    The 80/10/10 Diet by T. Colin Campbell (The China Study)

    Shop Now
    I didn't see this being discussed already-Campbell has a new book out called Whole, where he advocates an 80-10-10 macros diet, (80% being carbs). I just put a library hold on it I read The China Study and it was interesting, to say the least lol.

    Has anyone read Whole yet? If so-thoughts?

    Well, have you read what Denise Minger had to say about the China Study?

    I'm sure she'll be on it. He's a pet project of hers.

    His life's work has been misinterpreting data to "prove" that animal protein is harmful to humans.

    Sounds a lot like the Joel Fuhrman thing.

    Anyone who axes refined oil, sugar, and wheat is going to improve. That's practically Primal Blueprint in a nutshell. But I really have to wonder how many people can tolerate such additional severe lifelong restrictions. Whenever a person claims to be smarter than the practitioners of virtually all global/historical cuisine, I get suspicious.

    Any diet based on macro ratios is retarded, imo. Particularly one named after them.

    It's too low in protein (followers all have wrinkles and wonky skin), includes PUFAs in the form of nuts which is bad but may be the case for high carbs from fruit. Followers all really lean.

    Sorry, I need fat or my brain just doesn't work right.

    Not willing to give that up for some guy that we already know can't work a study properly.

    I have done 80/10/10 for a prolonged duration before I felt fatigued and needed more protein. I still keep fat at 10% most of the time, but now I'm about 50/40/10 c/p/f, with days where I do 55/40/5 or 45/50/5.

    80% carbs definitely works well for me, for a while, and while it did I felt better than ever. As long as my fat intake includes ketones through manipulation of amino acids and intake of short chain fatty acids, I don't need much fat for cognition, if anything, too much gives me massive brain fog.
