BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  White potato with skin for warriors
Posted by: smily, Friday, August 9, 2013, 5:48am
In the genotype book says Warriors shouldn't eat white potato with skin. Does anyone know if this refers to all potatos except sweet potatos or to just a particular type?

I'm also confuse about "the skin" remark. Does it mean that white potato can be eaten as long as it's without skin? I'm really confused about it or maybe I'm just trying to find the way around so I can eat some Lol! Any help with this would be much appreciated.  :)

potato is potato, no matter the color of the skin

Hi,  I am struggling with this one a bit too, I shouldn't eat white potatoes but here in the UK they are a staple, we often eat them at least once most days, and never tend to eat sweet potatoes  :-/ so far I'm cutting down.

I'm loving the genotype book btw, mine arrived the other day and I'm a third way through it already.  I'm getting my hubby to do the measurements on me proper this weekend, but so far I would think I am a hunter - but definitely not by the finger lengths so not sure what I'll be as yet!

Potatoes are a staple in the USA too. Lots of "staples" are actually unhealthy for many people, and it takes some creativity to get around that. It's hard for anybody, of any  blood type or genotype, to find restaurant food that's compliant. Most people who eat at restaurants frequently go to upscale places and make substitutions (such as rice instead of potatoes, or a bunless burger, etc.)

I've found that other root vegetables work well in place of potatoes in just about any recipe. Use the same spices and cooking techniques, but substitute sweet potatoes or turnips or beets or whatever for the potatoes the recipe normally calls for. It won't taste exactly the same, but it will  be delicious in its own way.

I hear ya, Smiley.  I think I posted one just like the above when I first started visiting this forum.

At the time I thought I was a Warrior, too, and every meal (practically!) centered around potatoes. But don't dispair.  If you can afford a SWAMI and want to do it, you may find that your SWAMI will allow you sweet potatoes.  

Jerusalem artichokes are also another substitute that, if allowed, you can try.  Some grocery stores carry them and, if you have any inclination to growing things, they are easy to grow, give you a pretty sunflower-type flower during the growing season, and, if you leave a few tubers in the ground each fall you will may never have to plant them again!

I've also followed the Excellent recipes listed on this site and found the Faux Potatoes VERY close to mashed potatoes.  It is simply millet (or one of your beneficial grains cooked with cauliflower.  Then mashed, salted and buttered (or gheed) up!  Mmmmmmmm.  There is also another recipe I've yet to try by the same name I believe.  It only uses cauliflower which you mash and season.  Rutabaga (yellow turnip) is another sub.

Keep an open mind.  Getting away from white potatoes was a good thing for me!.  I found that after having been on the BTD for a while and off potatoes, if I did eat them I'd wake up the next morning with puffy bags under my eyes.  Not to mention the agglutination and gradual clogging of the kidneys and brain stem's fine filters which Dr. D. told us about (I believe in ER4YT).  Also, since stopping their consumption, I was beginning to get these little 'growths on my eye lids.  Since stopping I noticed they are almost gone.  They visibly shrank.  Yeh!  I'll take success wherever I can find it.   ;D

Wishing you much success in your dietary adventures.  :)

Lola and ruthiegirl, I've never even tried sweet potatoes, but will definitely give them a go.  I probably eat potatoes about 5 times a week so far, (not counting a few bags of potato crisps (or I think you call them chips?) but I'm eating more rice and substituting the crisp snacks with nuts, dried fruit or other fruit like bananas.

White sweet potatoes are delicious. I don't know how they are rated - maybe they are no different from regular red sweet potatoes. I eat them now and then and never seem to have any problems. Regular white potatoes nearly kill me so I don't eat them at all.

I've been on enough message boards to be familiar with UK terms for things. When somebody wants a biscuit recipe, I know enough to ask if they're looking for cookies or small bread rolls. ;)

I don't even blink if somebody is talking about potato crisps instead of chips. I know I've seen sweet potato chips locally, but I don't know if they're available in the UK. The ones I've seen aren't fully compliant anyway- they're usually made with  "avoid" oils. It's the kind of thing I might buy for my birthday, but wont' eat the rest of the year. The best thing is to get away from "junk food" snacks and eat "real food" on a daily basis, and keep the chips/crisps for occasional treats.

If you can do it, just use the advanced calculator tables in the back of the book.  It will simplify your measurements and be less confusing...  Of course, you can do all of the measurements in preparation for SWAMI, if you intend to go that route...
