    Eating all potatoes is wacky, sure. I wouldnt do it, and I love potatoes. But they indeed get a bad rap, theyre far better than the processed surgary stuff most people eat every day...

    I am not saying that potatoes are bad for you, it is just like anything else, the body requires more than one food for a balanced, healthy diet. However he has his reason for doing this, so hopefully it will have the results that he is hoping for.

    It could become a trendy new spiritual discipline, The Potato Fast, distinguishable from the Potato Famine by the other activities of practitioners.
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    I love potatoes. I could probably eat them everyday without a problem...but certainly not 20 of 'em. At least I hope that I couldn't eat 20 potatoes in a day.

    Well don't forget that the potato famine happened because people were eating pretty much nothing but potatoes until the blight hit...

    ...and after the blight they just went on with eating the pretty much nothing.

    Yeah, this is the part I can't wrap my head around.. I would imagine that even for a normal person this would be a stress on their system... I couldn't (successfully) consume that much carbs in a day, even if I tried.

    This is way too funny. Did you watch the video from the shopping trip? He tried to leave without paying for the potatoes!!!! It was amazing!

    re: shopping video
    Certainly not the next food network star, and miles away from the take-home chef.

    20 potatoes just seems like a lot for one day.

    Which just goes to show you what's wrong with a low-fat diet, since he'll be getting enough protein (enough complete protein for an adult, though not for a young child).

    Actually close to enough of almost everything. He would need B12 and fats. Vitamin A if he doesn't eat the skins.

    That's sort of an illustration of how traditional food pairings make foods nutritionally complete. Topping a potato with a bit of GRASS-FED dairy product would give vitamins A, B12 and healthy fats, and make the protein even better.

    The guy is regretting his decision to go for 60 days.
    Boy. There's a surprise.

    "The Washington state man who's on a 60-day all-potato diet wishes he had set a goal of one month instead of two. Chris Voigt told the Tri-City Herald that — as good and healthy as potatoes are — there's only so many ways they can be prepared. And, about halfway through his tuber diet, which began Oct. 1, he's had them boiled, baked, steamed, grilled, fried, marinated and mashed."

    I'm waiting for someone in the corn industry to try and best him.

    Just about everything most people eat is made from corn, anyway.
