I don't think so at all. Too little protein, yes, but I'd add even more carbs if he's trying to gain. Carbs are phenomenal for putting on lots of lean mass post-workout. I've never had success eating fat in a caloric surplus. I just get fat and gave up a higher fat approach a long time ago due to lousy body composition and slow muscle growth. Packing in protein and carbs, though, I put on almost entirely muscle and can severely overeat after a workout until I feel like I'm going to puke with little to no fat gain. If anything, I'd double protein, cut fats to maybe 60-70 grams a day and add another 100g of carbohydrate.

I did no physical activity at all on Wednesday outside of a 2 mile walk before ice cream. I was hungry before bed, so I ate a tub of 1% cottage cheese with pumpkin puree and cinnamon.
Yesterday: Benchpress followed by 1 lb of eye round, 1 plantain, 2 white potatoes and a sweet potato.
Dead 1RM went up 5 lbs, I added an extra rep to my bench and I lost 2 lbs. I've been off the high fat bandwagon for a long time because of this. Carbs, please.
