Yes. Potatoes are a carbohydrate-rich vegetable. A medium, 5.3 ounce potato with the skin contains 26 grams of carbohydrate.
If I am trying to lose weight, do I need to avoid potatoes?
No. Research demonstrates that people can eat potatoes and still lose weight. There is no evidence that potatoes, when prepared in a healthful manner, impede weight loss. #PotatoNutritionalFacts
Are French fries and potato chips healthy?
Staple foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains should be eaten every day, while fried foods and high fat snacks should be viewed as occasional treats. One food, even one meal, does not make or break a healthful diet.
Understanding the impact that fried foods, like fries and chips, or high-fat foods like ice cream and cookies, have on your overall eating pattern makes it possible for you to “make room” for them as occasional indulgences. #PowerPotatoes #PotatoNutritionalFacts
Should people with diabetes avoid foods like potatoes?
What about people trying to lose weight? After an extensive review of the scientific research regarding carbohydrate intake and diabetes, the American Diabetes Association concluded that, for people with diabetes, the total
amount of carbohydrate in meals and snacks, rather than the type, is more important in determining the blood sugar (Glycemic) response.

Similarly, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA) concluded that, when it comes to weight management, it is calories that count, not the proportion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. #Powefulpotatoes #PotatoNutritionalFacts
Are all the nutrients in the skin of the potato?
No. The notion that all of the nutrients are found in the skin is a myth.  While the skin does contain approximately half of the total dietary fiber, the majority (> 50%) of the nutrients are found within the potato.
