Imagine wolfing down 10 bananas, six mangoes, two pineapples, or half a watermelon, all in a single sitting? That's considered a daily meal for followers of the 80:10:10 diet.
This vegan eating plan promotes followers to ingest 80 percent of the calories from carbs sourced from fruit and veggies; 10 percent from healthy fats; and the rest come from protein.
According to USDA recommendations, you should fill half of your plate with fruit and veggies, which amounts to WAY less than 80 percent of your daily calories (and less than half, too, since produce isn’t as calorie-dense as other food groups).
One advocate of the diet claims she picked it up after a bout of skin infections, hair loss, acne, low energy, irregular periods, weight gain, and other health issues led her to take a second look at what she ate. Despite being pregnant, she says she intends to stick with it until she gives birth..

If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
