Unfortunately, humans are slow when it comes to adapting to the evolutionary pressures of eating calorie-dense foods. We clearly did not get the memo that we are too busy these days to hibernate, and that we no longer need to hunt for food. Understanding why humans crave calorie-rich food is important to understanding your own tendencies for sure. But, you can also literally fight your ancient ways with the type of “natural” exercises that our ancestors were involved in on a daily basis, with the exception of maybe Fred Flintstone… Your advantage? You have the Black Eyed Peas, an iPod, air conditioning and readily available post-exercise food and water. Today, go back in time with your workout and put the brakes on your evolutionary tendencies.diet-caveman
