I eat maybe 4 or 5 yams a day. Is this too many?

Agree. It's a safe food to eat from the perspective of nutritional profiling. As long as you feel good and are meeting your fitness/physiological goals there isn't much cause for concern.

How's it working for you? How do you feel? Do you think it's too many?

You will hear differing opinions, but I'd say it's real food, eat as much as you want :) Just don't let it replace all the fat and protein in you diet.

4.5 yams for sure is the limit in every being without exception.

Personally, I get sleepy if I eat that many carbs. It's all about how it feels for you. Try eating less for a couple days and see if you feel better/worse. Then try more maybe.

You probably mean sweet potatoes, since yams are rare (http://homecooking.about.com/od/howtocookvegetables/a/sweetpotatodiff.htm) Do you peel them first? I wouldn't say it's bad but you should try to eat a diet with more variety. Try skinned white potatoes, ripe or fried plantains, chestnuts (it's the perfect time of year and you can buy them fresh or roasted/bagged), cooked parsnips, cooked turnips, cooked rutabaga...lots of wonderful starches out there that have differing nutritional profiles
