"It’s basically whole grains, different types of beans, kale salad..." so appealing. I might make the switch! haha!

I have absolutely no problem with this article. Lance Armstrong is an incredible athlete and he's found something that works for him. The results of his n=1 study show that the Engine2 diet works for him, and there's no reason for him to change it. Perhaps he'd find the same thing if he began eating paleo, perhaps not. There isn't any ideological higher ground to one diet over another; food supports performance, it doesn't create it. Most people eat in to do things, and if they are able to do things (especially at such a high level) I see no reason to disparage them for choosing another path.

I assume you're taking issue with his diet: "It???s basically whole grains, different types of beans, kale salad..."

That's what he eats, but what doesn't he eat, processed oils, refined flours and sugars, junk food... doesn't that sound familiar? And assuming he has no autoimmunity issues, wheat and beans are probably totally fine too.
