  1. Thanks for your video…very helpful…I have kind of the same story…did my blood test and found out that my thyroid is under active …. I don't want to take any pills to get it fixed, but what to do instead? I am following 80/10/10 , excluded nuts and seeds, have a good excercise routine and a balanced caloric intake. Is there something I can do to support my thyroid? Thanks for any advice!

  2. Check your iodine levels and take extra iodine if you are deficient in it and also do energy work – meditating and working with your emotions as the thyroid is linked with your self-expression center. Hope this helps!

  3. 20 bananas and 1000g of fruits/greens doesn't even come close to 3500 kcal. How do you know that you eat over 3500 if you don't count them? In my case I was weighting every bit of fruit and veg I was eating and what felt to me like 3000+ kcal was in reality less then 2000. Raw fruits and veggies are far less calorie dense than cooked/processed food and have much fiber which fills you up. Raw food diet doesn't magically burn fat like people like to believe. You simply naturally eat less.

  4. but dr, graham promotes vigorous exercise and fully explains the importance of working out so this makes sense for people gaining weight might be taking in more calories than they put out because they are not exercising enough

  5. 2500 calories a day?! I wish that I could eat that much. I find it difficult to get a sufficient number of calories on the raw diet. If anyone has any tips on how to gain weight while raw, I would love to hear them. I lost weight and really want to put it back on.

  6. im chowing down a 2100 kcal banana water smoothie, itll take me an hour to eat; just 30 min/hour ago i did a vigorous exercise

    if one was coming straight out of a SAD diet with a stress-lack of sleep regime, chances are that a 2000 kcal meal, or even a 1000 wouldnt appeal. thats normal; the reasons are: stomach muscles are still relatively dormant and you literally regurgitate unwanted volume out; the blood sugar cant handle so much that you crash/get so tired you wont wanna do it again…

  7. solutions: get into bananas/dates/cooked starch (NO FAT) (ok, its not raw, but i highly encourage it to ALL begginers coming from a cooked background.. only for dinner)

    for the stomach, make a conscious decision from now until whenever (there WILL come a time when it all settles) to eat 1000 kcal meal of banana smoothie,or date water, or cooked starch 3 times a day 3 weeks min.

    get an exercise program, itll get your blood sugar levelled

    remeber: all the above is almost temporary, so fire away

  8. It varies largely, depending on what I did the day before. Sometimes I need to refuel on my day off and I will eat what I feel like. Otherwise, I would say around 2,000 when I am not very active.

  9. Just about every other video i've seen says eat as many  as fruits and veggies as you can . This video throws me  off ,because they say limit calories. I heard limit the nuts ,because of the fats and nothing else.I watch Frelee the banana girl and they say eat all the bananas you want. I have heard about nuts ,buy thats it

  10. could you get to the point from the beginning rather than talking about what is not the first issue you state.   to much fruit you get fat: that is the main point.  Durianrider says it is not so on fruit, so who do you beleive.

  11. i live in canada, in the north part of the country. and it is very hard to get fresh fruits, and very very expensive because it cant be bought in bulk. its its about 4 months of summer here and 8 months of very cold winter. i want to follow this diet so bad and i do so as much as i can but its starting to break my bank :(. so should i not follow this diet? how can i get as close to this diet as possible without have to eat 10 oranges or apples or bananas a day?

  12. 2500 calories is too much for woman if u wanna loose weight should eat only 1500 calories plus daily at least 20 min exercise I also recommend drink unsweetened green tea don't eat any sweets too fatty food fizzy drinks and be patient loosing weight is hard

  13. Apologies for the long rant…

    firstly, This is good info.  I recently started reading 80/10/10, not sure why because for the most part it's all vegan bro-science about how we should eat like gorillas because they are our closest ancestors…anyway, in the book, under the chapter titled something like "stabilizing body weight" he says "if you burn 115 calories more than you burn you will fairly reliably lose one pound per month."  And also that one other way to lose weight is to expend more energy from physical activity.  Lastly he also makes the bold statement that " medical 'experts' distinguish the athlete from the healthy individual, giving them separate classifications, as if it were possible to be healthy and not athletic."  note his recommendation for a healthy body fat level for men "is in the single digits."  

    As with any diet, it's calories in vs. calories out…no big mystery.  That's the one thing no one in this community is willing to admit (except in this video), and even when they say things like "intermittent fasting makes you spiral out of control, lose weight, gain weight, etc." if you pay attention to their videos you can note that they do things like bike or run for an hour before eating ANYTHING and eating from 10am till about 6pm (same formula as the Hodgetwins).  In order to look like a fitness model you still have to train and diet like a fitness model. 

    anyway, 80/10/10 is a macros formula, not necessarily a "diet" or a lifestyle."  just as if you did the bodybuilder ratio of 40/40/20, etc.  You get fat or thin based on how much you eat vs. how much you burn, and the notion that "you can eat all that you want on this lifestyle," still has the clause, "but you HAVE to move your ass."  

  14. So basically, unlike someone like the Freelee chick would tell us, the commonly accepted calorie guidelines are pretty accurate(1900-2200 for women). So you can't really eat all the fruit you want… 😀 Figures.

  15. great information

    i gained some weight recently eating unlimited fruit carbs, i was eating to many calories, and, my exercise could go to the next level. im balancing out quickly, haha, it sucks feeling full, and, looking full


  16. I love this diet. And yes it's calories in vs out… However, all calories are NOT created equally. A lot of people on this diet overheat on the nuts/fats and then wonder why they aren't losing

  17. Hey! I am in my 3 week 🙂 Thank you so much 🙂 But Could you please wright down what you need us to check at the doktor? Vitamin D, B12 and? thyroids? 
    In from Norway, so I diddent know what it was 🙂 
    Love frome Norway 🙂

  18. Would you recommend going on thyroid medicine even on a Vegan diet? My thyroid is quite slow and the doctor is recommending I take medicine. I really wish my thyroid would eventually get healthy on its own if I continue to eat so healthy. Is that realistic?

  19. Thanks, I really appreciate all these international roll models. My doctor has been doing those tests and many more. The medical supplements are helping a lot for my bodies personal needs. It would be impossible for me to guess a lot of things without help from others. I did start a variation of your squat challenge, but at 53 started at 30 squats on days when time permits 2 weeks ago. I'm up to 34 and do those with 34 planks and sets of bun lifts and jumping jacks. Then, I walk jog. So far, I walk half and jog half at 14 and when I get to a number, I'll try to start filling out with full circle jogs and when I'm stronger repeat with running until I can go miles a day. I'll have to see between chores and exercise what I can do to increase to more vigorous exercise when I'm more healed. Then, I hope to attend the local Vegan Thanksgiving for vegan socialization.
