Question Question about potatoes ????

I have an unusal question about potatoes.

I now substitute the grilled veggies for the baked potato when eating out.
My husband loves the interior potato but he never eats the skin,
I love the skins..... so ... is it the white center potato that is high in carbs ?
Can I eat the skin he leaves. ?? I would think it would be the main fiber of the potato.

Fitday tells me: 115 calories, 27 grams of carb with 5 of fiber, 2 grams of protein.
I guess it depends on you but skins are yummy - especially with butter!

Thanks Ruth. I also posted this in an Atkin site and I have gotten an array of answers.
The lowest count I recieved was 4-5 grams carbs with .9 fiber.
The hightest was 43 carbs with no mention of fiber.

I only know that I agree.... the skins are yummy and I think they will be an occasional treat when going to our favorite steak house.

It is good to see you still posting. I am on reinduction as of 9-22-04
Hopefully ... no DEFINITELY.... I am going to WIN at losing this time.

2cute, I've kept posting every day - nearly - for five years now. Even when I gained I posted. Now I seem to be back on the losing track again.
It's nice to see you here too!

Hopefully this will be the LAST time we have to start over.
Good luck and happy low carb eating.
