Arrow Sample Diet Plan:

Diet: 225-250 grams of protein. On rest days 200-225 carbs. First day after rest day gets 350 carbs. Days 2 and 3 gets 300 carbs. Always keep the fats lower than 60 grams.

All carbs are from oatmeal, rice, potatoes. Fats are from olive oil, peanut butter, almonds. Protein is mostly chicken and lean meats. All means from lunch to dinner will include either a salad or broccoli or some other green vegi. Cheat meals on Sunday dinner, usually something Italian; either pizza or pasta with meat.
