We all love to eat –it’s a fundamental activity, necessary to support life, and has been since life first began millions of years ago, when man went out from his cave and found whatever he could to sustain him. At first it was all fairly basic – whatever he could manage to catch, overpower and consume. Then, man found out how to light a fire, and began to cook his food. Archeological evidence confirms that cooking fires began 250,000-500,000 years ago, when ancient hearths, earth ovens, burnt animal bones, and flint appear across Europe and the Middle East.
This was a big advance for civilization, for we learnt that cooking makes food tastier, as well as easier to digest. And as the cooking fell to the women while the men were out hunting, they inevitably experimented, and learnt that they could cook foods in different ways, with many goodies added, to make it even more palatable and give it different tastes. And over thousands of years we’ve learnt that some tastes please us more than others.
Yes, eating is one of life’s great pleasures. But it’s not always easy to choose the foods that will keep you healthy and slim, and still give you the tastes that you love.
We all love the taste of good food, the foods that we enjoy. We love the feelings it gives us – of satisfaction, well-being and abundance, and we don’t want to give that up. And now you don’t have to give up sweet treats and other favourite foods in order to become slim and healthy, and to stay that way .
