    Which Potato?

    I need a consensus on the subject of potatoes. A says they’re great and you can eat all you want while B says that you should eat only sweet potatoes; what’s the real story? Which (if any) potatoes are a good every day food and which should be avoided?

    Agreed.

    And if you're lazy you can eat them like Sean Sherk, in baby food form.

    I guess potatoes in moderation would be fine. Sweet potatoes are tasty, sweet potato fries, ftw!

    My consensus is that you should eat them rather than think about them.

    According to my exhaustive research (which consisted of reading the South Beach Diet book), potatos are too easily absorbed by the body, resulting in an insulin spike. Sweet potatos have more fibre and nutrients and are more slowly absorbed, so they are the way to go.

    And now, I have to go make some sweet potato fries, thanks for the suggestion!

    QFT.


    Also potatos are potatos. They are not butter, bacon, cheese, sour cream, etc...
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Sweet Potatoes gets 1st, the fries are great.

    Potatoes comes in second. These dudes are higher up on the glycemic index (seen by the insulin spike) so if you are going to eat potatoes eat them soon after a workout since they are so easily absorbed your body will make better use of them then, than it would later on. However, if you eat a potatoe with with another carb that isn't as high on the GI they will balance each other out. Potatoes are cheap so don't give them up completely

    I make one cup of hashbrowns in my scrambled eggs (5 egg whites, 1 whole egg) and eat them with a slice of whole wheat bread. I just spray some canola oil spray on the pan and brown them up a bit and scramble the eggs in the same pan. Fairly easy, I don't get tired of them and relatively cheap.
