Listen to the Replay:
Dr. Graham teaches a raw food diet and lifestyle called the 80/10/10 diet. The goal is to get 80% of your calories from carbohydrates–primarily raw fruit–and 10% each from raw, plant-based protein, and fat. While vegetarians and vegans have been around for a while, and the raw food lifestyle is becoming more mainstream, the 80/10/10 diet is relatively new. There are those who say that it has helped them with weight loss, reversal of chronic diseases and aging, as well as provided them with better energy, sleep, mood, and athletic performance.
Join Dr. Ritamarie and Dr. Doug Graham, both seasoned health practitioners and living food advocates, as they have a lively conversation. There is a lot of debate over what is actually best for balancing blood sugar and keeping you from the damages caused by excess insulin. Dr. Graham and Dr. Ritamarie will discuss the research and clinical experience that’s led each of them to teach things in a slightly different way, yet both get great results with their patients.
Doug Graham, D.C., studied nutrition, primarily to enhance his own sports performance, from an early age.

The biggest secret of diet is not diet at all. The most important thing is you need to avoid foods that contain bad fats to avoid.There is a very good video you should take a look. I’m sure you will change your thinking about diet after watching it.Hope you will have a nice weekend and be healthy.You can watch the video in the resource box
