The tater has been unfairly demonized. It’s actually a potent hunger tamer. In a study that measured the satiating index of 38 foods, including brown rice and whole-wheat bread, people ranked boiled potatoes higher, reporting that they felt fuller and ate less two hours after consuming them. Although potatoes are often shunned because they’re considered high in carbohydrates, they shouldn’t be. Whether baked or boiled, they’re loaded with vitamins, fiber and other nutrients. Result? You get steady energy and a lasting satisfied feeling after eating them.
