W8MD’S THREE THINGS WRONG WITH OUR DIET

3 things wrong with our diet

We are not adapted to eating a grain based diet

Agriculture is a relatively recent development having been in existence for only about 10,000 years considered small in evolutionary perspective. As a result, humans have not fully adapted to eating a diet rich in grain based carbohydrate rich foods leading to

Insulin Resistance which affects over two thirds of all adults. This increases unhealthy belly fat leading to increased inflammation.

Lack of Antioxidants

Before the modern food processing era, our diet used to have more than 50 percent unprocessed and uncooked food items such as colored fruits, vegetables, and other natural ingredients that are high in antioxidants such as polyphenols leading to increased inflammation.

Omega 3 to Omega 6 Ratio

The third thing that leads to increased inflammation is the ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids used to be 1:1 but is now at 1:16 which also increases inflammation. Remember, inflammation is the root cause of most human diseases.
