The average Homo Sapien now: overweight, out of shape, stressed out, unhappy, sleep deprived and dying from a myriad of preventable diseases. We settled down, formed societies, and the human race progressed to what we are today.The problem is, our bodies never adjusted properly to eating all the grains that we we’re now farming.Instead, you’ll be making things like chicken stir fry and paleo spaghetti.I don’t like keeping track of how much I’ve eaten or obsessing over how many grams of a particular nutrient I’ve had.When there is an absence of carbs (which is how we’re USED to operating), our body will take stored fat and burn THAT for energy in a process called ketogenesis.What I’m trying to tell you is that our bodies are pretty effin’ efficient. Carbs still serve a purpose in our diets, but they’re not essential (check out the Inuit Paradox for a great read on societies that exist without almost any carbohydrates).Although it’s been a really long time, our genetics haven’t changed that much since then.The average Homo Sapien back then: tall, muscular, agile, athletic, and incredibly versatile. A few thousand years ago humans discovered farming, the agricultural revolution took off, and we advanced from hunter-gatherers to farmers.
The government continues to recommend 6-11 servings of grains a day, and people continue to get fatter and fatter by the day.
As Robb Wolf puts it, think of a 100-yard football field.
The first 99.5 yards are how long Homo-Sapiens spent as hunter-gatherers.
The Paleo Diet is an effort to eat like we used to back in the day…WAY back in the day. This means anything we could hunt or find – meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds.
Sorry, the pasta, cereal, and candy will have to go!
