I've got my friend interested in going Primal, but he (of course!) doesn't think he will be able to live without eating grains because he is a runner. He is fit, but doesn't have much muscle definition and has gotten a little flabby this summer, which is ironic since he follows a CW diet . He has run a few marathons last year, and he enjoys running long distances, however, his knees often ache and he really doesn't do any strength training. He thinks a great post run food is a PB&J on wheat washed down with a big ole glass of chocolate cow's milk. I've told him that he would need to cut back on the running and replace it with strength training, but would it be ok to just tell him he can eat like 1 potato a day? He says he doesn't like sweet potatoes, but I think he has just never had them prepared in a good way. How could he keep his carb count in the 75g to 150g range if he is not a big fan of fruits and veggies?

Are potatoes 'bad'?
