Did you know that you’re missing out on the awesome potato’s fat-fighting power when you eat them warm instead of cold? It’s true! When you let them cool, then refrigerate them and eat them cold, their digestible starches transform into ‘resistant starch’ known as retrogradation. ..a process that resists digestion and promotes fat oxidation which reduces abdominal fat.
