was doing a little research and it seems something close to the hamburger was one of the first MREs. They weren't too keen on cooking it back then. :) It's kind of like this one I ordered at a mall cafe one time, (yeah, that's me totally out of character). I was the only one there and waited for a half-hour. It came out, and it was tartare...sent it back and it was still bloody rare. I ate half of it and split. Jeez, the paleo diet might be okay sometimes, and I like mine pink in the middle, but that was just a bit much!

DJ yamin you are correct America was highly influenced by England especially English Law.When it comes to good food Americans are willing to try most anything.From any country.
 
+Jack Middleton ok what about the red Indian ? Why USA did not influence by them although they came to USA before the birtsh people 
Anna
 
that  is such truth tho!
 
+DJ yamin The corn, potatoes and chillis were the Indian influence. Spanish food is bland, they didn't have chillis until Columbus discovered them in what is now Haiti.
 
Basically most Indigenous people the North American settlers meet were hunters and gathers. The crops the Indian people grew they shared this knowledge with the Colonial settlers.
 
The potato? Obviously you haven't done your research right, the potato comes from Peru in the high Andes and nowhere else, the original potato is a poisonus green root.
 
Why is china there twice, and also Shanghai, which is in China ? LOL
 
I wish I could do what you.
Great work 
 
I love how USA is portrayed as a fat trucker. sigh
 
Another left wing attack on my Country. Stereotyping Americans as all armed militia.
 
have we learned nothing from the food channel about other countries wide range of food they eat. in the 1970's this pic would have been widely accepted as fact.
 
Im a rapper from compton ca followme on instagram chepzhme twitter chepz310 youtube chepztv
 
I did not say that Climate Change is a US problem only +John Yaşar. I am too more afraid of China...
 
Outstanding work that you do always here, I highly admire your work +Ali Adelstein .... sad to see this fast food in the pic ....
 
diet The kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats. +Fauzia Lafemme diet doesnt always mean eating to lose weight. :) 
 
Why is Shanghai labeled as a separate country?
 
You'll need far more than 80 people to document what Indians eat :)
 
Where is the real USA photo? You know, the one with a dumper truck full of food?
 
What richness is, this diversity! and the only thing that catches the humain eye is the difference, what intolerance!!!
+Ali Adelstein  Thanks again for your fights! :)
 
Thanks for the mention +Ali Adelstein.
Once again, more diversity in the comments than the article!
