Hey. So my starch of choice for the past few years has been japanese sweet potatoes. I eat them a lot as a post workout and when I can't find them, and I need starch, I cheat and eat two rice cakes or a couple red or yukon gold poatoes. Horrible I know but who cares it's like 2% of my calories. I couldn't find Japanese sweets this week so I bought regular ones (organic, garnet). A couple days ago I baked it in the oven like I usually do and ate it post workout. About an hour later I felt terrible. My stomach hurt, I had a headache, and I just felt like I had eaten a large piece of hydrogenated soy oil cake or something- just felt of gross and incredibly lethargic. Again, today I did the same thing with the same effect. What is the deal? I figured since I tolerate the Jap ones so well I'd do fine with an American one- but clearly not and I should have stuck to the white carb neolithic ones. So, what's the deal? DOes anyone know why this would be? I didn't eat the skin if that matters. I really don't think this is in my head, and I'm not eating a regular sweet potato again as far as I'm concerned.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Do you know the deal is?
Thanks for your input!
