COMPARED to other veggies, no they are not calorically dense, but COMPARED to other veggies, for example broccoli, cauliflower, etc.

I meant the statement of "they're like eating white sugar" from the guy I quoted.

What you mean by "simple carbs" refers to monosaccharides. Potatoes do not consist of monosaccharides (i.e. glucose, fructose) but of starches (polysaccharides) as have been mentioned earlier here.

Whole grains, preferably organic, are a good source.
Potatoes are complex carb, starch = complex carbs. Great for energy, but store as fat easier than less starchy carbs as you mentioned. Potatoes should be a fighters friend.

Lots of starch. It could make loosing those last few pounds tough.
