If you are going to choose the Potato Diet, as your chosen way of trying to lose weight.
You will want to know how much Fat their is in a Potato. A medium sized Baked Potato has a trace, 0.2 grams of Fat, that is obviously without any dressing. When people are using the Potato Diet to try an shed a couple of pounds, it's always the Baked Potato Filling, that they struggle with.
It wouldn't be worth eating a Baked Potato which has a trace of Fat, only to fill it with Cheese or another high fat filling, that would be 1 step forward, and 2 back.
Why not try a couple of these Low Fat Baked Potato Fillings, so that you keep your Potato Fat Content as low as possible.
Low Fat Sour Cream, instead of Butter.
Low Fat Cottage Cheese, instead of Regular Cheddar Cheese.
You can also try Low Fat Cheese, but in the past, i have always found it a little dry.
So just remember, that the Potato Fat Content is basically nothing, it's always the topping or filling that is adding Fat to your meal.
