Default Are potatoes good or bad for a bodybuilder?

I heard that potatoes have a high GI and this would mean they are not good.

I think yams are even better than sweet potatoes because of the sugar content.

If you eat the potato w/ the skin, it lowers the GI b/c it adds fiber, right? So they aren't THAT bad for a bulk, are they??

Would you have a glass of sucrose and a side of broccoli on your bulk?

Sweet potatoes, yams, barley, brown rice (long grain),bulgur wheat and granny smiths apples (for liver glcyogen; low GI).

Personally, I eat mainly oats, but any of the above should be fine.

We're are not talking about Sweet potatoes and Yams, these have a low GI and should be consumed on a bulk and cut.
