Eating high fat / high calorie food is always very important, even more so for our prehistoric ancestors.

Central heating could be added to the modern need for less calories, - as any farmer providing winter-housing for livestock in cold climates can tell you.

Some would obviously have struggled to get sufficient exercise given that gyms and personal trainers hadn’t yet been invented.

It's good to have a sense of humour! We could make interesting comparisons with gyms, and the physical activities of bushmen hunters or chimps! (Which reminds me - I must get the big extension ladders out and cut back some of my larger trees sometime when there is no wind)
