Benefits of adding sweet potatoes to a healthy diet:
Sweet potatoes fall under the starch category. So, are sweet potatoes something you should include in your daily diet? Sweet potatoes are from the complex carbohydrate category. Of all carbs, complex carbs are best for a healthy diet. Some of the benefits of complex carbs are that they slow down the absorption of sugars. This assists in removing cholesterol. It also slows down digestion. When digestion is slowed this results in keeping you full longer which in turn reduces the amount of food consumed. Another reason to add complex carbohydrates into your diet is to fuel your body during and after high intensity work outs. With all this in mind, sweet potatoes are a great addition to a healthy diet. However, portion control is important if eating them often.
