That's not the case with me but sweet potato will. Also if I drink more than a glass of fresh or pasteurized milk I will surely pass gas. Lately, I had what they call Jerusalem artichoke and the whole day I was passing gas. It's terrible! It's good I'm a stay at home and most of the people are out during the day. I can imagine going to work and passing gas with repulsive smell.

Yes surely potatoes and any kind of deep fried food is going to add to fat. Actually it would also depend on the kind of activity the person is involved in. Those who are in a hard job which leads to high usage of caloires might not gain weight even with oily foods.

I think it honestly depends on the person and how their stomach and intestines handle certain foods. I dont get gassy from potato chips but any milk products containing lactose make me incredibly gassy. Lettuce or Cabbage make some people gassy. I have a friend that gets gassy from popcorn..even without butter.

Well there is a common "myth" that beans make you fart. I believe it is because beans already have these "gases" in them that are released when they are getting digested.
