Food prices are expected to continue to rise.
That could translate into an average 2,700 fewer calories a day per person by 2034.
The new data was released today by the nonprofit food advocacy group Next Big Truth.
The group says the number of calories per capita is the single biggest determinant of weight gain.
The data also shows that Americans are eating more and exercising more than ever before.
According to the Food and Nutrition Board, the average American ate an average 12.4 pounds of food per person in 2014, up from 9.3 pounds in 1990.
That means more than 7.6 billion calories are now eaten each day in the U.T. that could translate to an additional 2,100 calories per day per capita by 2040.
That would be nearly 40 percent of what Americans are currently consuming.
If Americans are exercising as much as they used to, that would mean a total of 9.5 billion calories a year could be consumed.
The data also suggests that Americans’ diet has become more diverse.
According to the USDA, people are consuming more fruit, vegetables and grains than they were in the 1980s and 1990s.
According to Next Big Facts, the number and percentage of calories Americans are getting from foods in the form of sugar, fat and salt have doubled.
