Since im going to be eating a lot of carbs, I dont want to eat the stuff with preservatives in it. I would love to get bread from a local bakery but they dont put the nutrition facts on this. Anyone have any ideas?
I'd try and go for whole wheats.
Whole wheats for sure... but they still have preservatives.
giant eagle and other stores have natrual food sections go check them out. you will pay a little more for this kind of foods though
Why make a carb load difficult?
Its supposed to break up the monotony of eating clean/dieting or w/e. If you want to stick to healthier foods, such as whole wheats, then so be it, but worrying about preservatives a bit much.
If you are set on no preservatives however, I could only think of two foods: Oats and fruit.
Complication breeds desperation.
I have no problem with preservatives, but when eating so much I start to think... We all know the study about aspartame and lab rats... They were given quite a bit of the stuff compared to their body weight and they showed kidney problems. My idea is similar... how much preservative could I have safely?

Stick with the simple guidelines. Eating healthier whole wheat carbohydrates is best. But there isn't anything wrong with eating white bread for example. As long as its a starch and low in fat its game.
Also keep the sugar intake to a minimum. Nothing wrong with having a little but don't go nuts or it won't work right. I've done alot of refeeds and once you do it a few times you pretty much go on auto pilot. I always ate a ton of whole wheat bread, oats, pasta, rice, raisin bran etc.
Also relax a bit and have a little fun.

I like Rudi's organic whole wheat bread.http://www.rudisbakery.com/products/product_faq/Our breads are also made without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or genetically modified organisms.
People who don't know how to keep themselves healthy ought to have the decency to get themselves buried, and not waste time about it.
Don't think too much about eating freakishly healthy during your load. My laod last week consisted of tons of blueberry bagels, mac and cheese, potatoes, a few pop tarts and some coco puffs. It's not going to make a whole lot of difference, plus the more healthy you get, the more fiber you'll have to eat, and that can screw up the load to a point.
Weight:~160 @ 13-15 bf%?....starting figure after nearly a year of battling CFS/mono...so not too bad imo.
Don't know anymore..don't care atm.
