Earth has been here for over 5 billion years we on the other hand for 3 to 400,000 which if you turn into individual lifetimes it's about 6 to 8000 generations if we lived an average age 40 to 50 years old. For the majority of this time we've lived off very little little available readily available which in turn gave our bodies time to deal with natural processes like autophagy (rid of dead cells) etc. At the same time It made the body very efficient at digesting foods so that now upto 80% of our energy can be put into digestion.
Many would say the digestion process starts up when you put something in your mouth, chew and salivate. I would argue now that starts as soon as you smell food, as the olfactory system is the most primordial sense of the human, that is before we developed eyes we still had to breathe.
There's even evidence suggesting that even bacteria dont just reek odor but smell it also.
Carbohydrates still almost monopolize what's really available for macronutrients to most consumers. But even what we have barely has any semblance to what we had in its wholeness for the majority of our evolution.
For instance, virtually every readily available carb source in nature has a indigestible/ fibrous component that acts as a way to scrub the intestines as well as carry toxins out of the body (providing your energy isn't always taken up in digestion)
If you put a piece of bread into water, it turns into a paste, which if there were adequate fibre & less processing would not remain there.
After it's been stayed in your intestines for a while, auto intoxication takes place where your body tries to re-absorb what its trying to rid then eventually the foods produce gases that are toxic to your cells.
Your body then tries to compensate by holding water outside of the cell to detoxify it, which gives subcutaneous water which makes you feel and look bloated, but also water is very heavy, so adds to your overall weight.
