Be Overweight – Don’t Be Overweight, Your Happiness Is Up To You!
For tens of thousands of years there was a genetic advantage to storing body fat. Being fat was an advantage to your great, great, great, great grandparents, to the many generations of you family long before your great, great, great grandparents. It may still, in some ways, be an advantage to you too right now.
The fact is being fat, or as we often rather call it, “being overweight” or “obese” is not favorable right now. For many of us being overweight puts us at risk for many potentially dangerous health problems. What once protected us, now is dangerous for us, this a new and relatively modern twist of fates. For tens of thousands years your ancestors lived from hand to mouth. They ate when food was plentiful and they starved when it was not. They lived through droughts, famines, wars. For our ancestors having a large amount of stored body fat was a blessing, and in many cases, even a life saver. Being obese was an asset and a formidable protective devise their bodies offered to keep them protected and greatly helped to ensure their survival. Without this ability it would be less likely that you would be here today.
Most of your ancestors worked from sunrise to sunset. The walked ten, twenty, even thirty or more miles a day. They carried heavy loads. They had to be physically and emotionally strong. They were not likely unhappy being fat for they knew that this protected them. Genes for having a strong body and for storing lots of body fat protected them from starvation, allowed them to be successful and thrive. It allowed them to build great muscle bulk and have lots of energy and stamina to work all day at physically taxing jobs.
Today, increased body fat is not just unpopular, it is unhealthy. Along with our sedimentary lifestyle, our low physical activity jobs, and the fact that we are no longer walking or working at hard labor has become an outright danger to our life and overall well-being. Our risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke, arthritis, diabetes even anxiety and depression is more than significant and has actually become life-threatening.
Here at the dawn of the 21st century we no longer want to be obese. We would rather be muscular, well-proportioned, strong, emotionally stable, sexually enticing and healthy looking. We don’t want to be overweight or look unhealthy, but our ancestors’ genes still control some of how we’ll ultimately turn out. Fortunately, we have choices.
