I didn't say protein and carbohydrate have the same nutritional value (just as beef and chicken don't have the same nutritional value, and pears and celery don't have the same nutritional value).

I said they have the same number of calories per gram - without any fat. If you had a pound of fat-free vegetables (even vegetables contain fat, naturally, so you can't assume not adding fat would make them fat free) and a pound of fat-free protein (also, very difficult to find, although egg whites do come to mind...), they would have the same number of calories.
