Harold Kalve has published a little health book with a great message defying socially-accepted approaches that address obesity and other health-related concerns. While nutritionists, dietary experts and fitness gurus with media’s help keep churning out numerous, often contradicting, programs, Kalve’s work, titled Basic Food, puts forward an evolutionary—and perhaps revolutionary—theory that may change the way people think about food and nutrition.

“Obesity is not a problem of excess or weak wills. It is not due to the lack of hard work or exercise, nor is it due to a rich lifestyle or a rich society,” states Kalve. “It is a problem of deprivation and not getting the food that is natural for us to eat. In our society, that food is hidden among all the boxes, packages, and cans of food we should not eat. Early hominids had little choice but to eat what was natural for them. It was the only food available. Modern humans must determine what is natural for them and learn to choose wisely.”

Weight reduction approaches abound greatly in recent years. Dr. Robert Atkins’, Drs. Michael and Mary Dan Eades’, and Dr. Arthur Agatston’s approaches are more favored by distinguished organizations. However, none of these approaches nor their less-prominent counterparts come anywhere close to solving the world crisis in obesity and emerging epidemic of diabetes, heart diseases, strokes, loss of mobility, and good health.

In his book, Kalve reveals the missing truth. Taking cue from the belief that it is the nature of all life to regulate its growth and size in several ways to give it the best chance for survival, he corrects the most basic misconception of “natural food.” He offers a wider, more significant definition as “food common to people during their evolution as measured in thousands of generations.”

By going back to basics and correcting wrong sets of ideas in Basic Food, he opens up for readers a whole new possibility of finding better ways to address health-related issues such as obesity. He hopes to see a resurgence of more natural programs that will be more beneficial than currently established and promoted approaches.
