Potatoes: Man’s Best Friend (Not Worst Enemy!), is an article from UC Davis Integrated Medicine that grabbed my attention. Potatoes have been beaten and battered in the press and by countless diet ‘gurus’ who never tire of saying that potatoes are really bad for you. People, IT’S NOT THE POTATO! It’s the butter, cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, animal fat gravy and the grease from frying them up that will kill you.
Hypnosis for weight loss can help you to end your desires for the foods that make you fat and sick and create healthy desires for the foods that make you slender and healthy.
Potatoes: Man’s Best Friend (Not Worst Enemy!)
Introducing the Whole, Delicious and Nutritious Potato
Despite the negative hype, the potato is actually a low-calorie whole food brimming with healthy vitamins, minerals and fiber. The ‘humble’ potato is:
- Low in calories: (about 168 calories) and fat (0.2 grams of fat)
- Loaded with potassium: One large spud potato (complete with skin) contains 1600 milligrams of potassium, almost 45% of the daily recommended amount and 4 times the potassium count of a banana.
- Packed with fiber: If you eat the skin, a large potato contains 8 grams of dietary fiber or a third (32%) of what you need in a day.
- Rich in Vitamin C: The skin of the potato alone contains 29 milligrams of Vitamin C, nearly 50% your daily recommended amount.
- Jam-packed with B6: A single large potato contains 55% of your daily requirement of B6, a vitamin which is crucial for your cardiovascular, digestive, immune, muscular and nervous systems.
I love potatoes! My favorite potato meal is to partially steam red, purple and fingerling potatoes and then finish cooking them on the grill with onions. OMG! (They are good as a cold snack the next day too.) Another way that I have learned to prepare potatoes is to hand mash them with a fork and mix in avocado. Green mashed potatoes is one of our favorite side dishes to serve to guests. And of course there is Mexican Potato Salad, a summer favorite. Potatoes are a perfect food so make them your BFF. Hypnosis for weight loss can you to choose perfect foods.
