To answer ‘yes’ to this question is certainly not unusual given we’ve been led to believe that we must eat regularly to keep up our metabolism.
But is this even true? According to Dr Jason Fung, author of ‘The Obesity Code’, it’s not.
It’s a diet fallacy.
A diet dogma that, for years, has never sat well with me either. It just never felt right. Never made sense.
Truth always makes sense, whereas fallacies don’t.
Historically, we would never have eaten this way. As hunter and gatherers, we would never have had unlimited access to food in the way that we do today.
Even if we go back just 50-years, very few people were overweight, and obesity was pretty much non-existent.
Back then the Keto diet didn’t exist, nor the Paleo and if you mentioned the words “clean eating or FODMAP” I’m sure people would have looked at you as though you had two heads!
So why was this? Why were few people overweight decades ago?(more…)
