 Expert Reveals Secrets Behind 80:10:10 Diet

Michele Wolff, a leading health practitioner has revealed the secrets behind 80:10:10 diet for people who would like to try it.

Wolff explained that the Dr Douglas Graham-developed diet is a low-fat vegan diet, where a person eats 80 percent raw fruits and vegetables, 10 percent protein and 10 percent fat, News.com.au reported.

While creating the diet, Graham believed that 80:10:10 is the ideal ratio of nutrients to support health.

To follow the diet, one must eat 80 per cent raw food like fruits, greens, nuts, seeds and avocadoes as it can be eaten and broken down easily, while providing important digestive enzymes and nutrients.

However, the biggest downside of the diet is that not every one can eat and digest raw food, and one has to be well organised, prepared and motivated to get through with the diet.
