of plant origin, long term (ie,a FEW MONTHS) or you'll sicken and die. 1/2 a lb of flesh food a day is PLENTY, and it's a LOT easier, safer, when hostiles are around, to make most of that dog, cat, small game, and fish, then big animals. so you are looking at 1/4 of large animal jerky a day. about 50%of an animal is meat. So, even a SMALL deer's 30 lbs of meat takes care of a family of 4 for a MONTH or more.

Positively, absolutely, with no doubt whatsoever, 100% WRONG.

You occasionally need some plants, but rare to medium rare cooked meat that has fat in it is one of the few foods that humans can live almost entirely off of for extended periods of time.

In extremely bad weather, you can compensate for the Vitamin C and the very few other nutrients that plants are the primary source of by eating the contents of the small intestine or the stomach of herbivores where grasses have been digested enough by the animal so that humans can metabolize them. You can also boil pine needles to make a Vitamin C rich tea.

Yeah, you can starve to death only eating rabbits. That is because they are so low in fat.

When eating animals, you should consume the internal organs first before the muscle meat (which is the only meat that most people are used to eating) since they are the real treasure trove of vitamins in the animal's flesh.

Ummm, like what internal organs? The heart and the liver or are you talking about eating the stomach contents too. This is new to me so please explain.

By internal organs, I mean the organs like the liver and heart, but all of them really except a couple of parts like the lower intestines.

One spicy American Indian treat was slices of the raw liver of a fresh kill dipped in the juice of the gall bladder.

The Indians, who lived off the land, usually went for the more flavorful organ meat first. Shamanistic teachings had various reasons why it was good to eat the heart, the liver, etc, but was actually generations of experience preserved as mythological lore that dictated that those that did such remained strong and healthy.

During cold winters, the mountain men would take the small intestines of a buffalo or an elk and have an eating contest. The called the dish 'boodans' which is a corruption of a French word for sausage. In a boodans (often spelled differently) eating contest, one guy started at each end and they raced to the center, consuming the intestines in one, uninterrupted pass.

Such things are why a lot of people die of food aversion when they have to survive and are not used to such things. I remember one of the Discovery Channel shows on survival school, where they had a guy puking every time they tried to get him to eat some stuff, and then he whined when they washed him.

To paraphrase Crocodile Dundee "It tastes like sh!t, but you can live on it."
