Best Answer

United Nations FAO says the average American consumes 3770 calories for 2001-2003.

This number is much greater than many other sources, for example the American Cancer Society, which lists it (as of 2000) at 2618 for men and 1877 for women.

The reason the United Nations FAO number is higher is because it includes not just the calories Americans are eating but also the calories wasted to "spoilage, plate waste, and cooking". See the USDA Agriculture Factbook.
