Climbing diet

All right ladies - I have a question!

I keep running across references to how horrible diet of real serious climbers is.

I was reading "High Exposure" last night and read the paragraph of him having a diet of "cottage cheese, honey, peanut butter from the jar and rice with beans for dinner".

At the same time, he is climbing 5-7 hours a day.

I really don't understand how someone can do that! I am not obsessed with healthy diet or anything like that, and I understand that rice+beans would probably give you enough protein... but what about vitamins? How quickly are you going to come down with scurvy? :)

Any ideas?

If this weren't the ladie's room, I'd totally suggest the steady diet of cheap beer, dry ramen noodles, twigs, and bong rips.
But this is the ladies room, and such things are taboo.
