I think there's a lot in that theory Verdun - after all, if you look at how we developed a large proportion of our food would've been protein (meat and seafood etc) and vegetables - carbs would only have been available at particular times of the year and until we became farmers and learned how to store grain we'd have had very little of it.

I know that when I've been successful in losing weight it's been on a high protein low carb diet.  

But I had a grandmother who came from a family of village bakers and who taught me to bake  

Damage to moss

Snap Sue - definitely blackbirds after worms - it'll all settle down and grow back again.  No need to do anything if you like the moss there (and I do).  

Just an idea - you might use the opportunity of having a bit of bare soil around the base of the tree to scatter a little Fish Blood and Bone around and rake it in - it'll perk it up in the spring - it's probably been there a while without  any feed and if that's a laurel hedge behind it it will be taking a lot of the nutrients from the soil.

I think you've got the makings of a lovely garden there for wildlife - blackbirds love nesting in laurel
