Again, I want to thank those of you who submitted articles.  If your article was not included, one of two things happened.  Either, it was so off-topic that I couldn’t find a way to work it into a carnival about debt reduction, or, I didn’t receive it because Blog Carnival’s site was down.  If you have questions about why your submission wasn’t included, feel free to hit my contact button at the top of the page and shoot me an email.

For those of you who are new to my site, welcome, and I hope you’ll take a minute to view this handy debt reduction guide, complete with a free e-book.

    But baked potatoes are still healthy. But only if you eat the one or two small red potatoes with the skin on and no salt, butter, sour cream, cheese… ;)

  7. Jason,

    Thanks for hosting such a fabulous carnival! I love how cleanly you listed things. I’m so glad you actually like my blog name! I’ve always been slightly self-conscious of it, wondering if it was too odd a name to use. My blog’s old name was “The Curly Tree Money Blog” in honor of my curly willow tree, but I thought that sounded way too silly for a finance blog. haha! :) So i changed it to what it is today.

    Your information is outdated. This is what doctors used to believe. Now they no better.

    The problem with potatoes is their high glycemic index, regardless on what you put on them. When you eat a potato even with nothing on it, your blood glucose level spikes rapidly. This causes high demand to produce insulin. Eating high glycemic index foods contributes to the risk of diabetes according to a number of studies. This article explains glycemic index and contains references to studies: http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/infocenter/foods/grains/gigl.html
    Also read this article from the Harvard Institute of Public Health (search for “potato” on the side bar): “Potatoes are a rapidly digested starch; nutritionally, they have more in common with white bread than with other vegetables, and they should be eaten only occasionally” http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/healthy-weight/healthy-weight-full-story/index.htmll

    Sorry for being off-topic, but I just had to reply to the first guy…
