    Humans and their genetic predecessors evolved on a diet with LITTLE TO NO CARBS consisting of 70% veggies and 30% high fat meats.

    Problem with todays industrial meat is they lack the high fats, which is by design - The lack of higher fats makes people eat more and thats what they want.

    Getting constipated and uncomfortable you say? FALSE because the animal fat is what will help you digesting the meat ahd fat has the same nutrition as carbs but is far easier to digest in fact we should not be eating carbs at all because your body needs to turn those carbs into fat first then it can turn it into energy meanwhile fat is already fat so its quicker by the way too much fibers causes diaria as for vitamin C theres more then enough of that in the brain and the eyes
    Well atleast you mentioned the Inuits

    Life eats life and all forms of life seek nutrient dens food. Meat is eaten by all forms of life except vegans . (eating disorder for imaginary reasons ) We are fruits of nature and not peoples opinions. All animals get better in freedom in nature on natural food so as humans.
    Smell it, taste it, try a bit and if it feels good, that's the food to eat. People have understanding about what they shouldn't give to the animals, but they give that stuff to their kids and eat by them self. Of cause for imaginary reasons.
    Meat is collection of nutrients from plants or from digested meat. Plants have storage of nutrients in their fruits or roots and animals in the liver, bone marrow, fat and meat.
    Basically if you eat animal with out fur, then you need other kind of fiber to clean your guts and plants have protective chemicals that are poison, but in small dos activates life hood in cells (mitochondria) It is like you will die in Ice cold water, but cold showers will keep you healthy.
    That what basically wedgies do.

    If we started out only eating plants. How did we survive through the winter? Most plants dont grow year round and 98% of plants we cannot eat. Most of the ones we can eat have been adapted to our bodies. Even cavemen show drawings of hunting but not planting gardens. If you went out in the woods and tried to survive off plants for food you would be screwed lol.

    fun fact: when on a carnivore diet or any diet at all with no fibre you dont get constipated plus since you don’t eat wheat vitamin c is better synthesized in the better take the inuit for example they eat meat primarily and dont eat fruit or vegetables you would expect them to have short life spans and have scurvy and many diseases but contrary they are quite healthy

    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12535749 - The claim that Inuits are free of CAD is based off of extremely weak scientific evidence. It's based off of death reports of rural
    Inuit hospitals and admission figures (by Hans Olaf Bang and Jorn Dyerberg), these researchers didn't actually study a single Inuit person. Westernization (SAD diet) of the Inuit
    populations decreased their CAD mortality. Current clinical evidence such as X-rays, ultrasounds and autopsies disprove that "Inuits are free of CAD" claim.

    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25064579 - Researchers that have studied the Inuit prior to Bang and Dyerberg were ignored, even though all of them have proved that the Inuit
    have frequent occurrence of CAD events. Despite that, government organizations even to this day are recommending people, specifically people with heart disease to eat several servings of fish per week, and it's all based on these 2 researchers that didn't even study the Inuit people. 20% of those death certificate reports were completed without a doctor having examined the body. The doctors also had limited diagnostic facilities and most of the population were very far away from hospitals. This study reviewed all the previous studies done on the Inuits and once again found that westernized countries are healthier. Similar CAD rates compared to western countries, double the mortality rate in strokes compared to western countries and their life expectancy's 10 years shorter compared to western countries.

    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1561651/ - A study done way before the Bang and Dyerberg "research", over 30 years prior, found the Inuits to be in extremely poor health.
    The majority were pale around the ports with reasons to suspect anemia. While Inuits in the northern parts were plethoric, meaning their skin was swelling with blood. These Inuits in the north had epistaxis, which is bleeding from the nose which is subsequently found to be due to polycythemia, suggestive of cyanosis which is caused by low oxygen levels in the red blood cells or problems getting oxygenated blood to your body. Hypertension and several other issues, specifically to do with blood were found in the northern parts. Tuberculosis was also common (disease caused by bacteria that attack the lungs, causing coughs, sneezings and so on) in the northern parts. Several cases of bronchitis and other illnesses too. Atherosclerosis and high blood pressure were common. Artery calcification was common. Seen through x-ray scans. Several cases of epilepsy, insanity, rheumatoid arthritis, hydrocephalus (fluid within a childs brain, causing pressure in the skull), exophthalmos (terrible eye disease, check some pictures). Worms were commonly found in the animals they eat, putting them at higher risk of infection. Many eye and teeth issues and poor resistance to infection were found among the more primitive Eskimos. Inuits are not healthy and disease free as claimed.

    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC325106/ - Autopsy performed on found frozen mummified Inuits. Atherosclerosis was found and several other issues (such as osteoporosis).
    Even Inuits from way before had atherosclerosis and other dietary related issues present. Osteoporosis is a major health problem of Inuits. Traditional high-protein diets result in metabolic acidosis which results in calcium loss from the bones as that's how your body deals with an acidic state.

Where do you pull veggies, nuts, seeds or fruits from? We can eat only meat for months and years... We are one of the only species that fasts and there are so many health benefits to fast, just look up the nobel prize on autophagy its quite recent, ketones ARE NOT bad for health, its actually more energy dense for the mitochondria. Look up also Dom D'agostino a renown scientist, quite young, extremely smart & knolodgeable.

    Our ancestors were carnivores and were healthy but we evolved to become better so we adapted the omnivore diet, then the idiots come in and think "if these vegetables are pretty good for us on this diet maybe we can just eat them". This plan might have worked for a little but didn't last, at first people used it as a few weeks cleanse, then in the early 60's it became a diet even though it really isn't, more and more people have started to learn the truth but it's not enough, don't give me the argument " BuT yOu cOoK tHe MeAt sO oBvIoUsLy ItS nOt MaDe fOr uS" The only meat we really have to cook is chicken and maybe pork.
