Thirdly: most dogs and cats DON'T actually survive on a diet of pure protein. Your average dog and cat food is at least 50% vegetable matter... which is why kept, domesticated cats live much longer than ferals.
Incidentally, the length of a dogs intestines - proportionate to their 'mouth-to-anus' ratio, as you put it - is 5% that of a human's.
But on dentition alone, your points are disproven: both dogs and cats have solely flesh-tearing teeth (canines, not to be too obvious) while humans have vegetable-crushing teeth (molars). Also, dogs and cats cannot manipulate their jaws from side to side, like humans and other herbivores (cows, for instance).
In short, the differences between humans and any carnivore you might like to mention are far outweighed by the differences, rendering the comparison obsolete.
Please, legumes including soy, are unfit for human consumption just like grains. So that's reason 1 not to eat it ever! Even a "top up" is too much for a muscle building male.
I never said athletes need more than 1 gram, I said they eat 1.5-2 grams. Better safe than sorry.
be omnivorous, but it is perfectly healthy for a human to eat 90%+ meat. I've done it for extended periods and it's ****ing awesome.
Say what you will about Jamie Lewis, but he does his homework so if you don't believe me/him check the links at the bottoms of the articles:
I'm done arguing about this. If Octo wants to let his wife tell him what to eat and try to build muscle, no one can really help him that much.
