such kind of questions in gmat is really confused, how to get the right answer. I am not good at theories of critical reading class.

OA is (e) ?

Cause the author says that 'Doctors also eat meat'.

So he is trying to say that if I suggest something, (in this case the doctor) I too will follow the same thing.
If the doctor eats meat, it means that he is only following what he tells and suggests other people as healthy. Which is what the author is using to corroborate his statement.
