As described above the annual average meat consumption per capita is country specific, thus in the approximation of the total meat consumption value it is an important factor.

Average number of kcal per 100 g meat

Meat type Kcal/100 g of meat
Chicken 150
Pork 350
Beef 250
Lamb 220
Fish 125

These values can be used to get a figure of the total calorie consumption that results from the food based on meat.

The average weight/mass of each animal

Animal Average weight in lbs Average weight in kg
Chicken 4.67 2.12
Pork 220.46 100.00
Beef 1,102.31 500.00
Lamb 22.05 10.00
Fish 1.10 0.50

Example of a calculation

Let’s illustrate an example of a male from United States, aged 35 eating daily meat. You will get the following shocking results:

Just imagine how much meat you have been eating:

In average you consume up to 327lbs of meat per year (no matter of type), which is equal to 149kg of meat per year.

So far you consumed in total 8,187lbs of meat, which is equal to 3,714kg of meat.

Assuming the whole quantity of meat consumed so far consists of chicken then you ate 1,749 chickens (each weighting around 5lbs (or 2.12kg).

If the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of pork only then you ate 37 pigs (each weighting around 22lbs (or 100kg).

If the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of beef then you ate 7.43 cow/s (each weighting around 1,102lbs (or 500kg).

If the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of fish then you ate 7,427 fishes(each weighting around 1lbs (or 500g).

If the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of lamb only then you ate 371 lambs (each weighting around 22lbs (or 10kg).

Just imagine how many calories consumed:

In case the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of chicken then in total you ate 5,570,370 kcal.

In case the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of lamb then in total you ate 8,169,876 kcal.

In case the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of pork then in total you ate 12,997,530 kcal.

In case the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of beef then in total you ate 9,283,950 kcal.

In case the quantity of meat consumed so far consists of fish then in total you ate 4,641,975 kcal.
