Picture a world without buildings, automobiles, cities, factories, gyms, schools, freeways, airports, shipyards, yes, even electronics. Try to visualize the different landscapes: the jungle, with its huge trees and intense animal noises, a vast savanna, with many types of prairie grasses growing and different big game animals roaming in huge packs, and the desert, with its own unique geography and animals, specifically adapted to its seemingly inhospitable climate.

The most common…
The current Western diet, characterized by foods that are highly processed, deficient in nutrient quality, and high in energy density, has Americans fatter and sicker than ever before
Your body was not designed to have a constant food supply at arm’s reach. The ready supply of calorie-dense foods and its resulting consequence (a generally sedentary lifestyle) has led to an over-fed and under-active, over-weight and under-muscled population that is riddled with sickness and disease.
Fats from animal and vegetable sources provide a concentrated source of energy in the diet; they also provide the building blocks for cell membranes and a variety of hormones and hormone-like substances – fats are critical essential nutritional elements.
