Video : Controversial thoughts: Hunter-gatherers don't like fiber!
Do the Hadza really consume 100g of fiber per day? Do we really know what a healthy gut microbiome is? Doubt it! When asked to rank their preferences for food (their diets are essentially meat, honey, berries, baobab fruit, and tubers) they consistently rank honey as their favorite and tubers last! In this video, I break down a number of articles looking at how the Hadza eat, their predilection for honey and meat, their oral health, and the seasonal cycling of their microbiota. I challenge the notion that we know what a "healthy" gut microbiome really is and suggest that this is better defined by clinical outcomes rather than myopic interpretations of individual species/phyla. I also share my own gut results on a nose to tail carnivore diet with honey in it.
