Decolonise your Diet Challenge

Looking for help to set up a challenge to get back to traditional hearing habits and lifestyle. 

In just seven weeks (!!), they lost weight and all their health markers (insulin resistance, blood pressure, cholesterol levels) normalized.
– An Australian study was done with a group of aborigine who had grown up in a traditional hunter gatherer environments, and then moved into urban environments where they adopted modern diets, lifestyles and (unsurprisingly) health concerns such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. They returned to the outback and their hunter gatherer ways for a seven week period.
Interestingly, they were less active than in their urban environments, so exercise was NOT a factor.

– Very simply, as Prof. Mike Richards, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology says, “What we are adapted to [evolutionarily] is not what we are living [or eating] right now.
Anybody interested in developing the challenge idea, please comment below.
