If you cook/cool/reheat white potatoes does the resistant starch stay intact? Does it matter how you reheat them? Oven/fry/microwave? Cheers

I'd say no, so long as the mentioned foods aren't causing you any health issues. If training's your main focus then the starch is quite important. Looks like what you're eating is basically The Perfect Health Diet (google it), which is pretty... (more)

Rice isn't actually a paleo approved grain. White rice in particular has a higher GI level as well. If you wanted to have a rice I would recommend brown rice otherwise stick to paleo approved starches as in pumpkin kumura etc

Why does it matter? the nutrient profile of the three types of sweet potatoes that you mentioned is moot. They all provide about the same nutrients. Eat them, they taste good and are good for you!

Likely the same phenomenon that you see in hard-boiled eggs. Iron + sulfur = green iron sulfide. Egg whites are sulfur rich, there's likely enough iron in the potatoes to react with it.
