Al-Rai daily reported that the Monitor website published the results of the Oxford University "Our World in Data" index, which measures the amount of food consumed by individuals (calculated in kilocalories). In first place is Bahrain for not only per capita food consumption but also for exceeding the average maximum daily intake of 4,000 kcal.

The top place was occupied last year by Ireland and the United States. Kuwait ranked 33rd in the world, fifth in the Arab world, and second in the Gulf in terms of average calorie consumption, with an average of 3,387 kilocalories per day. With 35 percent of the Turkish population suffering from obesity, the country ranked fifth in the world in terms of life expectancy reduction and negative effects on health.

Yemen ranked 180th in the world with an average daily calorie consumption of 1,957 kcal, well below the recommended 2,000 kcal. The index was based on data from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, as they represent food available for consumption at the level of retail sales only, and does not include waste at the level of consumption.

Central African Republic was ranked at the bottom of the list of countries consuming the least calories per capita. In general, Arab countries ranked lower, with Sudan, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq ranking very low.
