    Potato chips aren't doing anything...it's the people eating them. Don't buy them. Easy.

    yourname2000 saidI'm from Prince Edward Island, which is definitely potato country, and I think of the things as white death...they're to be avoided like the plague. I'll take a yam or sweet potato over a white pototoe any day of the week (though once in a blue moon I'll make fish cakes with potatoes.)

    In this thread's study, while potato chips were the worst for "piling on the pounds", potatoes in general were found to lead to weight gain (whether you boiled them, mashed them, fried them, etc.)

    And a few years back, the Swedes found that when potatoes are cooked at high temps, a carcinogenic molecule is created called "acrylamide": http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/acrylamide-in-food

    And from another source: "An ordinary bag of crisps may contain acrylamide up to 500 times more than the maximum level allowed in drinking water by the World Health Organisation (WHO)."



    This thread made me laugh. Couldn't resist. Whenever my dad sees someone that is overweight, he always says, "Someone needs to knock the chips outta her hands." LOL

    No processed carbs (chips) on the paleo diet but you can eat full fat natural food. It really pays off.

    Really depends what you put on your potatoes or how you cook them; a small baked potato [with the skin on] without any fixings, has 5 times the amount of potassium than a banana.
