potatoes

can someone tell me if im fooling myself into thinking that this is a healty addition to a meal...obviously there are healthier things to have but i like a bit of variation

potato finely sliced and oven baked...like chips really

i have added a bit of virgin olive oil to them and also something like a cajun spice sometimes

    Whole diet dictates, but IMO not bad,

    Obviously depends on if your bulking/cutting etc...

    perfectly fine IMO. Sweet potato are the dogs danglies though. If youre cutting nothing wrong with them PPWO as a carb source or if bulking them with whatever meal you like really except PWO . You could even use them as breakfast carbs if you want to make egg and oven chips perfectly acceptable as long as itll fit into your diet

    ill post it up but please dont critisize as thats just demoralising - i dont tend to stick to a routine diet and i just make it up as i go along but try and keep away from the really bad stuff

    7.45 innocent fruit smoothie

    10.15 cereal and milk (as biiger portion as the bowl will take)

    i then snack on fruit throughout the day

    1.00 sometimes i go for a run during lunch

    1.40 yoghurt and fruit, sometimes some chicken sandwiches and sometimes a full dinner, nothing too healthy usually a roast dinner, lasagne and chips, sausage beans and chips lol

    5.00 gym for either cardio or weights followed by a protein shake

    8.00 - absolutely anything, homemade curry, chicken baguette, steak, cottage pie

    Sorry mate, but its really poor, you need to get some good protein in throughout the day....

    So same time as cereal, eggs, 12 oclock ish get a sandwich or somthing,

    its a touch laclustre if you ask me mate

    guess its the fact that people associate carbs with bad bad things lol

    and the fact that potatoes make chips and chips are bad

    New Pots are a decent alternative to Sweet Potato

    Humans have been eating potatoes for over 700 years, I think they just might be ok.
