Shahnaz Hossain Begum rinses tiny fish for dinner at a village well in Bari Majlish, an hour outside Dhaka, Bangladesh. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her day's worth of food for a typical day in December was 2000 kcals. She is 38 years of age; 5 feet, 2 inches tall; and 130 pounds. Her micro-loan-financed small businesses have enabled her to build six rooms that she rents out, each for $8.65 (USD) a month. MODEL RELEASED.
