The 80/10/10 diet is as many of you know 80% carbs, 10% protein, 10% fat.
What is the paleo / primal breakdown.

There is a broad spectrum of nutritional profiles for macronutrients that one could arrive at if eating a general "paleo" diet.
Personally, I eat isocalorically -- 33% c/p/f -- but there's no reason 80/10/10 couldn't work for a paleo eater. Granted, it'd be a weird diet - e.g. a few sardines and about 10 potatoes - but hey, whatever works. Some paleo eaters that like low-carb might be 15/35/50 for e.g.
In general, it's better to focus on the food itself that you are eating, and less on how many carb, protein, or fat units you are eating. If you have medical advice or goals that necessitate you eating a low or high protein, fat, or carb diet -- or are just curious about the effects of targetted-macronutrient diets -- go for it. If not, simply focus on the quality of your food, and how it effects you.
A highly satiating diet will empower both those that are trying to grow, those that are trying to lose, or those that are just maintaining -- regardless of its macronutrient breakdown. You need to discover what works best for you.

Too much sugar, which can lead high toxicity of the blood, which cancer loves. Pressure on the pancreas, especially if you are not that active. Blood sugar spikes. I think that eventually, after relying on the sugar and carbs for energy and fat (excess sugar means fat, right? correct me if I am wrong), your body is going to eventually eat at your muscles to make up for what you are not feeding it.
These are my guesses. Many people feel better eating this way after a week or so (or longer) because they are exchanging grains for whole food.
Honestly, I don't like this diet. I'm okay with the regular veganism and vegetarianism... but I think this is a bit worse than SAD and all of that..
ATLEAST it is a form of clean eating.... or so it seems.
A week or two is fine... but a lifestyle of eating like this. I don't know.
