I have had good reason to keep the secret, and that is, there wasn’t much data out, and I didn’t want to send you down a rabbit hole unprepared for the results.

French Scalloped Potatoes

Potatoes can be dangerous to your weight if eaten too often or too much in one sitting.

If you will be eating them right out of the oven just keep your portion smaller. Maybe a half cup. Savor it and as long as your weight is stabilized you should be okay. Just don’t do it too often.

Servings: Serves 6.
