A question about diet

My cousin is a fitness freak. Bikes 20 Kms avg a day (to and from work). More than happy to hike a mountain and practically jog up and down. My question is this.

The guys got his metabolism set to maximum. Breakfast is an espresso and some digestive cookies. Packs some bananas and fruit plus chocolate and bikes to work. I rarely see him eat meat.

We hiked a mountain one day and aside from one banana his diet was chocolate cookies and lemon water.

At dinner it's fruit again. I've never seen him eat a meal. Once a bowl of soup. This was over a week long visit.

Is this healthy? He burns every calorie he eats. But there's just so much refined sugar in it. I'm afraid his pancreas might exolode.

Should I be concerned?

Very unhealthy. However many people get away with eating like crap,smoking and drinking like fish then live to be 80. He would probably feel much better eating better. But in the end it's all up to genetics.

I agree. He has got to be around 10% or less for body fat. Looks healthy. I'm going to start bugging him before he needs insulin injections.

He's less than 10%, more like 6-7 I'm guessing. I'm less than 10 but eat ~200 G protein plus carbs and fat. The real question is how old is he...and how soon before he gets too old to be burning sugar for energy at that rate by not being able to do that crazy shit, then he'll be fu**ed.
