I would not call this way of eating a diet per say, but a lifestyle. When a person says the word diet certain things come to mind such as giving up, calorie restriction, bland food and decreased energy. The “diet” I am talking about lets you eat as many calories as your heart desires! Oh and by the way the main source of calories comes from sweets. Can you believe that? And to add even more attractiveness to this, it is also the ultimate health/energy promoting way of eating.
This my friends is called the 80/10/10 diet that was labeled so by the genius on nutrition and athletic performance, Dr. Doug Graham.
In this “diet” you eat
80% of your calories from carbs, 10% from protein, and 10% from fat. The foods eaten are raw fruits, vegetables, greens, nuts and seeds. Organic, ripe, raw, and whole.
When you consume the simple sugars from fruit (sugar is a carb by the way) your body doesn’t even digest them. They are absorbed. This is the most energy efficient way of utilizing a calorie. Literally the second the sugar in a grape touches your tongue it enters your blood stream in seconds. The other types of sugars in fruit enter the bloodstream in a type of extended release manner due to the fiber attached to it. This gives the best constant rate of energy possible with zero crash compared to the refined sugar in soda.
High protein and high fat diets are notorious for sapping you of energy due to the heavy complex process it takes to break it down. When a diet high in fruit is consumed, high energy always results.
Typical meals consist of 10 bananas, a pound or two of strawberries, or 15 oranges is pretty normal. A head of lettuce mixed with your choice of veggies and homemade dressing is also eaten just about every day. This may sound like a lot compared to the typical puny low fiber cooked food your used to. This is because of the higher fiber and water content in fruit, which takes more volume to get the amount of calories you need. A cheeseburger the size of your fist is the equivalent of 5-10 bananas in relation to caloric density.
The main benefits to this way of eating are increased mental clarity, glowing acne free skin, improved mood, less requirement for sleep. Disease and sickness are non existant or reversed and of course insane amounts of natural energy.
The effects are almost immediately felt when this “diet” is adopted and over time they get better and better. I have been eating a high fruit diet for 3 years and can honsetly say this is the best i have felt my entire life. The feeling of bliss and energy is comparable to a child swimming at the pool on a sunny day doing a cannonball off the diving board right after pushing his sister into the pool.
This way of eating may sound different and strange to you but it is actually not. Humans have been eating this way for millions of years before we even began lighting our food on fire or making donuts.
I had weight loss of about a pound of fat/water/toxins a day for the first week or so. All my muscle was preserved. In fact my strength and stamina in my weightlifting and running actually grew!
This is by far the fastest way to lose unwanted fat and better your health while eating all the sweet delicious fruit you want.
