Why do researchers think that reconstructing a dietary profile from our evolutionary past (estimates from the Paleolithic) will help us to understand our current health situation?

Take some time to refresh your writing skills. You will find it essential to successfully complete the written component of the assignment. Go to the Writing Workshop area and work through the material. Outline each of your answers before you begin to write. Each of your answers should begin with a strong introductory paragraph.

Write-up Question 1 (at least 500 words). You should have already completed and submitted your Comparative Nutrient Value table. Why do researchers think that reconstructing a dietary profile from our evolutionary past (estimates from the Paleolithic) will help us to understand our current health situation? How does your intake compare to the values estimated from the Paleolithic? How are the macro and micronutrients in your diet related to health? Specifically, include the significance of the polyunsaturated to saturated fat ratio and the ratio of sodium to potassium. What are your values? How does your intake compare with the latest recommendations from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)?

Write-up Question 2 (at least 500 words). Describe the differences and similarities between your diet and food acquisition pattern and those of the !Kung (Ju/hoansi) as presented by Richard Lee. For example, what proportion of your diet is meat? How would you measure and describe your diet breadth. Is there a seasonal pattern to your diet? How many people do you share resources with? What shapes the pattern of resource sharing in our society? Please incorporate material from all the readings and lectures thus far.
Note: Before you tell me that you have it easy because you go to the store, remember you need to earn money (or someone does) to pay for all the food you acquire through shopping. If you aID the time you spend working to your time devoted to food acquisition, then how does that affect your total time to food acquisition. What about time devoted to work to buy gas to provide transportation to the grocery store? Please think through all the elements of your pattern of food acquisition.

Write-up Question 3 (at least 500 words). You should already have completed and submitted the MET to kcal conversion table. Describe the differences and similarities between your time allocation and energetic expenditure and the pattern described by Darla Dufour for Tukanoan women who are swiIDen horticulturalists. For example, you should consider that across different subsistence regimes (i.e. ways that people acquire food) and economies people have different time allocation profiles (i.e. spend their time in different ways) and their mode of acquisition requires different amounts of energy.
