That one I will have to disagree with. If you had the teeth of a true carnivore, you would be able to easily rip the fresh flesh off of a carcass, fur and all. I’d like to see you try that!
Our jaws and teeth are technically strong enough to sever our own fingers from our bodies, we simply don't do it out of self preservation.
In other words, we could absolutely be true carnivores and rip the raw flesh from our food. Remember the Miami Zombie Dude? He ate a guy's face off him. It's a twisted point, but makes mine none the less.

You know whats weird, my caloric intake has actually increased since I went paleo/keto. I am also down to 158 lbs from around 205 when I started 4-5 years ago. I am able to just walk for exercise to maintain my weight now.
No additional supplements or vitamins. I basically eat 4-5 strips of bacon, 4 eggs cooked in onions and red peppers for every breakfast, a large salad and then an enormous supper. I love gluttony and eat to satiation daily.
My health has also been steadily improving since I began the paleo way of life. My gums have went from 7-9 mm pockets to everything being 3mm or less now. No bleeding, no more toothaches. Dentist calls it superstar results, where he had thought surgery was going to be needed.
No more sinus issues. No more headaches. No more acid reflux/heartburn.
I think it is all about the TYPE of food you consume, nothing to do with calories.

Now that's true enough.
According to many guidelines, I'm morbidly obese. 6'4" 280 lbs. You'd have a hard time finding all that much extraneous weight.
Somehow or other, I've maintained between 270 and 280, for the last 20 years, and I'm not one to watch what I eat all that closely. Try for balance in my diet, but sometimes that's a cheeseburger in either hand.
That's the entire point. Yes, plants are alive but there's zero evidence that they experience pain or are in any way sentient....probably due to the fact that they don't have a central nervous system. But go ahead, start Googling and posting the articles I get sent by anti-vegans regularly that discuss plants sensing danger and communicating with each other. I've already read it. While I'm not about to go cutting trees down in celebration of killing plants, there's no evidence that has proven plants feel pain.
