    Question Sweet Potato VS Potato. What is the difference ? Also diet help.

    Hello guys,

    What exactly are the actual differences between baked sweet potato and baked potato if they are prepped the same way ? Everyone opts for sweet as it is essential for body building and i don't know why. Macros seem solid on both.

    Also if anyone would give me ideas of what to change to my 2150 cutting cal diet that would be helpful. I'm on a 400-500 ish deficit

    1 full day : meal 1 : omlette, 1 egg yolk + 4 egg whites and 20g of baked potato and i would always add a tbs of olive oil here to include the olive oil for all the rest of the meal preps together for the rest of the day.
    meal 2 : Oats 70g + 2 whey scoops + 300g milk
    meal 3 : Baked / cooked chicken breast 150g + Baked potato 150g
    meal 4 : Red kidney beans. 400g can. Around 280g-300g without the water. I usually eat them raw with a little bit of pepper and that is.
    snack : Protein Bar 60g. Usually around 220 calories and sometimes a medium / small banana.

    If anyone would change anything i would be glad to hear it. If not i would rather stay on this one as i like it and its really easy to prep and eat without getting bored of it.

    Thank you !

    I eat about 2000-2100 cals a day myself at the moment. I certainly don’t eat the same exact thing every day however I definitely have 4-5 go to meals that are 400-550 cals each .I definitely try to stay under 600 cals a meal and generally am shooting for 50-60 G protein each meal.

    All of that said, at work, instead of “meals” I graze on chicken breast and fruits. I bring a full pound of chicken and try to eat it between 8am and 2 pm. I generally bring a small bag of strawberries, a banana and an apple. Y see, I do this because I cannot rely on access to a microwave for a hot meal. I also cannot rely on an actual meal break.


    As far as sweet potatoes vs regular potatoes, it has to do with glycemic index. I’m eating regular potatoes several times a day and it doesn’t interfere with wt loss at all.

    There isn’t enough difference between sweet and regular potatoes to worry about it.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
