A new year renews fitness revs – and with it, new nutritional diet. 2017 YouGov survey found 37% of Americans Set the "Year Year" resolutions[ing] healthier, "said the same percentage" for more exercise. "Diet and exercise resolutions can be stable, specific diet and physical exercise, past two decades, Crossfit, Zumba, Paleo Diets, Veganism, Atkin, Yoga and Pilates- They had great ups and downs.
It is difficult to distinguish the noise signal when determining when healthy habits are optimal. Most of the health research discoveries, A new study of modern and old hunters and groups of groups suggests that there is no optimal diet for human health. Rather, they determine how human beings around the world define life in a healthier life.
"All our species started the evolution of hunter-gatherer communities," explains Herman Pontzer, lead researcher and Associate Professor of Anthropology of Evolutionary University of Duke, Salon. "We were going to hunt and collect ourselves, and understand that understanding how our physiology works is important in hunting and gathering and how it affects our bodies and our health."
The study published by the Obesity magazine analyzed lifestyle, diets and physical activity among hundreds of huntsmen and modern collectors, which were ancient societies.
The study notes that the hunter-gatherer communities are aimed at healthcare professionals. In fact, they can provide a better understanding of what is called "disease of civilization" because they are explicitly linked to the diet. According to the study, obesity and metabolic disease are rare among hunter-gatherer communities, both modern and old, as well as type 2 diabetes. The causes of death in the Hunter-gatherer community are usually traumas, including accidents and violence or acute infections. The percentage of deaths due to non-communicable diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, is very small, but this is not enough to eat. All the communities studied in the study had an extraordinary health, based on many diets.
So what does a healthy hunter-gatherer community do? Pontzer says that with the indigenous Hadza group in Tanzania it can be a great deal of physical activity.
"If you live with a hunter-hunter, life is so active," Salon told her. "You are moving your feet all day long – you have not been lazy, and that has greatly impressed me."
Fetishization of "peasant diet" of rural farmers Paleo diet is known as a diet, based on food consumed in the Palaeolithic era. Pontzer says that this diet is not a natural "diet" for humans.
"Someone argues that a true human natural diet is wrong," he said. "Humans have been healthy through different diets, it's very variable."
In paper-based communities, all the meat, fish and vegetable mixes are eaten. In general, they consume more fiber than the average American. As for carbohydrates, community communities have vegetables and vegetable plants, which make carbon consumption more blood sugar. This means that they do not eat sugar. Honeycomb is a big part of the small hunter group, the researchers explained.
For example, among Hadza hunters, those who referred to the Tanzanian indigenous group, which are called a million-year diet, range from 15 to 20% honey to the study states. The amount of calories consumed by Hadza is similar to that of the American average, but the variety of foods differs, Hadza has small food selections and does not design processed foods and sugars.
According to the study, what you eat and how they are used are related and important to live a healthy life, but perhaps not as the society industry understands. As the study tells you, exercise allows you to act as a regulator of energy spent each day. If the body does not use energy that can not be inflamed. This would contradict the fact that "industrialized populations tend to have a less metabolic illness because they have less active and therefore spend less calories on the day", as the study says.
"Exercise may also help regulate appetite by improving energy balance and energy intake and maintaining a balance," says the study. "Exercise rules ensure more attention".
Researchers focused on other aspects of lifestyle hunters that could affect human health.
"Close friendships and family ties, low levels of social and economic inequality, and a lot of outside time are typical of huntsmen gatherers and small-scale societies". "Their lack of modern societies is a set of chronic social stress and non-transmissible diseases, including metabolic disease and obesity. We strive to understand the roots of modern evolution of disease, today and in our collective past we strive to integrate and holistic understanding of life and health of hunters and collectors."
The study does not suggest that the industrialized world needs a backdrop for hunter-gatherer diets. Pontzer has said that finding hunters who have lost their everyday life.
"You could have a lesson to stay on your feet and move on as much as you can every day, how much you eat and eat when you eat food that is never full, eat a lot of fiber … all of these are good places to start," he said.
In other words, do not emphasize the Atkins points counting or by specifying 10,000 steps a day. Wide strokes – calories, steps and sugar than obsessive counting – seems to be a key to health.
