Potatoes or meat?

Postby chasemymind » Tue May 19, 2009 12:11 am

Okie dokie. This is going to sound a tad weird, but im oftern stuck in these situations.
So say you had, 1/4 - 1/3 a plate of salad or steamed vegs and then either a 1/4 plate of potato or 1/4 plate of meat. Is it better to have more meat or more potatoes?

More potatoes = extra carbs
but more meat may be more calories? :?

Definitely meat. Potatoes are full of starch and simple sugars and therefore they are not that good for you.
Lean meat, however, is full of protein which your body needs to operate at optimum health. Also protein keeps you fuller for longer which is fantastic when trying to lose weight.
