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.
