Are traditional religious practices more paleo than we realize?

To start with, almost every practicing religion has regular IFing;

Jews - yom kippur and some very pious Jews can add personal fast days on mon/thurs

Christians - Lent (think autophagey), fridays of advent, and ember days; also ash wed and good friday. Eastern orthodox has even more fasting days and perios

Seventh day adventists - recommend 5-6 hours between meals (no snacking)

Mormons - fast one day/month

Muslims - Ramadan, Shawwal (6 day fast), also on 10th day of Muhurram and the 9th day of zul hijjah; They also have optional personal fasts on mon/thurs

Hindus - fast on the first day of the new and full moon of each lunar month, 10th and 11th days of each month, Sivarathri festival, as well as other days

Kosher meals separate meat and dairy (calcium and iron absorption)

Although many people don't adhere to these, maybe they were on to something?
