Humans are encouraged to eat well balanced meals, i.e. protein, 
carbohydrates, and fat.  Aside from minerals and certain other 
micronutrients offered by plants, are they adequate sources of 
calories and/or protein?

I've heard that some body builders eat as much as 1 gm of protein 
per lb of BW.  This seems like a lot.  Why would a body builder 
require such a diet?
