  1. So to revive an old thread. Any changes views on the 80/10/10 diet? Agreeing with many others, I've yet to see anybody on this diet who has reasonable muscle mass, and many vegans IMO look very aged, sagging skin, I'm very well willing to bet this is from inadequate protein intake.. The body cannot make proteins: collagen, muscle fibers, or many essential constituents without adequate amino-acid intake, which comes from protein food sources. 9 aminoacids are deemed "essential" because the human body cannot synthesize them from other compounds at the level needed for normal growth, so they must be obtained from food. The body also has a very sensitive glucose/insulin system. Consuming fruit in the quantities required for this diet or as shown to have been consumed by people on this diet, are in quantities that will cause a massive insulin response.... and such insulin responses can and will down-regulate insulin receptors, causing "insulin resistance". This is a fact, and is commonly referred to as "type 2 diabetes". So I am not at all seeing how consuming this much sugars can be healthy for the body. FYI 1 medium banana has approximately: 27g carbs; 14g simple sugars. Fat is also necessary for the body, which can be obtained from nuts (which by the way are a RAW FOOD SOURCE). But with only a 10% intake, fat intake is quite low. FAT is very necessary and required for the healthy production of lipid-sex-hormones, cell membranes, fat metabolism (yes!), and for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.
