Ha,

I started with the Shoneys breakfast bar, about 5 plates of pancakes, french toast, grits, bacon, sausage and eggs
Then I had two double stacks and a frosty shake from Wendy's
Then my wife and I ate the top of our wedding cake that we had frozen and saved to celebrate our 1 year anniversary , pretty much a whole cake
then i had two plates of crawfish pasta, one plate of jambalaya about 15-20 finger sandwiches, another piece of cake at my friends wife's baby shower
and I finished it off with 8 Miller Lights and about 10 more finger sandwiches
oh I'm sick just thinking about it.

Wow. You froze your wedding cake for a year to celebrate your anniversary.

Yeah, It's a tradition to save the top of the cake and eat it on the first anniversary. At least thats what I was told. It was surprisingly good for being frozen for a year.

Well, 10 of the 18 lbs is already gone this morning. I didn't get a chance to train yesterday so I'm not sure how that would have went, but I will definitely be training today.

Actually the fat intake should be kept somewhat high , around 30-35% of calories. The protein should be lowered around 10-15%. Fat is still being used as a primary fuel source even though you are taking in carbs. If you drop the fat you are telling your body to burn the carbs for fuel instead of it being used strictly for glycogen replenishment. You still want to keep your body fat adapted. I did go a bit overboard but I after two weeks of induction it's kind of a free for all. If you want to do it clean, which I suggest for the long haul, I would stick with oatmeal, brown rice, whole and sprouted grains and things like that. What I will probably do next week is start my carb up with some quicker carbs ( probably one "cheat" meal instead of a whole day) and as the day progresses transition to grains and healthier choices. And I will also keep it stricter aiming for around 500-600 grams of carbs.

This is actually the prescription in Ultimate Diet 2.0. He recommends fast digesting carbohydrates (not necessarily a cheat, but maybe a sports drink) at the beginning of the load to kick-start glycogen replenishment.
