Carb loading

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I need to carb load on Friday for an event on Saturday, has anyone got any tips? I'm not a huge fan of pasta. For breakfast on the day I'm having eggs, wholewheat toast, banana and honey.
  2. Fill up on carbs the day before. What other advice are you looking for, a list of foods that contain carbohydrates?

    Google is your friend. Much better than compact answers you could get here, possibly leaving you unsure.
  3. I ate a load of figs on top of everything else the day before a triathlon. The next morning not only was I carb loaded but one quick trip to the bog and I felt as if I'd been pulled through with a porcupine. The cheapest form of moderately "healthy" simple carbs are the "Savers" and "Value" bags of raisins and sultanas in the baking section of the supermarket.
