    as the title says, are parsnips ok for fat loss? i recently saw that they have a high GI rating so i'm a little cautious right now. any stories of people still losing fat while eating these delicious cousins of the carrot?

    any info would be helpful!

    Sure, but best after a strenuous workout like "lift heavy things"

    Ignore GI level. It the grand scheme of things, it has little to do with fat loss.

    How do you eat them. If you fry them, you might caramelize the sugar and it would be equivalent to oven-roasting yams. But parsnips aren't really high glycemic. The issue is really sugar/fructose ... though in small/moderate doses ... compared to safe starches like yams/sweet potatoes, which do not have much sugar, despite the sweet taste when they're caramelized. If sugar is your issue, I would see if I can handle turnips. If not, then no parsnips.

    Peel, steam, and mash with butter, a little black pepper, and some lime juice. Trust me.

    The trick is keeping it to once a week.
