Dr. Barry Groves passed away..:(
This was on Jimmy's site..

When Oxfordshire Cotswolds native Dr. Barry Groves and his wife Monica decided to start on a low-carb, high-fat diet beginning in 1962, all of his friends and family thought he was crazy. But when this nutritional scientist Ph.D. lost weight and greatly improved his health by eating supposedly-forbidden foods like butter, full fat meats and cheeses and lard while eschewing blood sugar-spiking carbage foods like bread, pasta and rice, Dr. Groves was the one who had the last laugh. It allowed him to live a long and healthy robust life with over a half century of enjoyable low-carb, high-fat living as one of the UKs strongest advocates for this healthy lifestyle change. Dr. Groves passed away last night, April 29, 2013 at the age of 77.

This was a post from Jimmy's place. Jason Groves was the poster..So sad for him.

Barry Groves was my Uncle and the sudden death of my father Richard Groves age 75 , 6 days earlier probably didn't help , i'm led to believe both deaths were possibly hereditary as their father died young but both brothers passed suddenly and in our case unexpectedly but peacefully enjoying life until the very end .

Both my father and my Uncle Barry were physically and mentally strong and I believe that was down to their diets of the high fats , proteins and low carbs . I believe in the philosophy as its the only way I can lose weight and feel good in myself and anybody who is sceptical and hasn't tried that way of life need to respect the tragic loss of two great gentlemen who will be sadly missed by all that had the pleasure to meet them .

Somethings in life no matter what we do are simply out of our hands .

How nice of him to post. May they both RIP. If you can live a healthy, vibrant life until the very end is what I call perfect. We all will die one day. Hopefully dying without weeks, months and years of sickness beforehand. Which sounds like how Barry and his brother left this world. More shocking for loved ones left behind, but also comforting when they realize they left peacefully and lived life to the fullest until the very end.,

That is so true, Sandy. My dad died when he was 72 of a heart attack, but he had gone to work that day and lived a full healthy life. We all know peeps that can barely get around and they are our age. C
