Full paper linked if you want the granular details.
    Potatoes are good for suppressing appetite. I just lost 40lbs on a carb diet.... Now that I feel I have lost enough weight I'm eating eggs as well as potatoes. Never felt better Pics taken yesterday.

    The main thing that makes you fat is FAT.... The way food is prepared is what makes the biggest difference, stay away from fat and oils and you are half way there.

    I'm not aware of any unique effects of potatoes suppressing appetite, but the most satiating macro nutrient by far is protein.

    That's a lot of mythology for one post bro. If it's simply fat that makes you fat, why do people lose weight on keto diets?

    It's because potatoes are filling. You can't eat a lot and they are low in calories, combine the two and you will lose weight guaranteed, so long as they are not cooked in oil or fat. Worked for me perfectly.

    I can't explain that as I have no idea what a keto diet is.

    PS. If a high carb diet is nothing like keto how come I lost weight easily ?

    Vegetables are more filling and far lower in calories, so that's not something unique to a potato. Potatoes are mostly starch of course and most would view them as less than ideal food to focus on for weight loss. Having said that, if it worked for you, drive on I say. Remember however statistically speaking, getting the weight off is not the hard part, keeping off is the hard part and any diet/nutritional approach that does not account for that, is fail. Good luck.

    Then I'd advise you not to give nutritional advice if it's clearly not your lane.

    Because you ingested calories below your required maintenance for a long enough period of time to lose wight, for the same reason others lose wight on which ever diet they follow.

    Cuz calories.

    Keeping my weight the same will be easy, if it starts to go up I can just go back into potatoes heavily again and lose weight in an instant.
