Are you a Homo Sapiens?
As I described in the Inner Neanderthal.., the modern human being, the Homo Sapiens, is supposed to be a thinking being.
I want to talk about that today.
The thinking human must use his neocortex to make clear decisions. However, the problem is that making clear decisions depends on several factors.
I have already stated a number of reasons that you should take into consideration if you want to make a balanced decision.
This time I want to talk about the fact that we should take into consideration that, as a Homo Sapiens, we are a unique being, but since we are herd animals we don’t do that.
To me it is unimaginable, that the food we used to eat in the past, and of which we now know that they are not so healthy, are still being promoted as being healthy. The problem for most people is that they don’t have enough knowledge of nutrition and haven’t learned to go for the best there is.
It is also difficult, because we are bombarded by scientific proven, biologically justified, hypo-allergenic tested foods. And because we’ve learned, ever since we were little, that there’s only one real standard and that’s the scientific standard. And it is just that, that scientific standard, that’s being misused to convince us to make the “right” decision.
My advice to take the right decision when it comes to food, is based on the thought that we must eat what grows in our environment. Our body adapts to this environment in order to survive. That is the Neanderthal inside of us, our primary protector. That primary protector gets help. Because these days we are hunting in the supermarket, where our prey is usually being exposed to us on the shelves, our neocortex helps us to determine what comes out of our direct environment.
It is not so much about what we like, but about what is good for us. But that doesn’t mean you have to eat something you don’t like. There’s enough healthy food from your environment that tastes good.
For example, if you don’t live in the tropics, don’t make the larger part of your nutrition containing tropical fruit.
Most important is that you eat fresh food, so NO food packets, pre-cut, ready to eat meals etc..
Use it to your advantage.
Have fun.
