Incisors.
Molars.

Yes, humans are designed to eat meat....and plants. We are and have been omnivores for a few million years now.

Well that makes sense being a vegetarian would depress me. In fact nothing like a two inch thick stake.

And very unhealthy

There’s myriad real SCEINTIFIC studies that prove vegetarians are overall more healthy than meat eaters

My mum was type 2 too (plus a host of other things). She got told the same, watch how much fruit and veg she ate.

Her treat was dehydrated banana slices.

Our gut is not short like a meat eating predator-and we don't have multi stomachs like cud chewers.

Plus we have eaten meat-proven with archeology-for millennia.

I was depressed eating meat not just the taste but how it made me feel for starters. It was an allergen to my body. Never liked it as a kid or even adult before know the issue medically.


Every individual is individual, and that's a good example of that fact, obviously. Just as there are people with medically proven gluten intolerances or disorders who can't eat gluten, I'm sure there are some who can't tolerate the proteins in meat. Their feelings and intolerances, however, don't mean everyone else shouldn't enjoy their steaks nor does it mean meat is unhealthy for all.

It's because the spirit needs to feed on the energy of lesser beings, but plants are too low down the spirit chain to provide any sort of spiritual nutrition

That's not what you said. You said humans were not designed to eat meat.

That's completely not true.

I can tell you right now that as a T2D if I ate nothing but plants, I'd go into kidney failure due to my blood sugar being much too high.

Same goes with a person with lyme disease, meat is the enemy for them.

You can sit there and crow all you want about being a plant eater....:shrug:....I couldn't care less about it. Eat whatever you want....because:

Humans are omnivores.

Most people can reverse their type 2 diabetes with ketogenic diet i.e. high fat, medium protein, minimal carbs

Explain our teeth and all the evidence about our evolution as hunter gatherers. You would have to throw that out the window to arrive at that conclusion. Not to mention our species would have not been nearly as successful. Even Bonobos eat meat and hunt.

Source

When Jane Goodall first observed wild chimpanzees hunting and eating meat nearly 40 years ago, skeptics suggested that their behavior was aberrant and that the amount of meat eaten was trivial. Today, we know that chimpanzees everywhere eat mainly fruit, but are also predators in their forest ecosystems. In some sites the quantity of meat eaten by a chimpanzee community may approach one ton annually. Recently revealed aspects of predation by chimpanzees, such as its frequency and the use of meat as a political and reproductive tool, have important implications for research on the origins of human behavior. These findings come at a time when many anthropologists argue for scavenging rather than hunting as a way of life for early human ancestors. Research into the hunting ecology of wild chimpanzees may therefore shed new light on the current debate about the origins of human behavior.

One of the most important and intriguing questions in human evolution is when meat became an important part of the diet of our ancestors. Physical anthropologists and archaeologists have been using a number of techniques to try to answer this question. The presence of primitive stone tools in the fossil record tells us that 2.5 million years ago early hominids were using stone implements to cut the flesh off the bones of large animals that they had either hunted or whose carcasses they had scavenged.

I believe humans weren't designed to eat meat.

That doesn't mean eating meat is all bad or evil

Just not eating meat alone will not guarantee good health.

You just moved the goal posts again.

Since when does not being vegetarian equate to eating just meat? I don't think anyone here is arguing for no fruits and veggies at all.

Funny you should say that as my exs dad was type 2 and tried the Atkins diet (back in 2003-2004 when everyone was doing it). A year later he was no longer dependent on injections or tablets.

Now, it could have been a misdiagnosis or coincidence, but I wouldn't be surprised if it actually worked.

All that’s conjecture not scientific truth

It’s a matter of belief.

The vast majority of scientific studies say vegetarians are generally more healthy than meat eaters, that’s a fact...

My statement about humans not being designed to eat meat is a personal opinion, I'm not a fanatic on that.

I think that’s true.

Meat made and cooked well is certainly that

Though the question here I think revolves around health

The truth should be told that vegetarianism is generally, by all the legit studies healthier than meat eaters.

That doesn’t mean vegetarians are immortal, super healthy or anything extremely much better of than meat eaters.

Indeed, one can eat meat and still be very healthy.

I personally think that the tools and tool marks on the bones and the bones with teeth marks found in their dwellings are pretty strong evidence.

That and the fact that to survive, true Vegans must take man-made supplements or fudge and eat at least insects.

I don't care what others eat and it seems neither do you, so we'll just agree to disagree.

Again: humans have incisors.

Herbivores do not have them, as if all you eat is plants, you don't need incisors.

Smell: for most humans, cooked meat smells good. Good smelling food is part of how our bodies evolved to tell us what we can eat and what we can't eat. There's a very good reason that we turn our noses away from rotting food.

Humans today carry the traits that we evolved with when it comes to food. We are indeed designed to eat both meat and plants, in moderation of course. Too much of anything is never good for you.

Take carrots. Make your diet of one that consists of nothing but carrots and you're going to be in trouble with Vitamin A toxicity.

No, it's scientific fact now....no need to be surprised.

The very fact our body, when on a low carb diet, converts fats into ketone bodies for use as energy is very much the smoking gun to end this debate.

If you eat one thing only of anything I imagine that would be problematic
