So, I know I’ve mentioned before what my carb cycling diet consists of, but I took some pictures to show you guys and girls what a typical “up day” looks like.
Breakfast on this particular up day comes out to 200 calories, 24 g of carbs, 25 g of protein, and 0.4 g of fat. It consists of strawberries, sweet potato, egg whites, and spinach.
My morning and afternoon snacks are the same and consist of a whey protein shake made with unsweetened almond milk, Quaker oats, and frozen cherries. The totals for these meals are as follows: 444 calories, 43 g of carbs, 29 g of protein, and 8 g of fat. I love my snacks on these days! It curbs my sweet tooth cravings!
Lunch is sweet potato, chicken breast, egg whites, and spinach. Totals are 200 calories, 19 g of carbs, 27 g of protein, and 2 g of fat.
Dinner is the same as lunch, minus the egg whites. Here are the totals: 194 calories, 37 g of carbs, 22 g of protein, and 3 g of fat.
I’m allowed to use condiments that have 2 g of sugar or less per serving. I prefer to cook down my spinach in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and use Newman’s Own Family Italian Recipe salad dressing.
Comment with any questions you may have! I’ll post a down day diet soon!
