    Question Potatoes?

    Hey everybody!
    What do you think about potatoes... are they bad for you when trying to stay lean and fit?
    When is the best time to eat them?

    I don't eat them when I'm cutting. Yams are a lot better. If you do eat the potatoes then eat them earlier like around lunch.

    I agree, yams are a better choice. But when to eat them all depends on your activity schedule. Yes earlier in the day is basic formula, but post workout meal is a good time to get some carbs in as well.

    They are a clean source but the GI level is a lot higher than yams. I know for myself I have to watch where my carbs are coming from.
