recently, the lancet global health sub journal published the nutrition statistics of 195 countries in the world from 1980 to 2013 –

,

,

. Generally speaking, there is a significant gap between the rich and the poor in the global nutritional structure. From a longitudinal perspective, the decrease of carbohydrate intake and the increase of fat and protein intake are the general trend. What is the status of

and

in the world? Let’s see.

,

, ,

,

protein and fat are the hard truth.

,

,

,

the research of lancet first statistics the difference of daily intake of carbohydrate, protein and various fatty acids according to the different economic income. In the six graphs above

and

, the gray dotted line is the world average level. SDI is a social demographic index, which is used to evaluate the development of countries and regions in this study. Therefore, the blue line is the high development country, the green line is the medium high country, the dark purple is the medium country, the orange is the medium low development country, the purple line is the low development country.

and

are shown in the figure. Generally speaking, from 1980 to 2010, the average intake of the world is increasing. However, the intake of carbohydrates in high developing countries and regions is not the highest. It has even decreased since 2000 and dropped to the world average level after 2010. However, medium and high SDI (green line) has been far higher than high SDI in carbohydrate, and even low and medium SDI (Orange Line) has exceeded high SDI.

and

however, excluding carbohydrate intake, high SDI has always occupied the highest position in protein and all kinds of fat, especially polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is more important that in terms of fat and protein, countries and regions with moderate development, including medium-sized ones, have not exceeded the world average.

and

are not difficult to see, high level society and low level, from the perspective of nutrition intake, the hard standard is protein and fat. What is the level of

and

in China?

and

are not much nonsense. We can directly see the figure of

1 total energy intake of

,

and

. The figure above shows the average energy intake per person per day in 2013, and the global average is about 2710 kcal (kcal). 2710 kcal in yellow gear. China’s position in the picture is 2250-2500 kcal (sub light blue), the same level as India. Not only did it fail to reach the average level, but Mongolia, Russia and Brazil did not catch up Developed countries such as the United States, Canada and Italy burst the energy meter, exceeding 3500 kcal. The United Kingdom, Germany and Northern Europe also exceeded the average value and were in orange state.

in general, at least until 2013, the average energy intake, we Failed.

2 carbohydrates

although Chinese people mainly eat carbohydrates such as rice and noodles, their average daily intake of carbohydrates is still worse than that of most developed and developing countries in the world The average carbohydrate intake of the United States, Canada, Australia and Russia is higher than that of China. However, some parts of northern Europe also have the same level of carbohydrate intake as China

,

3 protein

,

,

in terms of intake, protein is the home of developed countries. The Nordic countries, Australia, the United States, Canada and the European Union are among the highest intakes. China’s protein intake is similar to that of Mexico, Mongolia and some countries in the Middle East and North Africa, and higher than those in India and Southeast Asia. It is worth mentioning that Japan is a relatively rare developed country where protein intake does not reach 400 kcal or more. Although there is a gap between China and developed countries, the global average of protein intake is 285 kcal, and China at least exceeds the average.

4 saturated fat

China is in the 150-200 kcal range, which is lower than that of Russia, just like India. The United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and other countries are basically at orange and red levels. Saturated fat mainly comes from animal fat. The global average level of

and

is 215 kcal

5 monounsaturated fat

China is still blue, but it is better than India, with an average of 200-250 kcal per person per day. The global average level of

and

monounsaturated fatty acids is about 225 kcal per day, and China has just passed.

6 polyunsaturated fat

in addition to the United States, only Libya has achieved an average of more than 160 kcal per person per day. But I don’t know what happened after the war in Libya

polyunsaturated fats include deep-sea fish oil like thunder

and

intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids is relatively low in most parts of the world. The global average level is 55 kcal. No one lives every day. China is in the range of 40-60 kcal, which is likely to reach the standard

intake of

1. Although the carbohydrate intake of

1 is lower than that of the United States, the proportion of

in the diet is more appropriate than that of the developed countries in Europe and America. There are problems with eating habits. For example, the proportion of carbohydrates in Japan and South Korea is similar to that in China.

and

however, the high proportion of carbohydrate is a sign of low development. The highest proportion of carbohydrate intake in daily diet is in sub Saharan Africa. The proportion of

2 protein in

,

,

although the total protein intake in China is not high, due to the low average energy intake, the proportion of protein in the total amount is not high. Although the absolute value of protein intake in the United States is high,
