Why didnt humans evolve to find protein tasty? Isn't protein the most important macronutrient? So how come fat and sugar taste great to us, but pure protein tastes like ass?

    glucose is the body's preferred energy source (and for every living thing on the planet) that's about it really. proteins are still important, though.

    Whey protein isn't pure. Pure gelatin is closer to pure protein.

    >fat
    Pure fat is revolting.

    >sugar
    Try eating +50 grams and you'll find it revolting too.

      not, it's quite nice actually , depends a lot on the type of fat and its temperature. it's pretty much neutral taste wise.

        No, salt/seasoning is what gives meat its flavor.

              (you) haven't presented one either
              it is factually incorrect that fat lends taste to something, fat is the vehicle of taste
              its actually haem that gives red meat its distinctive taste but as many flavours it piggybacks on fat.

                Yes, but it's rarely used like that in a modern context and still has a different meaning from, "I don't want to lose you." If you say, "I don't want to loose you," it means you're in a position where you need to let someone physically free but don't want to, which is different from a desire for someone not to slip away from you figuratively.

                So you agree that fat isn't what gives meat its flavor. Glad we could reach a consensus.

                Yes we agree fat is not what lends flavour to meat. I am of the opinion fat provides intensity to many flavours.
                >"... salt/seasoning is what gives meat its flavor."
                This is where we do not agree.

    Sugar is fine until you eat about bazillion of it at once. Its a matter of portions and how you're able to blend ingredients to make it tasteful. You can add whey protein to just about anything and turn it into a protein based meal.

    What protein are you eating? Fresh chicken, turkey, and even beef is pretty damn delicious with good protein macros.

      Raw animal meat isn't the tastiest thing around. I much rather go for fruit.

    Because evolution doesn't optimize. Organisms that survive long enough to have offspring pass on their traits. Those that don't, don't. That's all evolution is.

    Protein is not the most important macronutrient. The macronutrient that is arguably 'most useful' for the human organism is carbohydrates. Humans depend on EAAs in very limited amounts.

      Carbs were not even available to prehistoric humans. Where would we get them? Uncultivated roots and berries that has 10% of modern oranges and bananas? The reason why we're so sensitive to sugar is precisely because our diets had very little of it. Early humans were carnivores and their diets were mostly protein-rich meat. You can easily gobble 100g worth of protein in steak, now try eating 100g of sugar is one sitting. We didnt need to be sensitive to protein because it was already our staple.

        Early human diets were high in volume compared to the recommended serving sizes nowadays. The low caloric density and the low concentration of nutrients naturally found in wild fruits and foraged roots allowed them to simply eat more and reach their needed sugar/carbs intake without having any repercussions on their overall health. You can try by yourself to forage for your own greens, roots, and any kind of edible flora in your region for a sufficiently long time and you may even start seeing your weight to drop even when you are physically full. Cross-bred and genetically modified crops have been selectively grown in order to maximize their palatability (up to the industrial era) then their caloric density.

        One of the oldest sources of human hunter gatherer societies for concentrated simple sugars is honey. The last few remaining traditional hunter gatherers eben to this day consume honey regularly. In addition to that you named it: Most primates tend to take advantage of fruit when available, some year round.
        I wonder where you got this idea from that carbohydrates weren't available to early man.
        >100g vs 100g
        Brainlet take. Do you even understand that the primary purpose of nutrition is to cover the bodies demand for energy ? As such one might believe you should base such comparisons on equal energy. In which case sugar will provide what, 4 times the energy of steak maybe ? As such you would want to compare 25 or 30 g sugar to 100 g steak. (On a sidenote the idea of 'steak' being representative of a primitive carnivore diet is poor reasoning at best.)
        Add to that the unexplicably common idea of 'primitive nutrition' / 'nutrition prevalent during arbitarily selected periods of human evolution' being best for you is intuitive at best, as long as you do not provide an actual argument beyond intuition.
        >we're so sensitive to sugar
        Fun thing: Humans are actually known to be extremely flexible regarding nutritional requirements and indifferent when it comes to malnutrition. Hardly any other mammal exhibits the same resiliance, much more so primates in particular are known for drastically reduced lifespans when on any common human diet. They are sensitive. Meanwhile humans adapted to be perfect omnivores through a very recent and varied evolutionary history.

    I absolutely do get protein hunger, you just don't need more protein. Eat sugar, make sure that it's just sugar, no fat or anything much else with it. Something like very sweet tea.

    "Protein" is a rather broad term, and you just can't make a sweeping statement like that. Lactose in pure form tastes like ass, apparently. Cellulose doesn't taste like anything, yet both are carbohydrates. Pure fat doesn't really taste like anything either, the "buttery" taste comes from acetoin and diacetyl, which are not fats.
    And partially hydrolysed protein has a rather rich and strong flavor. Individual amino acids span the entire range of basic tastes (from sweet to disgustingly bitter to umami).
