One - no one, neither Atkins, Paleo, Dukan, nor any one else recommends a high protein diet. That's a carefully propagated myth, but false on the face of it.
Two - The article confuses high protein with high meat. As do many people.
"High-protein diets have been hotly debated for years. Health experts stress that these diets are deceivingly high in saturated fats and low in fiber, which could mean high cholesterol and an increased risk of heart disease or stroke"
A diet that is "high" in protein cannot also be "high" in another macronutrient. The simple law of proportion says that as the percentage of one rises the percentage of another must fall. Clearly the authors of this article, and probably the authors of the survey (not study), do not understand the basics of a low carb diet.
Lastly - surveys based upon self-reporting can determine a hypothesis at best.
The paleo philosophy simply says that you will do best on the diet that you are biologically adapted to, and worse on one that is imposed upon you by industrial farming methods. But industrial farming concerns don't want you to hear that.
