Does anyone here live the 80/10/10 lifestyle? My daughter is sort of following it and I have also startet to eat a lot more raw. Eating so much sweet and ripe fruit has really curbed my cravings for chocolate.
I have although startet reading a book about it and a lot of things in it make sense to me. Hey I feed my dogs a raw natural diet and they thrive. BUT I am still sceptical. I would love to hear from people who follow it and about your experience. I have noticed that my digestive track is so much happier and I seem to have tons of energy and I sleep really well.

The human body is very adaptable but you should take some supplements to complement such a restrictive diet like of vitamin B12 and Iron and some others.

Sorry for the late answer... But: I'm living almost fully raw (i eat soups sometimes) and i'm vegan. So yeah, i'm following the 80/10/10 diet and I'm healthy. Don't take ANY SUPPLEMENTS unless your doctor told you so.

Don't think I could. It sounds interesting, and I suppose I could gradually incorporate more raw foods, but I have IBS, and raw vegetables and especially raw fruits cause me intestinal distress. Keep in mind also that some foods are better cooked (more bio-available in terms of nutrients, etc.) like broccoli and tomatoes (more concentrated licopene).

I think way to many of these diet forums focus on protein and animal products when there's actually a lot to recommend a more plant-based diet. Definitely make sure that you're getting enough of the key nutrients that most of us get from animal products (Complete proteins, etc), but if you're feeling healthy and energetic on your new WOE, by all means stick with it. And check in again and let us know how you're doing. I don't think I'd ever be willing to take the plunge completely (especially since I have concerns about soy-based substitutes that seem to be so central to a vegan diet) but I'm trying to cut back on animal products and rely more on nuts, lentils, beans, etc.

most what you can get from animal products you can also get from vegitable sources, this include protein

Yes. Check out Diet For A Small Planet (Frances Lappe). She teaches how to combine non-meat sources to make complete protein. Very healthy

While your plate should be mostly produce (not grains though, easy on the nuts & seeds), the bulk of the *calories* work best from animals, like meat and eggs and possibly dairy kefir/yogurt and cheese. And then of course, FAT. Sat fats the best, coming of course from animals. Coconut & palm oil are GREAT tho. Lose the seed oils and ALL SOY.
You can eat raw meat, think steak tartare and sushi...freeze ur meat first for 14 days tho. Raw dairy is the only dairy you want to consume anyway. Raw eggs are fantastic for you--put em in a smoothie, you will NOT know they are there. Rly. Starchy evgs can be shredded and eaten raw. I used to eat raw corn on the cob, delicious! Raw diets rly are great!
Nothing tastes as good as feeling good ... and wearing those size 6 jeans again!
