A dude wrote this in response to me talking about this diet.
Since I'm very new to 80-10-10 I'm curious about what more knowledgeable people than me will say in response?
"Do you know any athletes outside of the endurance world who can follow
an 80-10-10 diet? I can promise you it will not work for the majority of
athletes who participate in intense strength-based training since the
body cannot function with only 10% protein. As mentioned previously
there are things called essential amino acids and essential fatty acids.
Depending on someone's caloric intake, 10% of fat and protein may not
be enough to get those essential nutrients.
And I fear
that eating 80% carbohydrates, especially in the form of fruits, would
slowly cause health problems. Forcing so much sugar into your body leads
to an insulin spike produced by your body. If your body has to produce
insulin that frequently, eventually it will result in insulin
resistance, which is believed to be one of the causes of metabolic
syndrome and type 2 diabetes."
