    Potatoes?

    Might be a dumb question but in terms of gains what's better to eat more of regular or sweet potatoes?

    Re: Potatoes?

    I eat regular potatoes in the morning and post workout. Sweet potatoes make me gag i gotta try the japanese ones. Supposedly sweet potatoes give you a longer and steady supply of carbs while regular potatoes just peak quickly and then fall off. So im guessing sweet potatoes are more efficient at providing constant energy too build muscle.

    Sweet pot fan here. Spray them with some olive oil and bake for 35 min. The skin will peel right off. 8 oz on squat and dead lift day.

    Re: Potatoes?

    My understanding is the potato ranking (gycsimic) goes something like this;

    1. Sweet Potato
    2. Red
    3. Ruset

    Lol! Unfortunately for me, I prefer them in the exact opposite order. I pretty much only eat Ruset (white) potatoes. I don't think it makes that much diffrance honestly. I think where it counts is what you put on the potato. If you put brown sugar on your sweet potato, you might as well eat cheese cake.

    Re: Potatoes?

    i like the red ones, but sweet are definitely better for you

    I bake my sweet potatoes whole in the oven. once they are almost done, i cut a lit in them and add brown sugar and marshmallows. They taste a lot better and im not really counting calories so..

    Re: Potatoes?

    Sweet potatoes contain more fiber then other potatoes, along with Vit C, E, manganese and beta carotene, all which may contribute to better gains.

    Yeah, fiber is essential for the well being of us bodybuilders. Heart health plus anal health.

    Re: Potatoes?

    White potatoes post workout, yams all other times mostly. White potatoes being a high-glycemic carb which wil stimulate insulin release for quick nutrient absorption. But give me some french fries and I'll eat those ****ers all day.

    Re: Potatoes?

    I can not stand the smell of yam therefore I can not eat them. However, I'll eat a white baked tater right off the grill no butter now sour cream.

    Re: Potatoes?

    I usually eat sweet potatoes and I just microwave it and cut it into disc and just eat them like that skin and all.. They taste fine to me but I'm asking about gains. Has anyone gained more mass eating one or the other?

    Sweet mashed is awesome and tilted kilt has great sweet fries!
