It is entirely understandable why the primal would stuff himself with whatever food he could get his hands on, literally not knowing when he'd get to eat again. Unfortunately, we've carried over that practice, even though we know that the next meal is in the pantry and it's microwaveable.
I totally agree with what your saying. My point was more that there are powerful instincts built into us that we need to consciously overcome if we want to get healthy and stay healthy.
Also, it doesn't help that the nutritionests keep changing their mind on what is "healthy" and what is "unhealthy".
