Re: Body pain...
I was simply making a statement of fact. A statement based upon knowing around thirty total vegetarians (no meat, fish, fowl, dairy products, or eggs).
They're nice enough people and I respect their diet choice(s).
Most are rather flabby. At least ten of them are morbidly obese. But, I know many people that eat a typical Western diet that are every bit as fat.
Rarely, I run simply to see if I still can. Five miles is no problem. And, I'm sixty-six and a heavy smoker.
None of my full vegetarian acquaintances are able to run more than two miles. Only two of them are smokers.
That's about all that there is to say.
