It was an ugly day. A spectacle of culinary debauchery if there ever was one.
After 10 days of nothing but protein and fat and none of the carbs that give me that warm feeling and that rush of human energy and motivation I decided it wouldn't be so bad to head down to the capital city and enjoy lunch with my wife and daughter at one of the best Indian buffets you'll ever taste. It was time to indulge after going 10 days on such a diet and losing 10 lbs. It went well. Sure I got that bloated feeling from eating too much curry and masala dishes. The sag paneer was as good as ever so I sorta focused on it, it being low carb, of course. Not bad, just a little rice, no nana and I survived and figured it wouldn't take too much to get back on path.
Then it happened; our best friends suggested we join them for a "seafood buffet" that evening. OK, I can eat a bunch of low carb seafood. Not a problem. The problem was, there was little low carb seafood and lots of high carb "seafood" dishes. Then of course, the dessert portion of the buffet caught my eye and it contained some fairly nice looking chocolate items. . . by the time it was all over I felt like I couldn't eat "just one small thin wafer" or I'd explode.
No, 10 days of hard fought work is not in vain. I've been back on the wagon again today and will hit the proteins and fats hard for another 10 days. See you at 180.
