The normal starvation period that we evolved on, which leaned us out for half of every year, doesn’t occur anymore. To get far ahead of myself, these lucky folks will likely turn out to be very leptin sensitive, a topic that will make sense in a few chapters. She should appreciate that. So how do we fix it?
