Had myself a nifty keen birthday party for the first time in, oh, 3 years! (Key fact: my son is turning 2 in about a week.)
Baked myself this mad, multi-layer red velvet cake with sweet vanilla icing. It was bigger than my dad’s head.
And you better believe I ate a LOT of it. It was my carb nite, after all, and I’d been eating under 30g of carbs for the previous 6 days, not to mention doing a LOT of rock climbing (yay!).
I probably ate like 3000 calories just from carbs that day. But when you’re able to make stupidly-high carb meals work FOR you, there’s no reason to use words like “guilty pleasure”.
There’s nothing to make up for the next day. The carbs are part of the plan!
Wanna binge on birthday cake and lose fat anyway?
