Our metabolism IS capable of detecting which nutrients we're low on and setting up cravings for foods we've learned are rich in those substances. Fat used to be such to be such a rare and valuable nutrient that there was no reason to ever restrict our intake of it - the more we could get, the better to survive the next famine.
