Sentences with unstated, implicit subjects are fine. But the trick is
that the example you gave is grammatically correct yet isn't
respecting the tools of Klingon grammar. If you want to express
certainty, use the Type 6 verb suffix {-bej}.

wa'Hu' Ha'DIbaH vISopbejta'.

If I were to do it your way, I'd actually put the {teH} sentence last.
{vISopta'. teH!} "I did eat it. It's true!"
However, I don't think there's anything particularly hard to believe
about eating meat. :-P
