Potatoes are more nutrient dense than sweets, and the two are more or less equal as far as fiber, resistant starch, and protein content go. It doesn't stand to reason that they'd be inherently more fattening.
And I don't see why people stress out over a weight fluctuation of 5 lbs. My weight will swing almost 15 lbs in either direction when I alternate low & high carb.
