    Question to those who do Carb-ups:

    What types of carbs do you eat to keep it as primal as possible?

    I'm planning a ~6000 cal carb-up and would like as much variety as possible! So far I have:

    Sweet potatoes
    Rice (white/brown)
    Milk
    Fruits (Bananas/Berries)

    Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    White rice, sweet potatoes, some fruits but not too much because of fructose. You're not gonna be able to stay primal and do 6000 calories of carbs.

    Yeah...I had a feeling that would be the case. Bagels/Spaghetti just pack so much of a carb-punch :\.

    Get some white rice flour and make some pancakes... That's what I'm going to do. White rice looks pretty safe.

    like others said try to stay away from the fructose, when I "carb up" i eat a lot and a lot and a lot of sweet potatoes, and brown rice. there is about 400 calories in a pint of rice. also like others said make rice flour. I will use that in skim milk protein shakes, but beware it does end up expanding when it is in the stomach.
    I would still try to stay away from grains, and you might be better doing it over the course of two days instead of just one.
    trust me carbing up is not really fun. You will be tired, and lethargic all day. You will most likely end up taking a lot of naps! i had one two weekends ago and ended up sleeping for 11.5 hours?!?!? hahaha thank god for an alarm clock in the morning!

    if you plan on staying primal when doing this you are not going to have an easy time and get that many calories in, but it is possible trust me!

    though i will admit, that sometimes I will have a nice bowl of steel-cut outs :-/

    Seems like me and rice flour will have to become friends...haha!

    Ahhhh - I'll try my best to do this primally, I wasn't planning on it, but am always up for a challenge!
