Thats an interesting point as I came across some postings on this on another forum I am a member of. Basically someone had it serious and stopped eating nuts (they were vegan) and the condition relented. Problem was they had to resort to fake foods to get protein and eventually went back to meat.

What are fake foods?
Cycling? Of course, but it's far better on a Gillott

for example Quorn food burgers and sausages, not real food, not vegetable or meat or fruit but something processed and manufactured from numerous 'ingredients'.

It's definitely much less of an issue in vegetarians and vegans due to the higher fibre intake of such individuals.
