Sweet Potatoes daily ok?


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I have UC as well as Adrenal Fatigue.

I'm on day 9 of my first whole 30 with my main goal being to control my UC and get my adrenals going again.

I love vegetables but the majority, cooked or not, cause stomach distress, with the exception of potatoes.

Can I get some opinions on what a good balance of these vegetables looks like in a day? Would a serving of sweet potatoes at M1 and M3 daily be too much?

Thanks for your feedback

Our minimum recommendation is for a fist sized serving of starchy veg daily.

As to whether that is too much, or not enough for will depend on what stage your Adrenal fatigue is at...

I'm not a medical expert but my understanding is that if it's stage 3 then more than that would be fine. If it's stage 1 or 2 though you don't want to be spiking your blood sugars (in the same way that diabetics need to be careful of their carb intake) and so twice a day would be too much...

Do you have a confirmed diagnosis?
