    I eat 100%, unless I sometimes feel like eating something else. I don't plan cheats, or have a specific percentage, or have a specific cheat day, or meal. Sometimes I just eat cheats because I feel like it. For example, yesterday I had some thin-crust pizza. It wasn't gluten free, or paleo, or anything of the sort - just plain ol' gooey cheesy glutinous pizza. Am I worried about it? Nope, in fact I forgot all about it until this thread. Do I eat this on a regular basis? Nope, in fact the last time before yesterday I've had non-primal food was several weeks ago.

    The way I see the 80/20 rule is that you should always strive to eat "clean", but sometimes it's okay not to and it's not worth worrying about. If I die earlier because I've had a beer, or a pizza, or whatever else, once in a while, so be it - better than denying myself all the non-primal things I like my whole life just because I want to eek out a few extra years.

    I take the 20% to mean, if you slip or are out somewhere, don't worry about it or beat yourself up.

    Part of being primal is not stressing the small stuff.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    80% savoury, 20% sweet.

    I usually stick to it, but sometimes I'm more 70/30... Sometimes 50/50

    I try to be 100% all the time. As a result we don't go out to restaurants hardly at all anymore. Any slips I make are usually because of lack of knowledge or lazyness (I eat less than I should). But I don't see any point in purposely doing something that will harm my body. When I was younger I did, though. Age changes your point of view.

    Yes this is why I need to be 100% not to mention the craving for more crap.
