THE ANCESTORS DIET:
THE FOOD WARS ARE BEING FOUGHT AT DINNER TABLES AND WEBSITES THROUGHOUT WESTERN SOCIETY.

AND THERE ARE SO MANY DIETS OUT THERE CONTENDING FOR OUR FAVOR.

WHO IS WINNING THE FOOD WARS?

THOSE WHO ARE INVENTING NEW DIETS.

AND THE CASUALTIES ARE PEOPLE BEING BOMBARDED WITH ONE DIET FAD AFTER ANOTHER.

WHILE SOME DIETS SAY NO FAT OTHERS SAY THE MORE FAT THE BETTER. 

OTHER DIETS SAY WE HAVE TO STOP EATING ANY FOOD CONTAINING GLUTEN

STILL OTHERS SAY WE WERE CAVEMEN ONCE SO WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE CAVES AND EAT THERE.

AND OTHERS WANT US TO EAT DIFFERENT FOODS DEPENDING UPON OUR BLOOD TYPE – MEANING A FAMILY OF FOUR MAY REQUIRE THE PREPARATION OF THREE OR FOUR DIFFERENT MEALS.

WHAT IS CONSISTENT AMONG ALL THE DIETS IS THAT THEY EACH CONTAIN SIGNIFICANT ANECDOTAL OPINION.

BUT THERE IS ONE DIET THAT IS NOT SUCH A DIET FAD.

AND THAT IS THE DIET OUR ANCESTORS ATE FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS.

IT IS THE DIET OUR BODIES WERE DESIGNED TO EAT.

IT IS THE DIET PROVEN BY RESEARCH TO PREVENT CANCER, HEART DISEASE, DEMENTIA AND NUMEROUS OTHER DISEASE CONDITIONS, INCLUDING OBESITY.

IN FACT IT IS THE MOST STUDIED DIETARY PATTERN BECAUSE THE HEALTHIEST HUMANS HAVE BEEN EATING THIS DIET FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

AND IT IS ONE OF THE EASIEST DIETS TO STAY ON.

STUDIES SHOW THIS DIET IS NOURISHING,  SUSTAINABLE AND DELICIOUS.

IN FACT IT IS ONE OF THE LEAST REGIMENTED DIETARY PROTOCOLS.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM THE DIET THAT OUR OLDEST AND HEALTHIEST ANCESTORS ATE?
