Nutrition met eating so-called "junk" foods

I'm on a bit of a chocolate craving boat - just in case you're wondering. Hormones.

Strangest thing happened today. I somehow managed to meet my protein goal half way through the day, and still had 750 calories left. Note protein was the only macro met at this stage. And my micros also, because I had tons of veg with my breakfast omelette and a glass of milk.

Then I decided I'm gonna have sweets for dinner. So I bought 750 worth of ice cream and chocolate. Oh and a small pack with 4 cookies for my evening tea.

And I'll be damned, after eating all that I met my carb and fat goals for the day. See? You CAN meet your macros eating any food you want. ;)

Note: I'm not advocating that you should do this or saying it's generally healthy. It was just an interesting find for me.

    If you ate even a single granule of sugar, it is highly likely that you're going to die within the next few minutes.

    And with that sugar, if you EVER drink a diet drink, you'll die instantly.
