I am pretty sure this cheatday is going to kill me... what do you think?

After being strictly paleo for about 2 months, and down 22 pounds, I have celebrated a roomies birthday and I think it is going to kill me.

3 Mikes Hard Lemonade

Chocolate wine with alcoholic vanilla whipped topping

2 slices of cheescake

6-ish slices of sourdough bread and chicken liver pate

probably a pound of various cheeses and crackers.

I know, this is the worst way to cheat. I am on my laptop in my bathroom typing this because I havent been able to leave the throne for about 30 minutes so far...

I had a pint of haagan daz five mint ice cream last night. Ironically I felt worse from two Lara bars today than I did from the ice cream.

I'm thinkin' your cheat day other than the sugary booze may have been more nutritious than most people's "good" days.

If it's the wine I'm thinking of (http://www.internetwines.com/rws33168.html), it's got added sugars almost certainly. It's a dessert wine. If it were just wine and chocolate flavor, it would be paleo-awesome but not nearly so seductively tasty.

Whipped topping on wine? WTF are you kids up to these days?

I'll second Shari's documentation suggestion, but add...are you sure you aren't willing to take a pic of yourself and attach it to this question as an added bonus of disincentive to future readers contemplating an apocalyptic cheat day? :-)

It won't kill you. Just make you wish you were dead. Turn on the webcam and take a pic so you can remember this moment forever because I believe this is what they call a teachable moment.

Yup, you're dead. Would you like flowers or a donation to your favorite charity?

At least you got some liver in there! Think of the nutrients! :)

Bringing your laptop into the bathroom...that's paleohacking dedication (and slightly TMI)

Yes the Universe has to smack some of us upside the head with a baseball bat before we learn some lessons (I have been hit more times than I can easily count). As someone suggested take a picture, write down how you are feeling and keep both for future reference the next time temptation comes knocking lol.

I cheated big time yesterday too and felt AWFUL this morning when I woke up. It's taken me all day to feel even halfway back to normal. I was craving sugar all week and caved and ate 2 big pieces of cake. It was delicious going in, but I surely learned my lesson. Hope you start feeling better and make sure you drink lots and lots of water!

If I was going to do the cheat day which would kill me, it would have to include a whole pizza, and then I would suffer with glutten stomach pains for two days.

And some dark beer. And some ice cream. ....

call it a learning experience and move on. Eat super clean for the next few days and remember how you feel right now the next time you're tempted. Good luck!
