“We purchase and consume 80% of our calories within 5 miles of our home” – Dr. Brian Wansink
The food radius map is the first exercise in Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life by Dr. Brian Wansink. By creating this map in R, I was able to understand my poorly made food choices.
Markers represent places that I regularly visit to eat; there are many other places not represented in this map. With that said, the food radius map still revealed just how inundated my neighborhood was with fast food. And if I were to think about the proportion of that 80% of caloric intake, it may be safe to say a majority of it comes from fast food places - yikes.
