Thanks for the quick response.
Most people are quite surprised that I can sharpen and yet have little if any knowledge of food and their combinations.
But I must be honest. I only reason I gave any credence to the claims was a book written by Marilu Henner. I would have quickly dismissed even that work as "just another diet book," however numerous people stated that in the correct combinations, food has a great impact on overall health.
(I'm eagerly awaiting the "bacon cheeseburger for weight lifting" treatise.)
Also, it looks like the concerns of diet and nutrition are now going to be a major, daily concern for my wife's health. She's being a brick, God love her. She even told me last night that if her thyroid is removed completely she can have all of the pecan pie she wants.
At the end of the day, I'd like to know some truth and a scientific position.
