I would have felt better if he mentioned a significant protein source

Good to see.

Do they think potatoes and kale are not vegetables for some reason?

I agree. Fats as well. His diet has the macronutrient breakdown of an endurance athlete. Hopefully there is more to it. I hate seeing athletes who require explosive strength get all carbed out on a vegan diet and next thing you know, paleo. I'll try to get in touch with him about it.

At least in the US in casual every day language when people say "vegetables" they think of things commonly found appetizer salads, they do not think of potatoes and many people still don't about kale.

Awesome. I'm missing the context, but I don't think that is supposed to be a detailed menu or a macro, just a curiosity for TV.

As a pro, he probably has really competent advisors on the matter.

There is both protein and fat in all the things that he eats.

Not much though. Without looking it up, it appears to be 80+% carbs. Good luck gaining/maintaining muscle on < 30 grams/day of protein.

The breakdown:
If he eats a 2000 calorie diet and 10% comes from protein that would be 200 calories from protein which would be 50 grams of protein. 30 grams would be 120 calories which, in that case would mean that he eats a 1200 calorie diet. After a few months on this he doesn't look anorexic so I would presume he doesn't eat 1200 calories per day. I would bet he eats more than 5000 kcal per day which would mean at least 500 kcal from protein which would be 125g of protein per day.

The breaking down of muscle won't happen if you're using your muscles (which I presume he is) and have plenty of glycogen to use (which he won't on the 1200kcal diet but well on the 5000kcal diet).

I doubt that's all he eats, perhaps he has such a varied diet they didn't have room to fit it on the screen? ;)

Seems like a good guy based on his twitter

I sent him a message on facebook. I'll let you know his response.

There isn't even 10% protein in that diet listed. Not even close.
