You my friends are cave person. You are a cave man, you are a cave women. I don't care, how many cars you have or where you shop that or what kind of clothes you wear. You are like biologically hardwired pretty much the same as your caveman ancestors. And so what you got to do, is you got to think about how we got here? What did the caveman have to deal with, right? We have always heard about those stories of Feast and Famine, alright. There were times when there was very little food available and then there was the summer time like we have now when there was more food. Now we have to consider how do we make it do that famine what type of survival mechanism was within our ancestors and is still within us that keeps us surviving. And so it's summer right now and the days are long and the nights are short, okay. And throughout history there is been a lot of food available on the summer and that summer was followed by the fall and the winter where there was just a little bit of food, alright and it was really cold. Now how does our body deal with that? What's that hardwiring? What is that code within our body? How does it deal with that? Well, on the summer times since the night just so short you have reduce production of Melatonin, alright and when Melatonin is down a few things happen. First of all, your reproductivity goes up alright, Estrogen goes up, Testosterone goes up that way if you have enough fat on you and you become pregnant, then nine months later, in like April or May when there is a lot of food available, you will give birth, okay. The bodies are tripped, it’s wild, alright. Secondly you start to crave carbohydrates. Remember summer before we have refrigerators and freezers was the only time where plants produce fruits and carbohydrates. And so the body crave carbohydrates and our body also became more insulin resistant, so when we ate these carbohydrates we converted them into fat. That way when the famine came we can live of from our fat stores. And then lastly the body turn the extra sugar into cholesterol because cholesterol actually reduces the freezing temperature of our cell membranes, that way we don't freeze in the winter time, okay. So we are more productive, you have got fat stores to use as food and lastly we are protecting ourself from freezing, alright. Now, what's going on right now? Summer doesn't seem to end because there is something called the light bulb. We are all on this lunar cycle thing going on right now okay. And you really can't shake it. We have got this light cycle, this dark cycle, we are really supposed to go to bed when the sun goes down and then we wake up when the sun goes up. There were times throughout history when we would sleep like 13 hours a day. And then there was the invention of fire and that shortened up a little bit and then we have the light bulb and now were up all hours of the night, right. Now we are sleep deprived and we are sick. It's amazing when you look at the invention of the light bulb and how that correlates almost directly with the epidemic of diabetes and heart diseases and cancers. There is a food factor there of course, but we are missing the other things likes sleep and stress and what not, alright. And so since we never turn off our lights, our bodies always think that it's summer. It always thinks that the famine is coming but it never does and so we keep on storing this fat all the time and then we just become sicker, alright. Because if the Estrogen always stays up then we are going to get cancer, okay. If we are storing all this body fat we will get heart disease or get diabetes, alright. And so we need to get to bed. I have got some tips for you for this sleeping thing. Go to bed at 10 O'clock, wake up at 6 okay. You don't have to stay up late to watch you know things. Go to sleep because like I said 1 O'clock that we can shake between 10 O'clock and 2 O'clock is our physical repair. Just between those hours is when our body will repair our join
