So, Anyone else here just love the potato? For the life of me I just cant figure it out. This I am sure will sound just stupid, but this is my problem. The potato to me is what alcohol or gambling is to others. I can cut out the alcohol at will. I can avoid every refined sugar out there if need be. Caffeine? Not an issue. I cut that out several years ago. I can eat and do eat very healthy (for the most part). I eat the green vegatables (which can be a pain as I dont like them. More of a force, but I manage. They have done my body wonders which more than makes up for the pain.). I drink water 90% of the time. Never any coke, etc. The other 10% consists of green/white tea's (also others) and a glass of milk (which I really dont even like). I used to be an avid sugaraholic several years back until I gained 30 pounds (Which I have since lost). I am shocked to this day I was able to go off it completely. But, this damn potato. I just can't say no. French Fries? You might as well just shoot me. One of my most favorite things ever. Cheese potatoes, Hash Browns, Those Potatoes in the shape of smiley faces at the supermarket, potato this and that. Anyone else just love the potato??? P.S. Excuse the stupidity of this thread, but I am serious. Not a joke. I really want to know. Also, if any health experts are out there? Is it possible to maintain the potatoes in the diet (French fries twice a week for example), and not ruin a good thing (being the body it took me two years to get), as long as I stay on target with everything else which isnt really that difficult for me at all anymore? Am I looking for an excuse to eat French Fries and other potatoes? Definately. But, I do want an honest answer. How often can one get away with it on average basically without distorting the body? And, no. Not looking for any excuse to eat it every single day. I know that's trouble already. Just moderately as to not go completely insane from an otherwise very healthy lifestyle. Sugary snacks no longer a problem at all. I ate a piece of birthday cake last summer. Boy, did I regret that. One of the worst headaches I ever had in my entire life. From now on, I guess I will just eat the candles. Less stomach irritation.
