Are Sweet Potatoes Paleo? | The Paleo Diet
Are sweet potatoes paleo? Baked or boiled – I thought not!
Maelán Fontes’ Response:
Yes, sweet potatoes are allowed, specially in the post-workout period if you are an athlete. Sweet potatoes are different from potatoes in that they do not contain several harmful substances such as saponins and lectins, which may increase your intestinal permeability (if consumed regularly) and rev-up your immune system. But on the other hand, sweet potatoes are high glycemic index foods and should be restricted if you are struggling with overweight, at least until your body weight normalizes.

I hope this helps.
