You can eat potatoes during weight loss

Who doesn’t love potato starch? A potato starch that helps our bodies digest it slowly so it doesn’t interfere with our blood sugar levels or jeopardize our weight loss process. So, choose to eat the humble tater tot the right way without worrying about your waistline.

Simple Tips for Cooking Potatoes Properly

Boil the potatoes, cool them and freeze them as it significantly lowers the GI of the potatoes, making them healthier and more nutritious. Now blanch them in 28 grams of diluted white vinegar as this process reduces the GI level by 30-40%. You can also add a few drops of lemon instead of vinegar, but keep in mind that vinegar is more effective at lowering the glycemic index. Even doctors recommend diabetics to use vinegar in their diet as it helps control blood sugar levels.

Other ways to reduce potato starch formation process

1. Cut the potatoes into pieces, blanch them in hot water for 30 minutes, cool them slightly and then cook them. This can lower the glycemic index and make them easier to digest.

2. Cook potatoes by boiling, steaming or using microwave without adding other ingredients. Preparing the tater tots in this way will ensure that they are very low in salt, sugar and fat.

3. Another healthy way to cook potatoes is to cook them with the skin on, which provides fiber to the body.

4. Consuming 2 servings of cooked broccoli and 1 serving of mashed potatoes can significantly lower the glycemic index.

Slow down the process of potato starch release

Two key enzymes slowly release glucose from potatoes. Usually these enzymes move faster, and the starch in the potatoes is quickly broken down by the enzymes and quickly converted into glucose. If the starch in potatoes degrades slowly, the digestive process will be slowed, preventing the usual rapid rise in blood sugar. If the starch degrades slowly, potatoes won't be harmful to diabetics or disrupt our weight loss efforts.

What should not be paired with white potatoes?

Don't add tuna or chicken breast to your potatoes, as it doubles the amount of insulin your body has to pump. Animal protein can make it worse, while plant-based protein can make it better because branched-chain amino acids increase metabolic rate.
