  • 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
    My friend: really?
    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Good idea having subtitles because the Aussie accent is a little strong but you know it’s a bit tiresome keep reading subtitles so maybe you should speak a little slower and clearer no offence just trying to give some constructive criticism here

  • 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.

  • If you want to shed pounds, it is best to check out Custokebon Secrets on the google search engine. They will make it easier to get the body you deserve.

  • Here we are talking about white potatoes or white unprocessed starches. “Unprocessed starches” also include beans and vegetables like squash, and corn. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as unprocessed white rice. Both brown rice and quinoa still has many carbs vs. non-starchy vegetables, so modest or sparing portions are still in effect. That is all there is to it, folks, don’t make it more complicated than it is.

  • oh, and I have one question:
    while eating only potatoes there is almost 0% fat intake (0.1 g per 100 g = 1 g per kg).
    I know that we usualy eat too much fat, but is it ok if there is almost none of it? I’m just cutious.

  • Don’t resistant starch increase endotoxin production? And when consuming starch, isn’t it better to cook it down to nearly pure sugar since large starch molecules can pass through the intestinal wall through persorption and can damage the cells?

  • Thank you for sharing this Video, your Children are so, Beautiful, thank you for sharing them, you all Dancing made me want to Dance, have a Wonderful, Thursday night, You look, Great, love, Diana Lipski ��

  • Does the glycemic index in fresh baked potatoes really matter? Is the extra couple of grams of resistance starch from cooling that beneficial if you already eat a lot of fiber from things like avocado?

  • Generally speaking, consume your potatoes in your post-workout meal on resistance training days. Keep lower carb on your cardio days. Thanks for the feedback!:)

  • Love the video, potatoes are awsome, so tired of ppl putting this veggie down, I just like them plain. Thankyou for your video, have a great day!��

  • Potatoes are awesome, white and sweet, combine with broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots and some herbs/spices and you have an amazing satisfying super food meal which isn’t even expensive lol

  • Thank you for this video. I started the potato-diet today and have researched as much as possible about it, just to be as fully prepared as possible.
    THis thing with the resistant starch bothered me because here in Vienna it’s already winter and eating cold plain potatoes is just not gonna work for me.
    Thanks to your explanation I’m going to eat my potatoes warm and am hoping to continue this diet….not just because of the weight loss but much rather because of all the other benefits.

  • I go through food and alcohol phases. Right now I’m back into rice (instead of potatoes). I wonder if I could do this with rice?:-) Granted, I still like taters. I guess lots of brown rice with veggies would make me macrobiotic. By the way, actor Dirk Benedict (The A Team and Battlestar Galactica) wrote a GREAT true life story book long ago called “Confessions of a Kamikazee Cowboy” regarding healing cancer with brown rice/macrobiotics.

  • 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.

  • You seem to answer a good majority of the questions here so i feel it could be productive to ask this, I eat Oatmeal, White potatoes and Wheat Bread as well as spinach for my carbs daily majority of my carbs come from the white potatoes though is that ok? i workout daily of course 

  • Watching this I’m trying to see if eating rice that has been cooked then cooled then reheated actually helps digestion because when I eat rice normally fresh cooked it seems to cause constipation..

  • 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.

  • anyone done the potato diet cooking the potatoes on fry pan with just a bit of butter or ghee, its hard for me to do potato diet without butter, i dont need any sauces or spices really just salt and butter

  • Thanks buddy am trying this from the Middle East is there a problem using lemon on top of my boiled potato? Or will it help burn more weight?

  • I wanted to put out there something that might affect others as it does me. I tried this potato diet several times and failed each time. The reason is because I got really bad bloating and diarrhea. Sorry if that’s TMI. I also had blood sugar issues with WHITE potatoes. I’d eat a plate then 20 minutes later I’d feel nauseous, typical symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia. What I already knew is that I have hypoglycemia and IBS. And I figured out that I can’t eat white potatoes, especially after they have cooled down. But I was also dealing with food addiction and wanted to do the potato diet for the same reason Andrew did. So after some research I figured out that whole grains are very similar nutritionally to white potatoes. But WHOLE grains don’t set off my IBS or hypoglycemia (where processed grains do). So what I did was replace the white potatoes with whole grains (oatmeal, brown rice, cooked wheat berries, but NOT anything made from store bought flour, not even “whole grain flour” or “whole wheat flour”. I buy 25lb tubs of wheat berries and grind to flour myself if I want bread) and I eat lots of sweet potatoes. I find this is working great for me! It’s simple. Satisfying and it doesn’t cause any issues. So anybody else who has issues with white potatoes but still wants to do the spudfit challenge may want to give that a shot.

  • Thank you so much for this video bro. I been scared of carbs at first until my body bout went into shock and I’ve learned how important carbs are. Now I’ve been wondering if potatoes were good or bad. This helps so much. Definitely a thumbs up from me.

  • Hello, no offense but I tried the potato hack and had to stop since it triggered sugar cravings. I started to binge on sweets….this is NOT for everyone…love potatoes but had to stop, and also, it was not good for my arthritis…

  • Andrew if you have time you have to watch this clilp from Louis CK, even if it’s not your type of humor. It totally fits the SpudFit memebers’ dilemma.

  • Can you please tell people why not to refrigerate raw potatoes and how to check if your supermarket has already had them in the fridge

    It increases the achrilamide or how ever it’s spelt makes them tough to eat and makes you n your stomach feel like crap

    Search up why not to btw
    It’s fine to refrigerate cooked ones though

  • I was on that keto diet for 4 weeks I started to feel a huge energy drop and not feeling strong enough to even do 1 push up so I took the keto diet and I placed it in the bin.. I am adding boiled patatoes now and Im pretty sure I will keep losing weight but without having this huge energy drop this time that will lead me on the long run to just all my muscles im.pretty sure

  • Interesting So I guess it depends on what nurtrients you are looking for and the preparation. I always liked the flavor of sweet potatos better but I won’t object to a white one either. Does microwaving have the same effect as baking a potato?

  • Potatoes are awesome, white and sweet, combine with broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots and some herbs/spices and you have an amazing satisfying super food meal which isn’t even expensive lol

  • Is there an ideal pairing with a legume or? such that the combination of the protein in potatoes creates a complete protein the way beans and rice do?

  • This channel cracks me up. The owner, Christopher has a video where he rightfully talks about how most people don’t think for themselves, but then goes on to basically become a mouthpiece for the sugar industry.
    We know sugar causes obesity.
    Fructose causes obesity.

    In fact, it is nature’s weight gaining chemical.
    Dr Richard Johnson proves it in his video, The Origins of Obesity and the Fattening of Man.
    Sugar does trigger obesity, as well as metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
    I, Dr Richard Johnson and Dr Robert Lustig agree.
    It’s True.

  • Good idea having subtitles because the Aussie accent is a little strong but you know it’s a bit tiresome keep reading subtitles so maybe you should speak a little slower and clearer no offence just trying to give some constructive criticism here

  • I eat Oatmeal every morning about 200 calories worth 1 bowl.

    Do i have to eat carbs at dinner so its in my stomach for when i go to bed to replenish my Glycogen? or can i continue to eat Oatmeal for breakfast. I know your body only does some stuff when you sleep.

  • Hey Shaun. I was wondering. I’ve heard, from you i believe, that you shouldn’t have a post workout anything after a HIIT session. Well I do HIIT after my weight training, right after. So Should i have a PW shake after my weight lifting then get into the HIIT or wait till after the HIIT.

  • 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.

  • Hey Shaun, what do you consider a high intensity excersicer? I work out 4 days a week, 45-60 minutes on heavy weight training (alternating body parts every time along with using myself to up the weight) along with 30 minutes of cardio (elliptical at a moderately high rate but not so high I get out of breathe). I am 6’1″ and 183lbs with decent muscle tone.

  • When you say: potato contains 2-3% resistant starch… are you talking about Raw potato or Cooked potato?
    I beleive it`s a huge difference…

  • This channel cracks me up. The owner, Christopher has a video where he rightfully talks about how most people don’t think for themselves, but then goes on to basically become a mouthpiece for the sugar industry.
    We know sugar causes obesity.
    Fructose causes obesity.

    In fact, it is nature’s weight gaining chemical.
    Dr Richard Johnson proves it in his video, The Origins of Obesity and the Fattening of Man.
    Sugar does trigger obesity, as well as metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
    I, Dr Richard Johnson and Dr Robert Lustig agree.
    It’s True.
    Proof:

  • Baking, boiling (for mashed) or roasting are the best ways to prepare. If roasting potatoes, try a small spray of olive oil with a little garlic powder and lots of oregano, basil and rosemary. You should NEVER fry potatoes or overload your baked potatoes with toppings. That’s a big No-No.

  • Game changer! Ive lost 22 kilos eating potatos (cold because of the resistant starch thing) and ive wondered about eating them hot but was afraid of messing up my progress. Today marks a new chapter in my potato journey! Honestly bro ur an inspiration and i couldn’t have started my weightloss journey without ur videos. I used to dredd going shopping just because i hated walkong around for an hour. Now i take my son out for walks around town for 3/4 hours and love it. Much love to you brother ❤

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

  • Haha….it’s confusing OFF of Youtube too.:) Ultimately, it comes down to what plan gets you results AND what you can stick to for the long-term. Nuts are “OK”, but only when treated more like a condiment and not a food source on its own. We actually have a Youtube video on eating nuts….of course…haha.

  • love how real you are. also how barely and whole food vegan drink coffee and you do! i love my coffee and not giving it up haha especially being a mama

  • They are as healthy as sugar because starch is made from sugar, your body breaks down starch into sugar. There are about the same amount of sugar molecules in one gram of starch as one gram of sugar. It’s as if he is saying a tonne of bricks is heavier than a tonne of feathers. Your body can produce any glucose if required from the proteins you eat. Carbs are not required. Most Europeans didn’t eat potatoes until the Spanish came back from South America in the early 15th century. We have only consumed them for about 500 years!

  • Well, most people doing this diet just cook all their potatoes once a week instead of a couple potatoes every day so kind of a moot point, but good info as well.

  • I like you health advice. Your one of the few health gurus that make sense. Eliminating the polyunsaturated fats from my diet healed my fatty liver disease.

  • Since I’ve stop eating meat only fish and increase my healthy carbs fruit and veggies I feel amazing…Don’t take the skin off the potatoes

  • Baking, boiling (for mashed) or roasting are the best ways to prepare. If roasting potatoes, try a small spray of olive oil with a little garlic powder and lots of oregano, basil and rosemary. You should NEVER fry potatoes or overload your baked potatoes with toppings. That’s a big No-No.

  • Yessssss. I’m weary when everyone says “eat the rainbow” everyday. Ummmmm, no. That’s a lot of work and it’s friggin expensive BUT I can do potato and a veg! Thanks for this!

  • 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?:-)

  • i find boiled potatoes less satiating than barley bites with 13% fiber, if my stomach has problems and i want to take some carb calories they can be gentle to my stomach!

  • Its not that hard to boild some potatoes and popping them in the fridge and grabbin one potato when u want one and adding some toppings or adding to a bowl..so yea i got time for it ��

  • 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!

  • @ChristopherWalker… I find your channel interesting. Thank you for your content. However what about the lectins that reside inside of the potatoes that lead to gut inflammation and leaky gut issues. Can’t eating too many night shades impact the gut micro-biom in a negative way and also prevent the absorption of other key nutrients? They’ve been called in some circles “Anti-Nutrients” I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. ps. I’m not crapping on potatoes. I love potatoes.. I’m looking for a good reason to add them back into my diet more.. I just need to get past the lectin issue that is looming over the heads of these root foods… Thoughts?

  • The main point of Potato diet is to have it without anything (especially dairy). Plus potato peel is super important for nutrients, so keep it on please:)

  • They are as healthy as sugar because starch is made from sugar, your body breaks down starch into sugar. There are about the same amount of sugar molecules in one gram of starch as one gram of sugar. It’s as if he is saying a tonne of bricks is heavier than a tonne of feathers.

  • 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!

  • REALLY glad to hear the nutritional breakdown, because I’ve been avoiding white potatoes while trying to shave off pounds.
    Good to know that white potatoes aren’t “bad.”

  • is it bad if i eat 2 baked potatoes a day?
    i put some olive oil on top of them and some black pepper then bake them for about 50 minutes

  • Hey Shaun, what do you consider a high intensity excersicer? I work out 4 days a week, 45-60 minutes on heavy weight training (alternating body parts every time along with using myself to up the weight) along with 30 minutes of cardio (elliptical at a moderately high rate but not so high I get out of breathe). I am 6’1″ and 183lbs with decent muscle tone.

  • i eat potato every day i just bake them and add a little salt, the only time it’s unhealthy is when its fried with unnecessary fats

  • Check out Potato Strong on youtube. He’s sedentary and lost a bunch of weight eating mostly potatoes. Not only athletes need carbs

  • is it bad if i eat 2 baked potatoes a day?
    i put some olive oil on top of them and some black pepper then bake them for about 50 minutes

  • 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.

  • i eat potato every day i just bake them and add a little salt, the only time it’s unhealthy is when its fried with unnecessary fats

  • Here we are talking about white potatoes or white unprocessed starches. “Unprocessed starches” also include beans and vegetables like squash, and corn. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as unprocessed white rice. Both brown rice and quinoa still has many carbs vs. non-starchy vegetables, so modest or sparing portions are still in effect. That is all there is to it, folks, don’t make it more complicated than it is.

  • Can you make a video about food combinations? Because I supposed to gain weight, but it’s pretty hard If you have to be aware of the food combinations and are sensitive to gluten and other things..

  • Hi. I’m curious to try this only potato diet but not sure if it matters what kind of potato I eat yellow, Idaho, russet, etc. or does it not matter? So are the only rules not to use butter and oil and no salt and only bake and boil and not use microwave? Thanks!

  • Since I’ve stop eating meat only fish and increase my healthy carbs fruit and veggies I feel amazing…Don’t take the skin off the potatoes

  • Christopher, tell us about nutrients in cooked potato. Vit c gets damaged by cooking. Tell us what you know about water cooking and frying and nutrients. Thanks

  • Potatoes are shit. Turns to sugar straight away, and feed yeast, bacteria and viruses. Probably causes cancer. Your pseudoscience is shit

  • Great presentation. Obviously clowns out there exaggerated this aspect. One thing about cooking it is it can make the texture better at times. Also always good to have the spuds and yams prepared in advance and then can just do air fryer to heat them up. But yes great point!

  • REALLY glad to hear the nutritional breakdown, because I’ve been avoiding white potatoes while trying to shave off pounds.
    Good to know that white potatoes aren’t “bad.”

  • You are missing one important detail raw potatoes are all resistant starch. That’s about 80% resistant starch (not 2-3%). If they are dried down with harsh conditions, a lot of the resistant starch can be lost or destroyed, but it is possible to dry them down carefully and preserve 70% of the resistant starch (MSPrebiotic sells this). Bob’s Red Mill potato starch is dried more harshly and does not specify or report the resistant starch content of their ingredient. When I have tested it, it is usually between 50-60% resistant starch. If you were to cook either of these, the resistant starch content would fall to about 3-5% Cooling them increases it modestly to about 5-6%. See http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.foodchem.2016.03.120.

    I agree with you completely that it is not worth eating cooked and cooled starchy foods to get the modest amount of resistant starch. But, I completely disagree with you about raw potato starch, which is an excellent supplement and a great way to add resistant starch into the diet without adding lots of high glycemic carbs. But, you can get the maximum benefits if you choose the highest quality supplement that guarantees the most resistant starch.

    Also, calorie reduction is the least of resistant starch’s benefits. When resistant starch is consumed by the probiotic bacteria in the gut, they produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and other metabolites. One of the SCFAs, butyrate, actively feeds the colon cells (one of the few cells in the body that does not get its food from the blood). This process is called fermentation. If colon cells do not get butyrate, they shrink and get diseased, creating a leaky gut. If you feed them resistant starch in the presence of probiotic bacteria, they get fat and happy again, healing a leaky gut. Also, this fermentation changes the expression of >200 genes in the large intestine, which control insulin sensitivity, satiety, lipid oxidation, gut motility and many other aspects of metabolism. The calorie control is not even worth mentioning in the face of all of these fermentation-related benefits of resistant starch. See http://www.ResistantStarchResearch.com for more in-depth explanations of these benefits.

  • 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.

  • My friend: i ugly like a potato��
    Me:no you dont
    My friend: really?
    Me:potato is beautiful, potato is healty for human, potato can make many food.

  • 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

  • Thank you so much for watching today’s episode. If you like these food comparison videos, you’ll love our series called Food Wars. Here’s a link to the full playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2C1DE0CA65CBCCD2

  • I was on that keto diet for 4 weeks I started to feel a huge energy drop and not feeling strong enough to even do 1 push up so I took the keto diet and I placed it in the bin.. I am adding boiled patatoes now and Im pretty sure I will keep losing weight but without having this huge energy drop this time that will lead me on the long run to just all my muscles im.pretty sure

  • IMPOSSIBLE!!!

    40 Pounds?? After A Year? AND A HALF?? AND YOU EAT TONS OF POTATOES?? ONLY 40?? Dude…I have been eating only potatoes NO SWEET POTAOES ( Because They Are Not Really Potaoes) since January 1st, 2020 AND I HAVE ALREADY LOST 30 Pounds almost.

  • 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?

  • IMPOSSIBLE!!!

    40 Pounds?? After A Year? AND A HALF?? AND YOU EAT TONS OF POTATOES?? ONLY 40?? Dude…I have been eating only potatoes NO SWEET POTAOES ( Because They Are Not Really Potaoes) since January 1st, 2020 AND I HAVE ALREADY LOST 30 Pounds almost.

  • Love the video, potatoes are awsome, so tired of ppl putting this veggie down, I just like them plain. Thankyou for your video, have a great day!��

  • Can you make a video about food combinations? Because I supposed to gain weight, but it’s pretty hard If you have to be aware of the food combinations and are sensitive to gluten and other things..

  • 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

  • Christopher, tell us about nutrients in cooked potato. Vit c gets damaged by cooking. Tell us what you know about water cooking and frying and nutrients. Thanks

  • I like you health advice. Your one of the few health gurus that make sense. Eliminating the polyunsaturated fats from my diet healed my fatty liver disease.

  • Don’t resistant starch increase endotoxin production? And when consuming starch, isn’t it better to cook it down to nearly pure sugar since large starch molecules can pass through the intestinal wall through persorption and can damage the cells?

  • I thought that you have to leave them in the fridge over night to get the resistance starch to work…  are you saying just to cook and eat the potato?????? please update.. confused.

  • 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:)

  • A small comment, you shouldn’t eat anything with potato, but you included yogurt! and a little salt is allowed, why you wrote not allowed. I think this is a modified potato diet:)

  • Honestly when it comes to resistant starch and potatoes it’s not worth all the fucking around (sooooo much fucking around). I prefer to use Green Banana Flour or raw oats (raw oats are super excellent sources of RS) in my smoothies. Cooling your potatoes… bugger that. P.S god I love potatoes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Calories basically don’t matter or in other words thermodynamics. Resistant starch (a starch that needs to be processed by the microbiome not our enzymes hense resistant to our “direct” digestive measures) is good for “feeding” the microbiome or your good bacteria.

    I mentioned thermodynamics because the two big diet paradigms which are going to be low fat high starch and ketogenics which is high-fat moderate protein low carbs will cause the body to need more or less calories. Fats (good saturated and omega 3 fats) tend to be a more efficient burn in the mitochondria in all of our cells and so you actually need less calories when you are eating a fat based diet.

    You can’t stay that way however forever because carb cycling does help to shuttle more nutrition into the cells when it creates a higher insulin response.

    So in my opinion and it’s very well substantiated it is good to come out of a ketogenic state and cycle the carbs and it would be good to have resistant starches to feed are gut microbiome Flora at the same feeding.

    I’m interested to know a little bit more about this potato diet but if it doesn’t contain enough fats you might have some have a hard time getting fat soluble vitamins and minerals.

  • I have currently been on a potatoe only (no yogurt no nothin but taters) diet for 5 days now and I’ve lost 6.6 lbs. But I have to say it’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’m a foodie so it’s been tough. Anyone looking for a challenge should DEFINITELY try this!

  • I say Potato… You say Potato…,we all have to find what works best for us. If what you are doing works for you and any change would throw you out of whack, then by all means stick to it. Glad I have helped you with other areas of your goals! Keep it up!

  • The informations your coming out with its getting me Shocked �� I done more Research about your infos and they all make sense!!! I HAD TO SUBSCRIBE!!!! THERE ARE SO MANY LIES I’VE BEEN TAUGHT.

  • “Dupe oauă “trec pe cartofi… am slabit 4 kg in 4 zile de regim cu oua. Chiar azi mi-am facut curat în dulap si sunt foarte fericită că îmi pot purta hainele de acum 2 ani… mai am 3 zile cu ouă și apre trec pe cartofi. Asta pot mânca la muncă fără să mă chestioneze NIMENI. Pot folosi iaurt vegetal?

  • Potatoes are shit. Turns to sugar straight away, and feed yeast, bacteria and viruses. Probably causes cancer. Your pseudoscience is shit

  • “Not every meal has to be super exciting.” YESSS! Eat to live! Don’t live to eat. It’s an uncomfortable thing to grasp. Western culture has made food so much about pleasure that we’ve sacrificed our health. We’ve got to have a better relationship with the purpose of food.

  • The Video has a little bit of false information. A raw Potato has around 75% of RS2 (a group of restistant starch), a hot cooked one has only about 5% left. The cooked and then cooled one has about 10% again. This is from a german study (i am german) and the data is out of a book. So i can’t put the quote/link/source in here.

    But if you do not eat the potatos raw.. i guess it is the same conclusion.

    I am interested in the possible effects of “potato starch powder”, it is a bit like raw resistant starch. But again there are’nt that many studys.

  • I read a lot of good opinions on the internet about how exactly Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google) can assist you lost a lot of weight. Has any one tested out this popular weight loss system?

  • Thanks for that Chelsea Mae, I enjoy sweet potatoes, also broccoli & don’t mind it raw. They are a great combination. Your daughters are so adorable and remind me of my granddaughters. You live in a beautiful scenic area too. Looking forward to watching your other videos as well as Hannah’s and Kiki’s too (found you and Hannah through Kiki, who is such an inspiration) You are a great trio xxx

  • Guys, build muscle doesn’t need to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Search a diet plan known as Custokebon Secrets. Seriously, that diet plan has transformed my entire life. I probably should not even be mentioning it cause I do not want a bunch of other folks out there running the same “game” but whatever, I’m in a great mood today so I’ll share the wealth haha.

  • i find boiled potatoes less satiating than barley bites with 13% fiber, if my stomach has problems and i want to take some carb calories they can be gentle to my stomach!

  • who told you about the 10% increase? i´ve read a study which says the resistant starch in cooled potatoes was almost tripled

  • 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

  • help me i dont care about the video i want a one on one for real because i lost my husband i have a son i need some help to start back eating this is for my son not for me because i do want to pass on for real i am tired off all the pills

  • Check out Potato Strong on youtube. He’s sedentary and lost a bunch of weight eating mostly potatoes. Not only athletes need carbs

  • 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.

  • Somebody needs to tell Dr Oz then. He had a program TODAY on why we spiff cool our carbs, although he stated you still want to stay away from it!

  • You seem to answer a good majority of the questions here so i feel it could be productive to ask this, I eat Oatmeal, White potatoes and Wheat Bread as well as spinach for my carbs daily majority of my carbs come from the white potatoes though is that ok? i workout daily of course 

  • The informations your coming out with its getting me Shocked �� I done more Research about your infos and they all make sense!!! I HAD TO SUBSCRIBE!!!! THERE ARE SO MANY LIES I’VE BEEN TAUGHT.

  • Is there an ideal pairing with a legume or? such that the combination of the protein in potatoes creates a complete protein the way beans and rice do?

  • Interesting So I guess it depends on what nurtrients you are looking for and the preparation. I always liked the flavor of sweet potatos better but I won’t object to a white one either. Does microwaving have the same effect as baking a potato?

  • 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.

  • I think you would love the KMart air fryer for baking potatoes… super quick, less electricity and they come out lovely and crispy. No, I don’t work for KMart ��

  • I am confusedr u saying store potatoes in the fridgeor r u saying that after cooking put in fridge and it will then not have as much starch. I have heard the best wake to cook potatoes for eight loss is to boil and a lot of the starch goes into the water that u drain off!???

  • Thank you so much for this video bro. I been scared of carbs at first until my body bout went into shock and I’ve learned how important carbs are. Now I’ve been wondering if potatoes were good or bad. This helps so much. Definitely a thumbs up from me.

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

  • I thought that you have to leave them in the fridge over night to get the resistance starch to work…  are you saying just to cook and eat the potato?????? please update.. confused.

  • 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 –

  • 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!

  • Haha….it’s confusing OFF of Youtube too.:) Ultimately, it comes down to what plan gets you results AND what you can stick to for the long-term. Nuts are “OK”, but only when treated more like a condiment and not a food source on its own. We actually have a Youtube video on eating nuts….of course…haha.

  • It’s true they say there is a correlation between obesity and not eating breakfast but yet they say intermittent fasting works. Which it does cause I do this. So it’s confusing. Honestly I am finding everyone’s bodies are different and different things work for different people. But it really is crazy how they say things that are so opposite:

  • THE VEGAN TRIFECTA! I agree strongly that not every meal has to be exciting or gourmet. Let me start by saying that I am not vegan, however I am happy to incorporate ideas from Hannah, Kiki & now you. I’m affectionately calling you my Vegan Trifecta because, I’m obtaining great wisdom about food, losing weight, recipes and nutrition from the 3 of you ladies. I started by watching Hannah over the last couple of years, then less than a month or so ago I learned about Kiki who apparently has been inspired by Hannah. This morning I was watching Kiki who mentioned you in her eat your veggies challenge, so now I have at my disposal THE VEGAN TRIFECTA, lol. I have always loved my veggies, thank God, so by adopting more vegan meals in my diet, I not only find it doable, but also ENJOYABLE. Thank you for your contribution. I will gladly accept the challenge!

  • 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

  • Seeing you and your kids fighting the aliens reminded me of the series
    ‘Stranger Things’ which I’m watching these days! I find it very thrilling even if I usually don’t watch horror movies. 😉
    I can relate to you eating plain food. I’m also satisfied with some romaine hearts and boiled potatoes. It’s my go-to lunch because I can eat it also while riding my bike when I go to an appointment. I wrap them in some kitchen paper towel so that they look like sandwiches.:)

  • 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 just need to point out that I have done a blood sugar test eating both fresh cooked and cooled down potatoes. The cooled down potatoes reduced blood sugar rise by such a great deal that it is definitely worth eating cooled down potatoes over fresh.

  • 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.

  • Came across you when recommended by Plantiful Kiki and High Carb Hannah, have been binge watching over weekend, love you channel joy to watch ��

  • Very helpful video:) apparently cooling and reheating potatoes brings their carbohydrate content down 85 percent? It seems a bit much!

  • I’m so excited I found your channel!!!! Love how you just share real life. My body has been whack after having a twin pregnancy (that sadly ended in loss) and I haven’t been feeling good in my body since. That was 3 years ago. After watching high carb Hannah for some time I’ve been thinking of just trying this whole veg + starch thing. And then she linked to you and you’ve had pregnancies so I just feel like you get it more. And omg your kids accents are EVERYTHING ������ Looking forward to checking our your podcast & IG!!

  • Hi spud, can i cook it with extra virgin coconut oil? Anything wrong if i baked the potatoes and freeze them in advance for subsequent reheat in the microwave as i prefer to mealprep for the whole week? Lastly can i do cardio or even HIIT while on potato diet? �� Kindly advise. Many thx

  • Generally speaking, consume your potatoes in your post-workout meal on resistance training days. Keep lower carb on your cardio days. Thanks for the feedback!:)

  • 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.

  • I adore your interactions with your family! Would you be willing to share the sweet potato mousse recipe you used? It looks lovely!

  • Potatoes and broccoli sound like a great combination that I will have to try. Your girls are adorable loved the dance party! I used to do that with my daughters, too! (They are now 38 and 36!) BTW, I LOVE your podcast!!!

  • Agreed, cant do slightly raw broccoli, but LOVE it cooked. Haha “real vegan” made me laugh. And yes sweet potato is life, they truly don’t need any toppings �� so great to see you posting again

    I recommend adding a date instead of the stevia to the sweet potato mousse, its delicious and adds to the “gooey” yummy texture xxx

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love you too so fun especially the walk with your daughters and the dancing I thought was incredible. I love it because you’re so real and you’re honest and you’re just a lot of fun as well as inspiring so thank you from Brooklyn New York USA!!!! 40 + pounds Weight loss age 58 whole food plant-based oil free
