While I understand the ethical argument of many vegans not wanting to eat animals as it means killing them, nature and history tell us a different story.
Mankind was created, survived, and thrived because of meat. Our Primal Ancestors had to hunt and gather, they had no choice. It was their natural instinct. They would hunt for days and then drag their prey back to the cave.
They did not sit around munching on plants to keep them alive. To survive the natural selection pressure, they had to be strong, fit, and healthy, which is what they got from eating meat.
And no, it’s not true that they lived only short lives. Many did die young as there we no doctors, and hospitals, and their living environment was harsh. They could fall off a cliff hunting, break a leg, or get eaten by a predator.
Eat or be eaten?
There’s plenty of evidence the lucky ones lived a long life, and nobody was obese!
Carnivore changed my life
Being a Carnivore for 7 years straight I’ve experienced the amazing changes to my body and mind firsthand. I’ve converted many folks to keto-carnivore, helping them lose excess weight, and to become strong and healthy again. Everyone I’ve worked with succeeded and loved their new lifestyle.
I used to be 60 lbs. overweight, stressed, depressed, and on 10 medications, while visiting the doctor’s office weekly, and the pharmacy almost daily.
Both my body and mental health were a mess.
After studying the effects all types of food have on your body, and mind, I was amazed. I immediately began my new journey, and everything started to change.
I lost the excess weight, came off all the prescription meds I was addicted to and regained my natural strength, and confidence.
My life had been in a downward spiral, which was mostly down to the horrible food I was eating, which, like everyone else, I thought wasn’t a problem.
It’s called the Standard American Diet (SAD).
By changing my food to keto-carnivore, I got my life and health back, and it’s been that way for the last 7 years.
I can safely say this lifestyle saved me.
The vegan side of things
I’ve met plenty of vegans on my travels and discussed their views with them. I’d listen patiently, but at the end of the day, the same problem was often apparent.
None of them looked that healthy. Some were very overweight, because of excessive carb and sugar consumption, others were skinny and hollow-faced.
Both types didn’t seem right. Neither were easy-going, or relaxed. In fact, it was obvious they were all uptight and highly stressed folks.
That could be explained because they were constantly hungry, missing vital nutrients, and consuming too much toxic sugar, and carbs.
And, of course, a lot of phytic acids. Lectins, oxalates, gluten, and isoflavones.
These are the antinutrients or proteins that our digestive system isn’t able to fully digest, or that bind with “good” nutrients and disallow absorption.
Animals have horns, teeth, thick skin, and are very fast, so they can protect themselves. Don’t underestimate plants, they have their own protective systems as well.
Except they’re a lot more “cunning” and use hidden weapons that work only inside our bodies.
From this point of view, it is a lot safer to be a carnivore rather than a hard-core vegan.
To each their own, of course. Everyone is and always should be free to decide what they put in their bodies, for whatever reason they may have.
Is it unethical to consume meat? I don’t see that to be the case. Humans have eaten meat since the beginning of humanity.
Could animal farming and the meat processing industry be run in a much more humane, healthy, and sustainable way? The answer is clearly yes. That’s in the hands of our governments. It would be simple to introduce laws forcing all farming meat processing facilities to be 100% organic.
