They can if that food is the fatty meat of an animal that eats the grass so you don't have to.

You have to eat a "rounded" diet when the base of your diet is crappy food that was made to feed poor people.
If you think that a diet of only fatty meat is better than a diet of only plants, they you have been dangerously misinformed.

Meat is how you thrive as a hunter gatherer, we ate all the megafauna. What else are they going to eat? Especially when living through an ice age. Everything we do today is "unnatural" when there are billions of us. Of course a "natural" hunter gatherer set up for every human is not feasible. That isn't proof meat isn't good for humans. Humanity has spent most of it's existence in a state totally different from how we live in recorded history so it makes sense to look at that segment if you want to work out how evolution has shaped our metabolism.


Also Inuits do (or at least did) eat pretty much only fatty red meat as a indigenous people living in ice age conditions. All the carbs and sugar is very much a diet of civilization and look how that is working our for us. We all become fat and diabetic once we reach middle age.
It's working out better than the Inuit diet:

"However, actual evidence has shown that Inuit have a similar prevalence of coronary artery disease as non-Inuit populations and they have excessive mortality due to cerebrovascular strokes, with twice the risk to that of the North American population.[27][28] Indeed, the cardiovascular risk of this diet is so severe that the addition of a more standard American diet has reduced the incidence of mortality in the Inuit population.[29]"

If carbs made everyone fat and diabetic, where are the billions of fat and diabetic Africans (rice, fufu, millet etc) and Asians (rice); and why is obesity a recent phenomenon in the West? Why didn't the 6kg+ of potatoes that the average Irishman, and the 5kg+ of potatoes that the average woman and teenager consume per day make everyone in Ireland obese and diabetic?

A largely sedentary lifestyle combined with too many calories being consumed and not enough being burned; highly caloric alcoholic beverages and sodas; highly processed and fatty, deep fried foods; sweets and chocolates; dairy and meat breakfast, lunch and dinner are to blame for Western peoples becoming fat and diabetic.

Yes. It's why diabetes is so prevalent in Asian countries because they all live off of rice.
Diabetes prevalence (% of population ages 20 to 79) - Country Ranking

20 Mexico 13.50
43 United States 10.80
46 Germany 10.40
46 India 10.40
60 China 9.20
88 Thailand 7.00
105 Cambodia 6.40
108 Indonesia 6.30
119 Vietnam 6.00
137 Japan 5.60
140 Singapore 5.50
160 Hong Kong SAR, China 4.50
168 Macao SAR, China 4.30

So prevalent.

My god... don't you get it? Yes they ate potatoes and probably only potatoes at various times - which humans can survive on in the short-term, but eventually MUST be supplemented with other types! What part of that is not making sense to you? Clearly here they were supplementing it every now and then when they could. Humans cannot survive on just one type of food forever, it does not work in practice. It only works in the short-term.
But what's your point? It's perfectly possible to live on a wholly plant based diet today, as tens of millions do.
