Massive Health, the developer of Eatery, funnels all that data into an interactive visualization chart showing the overall patterns of how people eat: from morning till night (hint: we get less healthy as the day goes on) and from city to city. The stats are "self-reported data," as The Atlantic notes, meaning they come from Eatery users who have smartphones, but it's still a fascinating attempt to understand global eating habits.
A few interesting stats from Massive's data mining: • 72% of foods are rated healthier by the eater than by everyone else. • The healthiness of the food we eat decreases by 1.7% for every hour that passes in the day. • People who eat at home eat 12.7% healthier than people who eat out. • New Yorkers drink 6.5x more coffee than other cities. • Our friends influence the healthiness of what we choose to eat by 34.5%.
