In terms of weight loss, both can help as long as consumed within allowed serving portions based on a calorie deficit meal plan. In terms of caloric equivalence, katumbas ng 100g ng cooked potato ang energy na makukuha sa 56g cooked sweet potatoes. On a per gram basis, mas mababa ang calorie content ng patatas. Volume wise, mas marami ang pwedeng kainin sa patatas.


Pero sa totoo lang, parehas ay pwedeng maging parte ng isang WHOLE FOODS BASED MEAL PLAN. Both are healthy and nakakabusog. Kung trip mong medyo matamis, kamote ang piliin. Kung ipapalit naman sa kanin at papartneran ng ulam, patatas ang piliin.


In terms of vitamins and minerals, the slight difference won’t really matter if you consume other whole foods through out the day such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.


Lastly, let us not forget to look at our macro dietary habits as much as we scrutinize the micro food choices. Kaya lagi ko din po ipinapaalala sa inyo ang pagconsult sa mga REGISTERED NUTRITIONIST-DIETITIAN dahil sila/kami po talaga ang mga professionals na makakatulong upang ma-correct ang nutritional challenges based on a bigger perspective.
