Don’t Be Hatin’ On Potatoes!

I’ve long said potatoes have been unfairly demonized! It’s a whole food packed with nutrition (see nutrition chart and link below). Lately I’ve been eating the “golden” potatoes which I find tastier and creamier than normal white potatoes. This meal or snack has good sustainable energy and a very low glycemic load due to the potatoes high “resistant starch” -starch that acts like fiber and is not digested and absorbed in the stomach or small intestine and passed on to the large intestine.

Boiled potatoes taste great after being refrigerated, unlike baked potatoes in my opinion. The extra water in boiled or steamed potatoes also helps with satiety.

If you simply are having a hard time sticking to low carb, maybe it’s not for you! I don’t believe in one diet to fit all people. The best diet is what you can stick to for the long term. Stop making yourself partake in diets you don’t ENJOY!

Is the Keto Diet so popular at this moment confusing you? Have your tried it? Do you understand ketones and glycogen? Ever wonder why you gain 5lbs the moment you break your keto diet and eat the smallest amount of bread? You don’t have to be a “low carb-er” to loose weight or be healthy!
