Photos of People Next To Their Daily Food

May 24, 2014 2 min read

This fascinating photography project from photography team/married couple Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio shows people from around the world next to their daily diets. Now, this isn’t a perfect representation of the average caloric intake for people from all walks of life – it’s not meant to be. These people are just strangers that Peter and Faith met on their travels, this isn’t an exact scientific study, just a very cool photography subject, that happens to have some information attached. 23foodpeoplephotosMunna Munna Kailash, Bicycle Rickshaw Driver, India – 2,400 Calories    23foodNoolkisaruni Noolkisaruni Tarakuai, Third Wife of a Maasai Chief – 800 Calories    23foodAhmed Ahmed Swaid Ahmed Ahmed Swaid, Qat Merchant, Yemen – 3,300 Calories   23foodLeland Melvin Leland Melvin, NASA Astronaut, Outer Space – 2,700 Calories   23foodNguyen Theo Nguyen Theo, Rice Farmer, Vietnam – 2,500 Calories   23foodFelipe Adams Felipe Adams, Iraq War Veteran, California – 2,100 Calories     23foodTiffany Whitehead Tiffany Whitehead, Amusement Park Ride Supervisor, Minnesota – 1,900 Calories   23foodRuma Akhter Ruma Akhter, Seamstress, Bangladesh – 1,800 Calories   23foodSaleh Abdul Fadlallah Saleh Abdul Fadlallah, Camel Broker, Egypt – 3,200 Calories   23foodCurtis Newcomer Curtis Newcomer, US Army Soldier, Mojave Desert – 4,000 Calories   23foodDin Memon Din Memon, Taxi Driver, Chicago – 2,000 Calories   23foodConrad Tolby Conrad Tolby, Truck Driver, Illinois– 5,400 Calories   23foodMariel Booth Mariel Booth, Model and Student, New York – 2,400 Calories   23foodKatherine Navas Katherine Navas, High Schooler, Venezuela – 4,000 Calories   23foodSolange Da Silva Correia Solange Da Silva Correia, Rancher’s Wife, Brazil – 3,400 Calories   23foodCoco Simone Coco Simone Finken, Vegetarian, Canada – 1,900 Calories   23foodsWillie Ishulutak Willie Ishulutak, Soapstone Carver, Canada – 4,700 Calories   23foodLan Guihua Lan Guihua, Farmer, China – 1,900 Calories   23foodMaria Ermelinda Ayme Sichigalo Maria Ermelinda Ayme Sichigalo, Mother of Eight, Ecuador – 3,800 Calories   This project is now a photo book entitled “What I Eat: Around The World in 80 Diets”, providing even more information about the subjects. I like the pairing of photos and facts: where they’re from, what they do, how many calories they eat, what their lifestyle is like; but the photos are the portion that turn these people into more than a statistic, it turns this into a statement. What that statement is, I’m not really sure, maybe that food is universal? Culture is intrinsically tied to diet? I’ll have to read the book and find out.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
