“No, wait, make that a large stack,” I said with a smile.
Twenty minutes later, as I mopped up the last pool of syrup with my final forkful of delicious, chocolatey pancakes, my business partner and friend, Bedros Keuilian said, “Good
thing you ordered the large stack.”
I smiled. Darn right. I love pancakes, I love chocolate, and I love syrup. It’s the triple threat.
Now here’s where things get interesting.
Once we returned to the uber-cool Hard Rock Hotelool Hard Rock Hotel and met up with the other trainers at our meeting, I wandered over to the buffet breakfast and continued to make a peanut butter sandwich on whole-wheat toast. Accompanied by a bowl of fresh blueberries, strawberries, and pineapple, it made for a perfect second breakfast.
At lunch (just 2 hours later), there were fewer carbs, as I filled my plate with chicken, salmon, and a giant spinach salad (full of spinach and candied pecans).
I admit it, I kind of dug around the bowl – with the tongs, of course – to get as many candied pecans as possible.
Later in the afternoon I had a protein-carb bar as a snack, and then at dinner at Donavan’s Seafood house (we went there five nights in a row, lol) it was sea bass with mushroom risotto. You wanted to lick the plate clean, it was so good.
And then – yes, AND then…the team at Donavan’s brought out some desserts – on the house – to thank us for visiting so often.
I couldn’t resist the brownie and ice cream, because I love chocolate. So I had half of that dessert.
Do you think I had enough carbs that day?
I did. But…guess who is still as lean as ever?
Yep, still at 9% fat with my famous ripped abs (from the photo that has been stolen around the world).
How do I do it?
Well, I don’t eat like that every day…but, you can eat like that on a cycle. A carb-cycle.
You can enjoy eating like this too, once in a while, IF you have the right eating plan.
In fact, so many TT readers have asked me over the years “How do you do carb-cycling?”
I haven’t had a good answer…until now.
Here’s the best carb-cycling method called “macro-patterning” explained by nutrition expert Shaun Hadsell in this free video:
In fact, “macro-patterning” is already getting a TON of national attention, and for good reason…it WORKS.
