Hi there, I am on day 4 and have been eating a little bit of white potatoes. I'm just wondering how are they okay, when I have read so many different books saying that they're not a good source of food. I am pre-diabetic, and my doctor had said to avoid them. Thanks!

You don't have to eat them but for most people who don't have an ongoing health condition, there's nothing wrong with potatoes.  We recommend a fist sized serving once a day of starchy carbs... potato, sweet potato, squash, beets, rutabaga etc...
