    Health issues when the 20% is done all in one go?

    Primal Fuel
    My diet has been poor this last week due to various unusual circumstances and it had me thinking about the 80/20 rule. If one eats primal 100% for 51 weeks of the year but then goes the opposite for a week are there going to be greater health issues than doing a normal 80/20? Obviously eating poorly isn't great for the health but does eating poorly all in one intense go stress the body? Could you argue it would be like Grok pigging out on only fruit in high summer?

    I suspect an occasional binge is better than a chronic 20% every day.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
