Yes and due to to amount of cardio hes doing he requires alot more calories to maintain therefore to be able to cut at a good pace he has to eat that amount of calories.
if your trying to get shredded theres no way u can eat close to what you are.. despite popular belief cardio isnt what makes u shredded the only thing that does that is eating under ur calories lolz

Regardless of what my goals were physically, there is no way that I would be able to function without replacing my energy stores without 6 large meals per day. + supplements... On some days I burn 6000+ calories.
I am ripped as anything and have really good cardio and endurance, but this is at a deficit of bulk and strength. Short of roids the only thing that would make my bulking quicker would be cutting my cardio habits.
I have had my diet personally tailored for me by a dietician to ensure that I have sufficient protein, carbs and good sugars for each part of the day so that I can continue to function effectively.
If anyone is about to start a workout routine with a diet I suggest getting a good vitamin and mineral daily tablet. I take Swisse Men's Ultivite and swear by it. It just keeps you from getting lows in minerals which might lack from exercise/ diet change.

Not a part of Paleo :)
I usually have carbs in my cheat meals anyway.
The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era-a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet. Centered on commonly available modern foods, the "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.

Well I guess crossfit is a bit different.
I'm going to give it a go anyway.
Crossfit produces people like this, so it can't be that terrible :)
