I felt like I over did the carbs on Saturday and was pretty worried about the aftermath. I woke up Sunday feeling good and still was lean with a 6 pack. I don’t think ill go another full day of carbs in every meal because I did feel an upset stomach that night and a little the next morning. Its always good to listen to your body.
