This is what my friend thinks, NOT me. We were texting today and here's how the conversation goes:
Me: Sweet potatoes are the bomb!
Me: Eh.?! You've lost your mind! lol
Him: I don't really care for sweet potatoes
Me: Well they don't care for you!
Me: Dont be jealous, they are now a staple of my diet
Him: Haha, so much for getting shredded. lol
Me: And what makes you think that?
Him: Potatoes ain't good for ya. Only extra garbage
Me: Oh, ok...
Him: Oh. I'm wrong?
Me: No comment lol
Him: Ok, explain to me why doctors are wrong and google is right...lol
Me: What doctor told you sweet potatoes are bad for u? I suppose I could see an argument for white potatoes...
Him: Any doctor will agree that there is no reason for a human to need to eat a potato. They don't give you anything that can't be found in other foods with less/no starch.
Him: And they're basically all carbs. My cousin's diet is a perfect example... All he eats is meat and veggies. He doesn't eat anything with a significant amount of carbs like bread, potatoes, etc... And his diet works really well. Gives him everything he needs to go to work and do a hardcore workout for an hour a day. It's an expensive diet tho, hard to fill up without carbs.
I don't know how to reply to this, without going off on him. I'd like you're input please!
