Amanda9822 Posted January 14, 2013 Share Posted January 14, 2013 I'm on Day 13 of my first Whole 30... definitely feel a change in my mind's response to food and my desire for sweets. It's miraculous, and I look forward to the rest of my life continuing this way! My question has to do with white potatoes. I know that ISWF and on this website, white potatoes are left out of the mix because they promote unhealthy habits. Are they referring to: if you eat white potatoes as french fries, or pile your baked potato with sour cream and butter, or make your mashed potatoes with cheese and butter and milk? I've just been really curious about this because i always thought I loved sweet potatoes and that it would be no problem to eat a bunch. I have had sweet potatoes maybe four or five times (not overdone it), and I honestly feel like I couldn't gag/choke down another sweet potato. I don't think I'm getting enough starchy veggies, and I can't understand what the deal with while potatoes are. They are way milder, and I think would go down easier at this point. I really can't stand how sweet the sweet potatoes taste (by themselves, in salmon cakes, in soup or stew)- maybe it's because I'm not eating sugar? I feel the same with butternut squash. To sweet and gagalicious to me. Thanks! Amanda Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
