    Too Much Sweet Potato?

    I'm bulking up and have been for the last couple of months and have been eating HEAPS of sweet potato. Aside from oats, dextrose, and fruits, all my carb sources have been sweet potato. It's cheap and tasty damnit.

    Is there such thing as too much sweet potato? I'm talking about 4-5 being eaten a day. Hey it's not a bulking diet for nothing. I prefer to eat it rather than rice or bread.

    damn...its good and eat about 1-2 at the most a day, but i don't know if i could down 4-5 a day like you are...i think its has a ridiculously high amount of vitamin A, which is stored in your body, i think.

    Yeah but in trying to eat enough carbs, I don't like rice.... too long to cook, blah blah blah, oats are good as well, but I prefer sweet potato. You mentioned vitamin A.... what physiological problems can occur if I eat too much vitamin A?

    One baked sweet potato (3 1/2 ounce serving) provides over 8,800 IU of vitamin A or about twice the recommended daily allowance

    Acute toxicity occurs within a few hours or days after a very large intake as a result of accidental over-ingestion or inappropriate therapy. The estimated toxic dose is about 25,000 IU/kg.
    Chronic toxicity appears after ingestion of 25,000 IU or more daily for prolonged periods of time.

    one large sweet potato has 700% the recommended daily value of vitamin A...once you go over 3 a day, you have probably saturated your body's ability to store vitamin A over a short time and it can even show up as an orange tint on your skin...ive read that too much vitamin a can lead to a higher risk of fracture because it is linked to bone density.

    hope that helps.

    keep in mind that vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin. so how much is really getting absorbed? id say eat all the sweet taters you want. they are my carb source of choice too. maybe try looking for the sweet potatoes with the yellow flesh as oppose to the red. im sure it has much less beta caratene if toxicity is worrying you.

    What does it mean that it is a "fat soluble" vitamin? And what's beta carentene toxicity all about?
