Ever See a Fat Caveman?
Have you ever seen illustrations, drawings or paintings of prehistoric people who were overweight? When primitive mankind is re-enacted in movies, TV and science programs, the actors are never overweight.
That's because an obesity epidemic didn't exist among cave dwellers. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, there was no such thing as a couch potato during the prehistoric era. An ancient man was dependent upon physical activity to survive.
Secondly, they ate for sustenance, whatever they could catch, when hunger began striking. Another reason for why cave people were lean was because their diet consisted of food in its natural state. Their higher the percentage of natural state food in your diet, the healthier you will be.
The caveman's beverage of choice was water; no soda machines or drinks that came in a cardboard carton. And when ancient man drank milk, it was when they were babies and toddlers, drinking their mother's milk, rather than milk from another species of animal.
Take all of these points into consideration when making efforts to be leaner, stronger and healthier.
It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.
