I heard that potatoes raise blood sugar more than sugar. Is this true? I've always thought potatoes were evil, why are so many paleos' enjoying them?

We were offered the Isagenix program as a healthy way of weight loss.  We have been enjoying a friendly paleo lifestyle and we are just curious about the comparison.

Wondering what would be a good diet to eat for the week or so before a colonoscopy. Must do a water fast the day before, and prefer not to starve. Would a ketosis diet be best? Or another type of diet? Thanks!

Most greens freeze reasonably well. Spinach may be one of the least suitable due to the meatiness of is leaves. If you have freezer space it is worth buying at peak, stuff into large ziploc bags, and freeze. I freeze celery greens, daikon greens,... (more)

The previously cooked potatoes also have more resistant starch, so that's another possible variable.  Solanine levels vary by plant variety and also by how much peel is removed.  If the French Fries are cooked in omega 6 oils, you are... (more)
