Better than potatoes, try butternut squash. It tastes similar to sweet potato but with much lower calories. Plus, its in season…

Compare these:
White potato, baked, peal eaten, fat not added in cooking - 1.5 cups - 169 calories
Sweetpotato, baked, peel not eaten, fat not added in cooking - 1.5 cups - 267 calories
Squash, winter, butternut, cooked, baked - 1.5 cups - 123 calories (note: only info available is for cubed; info on mashed is not available)
