You know thoes instant potato flakes that you just add water or milk to and maybe a pinch of salt n butter then put in the microwave or heat up on the stove, are they okay to eat? or should i stay away from that stuff?

personally, i'd stay way from them.
one - they are processed, not natural,
two - white potatoes are higher on the Gi scale than say a yam/sweet tato or red potatoes.

Veronika it all depends on your goals If possible I would stick with unprocessed whole foods first.

And those instant potatoes have an even higher GI than than regular potatoes. Not an ideal bbing food, though it would be ok to eat them as the meal you have after your postworkout shake.
