Welcome to The 80/10/10 Success Guide. Whether you’re a
veteran raw-food enthusiast or a newcomer exploring this path for the first
time, you’ve come to the right place!
Originally developed for athletes
and others interested in high-performance living, The 80/10/10 Success Guide provides an outstanding gateway into the raw-food world.
6 information-packed laminated pages,
beautifully presented in full color
It gives you a picture that’s missing from raw-food books
and classes. Most people, regardless of their approach to eating, really don’t
know much about the nutrient content of individual foods or categories of foods.
We just haven’t been taught this information.
Surprisingly, very few raw-food
teachers have ever learned about the nutrient mix in foods, either. If they
did, they might very well rethink their recommendations.
With this guide, you can discover for yourself the key theme
high-performance raw-food enthusiasts have come to realize: that most raw fooders consume more fat than those who eat the standard American diet —often much more! You will find that the vast majority of published raw recipes
are a testament to this unfortunate (and health-compromising) fact.
How is this possible? Because
oils, nuts, seeds, and to a lesser extent, coconut, avocados, and olives are
fatty, calorie-dense foods … much more so than meat and dairy, on average.

The 80/10/10 Success Guide is chock-full of
information that will help you choose the right foods for you—and avoid the
most common raw-food pitfalls.
what others have to say
This guide is the perfect companion to The 80/10/10 Diet,
Dr. Doug Graham’s breakthrough book about creating outrageous health and
vitality on a raw vegan diet. And for those unfamiliar with Dr. Graham’s book,
this guide serves as an invaluable resource, as well.
The cover, above, distills the
entire 80/10/10 diet program on a single page, a road map for the most
important 80/10/10 guidelines, explained in an easy-to-reference format. Keep this guide close at
hand as a daily reminder of where you’re headed … and how to get there!
The charts on pages 2 through 6 provide a wealth of both
summary and detailed information about 170+ foods, chosen especially for relevance to raw fooders, enabling you
to compare macronutrient data for the whole foods YOU eat:
Sweet Fruits: common
fruits, high-calorie fruits
More Fruits: tropical fruits, fruit juices,
nonsweet (vegetable) fruits
Vegetables: greens, crucifers, sprouts, and more
Fats: fatty fruits, nuts, seeds, butters, oils†
For Comparison Only†: grains, starches, animal products
† NOT recommended; provided
for informational purposes only.
One of the greatest challenges most of us face, when we
consider adopting a raw-food program, involves shifting our awareness about the
nutrient content of entire food
The idea that ALL whole fruits and vegetables contain at
least some protein and fat, or that ALL nuts and seeds approximate 10/10/80
instead of 80/10/10 (80% of calories from carbohydrates, 10% of calories from
protein and fat) seems almost inconceivable to most people.
and seeds are high-fat—NOT high-protein—foods comes as a
great surprise to many people. None of the sixteen nuts and seeds listed in
this guide provides more than 16% of calories from protein. In reality, most of
the calories are from fat!
Similarly, that people on almost any diet consume fewer
than 20% of calories from protein seems difficult to comprehend at first, given
all that we have been taught to believe.
This publication will help you—and your friends and
family—“get” these distinctions, and many more. It offers more and
better-organized nutrient information than any other readily available
Use this information to help you get past the “numbers
block.” For example, you may read that 100 grams of avocado contains 167 calories and 15 grams of fat. But how much
food is 100 grams of avocado? Or, what’s that in ounces? And what percentage of the avocado’s calories are from fat?
You will find that one question
leads you to another … and another. Your level of understanding and nutritional
self-reliance will soar as you connect the dots about what’s in the foods you

80/10/10 Success Guide provides all the macronutrient

You’ll love having these charts on hand when sharing
with friends and family about what you eat—and why. They are a great teaching tool and provide an easy way to communicate both
specific information and general guidance to the people in your life.
Having something in print ... organized perfectly to convey
the low-fat raw message ... adds immense credibility almost immediately.
If you’ve tried searching for data in the USDA nutrient
database, you know how cumbersome it is (to put it mildly). Even using online
tools like Nutridiary or FitDay, you will wade through irrelevant products to
find the food you seek, and you can look up only one food at
a time … information about food
categories is just not conveniently available from any other source.
If you follow 80/10/10: For
those following Dr. Graham’s 80/10/10 program, these charts are the perfect
companion to The 80/10/10 Diet (as

“In the process of helping Dr.
Graham research, develop, write, and edit his groundbreaking book about eating
raw food the low-fat way, I searched in vain for the information in these
charts. Online diet-analysis tools showed me
data piecemeal—for a food, a meal, or a day at a time. But I found myself insatiably curious
to gain a broad overview of the macronutrient content of
common raw foods. Since nothing I found satisfied me, I created these charts
myself. I hope you find the information in these pages as useful as I have.”
