This Harvard professor says you should eat only 6 fries at once .

What size are these fries?

(Obviously eating fries is not healthy, I think this was if you needed a cheat or if you were stuck at a fast food joint).
Years ago when I would be out driving all day for work I would stop and get a kid's meal at McDonald's; the burger and fries were just the right size and the toy came in handy when I had clients with small children.

This is typical click-bait nonsense.

I eat as many fries as I want, just not as often as I want. I could probably eat them daily, but instead I have them about 1-4 times a month.

Acrylamide will kill you.

My understanding is Glidden is a quack, as is anything "naturopathic".

I am all for portion control, but if I can only eat six, I'm not even going to bother.

I can hardly believe that the issue is the type of potato, but the oil that they are fried in.

It is possible to bake potatoes without oil and they come out soft, tasting like potato, and relatively low calorie.

After baking, I usually put some dijon mustard - no calorie, some salt - and rosemary on them.

Sweet potato too, and they need no extra condiment.

Even yucca, but it comes out crunchy, not soft.

Hope this helps.
