2 Later in this course we will try to understand why the US population has become obese. One of the questions is whether it is due to fat intake? This lecture will show that this is a complex issue. This lecture shows that early humans ate plenty of fat, but intake varied with time of year and the composition of the fat was different than what we eat today. Also, the consumption of refined sugars was almost nonexistent in early human populations, but is very high today and continue to increase.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
