“If we stood on an American football field (100 yards from endzone to endzone) we could represent a timeline of human history in the following way: If we started walking from one end-zone toward the other, we could walk 99.5 yards, and this would represent all of human history except the last 5,000 years or so….99.5 of the 100 yards. Our genetics are virtually indentical to those of our early human ancesters from more than 120,000 years ago. The last 10,000 years, the time in which we transitioned from the hunting and gathering lifeway to agriculture, is the last half yard of our timeline. The last few inches represent television, the internet, refined vegetable oils, and most of what we take to be called “normal” modrn living. Our ancestors were as tall or taller than modern Americans and Europeans, which is a sign they ate a very nutritious diet. They were virtually free of cavities and bone malformations that are common with malnutrition. Despite a lack of medical care, they had remarkably low infant mortality rates, yet had better than 10 percent of their population live into their sixties.”
Robb Wolf is a research biochemist and one of the world’s leading experts with Paleolithic nutrition. He traded one world for another and is owner of CrossFit NorCal while teaching simple nutrition, Paleo. This nutritional way of life supports fat loss, muscle building, and improvement in athletic performance. Cancer, Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, infertility, cavities, acne, depression….the list is exhausting… can be prevented or reversed by emulating the hunter-gather diet: Lean Meat, veggies, nuts, seeds, some fruit. There are no Gimmicks. The Paleo Solution describes the severly negative affects of modern nutrition.
