[Original Review]
This is a very interesting book, and I am extremely glad it has been written. The strange sounding title refers to the name of an eating plan that derives 80% of total calories from carbs as found in fruit, and 10% each from fat and protein, and does so within a raw vegan framework. Graham's opinion is that this is the optimum and natural diet for human beings and therein lies the premise of this book, and he spends the next 300+ pages convincing the reader why this is so.

To accomplish this, Graham uses mostly common sense arguments and scientific analyses. The former are more effective here, and he peppers the text liberally with them. The combination is a very convincing mix, and I felt ready to dive into a pit of bananas before I had read too far. By the time Graham describes how eating a high-fat diet stresses the adrenals I was both fascinated and reflecting in horror on my past dietary sins.

There are 348 pages here; 170 of them are essay in chapters, and the balance goes to sample menus, nutrient breakdowns, portion equivalents, testimonials, faqs, and so on. These miscellaneous parts do not come across as filler, even the perhaps overly lengthy testimonial section. Graham's writing style is clear and though he engages in repetition at times (for instance when talking about fat and blood sugar) the flow is mainly undisturbed. The end feeling I had was that it was very intelligently laid out and well done. I also appreciate that he doesn't try to sell you anything. (see Dr. Robert Young's books for an example of that!)

I really don't have much to criticize here, I did wonder what stripe of doctor "Dr.

I have to say I am a fan of 80 10 10 at least as a general outline to eating. Not a necessarily fan of Graham, but don't know him personally so I really can't judge. Those that know him seem to like him though. Probably a better man than me. I just want you to know My recommendation is not because I am a fanboy of his.

I no longer eat meat myself but don't judge those that do. (On a side note, I feel better about not being an contributor to the cruelty of factory farming...check out Earthlings.com)And I believe that no healthful benefits come from eating a piece of dead tissue...especially cooked and dead. I continually research for more information on this subject an tweak and change along the path but not really veering too far away from a low fat, plant based diet. One that I personally feel we were designed to eat.

I see a lot of complaints about this diet slamming adrenals, mal-absorption, not thriving, eating 6000 calories a day, etc.

My take:...a lot of these problems people are having stem from previous diets, and genetics(from their previous diets), pharmaceuticals, as well as the state our food supply is in today (Pesticides, food picked and stored to ripen, dead soils, etc).
These, as well as others, lead to health problems that almost always get back to toxicity, weakened endocrine glands, acids, etc.

Most people today are running around with weak adrenals propped up by stimulants from coffee, energy drinks, animal steroids(meat), drugs(pharmaceutical steroids), etc. You eat meat for your whole life, your adrenals quit making epinephrine and nor epinephrine (because you're eating it) so it makes sense that when you take it out of your diet your adrenals get slammed.

Format: Paperback
I have certifiably read nearly every "raw food" book in existence. I've tried every version of the raw food diet and experiemented greatly. There is no way for me to put into words how enthusiastic I am to have found this book and to tell the world "This is the only one you need." I think to myself, wish I'd just found this one in the beginning! But it's alright, I've found it now and I tell others often.

One of the main reasons this particular book is so compelling is because it's realistic, scientific, theoretic, humble, human and practical all at the same time. You'll get everything from dietary guidelines and menus, to hard science and facts, to personal testimonies and FAQ's, to great useful data about specific foods. And most of all - you will finally understand why we MUST eat all raw foods, which foods are optimal, and how our bodies work. Dr. Graham has an amazing skill of taking a concept (lifestyle) that seems rather "strict" and making it into something that's actually ... the easiest thing you can possibly do. It's a mind shift, a society change, a choice.

Make the choice and read this book immediately, if not sooner!

I have owned the book since it first came out, having ordered it pre-publication, and have a nice hand-written comment by Dr. Graham in the
front of the book.

The 80/10/10 Diet is based upon living in harmony with Nature's design. As other reviewers have pointed out, Dr. Graham does an excellent job of explaining why that is so. Working (writing?) in combination with Laurie Masters' wonderful editing skills, the book is a true winner!

What may not be obvious from the title or from the other reviews is that this is a diet that works! Works for what? Works to allows the body to rebuild itself, cell by cell. Eating fruits and shoots (or whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic or better...), in combination with the other 31 Fundamental Elements of Health, as outlined on p. 10, is a proven method of building Health.

And I loved the outright, upfront honesty of the statement describing this diet: "This radically different view is unpopular, because it does not generate any revenue. The 80/10/10 approach uses no repeat products, no supplements, no high-priced, elitist 'superfoods'. 80/10/10 uses a simple grocery-store approach to nutrition that brings this program easily into the grasp of everyone." (p.11) Works for me! and it has!

I see this book as an excellent investment in my health, and a grand addition to my health library.
