Of course, "quickest" is relative. What I mean is I get maybe an extra 2-5%, as opposed to the 95-98% that comes simply from going Paleo, controlling caloric intake, and having a good workout program. The difference exists, but is not worth it to my sanity.

If you are above 8-9% body fat, I wouldn't even worry about it provided you aren't eating like fifteen bananas a day.
Thanks for posting this. Something new I learned today is that sweet potatoes are really not that different with the regular potato

One big difference is that it is not a nightshade.

And for some reason over here, people believe sweet potatoes make you fart a lot

everyone is different, I got down to my leanest point ever with fruit as my main carb source. I was also eating oatmeal with my first meal of the day everyday. For me it seems that the type of training I am doing dictates my fat loss, even more so than diet. But even when I'm heavier on carbs it's still oatmeal and fruit.
