Health and nutrition expert, Robb Wolf, returns to the program this week to discuss the findings contained in his new book Wired To Eat.
As human animals, our genetic programming pushes us to optimize caloric intake while minimizing the effort expended. The food industry knows this, and has for decades been developing “foods” scientifically engineered to appeal to that evolutionary drive. The result? An explosion in obesity, chronic health conditions like diabetes, and a society shamed by itself.
Robb’s guidance revolves around working with, not against, our primal wiring. Eating more, but of the fuel our body truly needs, is much better than merely eating less of the processed gunk sold to us in most aisles of the grocery store.
But — and this is key — not all of us are wired to eat the same foods. There is a remarkable amount of variety at the individual level, so understanding which foods work best for you is extremely important. Fortunately, it’s relatively straightforward to identify which foods these are, and to design your own customized nutrition menu for a future of better health.
