You may know that potatoes are much maligned as being “pure starch” and “high glycemic” so the concept of them being the next diet food was intriguing. Sadly the link was just a headline come on for a general weight loss program but I got to thinking, “Are potatoes a good diet food?”
First, the potato is a good source of starch. If you eat the skins (and of course wash them thoroughly before you do so) you can get most of the toxins out of there.
And if you do not fry them or top them with a lot of fatty synthetic goo, you are not adding bad things or chemicals to your body. Nor are you loading up the calories.
And the potato is about as Paleolithic as you can get, meaning our ancient ancestors ate them during the time our “food genetics” were developing.
OK what about the glycemic index? It is true that potatoes, especially some varieties, are at least medium on the glycemic index but they are nutritious and low calorie, again as long as you don’t slather them in butter.
If you must top them try pepper, small doses of olive or pumpkin seed oil (a tablespoon or 2 at most) and mustard, which is lower glycemic index as well.
While I will not tell you that you can lose weight on potatoes, I will tell you that you can cut carb cravings for starchy snacks with them and they are part of our ancestral diet which makes them a pretty good diet food in my book!
Adding these potent fat burners to your daily routine for a few weeks is likely to produce fast and noticeable results in your waistline and how your clothes fit for the holidays.
And your appetite for sweets will diminish as well.
