Sweet potatoes!

  1. Hello ladies,

    I like sweet potatoes, but I was wondering if sweet potatoes could make you actually gain weight/gain fat? I know it's good carbs, but could good carbs make you gain weight, too? Is there a certain amount limit that one can eat per day?

    Thank you!
     
  2. Sweet potatoes are a great source of healthy carbohydrates. I "steam" mine in the microwave, split it down the middle, and add a bit of Splenda and cinnamon. Yum :drool:

    However, too much of anything will make you gain weight. It doesn't matter if it's sweet potatoes, egg whites or Big Macs - if you are eating more calories then you are burning throughout the day, you will gain weight.

  4. Aww, thanks :shame: LOL I think everything I know has been the source of trial and error. I've either tried it and it works, or tried it and it totally backfires :p
