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.

The sweet potato is missing from this picture. It was still in the oven.

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!

There's a few more cherries in this one than normal. My bad.

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!

Happy lifting!
