If you’re interested in health & fitness, then Art De Vany’s Evolutionary Fitness website is well worth reading. I’ve signed up to his members blog and it’s worth every penny. Lots of really interesting posts that turns conventional thinking on it head.
Evoltionary Fitness is about learning about how our ancestors ate & lived and how we should learn from there lifestyles to improve our health. Your average Westerner is overweight and unhealthy. If you want to get healthy then learning from Art De Vany is a step towards a healthier future. Below is a short extract from one of his blog posts about the hunting of an animal by the Kung San Hunt tribesmen – accompanied by a video of the hunt:
At a critical point of the hunt, a specialist takes over to make the last run, taking the animal to the point of dehydration and exhaustion. This is a technique once used by North American Indians to run down horses, though that run would take more than a day. The human hunting niche in the desert and in the African Savanna is the hot period of the day, a time when predators are resting to stay out of the heat, and the hunted animals are more readily driven to exhaustion from dehydration.
