22twelve Posted May 28, 2015 Share Posted May 28, 2015 Hi all! I know that the rules have been changed and white potatoes are now allowed on the Whole30. However, I don't really know if I can trust them and if it's really a good idea to include them in my diet at this stage. Why were they first eliminated from and then reintroduced into the program? I remember reading something about it, but have been searching all over and can't find the page or website again. I might have been brainwashed into thinking they're bad. Too many calories, too many carbs, not appreciated in nearly all the diets I have tried so far, so I'm a bit hesitant now to eat them while it's all going so well and I'm feeling great. But I'm really struggling with eating enough breakfast because the thought of veggies in the morning puts me off food altogether, and including a portion of roast potatoes to go with the protein of eggs and the fat of bulletproof coffee would go a long way! Somehow sweet potatoes just don't do it for me. Yet. I'm hoping you'll share some of your stories with me - what are your experiences with white potatoes? Did you find them to negatively impact weight loss, concentration, or cravings? How much of them are you actually eating, and when? Should I give it a try, or might it be better to wait until reintroduction, even if it's just for peace of mind? Thanks for your help! Love this forum!
