Just a random bounce-off-the-back-of-my-brain thought here. If ketogenic diets are showing to be helpful in things like epilepsy and cancer (and other 'modern' disorders and diseases), and the science of fasting is showing that autophagy is a healthy thing to do to one's body on occasion, and once upon a time, humans had to rely on what was available depending on season (so sometimes they feasted and sometimes they fasted), it all sort of ties in. Perhaps, aside from genetically screwing with the food supply, many of our health problems stem from an overabundance of food.
IOW, whether CW or Paleo or everything in between, maybe we'd all be healthier if one month out of the year (or some scientifically arrived upon time period), we ate nothing but a small hunk of cheese and a handful of white rice (again just a random selection of on my part) each day.
Of course, it's two in the morning, and I may wonder what the hell I was thinking come light of day. But it sort of makes sense right now.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
Overabundance 24/7/365. When hunting is whipping out the debit card at the grocery store and foraging means opening the fridge. Yep, Grok has gone soft.
