Truth: by looking at the anatomy and physiology of the digestive tract, as well as of the whole body, it is easy to come to the conclusion about what is the optimal diet for a given species.
With one stomach; long, curvy intestines; glucose as a preferred fuel; the anatomy of hand of a gatherer and of the body of a climber; dental formula (teeth sequence) perfect for biting on fruits and veggies; the human species is without question a frugivore species, meaning that the optimal diet for humans is a diet of fruits and veggies with small amounts of nuts and seeds.
Even if we knew nothing about the anatomy and physiology of the body, we would come to the same conclusion even in a simpler way, by simply following our natural instinct that attracts us to our natural diet in its original form.
Since we have satisfied the choice of our optimal diet, we can now take a look on the other spheres of life that play an important role in maintaining a high level of health:
Staying at higher longitudes or in higher temperatures and having higher physical activity level, all raise the need for additional water consumption. In any case, it is important to provide clean, filtered or distilled water. If spring water is available, make sure you check if the spring is clean and its water safe health-wise.
Physical activity – being in an excellent physical shape is possible when the body is not healthy from the inside, but it is not possible to be healthy without being in a good physical shape. In other words, there are first-rate athletes who eat extremely unhealthily and while their blood vessels and organs and tissues are not highly healthy due to their poor dietary choices, their external structure and / or physical performance hide it well.
On the other hand, an optimal diet cannot make up for the lack of physical activity.
The take-away message: give physical challenges to your body daily and your efforts will be rewarded with feeling great, having a lean and well sculpted body and enjoying health.
In practice: do your best to contribute to others through your work and feel free to receive their gratitude in the form of money, because in order to have to give to others, you must first invest in yourself and your constant growth.
Food for the physical body is important, but so is food for the mind and soul. Give yourself the best conditions in every field of life and admire your physical and spiritual flourishing, which is the greatest and most valuable wealth.
