The 80/10/10 vegan diet means that around 80% of your daily calories will come from carbohydrates, 10% from protein and 10% from fat.
Let’s say that despite all the healthy dieting, lifestyle changes and other things that you’ve been doing for months or even years, you still have health issues.
You might be dealing with hormonal imbalances and your weight might still not be where you want it to be.
You might still be experiencing a lot of fatigue or gut issues.
You’ve been trying one diet after another, taking many different supplements and even medications, but your health still hasn’t moved forward.
You feel sick and tired from your low carb diet, like Keto or Paleo.
You feel frustrated by not having a plan that you can sustain over the long term and that can help you create the level of health you want to experience.
Perhaps in your search for better health, you came across the 80/10/10 vegan diet. Is it going to help you with your health issues?
This is exactly what I talk about in my video today. Check it out here:
The 80/10/10 Vegan Diet
Can you actually feel energised on this plan? One of the most common health problems we hear about from people when we do our health discovery calls is that they are suffering from low energy levels.
In order to address your fatigue, you need to dig deep and uncover the root cause of it. This could be an unbalanced diet, compromised liver health, toxins, gut issues, thyroid or other hormonal imbalances,
Regardless of what it is – dialing in your diet is going to be a very important step to take.
This is why the 80/10/10 vegan diet plan can help – it excludes a lot of foods that can compromise your health and includes the foods that help you build your health.
There was a study published in The International Journal of Applied and Basic Nutritional Sciences, and they compared the amount of weight lost for people on different eating plans. (1)
Participants who took part in this 6-month study ate 5 different diets:
- Omnivore diet, which includes animal products
- Semi-vegetarian diet with occasional meat intake
- Vegetarian diet, which excludes meat, poultry and fish, but includes dairy
- Pesco-vegetarian diet, which excludes meat, but includes seafood
- Plant-based diet, which excludes all animal products
At the end of the six month study, the people who were eating the plant-based diet lost more weight than people on any of the other diets by an average of 4.3%, or 16.5 pounds in weight!
Furthermore, weight loss results on the vegan diet started appearing after just 2 months.
The plant diet group also showed the biggest amount of decrease in their fat levels at the two and six month checks, had improved macro nutrient levels compared to the other diets and also had lower BMIs.
The US Institute of Medicine has set the (RDA) recomended dietary allowance for protein intake from the food you eat every day at 0.8g per kilo of body weight. So for example if you are a women who is not overweight and weighs 100lbs, then according to the RDA your protein intake would need to be about 36g of protein every day.
Now science is finding that animal protein in particular is not beneficial to human health and can in fact causes serious health problems, which include:
- Kidney damage (2)
- Hormonal imbalances with estorgen dominance, which increases your chances of breast cancer, uterine cancer, autoimmune diseases, and infertility.
Can you bump into deficiencies on the 80/10/10 vegan diet? Yes, you can. In fact, people can experience deficiencies on any diet that they follow.
In case of the 80/10/10 diet, just because you eat very healthy foods, it doesn’t automatically mean that your diet is well balanced and provides all the nutrients that your body requires.
You’ll still need to ensure that you’re getting adequate nutrition – from protein and essential fatty acids, through to vitamins (especially B12) and minerals like iron, calcium and selenium.
All this can be achieved with the help of whole foods and supplementation, such as B12, vitamin D3 during the colder months and other supplements that you may require to help resolve your health issues.
