I was vegetarian for almost 6 months but always felt awful. Heartburn, throat mucus, nasal congestion, and acne. It was a moderate protein, moderate fat, and high carb diet.

I decided that enough is enough and realized that i felt unwell because of my diet. So I looked more into 80 10 10 raw vegan diet and am convinced that this is the diet for me. So far I have just eaten organic bananas, berries, and green smoothies for 3 days. My protein and fat intake is quite low now and these are the things that I have noticed on this diet.

Less heartburn and it is decreasing dramatically each day. Less throat mucus and less congestion. Less body odor. Acne has not cleared yet but I hear that people on this diet get clear skin eventually.
My feces smells less too. It used to stink up the whole bathroom.

I have not noticed loss of strength in my workouts just yet. I don't even bother with calorie restriction anymore. I was on a cutting vegetarian diet before and I felt awful all the time. I will try to update my progress to see what happens to my body composition, health, and strength levels.

hey, i personally think that protein is overrated....ive never felt better following a high carb, low fat, low to medium protein diet.......

good luck with the raw diet!

actually i was shocked when i learned that a high protein diet causes excess nitrogen to form in the body. The human body can't really handle that nitrogen and becomes more toxic. I will see how this low protein diet affects my muscle mass. Most of my muscle is probably inflammation, fat marbling, and water retention from eating the wrong way for 27 years though.

i found when i switched from really high animal protein diet, to low protein plant based diet, i lost all the inflamation excess water etc.....which made me alot lighter but im still strong. it was strange at first getting lighter but staying strong.....i agree high protein diet isnt the healthiest even from plants in my opinion. i think the focus should be on low fat calories from plants rather than protein grams from plants.

your muscle probably wont be affected but you will definately feel smaller due to the loss of the fat in and around your muscles......also the inflammation like you said.

After experimenting for a little while I am too coming to this conclusion. high carb, medium protein and low fat is where its at! :)

good luck to the original poster on 801010, i toyed with it earlier this year and may go back to it. Just make sure you're getting enough "protein" foods (e.g. greens for 801010).
