But the most unique aspect of Eatery is what it does with all the information it gathers from its over half a million users...
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%.
