Best Answer

If you are eating the skin with your baked potato, then you are getting a great source of carbohydrates (starch), fiber and vitamin C. Potatoes are a wonderful staple that can be a part of a healthy meal -- as long as you continue to add a variety of foods to your diet. So, the effect is that baked potatoes contribute needed nutrients to a healthy meal plan. However, if you are not eating a variety and allowing most of your calories to come from potatoes, then you will be short of many other nutrients you need for survival. The effect would be to become malnourished or short of nutrients you need for survival.
