Why Potatoes Are Good for You

Thanks for sharing. Report
I enjoy both sweet & regular potatoes. I add them to vegetable soup, stews/chowders, & serve w/ roasted beef or chicken. Plus chili beans over a baked potato makes a quick nutritious meal. They are part of a healthy balanced food plan. Just like I no longer eat a steak every night, potatoes will only be included once or twice a week. Report

Outdated info, typical for SparkPeople. They should cull all those old articles and get with the 21st century.

Potatoes are high carb UNLESS you cook and cool them. I don't have any weight problems, and I am already limiting carbs and hardly ever touch sugar, never touch gluten or wheat. So I do enjoy a small serving of potatoes a few times per week. By a small serving, I mean one quarter cup. Report
I know that for me the potatoes have added to cravings that I have experienced prior to following ketogenic lifestyle. I am an addict to sugar and realize that I will need to limit my carbs for the rest of my life. Others may not have sugar addiction. Just like some people can have a drink and stop, others can’t and are alcoholics. Report
spuds are a dud when it comes to their effect on your blood glucose level. Potatoes fall into the moderately high to high ranges on the glycemic index scale, which measures the effects of foods on blood glucose. Potatoes actually rank closer to table sugar, which consists of glucose and fructose, than to other starchy foods that contain long and complex chains of glucose, according to the Linus Pauling Institute Report
Great information! Report
