Episode 6: The Insanity of Today’s Food Environment

May 05, 2024

Welcome to Episode 6 of The Road to Carnivore Podcast!

In this 14-minute episode we explore and become aware of how insane our modern food environment is.

If you’re someone who has a hard time resisting food, this concept is a revelation because you find out that to some degree it’s not your fault.

We are constantly surrounded by hyperpalatable things to eat and we are constantly prompted to eat. Every occasion is marked with food.

It wasn’t always like this. Snacking was not a thing before the 1950s.

Beginning to understand all the cues and the nature of our modern food environment is key to making changes in your food choices and getting more in control over your food.

One of the beautiful things about carnivore is that you’re eating foods your body understands.

Meat is really tied in with our satiety signals and our body does a good job of communicating when we’ve had enough steak or chicken. We don’t really overeat these things, and we don’t need to try to stop ourselves. Our body understands this food.
