I am willing to address the concept of species - specific diets here.

If you take a heard of elephants or a troop of gorillas or monkeys they basically all have the same genetic strengths and they all do exactly the same things and activities every day of their lives. If you are weak and unable to fend for yourself in the animal kingdom in the wild and are unable to keep moving on your feet all day every day with the herd or unable to climb trees to feed yourself you will either die of starvation or get taken by a predator. With the animals in the wild it's the survival of the fittest ( and the luckiest ) so the genetic pool is always strong, always fit, always healthy and always active every day of their lives.

If you look at the South Pacific people, their genetic pool is strong because they lived an isolated natural life until the white man came. They had to live by rowing, canoeing and doing manual physical labor. They are all big and strong.

If you are a human being and are not strong enough to row a canoe for many miles a day or chop down trees or work by the sweat of your brow you can still survive quite well as a shop keeper, merchant, etc. by bartering your goods for other peoples food. Even with weak genes and a weak constitution humans have survived many many generations - unlike animals who perish in the wild. We have vast amounts of people with weak genetics and weak bodies who do all sorts of sedentary jobs and their needs, requirements and physical capabilities are not the same as those with strong bodies, and these weak genetics have been passed down over hundreds of years now.

While some people can go into a gym and lift weights and train and after a time will be able to bench press 200 pounds, many humans don't have the physical bodies to do it. Their arms will break before they are ever able to lift 200 pounds. The same goes for many peoples internal organs. They are born with different capacities but can live long healthy lives - and often do.

That is why trying to ascribe a diet of a very healthy, very strong, very fit person to a weaker one doesn't work many times and their diets need to be adjusted accordingly.
