While reading Chapter 2 I noticed one common trend: diet is adaptive. All the food we eat and the diet we have is due to evolution. We learned to crave the food that is now the norm. One very dangerous thing that became popular and is now included in huge amounts in one’s daily diet is fat. As the book stated, fats were not a very common food group in our ancestor’s societies. They consumed lean meats and other vegetation. This evolution is apparent in our own bodies seeing as how us humans have no neural function that tell us when we have had our limit of fats. As a result the more abundant that fats became, the more people ate. And as the modern world developed societies began to adapt fats into their diet more and more. As I read this I began to see how apparent this was in our own society here at the University and it only hit me more as a walked down Green Street Saturday night trying to figure out what to eat. As I ran through all the restaurants in my head seeing where I could find something healthy to eat, I realized that in our community fat is so abundant. From Noodles and Co, to Panda Express and to Chipotle the choice of greasy, fried foods is superb, leaving little to no options for a healthy meal. If our society turned its focus from cheap, fast foods to healthy, nutritious meals the health in our community and possibly even country would be drastically different. However, because of our busy and speedy lifestyle such change is not very likely proving that food choices are adaptive and that social practices determine diets.
