    It's 21 kcal per 28g. So your potato was 176 kcal.

    :)

    I'm just about to have a sweet potato and it's a lot more kcals than I thought it would be, oops.

    An average baked potato raw weight 250g is 198 calories (fits into your hand nicely)

    Sweetpotato is 24 calories raw weight per 28g

    Sweetpotato is a lower GI food though than an ordinary potato so is better for keeping the sugar levels steadier, unless you have low GI foods with an ordinary potato to balance it out.
