Historical, Social and Culture Context

Historically Carol covers how peoples eating habits have changed.  She shows that people over time have stopped hunting for food and producing their own food.  Over time people have relied on others to feed them and in today’s fast paced society, fast food seems practical and useful.  There’s just one problem, the majority of it is unhealthy if you eat it all the time.  Carol shows that humans over time have lost a sense of moderation.  Now a day, it is challenging to find food without preservatives.

Socially Carol addresses the everyday challenges people face.  It is more than just eating healthy foods.  Carol explains the context in which someone needs to change their mindset towards health if they are to truly succeed in leading a healthy lifestyle.

Culturally Carol shows how unhealthy eating habits have actually been adapted into cultures.  For example, how her family put tons of salt on food.  Carol was raised that way so she didn’t know anything different.  It was the norm for her.  In America, the morning coffee or donut has become a regiment for certain individuals.

The paleo diet is a diet that allows us to eat as if we were cavemen.  This puts an emphasis on eating natural foods accessible back when cavemen were around.  The foods are basically meats, fruits and vegetables.  Nerdfitness is a website that explains the benefits of the paleo diet and how to follow it. http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/10/04/the-beginners-guide-to-the-paleo-diet/
