I tried the 80/10/10 earlier this year and could barely get out of bed, much less pick up a weight. Everyone must find what works for them, especially vegans and even more so vegan athletes. I am impressed by those who can handle the 80/10/10 because I could not.
Strange. the 80/10/10 diet is about performance. I can train 2 times a day on it and it's the only way to recover from a 2 hours judo training in a couple of hours (to train a second time). May be the fruit you ate was not sweet enough? Or you underate? It's easy to undereat on this diet because it takes a great amount of fruit to match the energy equivalence of dry food.
Yeah, I agree. The 80/10/10 diet (actually a lifestyle and not a diet) requires you to consume a MINIMUM of 5 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight. If you don't get this you can become glycogen deficient rather easy!
