Menu Plan Monday - Carb Cycling #5

Sunday, January 25, 2015

 
Well, I forgot that last week, was supposed to be a "slingshot" week where all my days should have been high carb days and then I should be starting over again this week. I decided that since last week was a little (or a lot) less than perfect, that I would just count it as my slingshot week and start fresh this week
 
 I also made the decision to try the turbo cycle (you can refer to this post for information on the different plans) I had been toying with the idea after the first week of the diet when I decided that I enjoyed my low carb day over my high carb day. This plan will have one high carb day to two low carb days. So I will only eat high carb twice a week rather than 3 times. Sounds good to me!
 
So here is my first TURBO CYCLE meal plan!

    1. I haven't noticed a huge difference energy wise, but will be curious once I start exercising how that will be. As for hunger, I am hungrier on my carb days. On my low carb days I am pretty satisfied, but my high carb days, I feel like I could eat more! I will keep you posted!

  2. Do you buy just egg whites for your omelets?

    1. Yes I do! Way easier. I use 3/4 cup which equals 4 egg whites! Thanks for stopping by!
