National Eat What You Want Day: May 11, 2016

If you’re a foodie at heart, then you probably already eat what you want every day. For the rest of us that are trying to maintain that uber sexy beach body, planning ahead is key. You’ve got to have cheat days, and “National Eat What You Want Day” is one of those grand occasions. Today is the day where you break all rules you have for consumption. Today consists of pb&j french toast, ooey gooey lobster grilled cheese sandwiches, and burritos that are loaded with twice your daily caloric intake allowance. And yes, today is the day where you partake in fourth meal. There might even be a fifth meal at this rate. Pace yourself, because cardiac arrest is around the corner with what’s on the menu today.
