    Potatoes...

    I quit eating white rice so I eat a mashed potato once in a while. I never eat plenty of it but I eat a couple a day.

    The reason is do this is becuase nothing else really fills me up besides rice/potatoes.

    Good or bad and what would you eat?

    Well the potatoes would be pretty high on the GI. Have you thought about trying sweet potatoes which would be a better carb choice IMO. Also thing like beans, veggies, etc. would be better choices than mashed potatoes.

    go with brown rice a yam or sweet potato instead.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    if you enjoy potatoes and white rice, try mixing them with broccoli , coliflower ect, this will slow down the carb absorbsion into the bloodstream.

    you could always cooked a sweet potato and then mash it, and top it with some cinnamon. that always fills me up nicely. but like other people suggested, you could also try fibrous things like broccoli, cauliflower, brussel spouts, beans, those all can have a tendency to fill you up.

    But if you're cutting, I would try to stay away from fiberous fruit (due to the sugar).
