Maybe if we adopt a lifestyle similar to animals in the sense that only eat what you can catch (and when you are hungry.. animals only hunt when they are hungry)...

 

Also, what do animals do when they are full? They literally sit down or just walk around. ZERO STRESS

A lot of animals have stress too. Like the stress of being eaten by a predator, or freezing, or overheating, or dehydrating.

I definitely have a lot of stress.

Yea but aren't those stresses worsened by the mind (animals do not think like us humans).

 

And besides, I don't think animals are chronically stressed from being eaten be a predator, freezing, overheating or dehydrating; chronic being the key word

is that even possible?or doable?

 

i mean in the world where people can reach mars or follow stephen hawking..is sitting or walking around stress free possible on our part?

changing diet or lifestyle is another chapter..for that doesnt interfere in human progress or lets just call it 'life' !

but to just quit everything and live like an animal ...no ambition,nothing to achieve..no excitement,no path to follow..nothing at all!

Some animals eat all day. Including some of our closest relatives. Most predators sleep 20 hours or so per day.

Gorillas are herbivores and they graze all day. Chimps hunt, but they aren't that good at it, plus engage in warfare. I don't know how much they actually spend on eating.

Primates eat throughout the day. Lots of snacking = less blood sugar spiking. Of course, being humans, we likely hunted and had large meat meals a few times a week. But meat isn't going to do much to spike your blood sugar

wrong. Too much protein turns into sugar. The meat that humans were eating was most likely fatty meats, with little protein.

How are going hunt if you're hungry?

Eat some grass on the way? :D

That's what veg's did in the past, except they ate the grass on their way back from failed hunting cuz we all know what vegan/vegetarian mean...
