Sigh. Let me set you straight. 80-10-10 is a macronutrient ratio, just like 40-30-30 that's promoted by the Zone diet. Just because one vegan, Doug Graham, calls his particular raw diet "80-10-10" doesn't mean the definition of 80-10-10 has changed to exclusively mean a raw vegan diet, just like eating a 40-30-30 ratio doesn't necessarily mean you're following the Zone diet as you can eat that ratio as a vegan.

Doug Graham even says it himself about the term:

"'80-10-10' is a caloro-nutrient ratio. It's about consuming more than 80% of your calories from carbs and less than 10% of your calories from protein and fat. '80-10-10' may not be strictly, closed-in and defined in such a way that only the 'elite' can follow it."

And the Kenyan runners are not eating a lot of animal protein or their protein ratio would be a lot higher than 10.1%. The bulk of their diet is corn, rice, and plain ol refined White Sugar . Any of that stuff Paleo?!

So I'm not lying. You're just making yourself look like a fool with your ignorance and what seems like a deep hatred of some sorts towards vegans.
