The Key Diet-related Changes

Major shifts in diet are taking place:

The overall shifts in energy density are remarkable. In a decade the energy density of food consumed by Chinese adults aged 20-45 increased by over 13%

Added caloric sweeteners (mainly sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup) increases across the developing world are equally dramatic, with an extra 100-300 kcals per day among all individuals in each low and moderate income country over the past 25 years

Large increases in animal food source intake, and reductions in fiber and total fruit and vegetable intake
