I joined a December 80/10/10 challenge. I will try my best to stay 80/10/10 for the whole month and beyond.
For those of you who don't know, 80/10/10 is a type of raw food diet. It is low fat, raw vegan. It is where 80% or more of your calories come from carbs, 10% or less from protein and 10% or less from fat. It is OPTIMAL for all humans, especially athletes. Dr. Douglas Graham is the author of the book - you can buy it on Amazon or on his website, www.foodnsport.com
I was doing REALLY good on 80/10/10 for a WHILE... until a period of intense depsair had me eating nuts again....(the death of my friend) ...it was something I naturally did, probably because my body wanted the fat to help my emotions numb!? Anyways, then the cold came and I just kept eating a higher fat percentage. I felt sluggish, sickly, and unhappy. But most of us raw foodies know that nuts are definitely an addiction... so it was pretty hard to stop. But once I did, it felt great!
Now I am doing the challenge, and I am honestly excited!
I will try my best to post what I eat and what exercise I do for the day.
Today my eating schedule was pretty messed up (especially in the morning) because I woke up later than usual and had to rush out the door to school. I ate one orange before I had to leave, and then some bananas in the parking lot at school. Heres what my intake looks like:
Breakfast: 1 orange, 3 bananas
Lunch: 7 bananas
snack: 2 apples
pre-dinner: Sarah's "Thankfully Raw Cranberry Sauce" made out of cranberries, apples, dates, and an orange. I ate a little under a cup of it, i believe.
dinner: 1 grapefruit, 4 oranges
calories: around 1876
protein: around 23 grams
carbs: around 485 grams
lipids: 6 grams
With 80/10/10 comes exercise... it is practically required.
Today I went to the climbing gym for an hour and a half and messed around on the boulder. It was really hard to get warmed up because it was so cold. Tomorrow I plan to do a better workout.
How was your day today?
