Stupid question time...

Will the potatoes in the crock pot affect the carbs in the roast? I feel silly for asking but is it like a banana too close to a loaf of bread making the bread smell like the banana....

I don't know the answer to that, but I hope not! I do the same thing.

Potato starch will affect the gravy. I would just scrape all the gravy off and eat the meat, but if you're very sensitive to potato cravings I'd be mindful of how you feel afterwards. If it's a problem, in the future you could cook the potatoes separately by boiling them in a pot when you do your food prep and just add them to the pot roast when it's done.

Enjoy the delicious meat in any case!

I make beef stew from scratch and just eat the beef while serving DH the potatoes and carrots. It hasn't appeared to affect me.

I don't think it's a stupid question at all. I have always wondered this myself. I would say that some of the starch is BOUND to cook out of the potato while boiling. Why is the water kind of cloudy/milky looking when you are done boiling potatoes? I would say it's some of the starch that cooked out.

It depends on how strict you are dieting on whether to worry about it. If you are doing Induction super strict <20 grams a day, I would eat the meat and leave the juice/gravy/liquids from the pot alone. If you are on a higher carb plan, I don't think a little starch that seeped out of a potato will hurt anything.

i believe that some of the starch will leech into the gravy

but, depending how austere your lc plan, direct your portion sizes accordingly. if you are able to have some w/o penalty, enjoy. we are not on a diet. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

I just wanted to echo "not a stupid question"

I've wondered this myself. Sometimes I'll cook the potatoes separately (generally roasted at high heat) ... but usually I don't have time for that and I just throw them in and hope for the best.
