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.


I would like to see you try. There is no way you could directly rip off a hide and devour flesh from a cadaver with your teeth without some form of added intervention. It is absurd to think that the human teeth are made to do that. They are however perfect for eating and masticating fruit.

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.


The type and not the calories? LOL!
Try telling that to an anorexic person....
Answer me this - how many calories do you consume a day? how many calories do you burn a day? And how do you know?

Keto/Paleo? Atkins is the new paleo is the new keto is the new... whatever someone comes up with in 2019 to make small fortune for a few years before changing the brand again.

Anytime an individual changes their nutritional habits the weight just falls off (mostly water weight at first). They feel better simply because of the change... it's your body learning how to process things all over again, light re-lighting a fire after it's burned out. Problem is most of these diets are not sustainable for life.

Supervised ketosis is good for extreme cases but not so good for the general population. Feel good now, wait on a liver transplant list later. Also, while you're losing muscle keep in mind that your heart is also a muscle.

We don't need to rip, or tear...

Since the earliest days of humanities existence, when we stepped away from our tree dwelling ancestors, we've been tool users, no matter how crude, they were far superior to our teeth for cutting away hide and what have you.

We are, however much some seem to want it, a predatory species, omnivorous by necessity, since a human can not live well on a strictly carnivorous diet.

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.




I'm in the same boat, 6'5" 280, waist 41, 59 years old, and I still bench 275 with everything else aligned correctly in weight lifting, but I'm morbidly obese. Funny part is back when I was in the best shape of my life when I was in my 20s my waist was 36/37... go figure

How is that irrelevant? 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.

If it's about animals feeling pain, then why can't Vegans eat things like Crab, Lobster or other animals that have no capacity to feel pain and are literally just biological machines with zero self awareness? They lack even the part of the brain to allow for them to suffer. For that matter fish are just swimming biological machines also. They do not suffer, nor are they aware of their mortality.

I would disagree with everyone saying that animals and plants don't have some sort of awareness. Does a pig feel more pain than a crab? Very likely because it has a more developed nervous system. But I doubt a crab doesn't feel pain because it also has a nervous system. Plants probably feel a sense of loss, and they have biological responses to this, but not "pain" as animals and insects probably feel it.

Another thing is what's to stop a higher alien sentience feeding off of us if they use the excuse that they are much more advanced and aware? I think the human digestive system is most like monkey and gorilla digestive system and that's adapted to eating fruits and nuts, with vegetation material as a secondary option but not as good.

Ummm...

My question explained the irrelevancy. Whether or not plants experience life the same as animals is irrelevant.

I ask again... are they alive, or not?

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around.
Retardation leads to vegan food


Vegan foods could be wrapped up in bacon....I’m determined to try the “beyond meat” plant based burger when the price comes down a bit, but with bacon 🥓

My first experience with it was interesting. We honestly thought we were delivered actual burgers instead of the Beyond Burgers. That said, after cooking them at home I think they're disgusting. They smell exactly how they taste, raw or cooked. Something about that throws the entire experience off for me. Texture wise, they got it pretty good and someone who enjoys a medium rare burger can eat one and probably not bitch much. The Beyond Sausages though, man, the hot Italian ones are KILLER, especially on the grill. I didn't stop eating animals because I didn't like the taste, so it's definitely nice to have some quality products available for the rare occasion I don't eat a whole food.
