Notes: I rested and got fatter. Must have just over-eaten.
I have to go back and see what you ate this week, wasn't able to do that this week.

The white rice is my lone concession to an inability to get enough carbs in with just tubers and fruit if I have to do it all at once on the weekends. Also because I like rice and I don't think it's hurting me to have it once a week.

If you're going to eat carbs at all, these are probably your safest choices. I try to lean more toward the starches rather than fruits because fructose can only be used by the liver, and then only to replenish liver glycogen or to be converted into fat.
The only reason to do this at all is because heavy anaerobic activity like weightlifting requires muscle glycogen. If I were just walking and doing light resistance work, I wouldn't need to eat many carbohydrates at all. The point of the AD is to operate on fat most of the time, but still have sugar available for the activities that demand it. The long abstentions from carbohydrates during the week ensure that muscles soak up the carb re-feed rather than allowing it to just be blood sugar or be converted to fat tissue.

The last paragraph nailed what I was not understanding.
