    way of eating "cured" my 35+ years of IBS, I lost weight that was gained while on a vegetarian diet and my blood sugar is relatively steady (i.e., daily headaches became a thing of the past).

    A late-discovered Lyme/babesiosis infection has since neutralized some of the energy and related gains, but I feel far more comfortable in my new, more fragile body low-carbing than going back to mostly vegetables/fruits/some nuts.  Believe me, I've tried.

      My daughter is a vegetarian and has been since she was 14, she's now 39. She married a dedicated carnivore and compromised by eating fish now and then but she prepares meals for them and their two boys with a veggie main and meat side if needed.

      Both she and my son in law are runners, he ran marathons for years and only recently stopped those because of a stress fracture. Three of the family are long lean athletes. My youngest grandson is stocky and athletic but makes a good football defensive lineman.

      All of that leads to me thinking that there is some genetics involved in what diets work best for people. I bet second grandboy would do better on a very low carb diet, I'm not saying he's fat because he isn't but I bet his body would react better to it.

      Could be wrong...

      And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine
