The MakeoverMonday in this week has come with a dataset representing the use of land per protein gram.
The scope of the below dataset is to raise the awareness of meat consumption.
If you’re at a healthy weight, don’t lift weights and don’t exercise much, then aiming for 0.36–0.6 grams per pound (0.8–1.3 gram per kg) is a reasonable estimate.
This amounts to:
• 56–91 grams per day for the average male.
• 46–75 grams per day for the average female.
This means that if we consider the below stats – 1 gram of beef protein needs 1.02 sqm:
• an average man can use up to 92.82 sqm per day
• an average female can use up to 76.50 sqm per day
My own makeover
The original chart is a bar chart, so I had to look over some alternatives in order to emphasize the land area and the differences between the beef ant the other types of food.
So I have made a dot matrix.
Why? Because it can highlight both: the size (like 1 square meter of land) and the comparison between dimensions:
