    When to eat potatoes.

    Shop Now
    Hello

    I am a 150 pound male in good shape and decently low body fat. However, I sort of want to put on about 10 pounds of muscle and realize that adding potatoes to my diet may be the way to go.

    Should I consume them before/after a workout or does it really matter?

    Will adding some potatoes hinder my ability to get cut if I only do it on intense workout days?

    Thank you everyone in advance.

    Eat them before and after your workouts. The starch will help provide energy to complete your workouts, and afterward, it'll help you recover. Eat as many as you'd like, but be sure to adjust your fat and protein intake accordingly. If weight gain is your goal, be sure to eat enough food. 3,000 - 3,500 calories a day is good starting point.

    To avoid fat gain and maximize muscle gain eat them after a workout. Don't put too much butter on them, or eat very much of any fats along with them. Carbs+fats=fat gain. Eat lots of good animal protein along with them too.

    When to eat potatoes? For me only breakfast, lunch and/or dinner.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
