Unique fitness blog

Arthur De Vany is a recently retired economist/mathematician (UC Irvine) who is working on a book that will apply evolutionary science to fitness and nutrition.* He is an accomplished athlete and looks amazing for his 67 or so years.* He is now publishing a Blog at that is, in my estimation, incredibly interesting.* He is opinionated and not at all modest but he is brilliant and is applying his intelligence and apparently huge energy stores to the aforementioned project which is chronicled in his blog.* A couple of days ago, he posted a PDF file of his seminal essay on evolutionary fitness. (the premise is that we are only 10k years into the agricultural epoch, a couple of centuries into the heavy industrial age and a couple of decades into the electronic age.* We did not evelove in tune with these conditions but rather as hunter/gatherers.* The evolutionary record indicates greater bone density, height and robustness of paleo ancestors compared to average post agriculture measurements.)* If you are interested in this, I would suggest first reading his esssay so you have a context for his blog entries.* He is a hell of a specimen for a retired dude.*

But Walford was a toothpick of a guy who practiced severe calorie restriction; nothing like De Vaney's approach.* *Reportedly, Art eats like a horse but in an intermittent manner.* For me, the appeal is the application of evolutionary theory to a usually mundane area. His discussion of inuslin resistance and type 2 diabetes is really on point for our era of cheap, refined carbs.* This ain't no South Peach Diet approach.*
