    Baked Potato Points

    Source of Recipe

    Recipe Introduction

    Don't forget the bigger the potato the more fiber, and there is a 4 fiber gram cap.These are for baked potatoes, with no oil coating or topping. Should you eat the skin? The skin of the potato contains the majority of the potato's fiber, and many of the nutrients are located close to the skin. Dose Weight Watchers consider a potato a vegetable? yes a starchy vegetable
