Nothing...most of them are deceased mainly as a result of following this kind of lifestyle for years. Contrary to popular belief, long distance running coupled with high carb diets have proven to be detrimental to one's health.
My grand-pop who ran marathons for years and regularly ate high gi carbs now has an array of health problems in his old age, including Parkinson's disease. God forbid someone ever suggested long-distance running or his diet played a major factor...they would be looked at as some quack who couldn't tell the difference between his ( )( ) and a hole in the ground.
So I just keep my mouth shut and go about my business as the doctors continue to blame everything on his old age and leech off the insurance companies who keep raising the premiums to suck every last penny from my grandparents pension and savings. In the end it boils down to a screwed up system that works for the select few with little hope of changing anytime soon.
