It just occurred to me, were our ancestors’ bodies adapted to get nutrition from pills? Or maybe perhaps they were meant to get all their nutrition from whole food.
So my question is: are supplements really THAT necessary or is diet and nutrition more so? I personally think supplements nowadays are being abused too much and not enough vegetables / fruit aren’t being eaten.
So would a paleolithic diet be much more optimal than taking multis, fish oils, and a host of others?
Sure I do admit: EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. That being said, I still am going to include my zma, glucosamine, betaine hcl, and creatine but maybe cut out my fish oils (eat more salmon instead) and multivitamin (eating exclusively fruits, vegetables, nuts, and oats in the morning as my carb sources). Any flaws in this?
Also another question: would protein powders be considered ‘not natural’. as in the protein is meant to interact with the lactose, fat, and casein in milk therefore making it kinda ‘unnatural’ to eat?
gee i worry too much
