    I hope not, humans are omnivores which for you ignorant fucks means we are designed to eat a large variety of stuff. So limiting yourself to one type of food (plants) is unnatural and a nice steak taste A LOT better then a fucking salad.

    You should stop taking protein supplements and try eating real protein for change. That alone will make a huge difference. Also people will stop making fun of you.
