Diet is of course not the only factor with regard to longevity in
general, and to one's specific survival for the entire lifespan his
genes are going to allow.

But those in the west who get beyond 100 are rarely affected by
obesity, hypertension, cavities, diabete, or are used to gorge on

And in fact, from a paleo POV western élites have been eating for a
long time much better than the average post-neolithic individual, as
long as they have been ignoring the "healthy" rules and thriving on
relatively fresh filet mignon, lobster, foie gras, salmon, oysters,
caviar, lettuce, berries, etc. :-)

I think that the only real problem with a 3-star Michelin regime (with
again involves having no more than one real meal per day...) are the
desserts. You are not getting to eat much bread in an eight-course,
proteine- and fat-rich meal...
