umm, sarcasm much? At least I think so. But still, not a good thing.OTOH, my mom, who eats approx. 2T of food/day, also has gout. So is it gluttony, predisposition, something else?Gluttony USED to mean, excess attention paid to matters of the flesh, especially but not exclusively relating to eating. So you too, Bob, could be accused of the Sin of Gluttony ;-)I'll take venial sins for 50, please.
Bad Yogi, much like Type II Diabetes, there are a lot of different ways to acquire gout. It's a buildup of uric acid in the bloodstream, crystallizing in the joints and causing problems. Your mom may have just had a genetic predisposition, or doesn't retain enough water to dilute the acid. This guy gluts himself on meat. Same disorder, different causes.Not something I'd be bragging about, though. Oy.
The "disease of kings" is megalomania. Sounds like this guy has that, too.
I've had a couple of episodes of gout, it is not something one wants to repeat
Meat/high protein diets aren't all that bad - if you've got a heavy workout schedule to go with it. I take it this guy doesn't.
Liz That eyeball thing is demented. Love it. Rock on!
