1. SWAP: normal potato for sweet potato
If you’re struggling to stick to a calorie-restricted diet, swapping normal potatoes for sweet potatoes can be beneficial to stay within your ideal calorie intake. This is because it has fewer carbohydrates and calories compared to normal potatoes. The rich amount of dietary fibre in sweet potatoes can also make you feel fuller after eating so you don’t find yourself searching for snacks to nibble on after a meal. Besides that, if you switched out baked potato for baked sweet potato every other day for a year, you’d save enough calories to lose two pounds of fat! How great is that?
