- 1 potato = about 100 calories, almost entirely carbs
- Source of potassium
A 20 pound bag of potatoes has around 8000 calories and costs less than $10... around $0.10-0.15 per 100 calories. Compare that to $1.50 or more for a typical gel, and I think potato power is the way to go!
I tried the potatoes this weekend - they were fantastic!
I also tried sweet potatoes, that didn't go as well... too mushy. But the small red potatoes hit the spot, especially with a generous sprinkling of salt. It didn't even bug me that they were cold, and like he says, with the moisture they go down easy.
