Paleo 110: Another increasingly popular approach to the paleo diet has been a method described as Evolutionary Fitness by Dr. Art De Vany. Similar in many ways to CrossFit, it is even linked from the main CF HQ page. We may have mentioned the doctor's work in the past but many of his health/fitness/nutrition program's tenets bear repeating (paraphrased):
Everyone has to find their own way within the paradigm of "fitness". There is no one size fits all, because everyone is different genetically and behaviorally. Many who may struggle with their weight or health come with a long history of difficulties with food or a disinterest in exercise. Others may be here to stave off aging. Still others may wish to achieve superior bodies or athletic performance. There is a way for all of them.
Weight problems or metabolic diseases are the result of choices we make. Virtually every chronic modern disease is the result of choices we make over our life times. If you don’t take personal responsibility for your choices you will not accomplish your goals. Your choices need to be better informed and many of us have been led astray by the bewildering, conflicting and incorrect advice. Human form and energy metabolism are adaptations to the evolutionary environment. Virtually all of our human and prehuman ancestors lived as hunter-gatherers in an austere environment.
In a modern world abundant in cheap and readily available carbohydrate, insulin resistance sets us up for hyperinsulemia (chronically elevated insulin) which is a major factor in almost all modern diseases.
Hyperinsulemia and hypoexertion (wasting away of the lean mass of the body through inactivity) are the most important health risks (the National Institutes of Health) in Western cultures.
In the conventional meaning, being on a ”diet” implies that you are restricting calories (as in a prescription) and eating in a habitual manner. Evolutionary eating is not a diet, but a natural way of eating. Properly considered, the purpose of a diet is to provide nutrition and maintain health, not to lose weight.
Don't eat in a habitual and highly regulated way. Variation in foods and caloric intake is an essential element of natural eating. Your food should be high in protein (by modern standards, but moderate in terms of the protein intakes of hunter-gatherers), moderate in fat (but balanced in Omega 3 and 6 composition), and low in carbohydrate. It contains no grains, milk, beans or processed foods. There is no caloric restriction because you eat only nutritionally dense, low calorie food and your appetite is reset to become a healthy guide to your nutritional needs.
Most ﬁtness programs, whether aerobics or weight training, are too unvaried and routine; they result in overtraining, depletion of the body’s antioxidant stores, compromised immunity, and are a chronic load on the body. They take too much time and are ineffective. Dieting has a 95% failure rate wastes lean body mass, and is unhealthful.
