I had my first Paleo cheat Friday night in the form of beer. 4 beers to be exact. -20 points.
Let me explain. A friend wanted me to go with him to see his dad's band play at Linda's Lounge. Linda's Lounge is not the kind of place where you walk in and order a glass of cab or a skinny margarita (both of which are Paleo legal in moderation). Linda's Lounge is the kind of place you order a beer. I was already out of place enough and getting stares from the regulars, so instead of rocking the boat, I drank a cold, delicious, hoppy, refreshing Bud Light. My long lost love.
All was well while there. The beer made me full and burppy, but I felt fine jamming out to the harmonica and bluesy sound of the band. 4 beers consumed over about 3 hours...I was having fun, but not tipsy in the slightest.
My friend dropped me off at home a little before 12:30 and I was in bed before 1:00. At about 4:00 AM, I was woken by a wave of nausea. I fought the battle for a while, then finally gave in to vomiting. Not to be too graphic, but it was pure hops and wheat coming up. :(
Paleo turned beer against me! It's the only explanation I have for getting sick. (That or my friend poisined me, which he denies.) I never barf. The last time was 2 years ago, when I had a horrible virus.
***Sigh. I guess I won't be cheating anymore since it makes me ill.
If you were to have a cheat eat, what would it be?
