Do you know that some people eat sweet potatoes when they are trying to lose weight? Actually, my former officemate who really got fat used it to diet and lost weight. She’s now back to her sexy self. She eats a medium size boiled sweet potato instead of rice to go with the viand for her meals, she said, for her diet. A famous celebrity was said to be bringing to the set during her shooting, boiled sweet potato as her rice for her meals. She really had maintained a sexy figure even if she is already in her 40’s now. I love sweet potatoes. We would usually have it for breakfast. I put some butter on when I eat it. There was a time when I would eat a boiled sweet potato to go with the viands for dinner. I stopped because I was losing weight, which I don't like. Do you like the sweet potato? Do you think you can have it instead of bread or rice, when you go on a diet?

You can also eat normal potatoes, the calories are the same, 100 grams of potatoes is about 90 calories, 100 grams of rice 330 calories, you can easily see the difference. Rice is fattening. I do not like sweet potatoes, but I often eat a potato instead of bread. Rice is not something we eat often here.

Yes, potatoes can be a substitute for rice also. I like potatoes too. However, potatoes here is expensive, compared to the sweet potatoes. Besides, sweet potatoes for me is tastier and has some sweetness. Rice indeed is fattening. It's our staple food here to go with our viands at meal times. I know that it's not your staple food there.

Here, usually, it is eaten for snacks. It is fried and with caramelized sugar. So delicious. But for those on a diet, it's just boiled.Instead of rice which is the staple food here, they eat this to go with the viands at meal times. What's your staple food there in your country?

Yes, as long as you eat only a moderately big one. You boil a lot of it , then put keep some in the ref. Just reheat one for every meal instead of rice. Mas fibrous and heavy kasi kay filling talaga agad sa tyan (It's more fibrous and heavy to the stomach so you fill up quickly by eating it along with a viand. Unlike rice on which you eat two cups to be full.
