Tips

Eat a potato-they're good for you!

Kiki76

People want to avoid carbs, but potatoes are really good for you. Zero fat, few calories...and full of vitamins and minerals. Just go for lowfat, healthy toppings.

I ate a potato as kind of a meal everyday back in 2004, I used low fat and fat free toppings. I did this as part of my regimen and in 7 months that potato helped me to lose 70 lbs. I am having to return to those roots lately, and the "potato" will be once again where it should of been all along. I also switch to and from sweet potatoes every now and then. Either way, healthy and satisfying. I love 'em!

Mmm I love potatoes, and recently I've been really into sweet potatoes. I think I read somewhere that a serving of regular potatoes actually has more Vitamin C than a serving of OJ?
