    Is Sweet Potato every day bad?

    Shop Now
    Hi all,

    I'm currently including 1 Sweet Potato at breakfast (grated and fried in Coconut oil) every day.

    Once or twice a week I will also make some Sweet Potatoes chips to cook in the oven to go with a Steak.

    I'm only concerned as this has developed into a bit of a routine...just want to make sure its not a bit OTT with the Sweet Potatoes?

    Thanks in advance...
    100% Primal if it wasn't for beer and wine...

    If you're in doubt, just stop it for one week or 2 and resume

    If you feel good and look good there is no reason to stop. I eat certain types of food every day.
    ------
    HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

    It's pretty good for you, just do go about eating pounds of it and you'd be fine.

    It's apparently anti-inflammatory, which is a bonus.

    Answer: Unless you are allergic to them, an emphatic no. Eat away.

    It's not good for me because sweet potato (and turnips) make me tired and sluggish. But if you're not feeling ill effects, it's probably just fine for you.

    It's sugar -- so should probably take into consideration if the person has high blood sugar, triglycerides and central obesity. Mark recommends no for people who want to lose weight, otherwise yes.

    You could literally eat sweet potato for every meal and still be healthy.

    I eat 1-2 lbs of Japanese Sweet Potatoes daily with .5 tablespoon of pastured butter on each of them. I have been doing for roughly 6 months? I need them. I don't eat any fruit or nuts so if these sugary miracles coated in butter are not the best than so be it. All I know is that they enabled me to recover super fast and help me kill it during workouts
