a recent example of heinous crap going on at 30bad…
Should younger people do 80/10/10 any different?
“Hey guys, I’m 16. Is there any differences that I would need to do in 80/10/10? Like is it possible that I’d need more fat or anything? Thanks :)”
I was wondering what you make of a high fat’s tendency to increase insulin resistance. I think it does.
For a while, on a high fat, high carb diet, I found I’d suffer from candida/thrush on the tongue. This could be cleared in two ways, either I would need to cut out all sugars and most complex carbs or I would have to cut out all fats. Either approach would clear the condition in a matter of days (a useful objective marker IMO).
The low carb approach let to great mental focus, but felt ‘heavy’ energy wise. The low fat approach led to heightened energy, but not the same sharpness of mind.
I also found that if I cut out wheat and rice, I could eat more fats. So fruit in the mornings, followed by a paleo diet for the rest of the day seemed to work ok.
So both ends of the spectrum have their advantages.
As you may be aware the likes of Dr Banard have found that reducing fat allows insulin to do its work, this has to do with the level of ‘Intramyocellular lipids’. Then there is also the brachial artery reactivity test (BART) which show that a higher fat diet impedes circulation. Certainly the low fat vegans seem to have a glow about them suggesting more oxygen in the blood.
So my question is what you all make of this? Is there a middle ground?
A key debate is whether or not a high fat or high carb diet is optimal. Personally if I go low carb, high fat I can’t tolerate fruit. On the other hand if I limit my fat intake, as in fruit 801010 style my energy soars but I find the diet unsustainable. Similarly McDougall diet kills the libido, while upping the energy.
I can completely understand how candida s caused by high fat, having proven this to myself time and time again while moving back and forth from a high fruit/carb diet to a high fat diet (here a high cereal diet works best on one level).
So question is, do you agree that low fat clears the way for more glucose to enter the cells and thus higher energy (ala the 801010 crew). Or do you think that carbs are best avoided/limited? Or is there a midway point (eg. High fruit + moderate animal protein)? Similar to Denise Minger’s approach.
I can’t hack the low carb, high fat diet. Nor the high fruit or high carb only diet. Both seem disastrous. The balance seem more like 701515.
Looking over the posts here, people seem to veer one way or the other. Is there not a middle road?
I started the diet based on 2 meals of fruits and 1 meal of green leaves with nuts or avocados.
For 2-3 weeks I felt just great, but after this I started getting symptoms: Terry’s nails (which can be caused by anemia, malnutrition or liver damage), cold extremities, faster heartbeat at rest (around 90bpm), slower digestion, stomach burning and gases, and recently what seems to be a candida overgrowth in my mouth (very white tongue with my saliva doing filaments between upper and lower teeth).
I do not know what I have been doing wrong: too low caloric intake (around 2000kcal/day), not enough proteins (my protein intake was actually closer to 6-7%), sedentary life apart from 30 minutes walk every day, not enough greens to remineralize my body, thus being unable to counter the acidification caused by ingesting a large amount of fruits (until they are properly digested and release their own minerals). It seems that fruits must have fermented along the way (maybe they were not ripe enough), causing my digestion to slow down and the candida to develop. It seemed at least that my body was inflamed due to the high and maybe too sudden fruit intake (although I would need to understand better how it happened).
Internet is a great source of confusion in this respect, based for instance upon the issue of what a healthy carb/fat partition should be: some people claim that sugar is all the cells need, others claim that a significant fraction of this sugar is actually converted into fat (so one would be better advised to get fat in the first place to avoid putting a strain on the body), some others claim that the fructose is poison leading to high-fatty liver…
The same confusion exists when it comes to how one can heal a candida overgrowth: some people advocate a low carb diet to starve the candida (yet at the expense of starving the body as well), others claimed that eating a high fruit diet actually healed their condition (in such cases, it seems that the absence of cooked food was a part of the success, as if a body “cleaned” from cooked food was able to accept large quantities of fruits more naturally).
At any rate, the low carb diet seems difficult to follow when you are vegan (unless you start eating back animal proteins) and the high carb diet seems like going back to 80 10 10 (raw or cooked) which brought pain in the first place. Besides, while I enjoy fruits, I realized over my 3 weeks experience that eating several kilograms of fruits every day was hardly manageable when you live in nordic countries. The other issue is that I only weight 63 kilos for 1.80 meters right now so I cannot afford to lose much more weight.
I am looking to stabilize with a nutritionally healthy/financially sustainable diet with a balanced mix of fruits/greens/fat/quinoa or grains, but I am not sure how to do it from a state of imbalance because being an analytical person I need to understand what happened to me in order to trust that I am doing the right thing.
I am not sure anymore how to meet my caloric needs (what amount of carbs/fat to eat? What food combinations to make?), I am concerned I damaged my health and I feel lost with what may be a local/general candidose issue, not to mention the situation with my nails (liver problem or malnutrition?).
I tend to think that if I reduce the acidose with e.g lots of green juices to alkalyze, things may go back into place (the germ is nothing, terrain is everything) but what do I know?
If you have had experience with such issues (terry’s nails, candidose) and found your way back to health, I would be happy to hear from you.
Thanks and take care,

Imagine an unwanted houseguest in your living room (yep), demanding a steady stream of sugary carbohydrates (names anyone?!). That’s Candida aka Durianrider Australfungus, and a more unpleasant houseguest I cannot imagine. (i did not say that LOLZ)
Candida is a type of fungus (australianus boredanus family) that excretes toxic waste (that sure , and a stinky one) that can get into the bloodstream (via youtube or facebook) and cause symptoms of bloating, clouded thinking, depression, diarrhea, exhaustion, halitosis (bad breath), menstrual pains, thrush (pasty saliva), unclear memory recall, yeast vaginitis, and fungal nail conditions. (to just mention a few of course!)
Conventional diets high in cooked starches (bread, baked potato, cakes, cookies, pasta) and diets loaded with refined or hybridized (seedless) fruit sugars (mmh 30bananas a day anyone?) both feed candida aka Australfungus Durianrider. When all this sugar is added into a body whose levels of good intestinal bacteria (probiotics) are low and whose tissues have become acidic due to a prolonged lack of alkaline mineral salts (which come from vegetables and superfoods) in the diet, then candida proliferates (801010 will dominate)
Those suffering from candida typically have had a history of antibiotic use (or meth). Antibiotics eliminate much of the good intestinal bacteria and allow candida (durianrider australfungus) to spread.
Systemic yeast infections (candidiasis durianroideris) find growth potential in a damp, musty condition in the body (and australian roadtrails). Candida is first a yeast (a temptation for sugars), and then a fungus when its rhizoids (long roots or mindcontroling abuse) penetrate the tissue mucosa and bridge the boundary between the internal body and the digestive tract.
Candida is usually also present when there has been mercury poisoning (booze + meth). Therefore, candida symptoms decrease with heavy metal cleansing (reverse brainwashing). The best heavy metal cleansing product out there right now is Natural Cellular Defense Liquid Zeolite (aka 30bananasadaysucks.com !!!).
Candida can thrive only in a dark (dogmatic), moldy (low-educated), oxygen-deprived (un-critical) environment. The very first recommendation I give to those with candida is to get more direct sunlight (thinking allowed!) on the skin. Most yeasts and fungi are destroyed by direct sunlight (a grain of wisdom lolz).
