sweet potato, however, is low GI and very good for you. you can have 2 small ones or a large one as a carb portion. don't microwave them, and eat them with the skin.
into the humble Sweet Potato!
dhm is right - there are no magic foods. What will help you lose weight is to take in fewer calories than you burn. Very simple.
boil / bake them.
how long do you leave it baked in the oven for and what do u set the temp on?
I peel mine, cut them into chunks and bake for 20 minutes in a roasting pan.
mash sweet potato w cinamon ^^
its the best hehee
Unlike dhm1983 post ... the skin of a sweet potato has the most nutrients and is the healthiest part of a potato . as far as microwaving them go for it ! you don't lose enough nutrients to worry about cooking anything does the same thing boiling baking or whatever you would have to eat it raw to get all the nutritional value and why sacrifice taste as long as your eating healthy !
Unlike dhm1983 post ... and overall diet of healthy foods gives you more energy to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a healther lifestyle leads to a slimmer you I am sure you have heard this before . so yes eating the wright foods does help you to lose weight .
If you starve yourself it does not help you lose weight properly so you in fact MUST EAT in order to lose weight. But does anyone know if it is bad for you to microwave sweet potatoes once you have already boiled it? I've boil it, keep the leftovers in the freezer, and then microwave it.
