Appetites

Modern times poses some serious health conundrums for our older, biological, drives.

Fats and proteins may have been relatively scarce in pre civilization, so it made sense that we would basically have an insatiable desire to consume them, so that we would never pass up what at the time, would essentially be too good of an opportunity to pass up.

But now they are not so scarce, yet the drive remains the same.

But is this drive as endless as it seems? It may not be.

I’ve been thinking about the recent success of meatless products.

Now some people eat plant based meat products out of a moral decision, and that explains some of it.

Some do so for medical reasons, which would also play in our account.

But there is also room in this explanation for the possibility that many people who are not eating for moral or medical reasons, are doing so simply because they like to, maybe they enjoy the variety, or just do not want to eat meat literally all the time.

Maybe these seemingly insatiable desires are not so insatiable, maybe they can be overwhelmed, or it could just be that there are competing drives, like the desire for variety in the diet, that are just as strong or stronger, if not more subtle.
