You can't have your cake and eat it (too) is a popular English idiomatic proverb or figure of speech. The proverb literally means "you cannot simultaneously retain your cake and eat it". Once the cake is eaten, it is gone. It can be used to say that one cannot have two incompatible things, or that one should not try to have more than is reasonable. The proverb's meaning is similar to the phrases "you can't have it both ways" and "you can't have the best of both worlds".

Jen: Well, you can't have your cake and eat it, Li! Li: What do you mean? .

Jen: Well, you can't have your cake and eat it, Li! Li: What do you mean? How did you know I had cake today? Are you calling me fat?! Do you think I should stop eating cake?! . Li: The second example is good – you can't expect to drink a lot of alcohol without feeling the effects the next day: you can't have it both ways; you can't have your cake and eat it. Jen: And you can't have your lovely holiday without spending a lot of money on it. Li: I suppose you're right. Jen: All this talk of cake has got my stomach rumbling, I feel really hungry now. Li: There's a new cafe across the road which is selling little cupcakes, they look really delicious! We could go and get some after the programme?
