- Gain insights into the profound influence of diet on the brain, hormonal equilibrium, aging processes, and the pivotal role of vitamin D in averting cancer and other ailments.
When examining the robust health enjoyed by our pre-agricultural Paleolithic ancestors and contrasting it with the sharp decline in stature, bone density, dental health, and the rise in birth defects, malnutrition, and disease witnessed after the advent of agricultural practices, Nora Gedgaudas reveals the vast disparity between our modern low-fat diets, abundant in grains and carbohydrates, and the high-fat, moderate-protein diets characteristic of our genetic heritage as hunter-gatherers. Not only do these modern diets lead to lifelong weight gain, but they also engender cravings, mood disorders, cognitive challenges, and "diseases of civilization" like cancer, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome (insulin resistance), heart disease, and mental health issues.
Drawing from extensive research in evolutionary physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition, and chronic disease, Gedgaudas applies cutting-edge insights to the fundamental hunter-gatherer diet. She unveils a holistic lifestyle that promotes authentic mind-body health and longevity. Shedding light on the primal origins and physiological rationale for a diet rich in healthy fats, moderate protein, and free from starch, she delves into the nutritional drawbacks of grains, gluten, soy, dairy, and starchy vegetables. Gedgaudas discerns which natural fats foster well-being and which, like canola oil, undermine it. She underscores the crucial role of vitamin D in averting cancer and diseases, emphasizes the significance of saturated fat and cholesterol, and elucidates how diet influences mental health, memory, cognitive function, hormonal equilibrium, and cellular aging.
Packed with step-by-step guidance, recipes, and meal recommendations, this book offers sustainable strategies for embracing a contemporary yet primally-rooted approach to diet and exercise. Achieve reductions in stress and anxiety, weight loss, improved sleep and mood, enhanced energy and immunity, optimized brain function, reduced grocery expenses, and a longer, happier life.
