Do you love french fries? Me too! I mean, who doesn’t… french fries are one of those amazingly delicious foods that satisfy all kinds of cravings.
Unfortunately, if you’re reaching for the typical french fries deep fried in vegetable shortening, your health and waistline are going to pay a VERY costly price to satisfy that craving. In fact, a modest 200 gram serving (equivalent to 1 potato) contains:
76g of high glycemic carbs
34g of fat
And without a doubt the worst stat of all: 16g of trans fat! Yikes!
Fortunately, you can still satisfy that french fry craving with this healthy and delicious alternative.
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
*3 large sweet potatoes (each peeled and sliced into 8 wedges)
*1 tbsp of olive oil
*1/2 tsp of sea salt
*1/2 – 1 tsp of cinnamon
*1/4 tsp paprika
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, toss all ingredients (except the cinnamon) until the potato wedges are evenly coated with oil and spices.
Place on a baking sheet, separated evenly, and then sprinkle cinnamon on top as desired. Bake for 30 minutes or until done.
Nutrition facts per 200 grams:
39g of lower glycemic carbs
9g of fat
And best of all: ZERO grams of trans fat!
Next time you’re in the mood for french fries, give this healthy and delicious alternative a try. You’ll save more than 350 calories while completely avoiding the health-derailing trans fats found in deep fried french fries.
Now, if you’re someone who is generally sensitive to carbs (i.e. all the carbs you eat, like pasta and potatoes, tend to get stored around your waist or seemingly attach themself directly to your butt, hips, and thighs), then you’ll be happy to know that I personally had an incredible solution developed to solve this very problem. It’s called IC-5™.
You see, IC-5™ is a truly revolutionary formula whose ingredients are research-proven to help you shuttle the carbohydrates you eat to muscle (to be used as energy) instead of being stored as stomach flab like you’re probably used to.
Specifically, IC-5™ helps you:
*automatically lower the glycemic index of the foods you eat
*significantly increase insulin sensitivity so you can burn more fat
*considerably decrease fat storage from carb intake
*dramatically increase carbohydrate tolerance up to 10 fold
Again, IC-5™ is the exact formula I had created for my personal use, and now you can experience its effectiveness, too. Just take two (2) capsules before any carbohydrate-containing meal and let science do the rest.
