Even the portion of the meal got larger and afraid of gaining weight, No No No. The truth is losig more weight. It helps digestion and has fiber.
Just avoid any types of 'processed carb'. That's the enemy(!) that should avoid.
Personally, I like red potato for creamier and sweetness flavor.
When you cook just throw in more healthy carb in your meal. It will help your digestion and will improve health gradually. Do noy quite. It might seem to take a while to some of people to see the health improvement but it will come without taking nasty killing medicine.
