Potatoes should or should not be eaten with fat? All potato diet study.

What is this guy (Dr. McDougall) trying to say at 1:26 "dilute out the nutritional qualities of the potato"..I'm confused.

I eat 2-4 large potatoes every day with a lot of olive oil. My stomach never feels right when I eat starch without fat.

I'm not ready to believe everything this guy is saying...i mean he could be working for Idaho Potatoes for all I know. But I'm still curious.

I've tried frying cooked butternut squash cubes in fat and gotten the same results as with potatoes (sweet and regular). Adding bacon, onions, garlic and spices....Mmmm.

Add some salt cod and bacon to that dauphinoise and see how she tastes.

His entire brand is built around a low fat starch based vegan diet. If it doesn't make you feel good to eat that way, I wouldn't pay him much mind.

I'd argue that the potato dilutes out the nutritional benefit of the fat. And of course that's as ridiculous as the opposite.

Olive oil is OK, but potatoes fried in duck fat is a match made in heaven. Especially when served with a big piece of duck meat.

I don't know about "should" but I don't like potatoes without fat. I like boiled potatoes with butter, roasts done in meat drippings and dauphinouse with lashings of cream. Delicious - and they keep me stable at 144 pounds!!
