The Missing Link to Nutritional Chemistry

The evolutionary mismatch theory states that the ancient conditions under which our human biochemistry evolved 200 million years ago are same the conditions required by us today to achieve optimal biological and metabolic function. Basically our physiology was well adapted to certain stressors, like movement, cold, heat and periods without food. The absence of these stressors will result in the slow deterioration of health and will ultimately lead to disease. Basically our current comfortable modern lifestyle no longer matches our ancient biochemistry. This is a major threat to our well being. You see, our body stills requires constant exposure to movement, cold, heat, and periods without food to maintain our homeostasis which keeps us elastic, warm, cool and strong. Our modern way of living leads our whole body to become fragile, weak and diseased. Here are the reasons why. Movement is the spark plug of our biochemistry. When we move, this causes an insistent and continuous demand on energy, blood and oxygen to circulate inside our body. Our metabolism REQUIRES movement to activate the flow electrons and the production of energy in our mitochondria (the cell's powerhouse). As the blood circulates, it also distributes the essential micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, omegas and essential fatty acids throughout our body, to every cell and to every organ. In addition, movement also activates specialized proteins called enzymes. Enzymes facilitate pretty much everything inside the cell. They catalyze (speed up) the chemical reactions of our metabolism. They help to repair damaged soft tissue and damaged DNA. So where do these important electrons come from? Every bite of food we eat goes through the complex processes of digestion, absorption, metabolism and ultimately becomes electrons which are finally transformed into ATP in the mitochondrial electron transport chain. This process takes hours. If we are moving, we are demanding ATP production from the electron flow. If we are sitting, most of these electrons will be diverted into fat storage. This alternate pathway is called de novo lipogenesis. I already know that as soon as I sit down, my whole metabolism will slow down
