    enough to make up for the exercise? It always felt like a treadmill. I couldn't tell whether I was exercising to burn off the excess I'd eaten the day before, or creating a deficit to be replaced by the next meal.

    Also, I was always fidgety. I'm 60 now, and this was true for almost 30 years, until 6 years ago when I stopped cycling.

        residual but still very "real" leftover from our evolution. Think about it like this:

         Your ancestors were the best of the hunters...overtime you developed the brain switch that told your grandfathers when they ran down the deer, or trapped the otter, or pulled more fish from the lake, that it was even more important to hunt the next animal now. Do it quickly while you have the energy, strength and momentum. It also has a component for protection of family. Providing food for family. But in the end.. it's all about survival of the fittest.
