Chen Zhen is a law student in Shanghai China. The caloric value of her typical day's worth of food in June was 2600 kcals. She is 20 years of age; 5 feet, 5 inches tall and 106 pounds. Chen Zhen eats at KFC 3 times a week and what she eats depends on the coupons that she and her friends gather to defray the cost of the meal. The rest of her meals in the course of a week are largely Chinese and traditional. She eats simple fare at her university campus cafeteria--soups with rice and vegetables. Her grandparents and father go without meat throughout the week so they can serve it to her on the weekends when she's home from school.
