165 lbs Weightlifter (Carb Cycle)


This carb cycle meal plan alternates between high carb and low carb days. Use Day 1 meal plan on days 3,5 and 7 as well. Use Day 2 Meal plan on days 4 and 6.
*Higher Carb Days: 1,3,5,7
*Low Carb Days: 2,4,6

I recommend hitting bigger muscle groups in the gym on carb days (Legs, back, chest etc.). The glucose/stored glycogen will be beneficial fuel for heavier lifts or higher intensity sessions.

Experiment with this cycle and try lifting on low carb days and high carb days to gauge your energy levels in the gym. Carbs are front loaded (Meal 1 and 3). If you lift early in the morning you can follow this plan precisely. If you lift in the evening Meals 1 or 3 should be consumed at least 1 hour prior to your workout. Otherwise, meals can be eaten in any order. For instance, “dinner” can be swapped with meal 1, and “breakfast” can be substituted for “lunch” etc.
