I became incredibly engaged in a discussion about low-fat/high-fat with an individual on youtube yesterday. I said something about the tropics/equator/human development and I was wreck-less in how I said it so it was translated as garbage.
The opposing individual responds that during our development we would have had times of HCLF during summer but likely would have switched to a more HFLC during winter.
I am not a historian so when thinking about history and how it connects to our diet, it easily confuses and overwhelms me. I do know that the most recent evidence shows we ate the largest percentage of our diet from leafy greens basically >>http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-problem-with-the-paleo-diet-arg...
How do you all feel about this seasonal switch up of calories ratios? It makes sense when thinknig of early humans surviving through the winter (when they were in actually cold regions!) but at the same time not because if we truly did inhabit the equatorial area for a large part of our development, than we would not have experienced winter.
I am looking for information I may have missed or have scrambled because of my recent dealings with high-fat advocates.
That was quick! Were you able to find it on youtube or did the library have a copy? I know great talks right! Oughta be on national TV right after Forks Over Knives! "And now stay tuned for a special presentation of The Pleasure Trap." :D
Yeah, youtube videos gave a general idea of what he is talking about. I did, however, come across the original 3 talks. ....not sure on the legality of the latter
Lots less time and energy spent than ordering through the library and them having to truck it around. ;)
So Very True :) no one had to do any extra work for me to see them! :)
Here is the video that includes the discussion. High-fat advocates are truly something else.
