Have any of you tried this? I met a friend at my sister in law's baby shower, and we were talking about how I've been struggling to lose this weight I STILL have after having Bella and letting myself go, and she mentioned the 80-10-10 diet. She was bigger than I am (I'm currently 180lbs.) and now she weighs like.. 125? I think? She's so different. I want to try it, but I'm trying to get feed back from people who've done it too.

If you cut ANY food group out of your diet you're going to lose weight by default. But a lack of exercise and muscle building is what is holding weight loss back, not the lack of a raw vegan diet.



On the biggest loser, do they muscle build or do they study the raw vegan diet?

I wasn't saying that's all I plan to do. It's an idea to help supplement my working out.
I'm the first to admit I got lazy because I was wrapped up in chasing the baby and doing things with her.

From my own personal research, without a LOT of specialty supplements, I don't feel like a raw vegan diet could support weight loss intended exercise and keep you properly nourished in the mean time.

Going with a vegan diet is going to naturally cut out some of the most fatty and caloric filled foods like meats, and dairy. We did a vegan challenge for a short period of time. I would definitely suggest looking into supplements to maintain proper nutrition. I don't have anything against it, just make sure you do some research so you can keep yourself healthy overall and be able to keep any weight lost off.

I've maintained a vegan diet but never a raw vegan diet for a year max. I always went back to being a vegetarian. Being a raw vegan will change your entire way of preparing meals, snacks, everything. If you intend in adapting that lifestyle do your research.

are you breastfeeding still? If so I probably wouldn't recommend it.

Vegan diets are extremely difficult. I was a vegetarian for a while and had to change my entire grocery list and ways of cooking. I looked being a veg though. It was the healthiest I had ever been. You need to really research it though and make sure you are eating the right foods.
