Here’s more evidence that eating fruit does not make you fat: Canadian pro fitness model Erin Moubray looks absolutely stunning, and she follows Dr. Doug Graham’s 80-10-10 diet, a carbohydrate rich diet that prescribes a high fruit intake, and a low intake of both fats and protein. Throw that in the face of the next neanderthal theoretician who tells you to avoid eating fruit if you want to look your best, or that low carb is the only way to go if you want to lose that last bit of body fat. More and more people are discovering the insane benefits of following a raw vegan diet, and with any luck silly myths like those will be put to rest soon. Unlike most fitness competitors and bodybuilders, she also uses no supplements.
In the video Erin Moubray discusses how the 80-10-10 has helped her, and made her feel even better than the previous high fat raw vegan diet she was on (which was, admittedly, more along the lines of the diet we discussed here in our raw vegan bodybuilding article a few weeks ago).
If you’re a fitness competitor, bodybuilder – or any kind of athlete – following a raw vegan diet, we’d love to hear from you, as we plan to discuss the virtues – and also the challenges – of this way of eating more in depth in the near future. We’re pretty excited about this stuff, to say the least. It’s had a radical impact on our views on nutrition, health and performance, and while we’re not yet 100% raw vegan ourselves we’ve had great results from eating mostly raw plant foods for long periods of time. Try it yourself – you might be very surprised by the results you’ll get.
Anyway, do watch the video, and if it inspires you to check out more 80-10-10 raw vegan videos visit Dr. Douglas Graham’s FoodnSport Youtube Channel.
