Scientists know that every living organism on planet Earth has a diet specific to their species. But somewhere along the way, we forgot about the perfect human diet that evolution has prescribed for us.
In this video, Eric Edmeades, nutrition expert and Founder of WildFit explains why we, as a species, are getting sicker and how we can reclaim our power over our eating habits.
The Perfect Human Diet Prescribed By Evolution
Have you ever wondered why “going on a diet” never really works?
We try to use our willpower to eat what we can eat and avoid what we can’t eat — just to gain back all the weight a few weeks later.
This type of yo-yo dieting is frustrating in more ways than one. While the failure to stick to the “diet” leaves us feeling emotionally drained, it also takes a physical toll, too.
That’s because modern diets don’t adhere to the perfect human diet prescribed for us by evolution.
Lasting transformation is not about following a bunch of restrictive rules. It’s about changing our psychology and our relationship with food.
As Eric Edmeades, Author of Mindvalley’s WildFit Quest says:
“I’m not interested in universal health care. I’m interested in universal self-care.”
What is the perfect human diet?
Many new eating fads promise lightning fast results. And while you may lose weight in the short term, these eating trends lack the structural, science-backed approach needed for true longevity.
It’s not about short term changes for quick results. It’s about long-lasting changes for permanent results.
And weight loss is only the tip of the iceberg.
Because when you change your relationship with food, you change your lifestyle. And when you change your lifestyle, you change your life.
Humans were designed to eat specific foods in specific quantities each and every day. But we’ve wandered so far from our natural evolutionary diet that we don’t even know what it feels like to be well and healthy anymore.
For example: did you know that over 65% of the adult human population is lactose intolerant?
We’ve become so used to ignoring the natural signals coming from our bodies that we don’t even realize how unwell we are.
When you experience true health and wellness in your own body, that’s when you’ll start seeing and feeling the difference.
That’s when you’ll see the difference between the perfect human diet and the formulated, mass-produced junk we ingest because we’re short on time, money, or enthusiasm for good food.
