Eat real food.
It wasn’t until about 100 years ago that we had anything other than whole, natural, real food. Major sociological changes such as the two world wars, women leaving the home for the workplace, and oil becoming very inexpensive have all led to major changes in what is available for us to eat. Namely, the culmination of these changes led to the advent of food products (a.k.a. processed foods), many of which our ancestors would not recognize.
There’s something very, very interesting about the distinction between food and processed food: You literally cannot overeat real food! This is fascinating. One of the major things people have worried about in the past few decades is how to not eat too much. This is the premise behind nearly every diet created. They are all based on a system devised to make sure you don’t eat too much.
And here’s where it gets even more fascinating: all of our focus on diets and limiting portion control has actually been created as a result of the advent of processed foods in the first place! When you eat processed food, you don’t get full like you do when you eat real food, because many of the nutrients have been stripped away in the processes of processing the food.
Don’t believe that you can’t overeat real food? Do these 5 experiments:
- Eat five apples.
- Eat one pound of baby spinach.
- Eat half of a jar of peanut butter.
- Drink a cup of olive oil.
- Have 12 scrambled eggs.
You won’t be able to do it. You will either become nauseous or else the food will simply stop tasting good. Isn’t this amazing? With real food, it tastes great when you need the nutrients and it stops tasting great when you’ve got the nutrients you need! Consider the five-apple experiment. That first apple will taste great. The second one pretty good. The third one okay. Then the thought of eating another apple will be kind of disgusting. Your body has natural mechanisms for hunger and satiety. These natural mechanisms work perfectly when you eat real food. It’s only when you eat a diet heavy in processed food that overeating even becomes a consideration.
