Does having a 3000 calorie diet hurt the environment?

    Yes.  A 3,000 colorie diet (which is about 1/3 to 1/4 more than what you need to be healthy depending on your age and gender) requires more production to sustain than a leaner diet.  Considering about 40% of the population is undernourished, it is also socially irresponsible to eat too much, since, the more you eat, the less there is to go around.  Also, if a good portion of that 3,000 callories is meat, then it is even more environmentall damaging, since meat-production consumes more energy than vegetable production (cattle-feed, etc).
