  • Lost! Do Paleo don’t do Paleo, lol. “IF”? Told by everyone, don’t do potatoes. Sweet potatoes ok.:)

    YT is making me nuts! Nuts are ok, right?:-)

  • Thanks Shaun. I just stared adding in some more white starch carbs into my diet. I keep my carb intake to about 150-200 grams per day and my protein at 180-225 grams. I can feel the difference already with my workouts when I have more white carbs. My muscles feel tight and pumped. Thanks again bro.

  • After hitting a plateau on healthy keto (which helped a lot.) I started researching resistant starch and now I incorporate organic potatoes, and organic sweet potatoes! Amazing results!

  • VISITED: 4:13.
    10/5 /2017.
    THANKS.
    I like 2 fried small potatoes in olive oil for lunch….every other day! jucing the rest of the time.

  • Wanna lose some extra weight gained on this lockdown?

    Try this simple diet plan for 5 days ����✅
    Tell me how it worked for you, subscribe and click the like button if you like it!!!

  • If you are eating real food, not from a bag and loaded with salt sugar. White potatoes are healthy if cooking your self. real food always fill you up. I can often buy 5lbs white potatoes $1.

  • Hi Shaun, My name is Sam, i am 15 and I live in the UK. I don’t know if you are aware but Ramadan is starting soon, this is where you do not eat and drink between sunrise and sunset so your fasting for up to 18 hours. I was just wondering how can I keep losing weight and simultaneously keep my metabolism high. Furthermore, if there are any specific workouts or tricks and tips that could help me. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

  • hi… thanks for the great information.. i  feel tired and out of energy when am exercising so please can you tell me what to do?

  • I like cutting them into sticks and making oil-free fries in the oven. Bake at 450 F for 50 minutes on a non-stick cooking sheet. Season accordingly.

  • So by eating raw potatoes a person will get many times more resistant starch than from eating cooked ones? What is the ratio? Is the amount of resistant starch from one pound of raw potatoes equal to the amount of resistant starch in ten pounds of cooked potatoes? IF not what is the approximate ratio?

  • Love potatoes! Used to eat rice, which is fine but potatoes are a lot more filling. Mixed with chicken or beef in a bowl, crazy filling and tasty.

  • Interestingly, those results on chilled potatoes are similar to those of chilled pasta: chilled (and then re-heated) pasta is better for you than freshly-cooked pasta. Strange how starches change after being chilled, isn’t it?

  • Fixed my chronic constipation and doesn’t give me carb coma during the day and give me lots of energy for cardio so it is my go to for carbs. Note: I am generally Paleo low carb so I choose my carbs depending on which I can tolerate.

  • Thank you for reporting the truth about carbohydrates, specifically starch. Starch is what should make up the bulk of our calories. Potatoes specifically are something everyone should eat daily.

  • I boil potatoes in pork broth (which I get from boiling pork belly to tenderise it). Few things are tastier, and yes, I do keep the skin on. Talking about foods that are as tasty with so little effort, only sweet potato and beef (boiled with a dash of pepper, salt and cinnamon) trump potatoes for me.

  • Thanks Shaun. I just stared adding in some more white starch carbs into my diet. I keep my carb intake to about 150-200 grams per day and my protein at 180-225 grams. I can feel the difference already with my workouts when I have more white carbs. My muscles feel tight and pumped. Thanks again bro.

  • Here we are talking about white potatoes or white unprocessed starches. “Unprocessed starches” also include beans and vegetables like, sweet potatoes, squash, and corn.

  • Organic refers to farmers avoiding chemical fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and synthetic products to engineer/grow foods and feed and raise livestock. We don’t really know what happens with food that is not organic and most people don’t want to know. (meet the cow that makes the burger kinda thing). Organic foods are better for the environment, better tasting, and healthier (debatable some say) because you aren’t eating chemicals/hormones.

  • You did not talk about the point that I am most concerned. I always assume that sweet/yum potatoes are considered much healthier because they contain more fibers. Compared with them, regular potatoes are less healthy because of less amount of fibers and lift the blood sugar level faster. Is this right or wrong? I usually do not eat skin of potatoes as most of other people.

  • Dude… your info is confusing. Just to be clear, do we all realize there are 3 types of sweet potatoes? Sweet White, Sweet Red, Sweet Golden. Add to that most ppl confuse SP with Yams… it’s not clear in your speaking of your comparing a sweet white potato or a Reg white potato….. I can’t listen to this

  • Just simply from partaking in this diet my results have been exceptional. I would recommend this diet “sowo hope site” (Google it) to anyone to try it. The results seem to come so fast. I additionally know another person who lost 12 pounds.

  • awesome, thanks a lot again for those great infos (I am one of those scientific nerds that like those details and rationals).
    Is it the same for other carbs such as rice, quinoa, yam etc? ie. non-processed carbs.
    thanks a lot!

  • Thanks, mate. You answered a question I couldn’t find. I can reheat my potatoes and still have them resistant. Finally. Thanks again, mate. No more cold spuds for me.

  • I corporate sweetpotatoes in my diet. I consume them at night time and i feel light.. i want to lost weight.. im. Gonna update you after 2 weeks:)

  • I have been doing paleo for 2 weeks now. Should we still eat the potatoes if it is not a HIgh Intensity Workout.??? I am 44 yr old women who does alot of barre classes and pilates. I do two to three days a week cardio. I am also soo confused on which diet to follow. I LOVE your videos as well. You are excellent.!!! Trish –

  • That was great information especially the changes that happen to the sweet potato when it is baked! I have always baked my potatoes cause I thought boiling them leached out the nutrients. Will change my methods to boiling. Thanks, you guys are great!

  • I feel like this is inaccurate for me anyway. I am on a low carb high intensity work out and high fat diet. I feel like this would throw me out of ketosis despite your claims. I am not willing to try this but I do appreciate your information and you’ve helped me lose lots of weight

  • Loved hearing about your experience! Can you please link your interview with Jeannine? Thank you for the video!
    btw your daughters are adorable ��

  • Remember guys, you need 4700mg of potassium a day, 1 medium potato has nearly 1g of potassium! Alternative is to eat a ridiculous amount of beetroot & leaves, swiss chard or such. Plus here’s a big thing, you can retrograde potato by cooking and storing in the fridge for 24hrs then reheat as mentioned in the vid, don’t just cool for half an hour.

    I have them air fried with chicken, tenserstem broccoli and soup.

  • 🙂  very enlightening Brad. Thanks for another informative video on Nutrition.  I’m not   fussy when it comes to  sweet potatoes. I really don’t like their texture or taste…. At least now I don’t have to feel so guilty when it comes to eating white potatoes!

  • I don’t argue that potato is a good source for energy for athletes but he has completely wrong scientific information about low carb. he needs to read the book “The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance.”

  • Hello, I come from the gaming side of YouTube, and the hilarious side, I come in peace, I decided to check out the other sides of YouTube

  • Home made home fries (with skin) in garlic butter with onions and capsicum…so good I don’t care if they’re fattening. I don’t eat them very often. I love kumara (NZ sweet potato). Also like a few in my homemade spicy chicken soup. Most of the time I’m on a Keto diet.

  • Idahoan instant potatoes lists on their ingredient list firstly: idahoan potatoes………………….. please stop being ignorant whoever’s their CEO. Anyone could certainly dislodge you from the market. Fix your mistakes.

  • Been cooking yellow potatoes in a crockpot then cooing them in the fridge foe a year now it’s done wonders for me, My heaviest was 277 now I’m 177 feel great

  • I have listened to information about how carbs were connected with excess fat and therefore basically to keep clear of carbohydrates, at the same time had certainly not regarded using them to lose the weight. The number one thought behind the 4 stage fat loss treatment is to train your entire body to burn fat for energy in place of carbohydrate. https://truehealthreport.com/eat-stop-eat-review-journey/

  • My friend: i ugly like a potato��
    Me:no you dont

    Me:potato is beautiful, potato is healty for human, potato can make many food.

  • I don’t argue that potato is a good source for energy for athletes but he has completely wrong scientific information about low carb. he needs to read the book “The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance.”

  • tim steel in the potato hack says there is 22 gm in an average medium sized potato when the potato is raw….down to.75 gm when it is cooked then back to 2-3 gms after it is cooled…i love a tbsp of bobs red mill potato starch (8gm per tbsp)…and yes it does help with weight loss. I have your book Spud fit challenge and tim steele potato hack…the two books together helped a lot…as well as potato reset by janine….tim steel wrote the forward to your book…did you read his book?..what do you think about the different information…just curious….looking forward to your next book in print…on amazon canada

  • Thermodiet is bs, it gave me the same thing on every option. Dont listen to this guy, he is lying. Not on his ideas but his recommendations, everything on that website is the exact same thing on every option. Do it yourself, it’s fake he is fake. Potatoes are good but he in general is a liar. Dont trust him.

  • Hi Sam, You will be fine. This is essentially intermittent fasting. There is no need to eat every few hours to “maintain your metabolism”. The only thing I would watch out for is that you don’t overeat or significantly under eat during your meal times during the Ramadan.

  • No GMO. No gluten. High in fiber. Grows almost anywhere. Doesn’t require much care. Loaded with minerals. I try to stay away from grains in favor of the potato.

  • its helps with heart health because its one of the highest potassium sources you can eat which is one of the main things ur heart runs on that with sodium and its got magnesium as well. these are the big three ur heart runs on.

  • I didn’t even have to watch the whole video to know potatoes are completely good for you, vegetable grown from the earth. Common sense. Eat as much as you want. People have been doing potato only diets eating as much as you want and these people are losing 100s of pound of fat and their blood works are looking amazing, dropped blood pressure and blood sugars are perfect.eat potatoes all day.

  • .i.always get told I shouldn’t eat them, but I don’t listen I don’t ike rice., I sometimes have pasta, but I mostly have potato love it ����

  • There’s not a lot of talk and I don’t know details… but it’s not good to cook potatoe skins in oven… best boiled, sautéed or steamed… probably the little potatoes are better for styeaming and you get more skin… my understanding is that there is a chemical reaction that makes the skins unhealthy when baked… just sayin’… I don’t know what the reality is… just heard this recently…. more research needs to be done

  • Potatoes keep your stomach full but they only have less than 100kcal/100g if you boil them. Rice on the other hand has over 300kcal/100g when boiled and pasta has over 300kcal/100g. I like to boil them without peeling them first so the flavor stays rich and it doesn’t lose as many vitamins and minerals.

  • 5:54 Olive oil isn`t meant to be cooked with as it becomes carcinogenic under high heat. It is a LOW HEAT oil. Coconut and Grape Seed are excellent high heat oils.

  • Thermodiet is bs, it gave me the same thing on every option. Dont listen to this guy, he is lying. Not on his ideas but his recommendations, everything on that website is the exact same thing on every option. Do it yourself, it’s fake he is fake. Potatoes are good but he in general is a liar.

  • I started eating sweet potatoes back in May 2019 and I lost 73 lbs. I just eat 1 sweet potato at lunch and that’s all. Nothing else. I eat every hours. I do not start eating till I am hungry. I just came off a 8 hour fast of sleeping. Protein to start, sweet potato at lunch and than dinner. Four hours apart 1200 calories a day. My A1c was 5.7. I count my count my calories on myfitnesspal.com and I write in the journal how I feel.

  • I noticed over and over again that you recommend organic food, why is that?
    And thank you for sharing your knowledge, it’s helpful.
