Hadza - The Hunter Gatherer

You too could look like this soon! lol … Don’t expect zero carbs!

I’ve not read this properly… I’m hoping there’s some diet related stuff?

Hadza article CNN no science


This was interesting :slight_smile: Especially eating the bee larvae with the comb, I never did that :smiley: But that still isn’t the most energy dense food, sugar isn’t very energy dense compared to fat and honey is only 80% sugar. Fat tissue is way more energy dense.

I honestly couldn’t care less about the diversity of my gut biome as long as I feel right and am healthy. But a life eating too much fiber (even if I could do it) wouldn’t be nice for me.

I would like the experiences of someone who more like me so 1-2 mugs of baobab pulp wouldn’t be enough for long term satiation… I possibly would get instant sugar poisoning from the honey too but I could handle that level, hunger would be my problem. (I would totally try the porcupine. with some butter brought with me because I like to get my fat calories.)

Is it a fact that super diverse gut biome makes our life longer and healthier? It doesn’t sound logical to me. I would think it makes us more ready for various things we may need for survival but if I just eat my usual good food in abundance, I don’t need that.

Interesting article. It seems it may not take a lot of time for our microbiomes to adjust to changes in diet. I wonder if anyone has studied the microbiomes of the Inuit who still eat their traditional diets?


And what if the Hadza diet gave someone from another place some new bacteria? I bet the Hadza would get new ones elsewhere too, why would it mean anything good…? And whatever I wrote before. I don’t see the logic in the conclusion.

I’ve heard the Maasai have no incidents of cancer! …but when they migrate to Nairobi looking for work they adopt the local diet and get cancer like everyone else.

Well I’m out then.

I’m done eating any kind of insect larvae. I had silkworm larvae once in Korea and that was nasty…never again.


I only ate crickets but they had a spicy flour coating on them so they tasted flour, ew…
I want some pure crickets. But I would try various larvae if my eyes would tell me it looks promising… :smiley: Experience, I value that.

A dress like that makes my butt look big. :rofl:
