Home Training for a Triathlon

Carb loading

Afternoon all, 


I have my first Olympic dist tri on sunday and I thought I'd take nutrition a bit more seriously this time out. 

I've got my plan for on the bike, but pre loading/carb loading has me abit confused.  

the common theme is 8-10g per kg of body mass.  Being a rather chunky monkey at 86kg, that guideline would suggest I need to consume between 688g and 860g of Carbs a day!!

Thats a hell of a lot!

How do you manage it while eating clean? Having porridge, potatoes, rice 6 slice of bread yesterday I only managed to shoe-horn in 267g
