Now I’ve seen many an animal documentary, (I love all that sir David Attenborough’s stuff) and I’ve been to my fair share of zoo’s too but I’ve never bared witness to an overweight wild animal
Not even a slightly chubby one for that matter
Well, saying that I may have lied a wee bit their as I have seen a few overweight animals but unfortunately they’ve all been of the domesticated kind.
I’m sure you might have seen the old fat cat, flabby flopsie the big bellied bunny or the mutt with the chunky butt haven’t you?
You see this only happens as the animal is given food that is pretty unnatural to it
I’m talking processed tinned meats, biscuits and even pet treats
In the wild all animals would’ve had to hunt and forage for their foods
They would’ve had to travel or keep on the move in order to stay fed and to stay warm
They eat when and what they needed too, gorging when food was in abundance and then fasting when the food was unavailable
But they would keep living and keep moving until their next meal comes along
This my friend is nature
Can you imagine what sort of state nature would be in if you tampered with their meals and fed them foods unnatural to them?
Would the Tiger be so stealthy?
And would we face a different looking and not so graceful gazelle?
All you have to do is imagine…..
You see that’s what has happened to us humans
We used to hunt, we used to move, we used to forage and we used to live better
Up until around 10,000 years ago when agriculture became the norm
People then settled
Crops began to be harvested
Technology became greater
We became lazier…..
We became fatter!
Just like some of our domesticated pets have
They no longer need to move, in fact some only do when they are taken out by their owners
And they no longer need to hunt as it’s right their for them on a plate
Same place, same time, a pile of unnatural feed that is going to alter their make up
Just like it has us
We are no longer the lean warriors that roamed the lands hunting foraging, feeding and fasting
We have now become a race of greed, gluttony and laziness
Now you might think I’m being harsh
But am I?
The world is becoming a fatter place with obesity on the rise
The UK is now the fattest country in Europe
The statistics say that the standard body size has now become overweight 🙁
And is it any wonder when we are surrounded with so many poor food choices?
Man they are everywhere and they have caused our eating habits to change
In fact our mind sets have been changed too as we believe these foods to be the norm
That they are actually good for us!
And with food manufacturers openly lying to us you can see why so many believe their myths and lies can’t you
Anyway my point is, if you change an animals food supply you are going to change the animal
I sure hope that what agriculture, technology and industry has done to us humans doesn’t ever do the same to nature
Can you really imagine the joy of going to a fat farm full of sluggish mammals loping around
Or watching planet fat with Sir David Attenborough where he seeks out overweight animals that don’t really do a lot
Doesn’t sound that entertaining does it
Well to me it doesn’t to me
I’m NOT LOVIN’ IT!!!
Hence why I’m so passionate about my job
Helping people to change their mind set about what they put in their mouths
Changing their diets to a cleaner and leaner way of eating
Altering their lives so that they can live longer, healthier and leaner
After all it’s not hard
In fact it’s piss easy really
You just live they way our hunter-gather ancestors lived
Haha, I’m not meaning to go live in a cave and hunt the neighbourhood cats for food here though
I’m meaning eating cleaner, drinking more water, stressing less, sleeping more, moving more, lifting something heavy now and again and sprinting once in a while
Do this and you will reap the benefits
You will become like your natures counterparts, lean, agile, healthy, full of energy and content!
