The hot bar at Whole Foods did not exist for most of human history. For the longest time, food was scarce and not particularly appetizing. Things changed when the global food system shifted to producing an overabundance of the good stuff. Problem is, evolution hasn’t caught up with the shift, and our brains are still operating in woolly mammoth mode.
Counter the Cravings
The best thing you can do for your diet is to cut down on processed foods. These foods encourage overeating due to their high-calorie concentration and quick consumption time. If you stick with unprocessed ingredients, you’re likely to lose weight without consciously restricting your intake. Results will likely include better sleep quality, clearer skin, lower blood pressure, and increased focus.
