He might be thinking of wild yams, which are supposed to be a source of DHEA

How are they good for a cutting diet if the GI is 100? That's like eating pure glucose. Now don't get me wrong sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods but during a cutting diet (or bulking, for that matter) you should stick to low GI foods as your main carb source. The sweet potatoes might be a good source of high GI post workout carbs if you are from that camp.

sweet potatoes are low GI.

Then was the GI=100 figure incorrect? Or does the low GI come from fructose?

Lee Haney has his own protein powder that is fortified with sweet potato, what is up with that?

i could have been wrong. Actually i got that the gi of a sweet potatoe is 100 from a friend in Australia named Josh Dickonson. Hes a Natural Bodybuilder, and has his own website.
Im keeping eating them...whether they do or dont increase anabolic hormones there great for a slow burning carb source and damn tasty.

What do you mean by "fortified?" Does the protein powder contain dehydrated sweet potato powder or something? Jay Robb has a product called yammit that he calls a sweet potato cereal. Think rice crispies, but heavier and made from yams. I've not tried it, because like all of his products, it's way overpriced. A great idea though.Originally Posted by b_delgros

I read about sweet potatoes a few years ago, and what most don't realize is that the sweetness is not from fructose--it is an enzyme. Sweet potatoes are supposedly low-mid GI. Definitely lower than regular white potatoes.
