Manufacturer Description

Think it or not, our DNA is nearly precisely the same as that of our forefathers. While scientific advances in farming, medicine, and technology have actually safeguarded man, to some degree, from dangers such as hunger, disease, and exposure, the fact remains that our cave-dwelling cousins were substantially much healthier than we are. Our paleolithic forefathers did not struggle with heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity. In fact, a bargain of what we deem normal aging is a modern condition that is more comparable to illness than any natural state of growing older.Our predecessors were incomparably better nourished than we are, and were extremely healthy. And certainly none ever yearned for a doughnut, not to mention tasted one. The human preference for sweet tastes and fatty textures was established in an environment where such deals with were unusual, and signaled thick, useful energy. This once-helpful adjustment is the downfall of many a dieter today. It's what makes it hard to resist fats and sugary foods, particularly when they are all around us.We are not living as we were built to live. Our genes were forged in an environment where activity was compulsory-- you were active or you starved or were eaten. This developed strong selective pressure for genes encoding a smart, physically adept individual efficient in very high activity levels. Humans are amongst the most active of species, and we carry energetically pricey brains to boot. Our energy expenses rank high amongst all animals. At least they as soon as did. The New Evolution Diet by Arthur De Vany, PhD is a roadmap back to the better health our forefathers as soon as enjoyed. By eliminating contemporary foods, including carbs, dairy, and all processed foods from our diet plans, we can undo much of the damage triggered by our contemporary food environment. The plan is based upon 3 basic principles:1. Enjoy the satisfaction of food and do not count or restrict calories. Eat 3 satisfying meals a day filled with non-starchy vegetables, fruits, and premium, lean proteins 2. Do not starve yourself, but do go starving episodically, for brief durations, to promote a low fasting blood insulin level and increase metabolic fat-burning. 3. Exercise less, not more, but with more playfulness and intensity. The goal is to create a strong body with a high resting metabolism and a large physiologic capacity to move through life easily-- not to burn calories.
