Issues With The 80/10/10 Diet: Interview With Dr. Douglas Graham

Are there any issues with the 80/10/10 diet and what exactly are they? In this interview, Dr. Douglas Graham, author of the 80/10/10 diet, discusses the problems people may have when they adopt this lifestyle.

The 80/10/10 diet by Dr. Douglas Graham is a high fruit and low fat raw vegan diet. It recommends consuming at least 80% of your total daily calories from carbohydrates, a maximum 10% from protein and a maximum 10% from fat.

Dr. Douglas Graham’s the 80/10/10 diet is very different to high fat/gourmet raw food diets, which are loaded with fats from seeds, nuts, coconuts and avocadoes.

Such diets are detrimental to health and lead to issues such as candida, blood sugar problems, fatigue and weight gain.

Other diseases that may be caused by high fat/gourmet raw food diets include arthritis and even cancer.

Watch this insightful interview where Dr. Douglas Graham himself discusses the 80/10/10 diet in greater detail.

    this is true I am still learning this eating enough

  •   kokomoinmyheart  |   

    This is very interesting, because I (like I guess most people!) have always been though to eat complex carbs (like whole wheat rye, etc)!). And if i ever have cravings, it is usually for carbs. This is definitely something I need to be working on, as I want to get farther (very far) away from any processed food (even if it is vegan.)

  •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

    Sorry, cannot post full links on youtube. Please see the video description, where we have included the link.

  •   naturallifestyleshow  |   

    Good video. Even though I have read the book and seen other videos of Dr. Graham being interviewed, he said things in a different way today. Thanks for sharing. God bless.

  •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

    If you want salt then lots of greens are your friend. Celery is particulary great. For a hot/spicy flavour then try things like chives or arugula.

  •   Carla Golden  |   

    Excellent set of videos!! Thank you! When were these made and how old is Dr. Graham in these videos? I would like to share these videos with my parents and older clients….and hope that they are inspired by Dr. Graham’s lifestyle.

    •   Rawsomehealthy  |   

      Carla, thank you. Please do share with those who can benefit from these videos. They were made in Sept 2012 and he was in his early 60s.

    He seems shy and not too keen on small talk, but once he gets into his element of discussing nutrition, he’s a powerhouse of information.

  •   natureasintended  |   

    I don’t eat nuts, but I’d love to know how he remedies a sweet craving after he’s eaten too many nuts. Thanks so much for the video! 🙂 <3

    Hello all,losing weight can be easy if you have all necessary informationFollow EZdale.com to see how I? lost 27 lb in 3 weeksTherefore they-re likely to you, in importance, usually consult a healthier life.

  •   RUS38  |   

    I don’t agree with alot of things in his book. One of those stupid is where he writes that nuts is not a human food just because you can’t break the shell with you teeth. Then why the f*%# the nature gave us hands? So that we can scratch our ass? Also I don’t think this guy is eating all natural just fruits and veges he just dosn’t look that young for that type of lifestyle according to his age. Also I don’t agree with his calories consumption recommendation where he says that even though fruits are low in calories you should eat enough of them to make up for the well known caloric standard for the day. Bullshit! You don’t need to eat a bunch of fruits worth 3000 caloris in a day! I think he was paid by the health food industry to make that recommendation so that they make more sales on fruits and veges.

    This guy doesnt know what hes talking aboutIts quite sad..

  •   Mateo Nuera  |   

    Reason why it is sad is because your body doesn’t want sugar. All sugar is a resistor of electrical energy. Fruit is a plant that tricks nature into eating it. It is the reproductive system of the plant and the seeds in it need to travel but don’t have legs. The sweetness stands out among all other vegetation so it can be eaten. But in actuality it is natures opiate. A drug. The fruit uses the sugar to block the bodies nutrient absorption so the vital nutrients of the fruit remains in the stool for the seed have all it needs to sprout. This is why fruitarians eat half a fridge of food a day because the’re not absorbing nutrients.

    TO LOSE WEIGHT and PREVENT WATER RETENTION: limit your fruit consumption to 600 cals at any one time if you are a woman or 1000 cals if you are a man. You can then have another 600 cals/1000cals of fruit every 3 to 4 hours. WHY? Fructose gets converted into glycogen IF the liver needs to be replenished, if the liver’s supply of glycogen is full, it will convert the fructose to triglycerides (FAT). Fortunately, the liver’s reserves are tapped first before muscle stores. Therefore, if you do not exceed your liver’s storage capacity (200 to 500 fructose calories depending on gender, metabolic health and fitness) or (400 to 1000 calories of fruit assuming 50% is fructose) plus your body’s burn rate,( 75 to 150 cal per hour again depending on gender, metabolic health and fitness) most fructose will NOT be turned to fat, but converted to glycogen. WARNING – so if you consume massive amounts of fruit in very short time beyond your liver”s storage and burn rate, your liver will convert it to FAT. I was consuming nearly 2000 cals in fruit( 1/2 watermelon and then 1200 cal smoothie) with in 90 mins and despite exercise and keeping my total cals near 3500, my weight plateaued and had water retention. As soon as I spread my fruit calories out, my water retention disappeared and my weight loss accelerated like crazy.

    Graham is a fraud and a criminal! Please, please, please don’t listen to
    this dangerous man! You’ll find it right here on youtube!

  •   E-Z On Raw  |   

    Great video!!! Thank you for your wonderful work :))

  •   Dharia Lurie  |   

    I find that my body does better eating more veggies and avos and not that
    many fruits. Fruits are reserved for the morning and as a snack.

    What’s wrong with his finger???

  •   Tribal Barbarian  |   

    There is evidence that sucrose/sugar make a good source if energy for
    cancer cells. The bodies healthy cells can resist not having a continual
    supply of sugar and can fast or burn fat if needed – cancer cells dont
    stand up to fasting or low sugar diets as much, so sorry to pull down my
    pants and piss all over your parade, but its quite possible this diet will
    promote cancer cell growth. And who dictated “raw its the law” – dont tell
    me what law to follow, how about this “i’ll punch you in the face – its the
    law”, hang on, that doesnt really ryhm

    My 86 yo grandmother looks younger than him. Stupid aging diet.
