As far as I understood instincto diet advices you to eat as much as you want as long as you listen to your instincts well and eat only raw food. It presumes, that instincts will tell you what to eat and they will stop you before you overeat.
Now, I have doubts about two points:
1. Instincts are going to tell you want is best for you at the moment
2. Instincts will stop you before you overeat
Let me explain. No one knows for sure what prehistoric life was, we presume that people used to eat raw food, including animals. This might seem dubious to some people, but I agree with that. What is beyond doubt to me is that there were longer periods of food scarcity with relatively short periods of food abundance.
As a result, instincts would provide survival benefit if they ordered prehistoric man to _overeat_ when there is food abundance (especially such a precious commodity as meat), so that body accumulated reserves for longer periods of famine.
I have read free instincto book, plus GCB replies here, a lot of it makes sense to me but I couldn't find the answer to the points above.
What do you think?
