What make one feel hungry? Is it low glucose alone? Are somethings
else also involved?

I think that sometimes when you think you are hungry you are really just
thirsty.

Yes I have heard this too and often just chuck some water and find the
hunger craving goes away.

Default How did nature make human body so vulnerable to carbohydrate?

This world has so much food energy sources in the form of
carbohydrate. Why did evolution make our body so vulnerable to
carbohydrate? The theory underlying those low-carb diets doesn't seem
to make much sense.

Too many carbs and not enough fat in your diet?

What do you mean by "vulnerable?" Do you mean that our bodies are
vulnerable to becoming overweight if we eat too many carbohydrates? Well,
it's pretty simple. Carbohydrates are quick energy, we evolved craving
sugar because it gave us energy. We also evolved craving fat, because it
is calorie dense, packed with more energy for the volume than other foods.
The problem comes from the fact that most of us don't _need_ as much energy
as our ancient ancestors, because of our more sedentary lifestyles, but our
tastebuds haven't caught up with the technological advances that enable us
to live our easier lives.

A better question would be "Why did man create so many carbohydrates?"

Our bodies have not changed much since the neanderthal man in regards to
dietary needs. Our bodies were not made for refined carbs.

Exerpt from
http://www.zoneperfect.com/site/cont...2_ZoneDiet.asp

This is from the Zone Diet web site. The basic reason of our problem
with carbs is the same just because this eating plan allows more carbs
in the diet.

"What about grains? Well, 8,000 years ago, there were no grains, bread
or pasta. Agriculture is a very recent (by evolutionary standards)
invention.

Evolution works very slowly. As far as our genes are concerned, we're
still a bunch of hunter/gatherers foraging for food. The problem, of
course, is that our genes may be programmed that way, but that's not the
way we actually live. We regularly eat large quantities of dense, highly
processed carbohydrates such as grains and grain based products such as
pasta. Because we haven't evolved to a stage where we can eat excessive
amounts of these high density carbohydrates without adverse biochemical
consequences, our bodies aren't able to operate properly. We gain excess
weight, suffer from diabetes, heart disease and a host of other ills,
feel sluggish, and generally perform at a sub-par level. "

Off the top of my head, I'd say think about the long time that
humans existed before they started to engage in agriculture. I'd
think that most of the calories must have come from game. Sure,
there would have been gathering too, but that might not have
accounted for that much of the diet. I should look back in some
of my arch/anth books.

And another interesting point. Virtually all the fruits and
vegetables we eat today have been carefully cross-bred by man to make
them more appealing. Chief among these goals was to make them
sweeter. A wild apple that cave man came across had far less sugar
than today's apples. A wild root vegetable had nowhere near the
starch as an Idaho potatoe. And many fruits were only available for
short periods. Today we have all these sugar enriched fruits
available all the time. Plus, how many calories did cave men burn in
their daily activity compared to what we do today?

Also, I wonder whether, as with corn, a lot of the fruits may be
larger than they were in days of yore.

Speaking of coss-breeding fruits to make them sweeter, just think
of those Delicious apples and their relatives. (I say ugh.)
