Low carbohydrate-high protein diet and incidence of cardiovascular diseases in Swedish women: prospective cohort study
Your question and the study title do not relate to the Paleo diet, they both hark back to the early Atkins diet which based it's philosophy on High protein intake as a satiety control, literly making people sick through eating lean meat.
Protein can be used for energy production, but the process is extremly inefficient, nearly 30% of contained calories are just burnt off in the conversion process which creates toxic byproducts to be excreted.
The modern "Paleo style" diet is a higher fat, lower carb and adequate protein intake with a focus on nutrient density, so getting an appropriate level of the three Macro's for energy(Fats & Carbs) and body maintenance(protein) but looking to achieve a slight excess of micronutrients(Vitamins, Minerals, Co Factors etc.)
