Potatoes are high on the satiety index, and that is good. I just learned about the satiety index this year, so just google it to find out more.
White potatoes are high on the glycemic index; I have been trying to work more with sweet potatoes since they they are lower on the glycemic index. The glycemic index provides a comparison to tell how fast a food is broken down for its glucose in relation to sugar. Glucose is 100 and other foods are rated in comparison to it.
Overall, potatoes are a good food. Most people add a bunch of high fat, salty and meaty ingredients to them that decreases their use as a healthy food. The real focus needs to be on using potatoes in a healthy manner.
