Although our paleolithic ancestors often lived in areas teeming with game and wild plant foods, it is easily agreed upon that they faced periodic shortages from time to time. Mainly due to seasonal or local variations in the climate.
This got me thinking. Does EOD fasting accurately reflect the lifestyle of paleo hunters-n-gathers? Lets think about this for a minute. If they scored a hunt (touchdown), which was probably a big game beast like a bison, mommoth, woolly rhino or giant sloth chances were they ate for days, maybe even for weeks. After their supply dwindled down, they probably went back out on to hunt roaming the savanna for at least a day or two (fasted state) searching until they had something to return to camp for the rest of the tribe.
Of course, my modern-day evolutionary thinking which could be completely wrong (good chance!)...but it would seem like a long fast (upwards of a day or two) once a week for example (rather than EOD, every other day) closer resembles the eating patterns of our healthy and fit ancestors who quite successfully lived off the land.
100,000 generations of humans have been hunters and gatherers; 500 generations have been agriculturalists; ten have lived in the industrial age; and only one has been exposed to the world of computers.
