    Sweet Potatoes

    Ive heard that us bodybuilders should have sweet potatoes in our diet. Why are they better for you than other taters or are they?

    Lower glycemic index and have more nutrients than the other spuds.

    They also have alot of fiber. Especially the skin. Sweet potatos taste like a dessert to me with a little cinnamon and splenda.

    I gobble down sweet potatoes with nothing added. I think they taste great.

    I developed a love of sweet potatoes and yams from my grandma. (I lived with her for 9 years). She used to bake them in the oven or just microwave them. I would eat them plain as snacks when I was in middle school.

    So how are you guys preparing your taters?

    Bake them? For how long? I got some this weekend @ the grocery store and they are a huge spud. Do you cut them in half and then just eat half at a time?

    I'm not particularly fond of sweet potatoes. I generally dont like any sweetish taste in my food. What would be the next best potato? i presently use red potatoes.

    Yams are not as sweet as sweet potato. But these are harder to find (you could look in Asian grocery stores). You could also look for Taro Root... Similar to potato/yam and not very sweet but the GI is much better than potato's.

    Problem with other potatoes is that the GI is very variable and it is hard to determine just what it will be after cooking...

    I personally prefer yams to sweet potatoes,though both are yummy.

    In some parts, especially southern US, sweet potatoes are called Yams. But i know which tuber you are referring to.

    So yams are not sweet even though they have a higher natural sugar content than sweet potatoes? http://www.gnc.com/health_notes/heal...002009&lang=en

    Sweet potatos are really sweet? Somehow I donĀ“t find it to be sweet. They are something, not sweet.
