    Sweet Potatoes and weight loss

    Shop Now
    I have just started PB 2 weeks ago and the weight is falling off! Today I would like to eat a sweet loyal which I know is PB approved but was wondering if anyone has had issues with them slowing down their weightloss.

    Thanks!

    When I was trying to actually lose some weight. Yes sweet potato would slow/stop it. But I was getting pretty light and intentionally upped my carbs to stop it/put some weight back on. YMMV.

    I just thought it would be a good idea since Im uping my mileage this week. My runs have been quite slow.

    Sounds good in that case. I'm sure you could use the extra fuel.

    I thought they were good for after workouts and wouldn't stall weight loss?
    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

    You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.

    They won't necessarily have any effect on your weight loss attempts.. Sometimes it helps people lose weight .. I know shocking.

    A whole sweet potato only has about 26g of carbs and some of that is fiber.

    I've added sweet potatoes in 2 times a week and I'm still losing weight. It hasn't stalled or slowed it down. I workout more now and need the fuel.
