This chart explains the American burger intake of the average person annually. The average American will consume about 71 pounds of ketchup each year, which is more than 1 pound a week. Hamburgers are Americans' favorite food, so it should come as no surprise that they consume a lot of these on a regular basis.

The average burger consumer intakes about 61 pounds of beef, 9 billion pounds of cheese and about 2.2 billion dollars worth of lettuce. The numbers are pretty astonishing but if the average person eats around 2 cheeseburgers in a sitting, this number starts to make a lot sense. The chart goes into detail about America’s favorite cheeses, buns and favorite patty size. The American burger intake chart is definitely an eye opener.
