    In 1970, Americans spent one-third of their money spent on food away from home, whereas, in 2001, this had increased to nearly half (47 percent) according to a paper from the RAND corporation. Food away from home more sugar and fat

    “Away-from-home-foods tend to be more energy-dense and contain more fat and sugars than foods at home,” the paper notes.

    197 calories more per day due to higher fat and sugar content

    “USDA researchers have calculated that if food away from home had the same average nutritional densities as food at home in 1995, Americans would have consumed 197 fewer calories per day and reduced their fat intake to 31.5% of calories(instead of the actual 33.6%.”
