Salt, Sugar, Fat


We are hardwired to consume salt, sugar and fat.

There’s a historical reason that promotes these present day indulgences. If we understand their origins, they easier to fend off.

In the past, fatty foods acted as calorie reserves during periods of food shortages. Salt retained water and avoided dehydration. Sugar distinguished sweet edible berries from sour poisonous ones*.

That model served us well when we were hunters living in the scarcity age.

We no longer live in that era. A change of mindset is preferred.

Better caloric selection and intake is required to live the present-day hunter’s life.
