Nick - I misread what you'd said, I read it that you didn't need to eat anything at all for hours - sorry!
The other part was just a comment - if someone who doesn't know your usual stance and knowledge read that in isolation - they might THINK you were suggesting it was 'true'. I mean no one can fill their posts with caveats, we'd never get any discussion done. It was just I read it and thought Grief, I hope no-one does that, just assuming if Nick has mentioned it - it must be right so I'll do it! LOL
