What I Eat:Around the World in 80 Diets, offers an unbiased look into how environment, culture, and activity informs the food we eat.  Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio have gathered an extensive and detailed portrait of a day in the life of 80 individuals from 30 countries, accompanied by stunning photographs and essays about how what we eat affects us and the world.  The subjects are diverse, including a Massai herdswoman during a drought, a sumo wrestler that stays away from chips and sweets, and a British stay at home mom who snacks on junk food. Their overall goal is not to tell you what to eat, but rather to help you look at your own diet and decide what works best for you. For more information, visit menzelphoto.com.  Available on Amazon


“What I Eat…does not judge. It simply presents. …Images of healthy people and catastrophically unhealthy people — you can’t get them out of your head. Somehow, without instructing you to think harder about the choices you make when you eat, this book makes you do exactly that. The reason: You wonder what your own portrait would look like.” —Esquire, Sept 2010 “Through vivid photographs and descriptions… What I Eat offers a new perspective on nutrition, the relationship between diet and culture, and how globalization has changed how we look at food.” —USA Weekend
