I'm not sure what your point is here but I was watching Ray Mears Bushcraft series and he was visiting africa. I was amazed at the carbs that they were able to find all around. Roots, berries and various other sources. It seemed that they could eat it each day. The men did the hunting and the women did the gathering. It's really was amazing. I had to download both seasons.
