    Not excessive, I would love to eat potatoes every day, but I've noticed I don't lose too much so I try to mix it up with rice and pasta x

    I love jackets and could easily live on them! I have lost and maintained with eating them on almost a daily basis.

    Carbs get a bad press and people seem obsessed with keeping carbs low but your body needs carbs to function properly. Obviously there are better choices to make than others when it comes to this.


    Long live the carb!! :p

    I find I eat less and I don't get so hungry if I have carbs.

    I love jacket potatoes and would happily eat them everyday.

    I dont think you need to worry. I love jacket potatoes too, and have one for lunch almost every day!
    Serve with lots of salad to make sure you get your portion control and you will be fine :)
    Good luck! xx

    They are great! If you're worried though, you could alternate them with sweet potatoes sometimes, if you like sweet potatoes, which I do!
