Everybody keeps saying it's good for post-workout. But what about pre-workout? I've recently been eating a sweet potato pre-workout and a can of sardines post-workout.

I've read you can make them in to something called "resistant starch" by putting them in the fridge.

Have also read you can reduce the insulin effects by eating them with fat, but also read the sweet potato *raises* insulin then the fat you eat with it goes in to fat cells.
I eat them chipped and deep fried in tallow, same as with white potatoes. I won't go into whether they speed or slow fat loss, as really I have no idea myself.
