That's not that big of a deal, honestly. I'm a big fan of the carb refeed, and although your choices are far from appropriate (yams, potatoes, white rice and soaked beans would be far better choices), it's amazing how heavy carb binges can make you wake up lighter. I'm doing a carb cycle right now. Today I ate a mere 42g of fat and almost 220g of carbs. I ate 6 yams and an apple with assorted vegetables. Tomorrow will be a repeat.

The human body is an amazing puzzle! Don't beat yourself up. A heavy carb binge on occasion is great to boost leptin levels, which is the hormone that tells your body to release fat. Leptin levels drop like a rock on high fat/low carb, so that's why people tend to stall after a few weeks. A heavy carb shot may be just what you need. Next time, just try white rice and yams so you don't get the gluten or lectins
