What do you think is wrong with the modern diet and how can we fix it?
Evolution and our genes solved a problem — that of avoiding starvation — that is very different from the problems we face today. That evolutionary system worked very well until about 100 years ago, at which point food started becoming much more energy-dense (and palatable) and much cheaper to produce and transport. So now, instead of a problem of too little, we have too much, especially with regard to highly processed foods laden with salt and sugar. It’s staggering how calorie-dense these foods can be, and avoiding them is one of the clearest ways to avoid the pitfalls of a modern diet.
