Sweet potato over white potatoes?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hey Paleo crew,

Why do most people in here recommend sweet potato over white potatoes as a good source of carbs? (here in Denmark sweet potato is somewhat more seldom used as opposed to potatos that we eat all the time)

Also what is best`? Baked or boiled?

(no micro, no nuke, just call me Larry Finkelstein)

All the best

Bjorn

When I go to the gym, I pack cold, boiled potatoes of all kinds (white, sweet, and purple) that are sprinkled with Himalayan rock salt. Cold, boiled potatoes have a much lower glycemic index that hot, baked potatoes and they supply the body with a steady stream of glucose which is extremely important after a workout. I eat my potatoes and drink my protein shake as soon as I come into the locker room out of breath from lifting weights for an hour. Ever since I stopped doing the low-carb thing and started eating potatoes, I've gained a good deal of muscle mass and minimal fat.

Because sweet potatoes are like completely awesome, and regular potatoe taste like shit in comparison.

You'd have to be completely fucking mental to choose regular spuds over sweet potatoes. If I wasn't diabetic I'd eat them every single day.

Just eat real food, and potatoes are real food. Just set aside all the neuroses about cooking, preparation, nutrient profiles, etc...
