Days 1 and 2

Protein cycling involves varying your protein intake every two to three days, allowing your body time to repair and stabilize your metabolism without overstressing it. On the first two days of protein cycling, you should aim to eat low amounts of protein, about 40–60 grams, and high amounts of carbs, a medium amount of sugars, and a low amount of fats. To meet your low protein goal, have no more than 4 ounces of meat (like chicken breast or sirloin steak), 1 cup of cooked legumes, and 2 eggs per day, in addition to the fruits, vegetables, grains, and prebiotics recommended on The Regimen checklist.
