Thinking about takeout tonight? It all adds up as new research reveals Americans spend an incredible $70,000 on takeout and delivery in their lifetime. A new study into the eating habits and diets of 1,000 Americans calculated respondents’ typical spend on ordering out — with as many as 82 percent doing so at least once every two weeks. Just four percent of respondents never get takeout, with those who do spending nearly $100 on food delivery in a typical month — $1,175 on take-out meals every year. When projected across the typical 60-year adult lifespan (18-78) that equates to an incredible $70,500 dished out in the name of takeout.
