    Ryan, have you tried substituting the potatoes for sweet potatoes? The sweet potatoes or yams have a lower glycemic value and I believe a bit more fiber.

    As far as the potatoes, are you eating the skins? More fiber and that's where all the nutrients are at.

    I should start one of these, maybe it would keep my dietary intake in line.

    I didn't have any sweet potatoes on hand so I used what I had. Normally, I'd incorporate them.

    I do eat the skins.

    I will say that I am in the minority in my home as far as sweet potatoes go. Wife and kids are not as big fans of them, so I don't get a whole lot of buy in there. For the skins comment, I usually remove the skins for the sweet potatoes. There's something about the texture of the skin I don't care for.

    Stats revised:

    Height: 5'8" (no it didn't change lol)
    Weight: 172lbs
    BF: 26%

    I've gained muscle and fat since my beginning post. Made progress with S&S and I did a stint with GN's Kettlebell Extreme. Unfortunately, I got so hungry doing the latter program that I started eating a ton. I'm not sure how anyone could follow that program and the nutrition guidelines as well. That plus stress and serious sleeping problems over the last few months contributed to fat gain as well.

    Goal for 12/31/2019
    Weight 158lbs

    This seems doable and to help, I'm going to fire up the food log again.
