I think this is too often neglected. The most successful hunting groups ate the most fat. And spread their genes most successfully. Presumably then a high (animal) fat diet is the healthiest one for a successful human gene pool. I tend to think the oft used contemporary ethnographic atlas as pretty irrelevant to trying to determine optimally healthy macronutrient ratios.
