This morning while having my green plantain porridge I decided to browse through some of the blog posts on bloggers.com. I came across a post that reads “Boiled potatoes help you lose weight.” Instantly, I was in shock at the fact that one thought that boiled potatoes, or potatoes could help one lose weight. Then I thought to myself ” why do I believe that potatoes cause weight gain?.” The answer is: it is due to the opinions of other people that I drew my conclusion. I never took the time to do my own research and formulate my own conclusions.
So, I hurried to my computer and began my research. After reading multiple sources I discovered the truth about potatoes. Potatoes are actually very good for you as they are rich in many vitamins and minerals. Also, potatoes do not contribute to weight gain. Rather, the things we choose to add to them contribute to weight gain. The website below says it all. Check it out, but keep in mind that anything that we overindulge in, even if it is good for us, can become very bad for our health.
