Philip, “Are potatoes good for us?”

Yesterday I was asked, “Are potatoes good for us?”

  • Half the people I know say “No, don’t eat potatoes.”
  • Half the people I know would agree with Kathleen DesMaisons who wrote the book, ‘Potatoes Not Prozac’ which is a good read if you have any kind of mood disorder.

After a long discussion about potatoes I wrote…

*** EAT REAL FOOD ***

What can we add to the above simple message that is also easy to understand – very simple black and white?

How about; classify each person as metabolically healthy or unhealthy based on the 5 tests described on the PHC ‘Real Food Lifestyle ‘booklet’’.

  • If healthy continue to EAT REAL FOOD.
  • If unhealthy EAT REAL FOOD while cutting out the foods that are known to delay recovery.

You asked about potatoes and sweet potatoes. These tend to delay recovery because the sugars go into the blood too quickly for unhealthy people.

After regaining health, organic potatoes can be a useful source of energy.

— STOP — END — FINISH — THAT IS ALL I AM SAYING ABOUT POTATOES —

Although if you type ‘potatoes’ into the search bar at top right, above the menu you’ll find I have previously mentioned potatoes in at least 4 other articles. Enjoy!
