I’ve wanted to try this for a couple of years but thought it was CRAZY and most likely that I would fail: eat nothing but potatoes for an entire month. It was an experiement to see if I could lose weight eating all the fries, hash browns, mashed potatoes I wanted – and most importantly, get over my junk food addiction. Inspired by “Spud Fit” Andrew Taylor, High Carb Hannah’s Potato Cleanse, and the Potato Man himself Dr. McDougall, I finally got the nerve to try this.
Something amazing happened, I suspected my taste buds would change slightly and they did, but much more than I ever expected. I’m absolutely blown away! This is my story about how I went from a finicky eater to a vegetable lover. Prior to the potato diet, I could not eat broccoli without gagging. Brussels Sprouts? Hell no! Even something as mild as romaine lettuce had to be smothered in hummus for me to eat it.
I always knew that I needed to get more veggies in my diet, especially if I want to lose weight and take my health to another level of awesomeness. I’m so happy I’ve been able to expand my vegetable menu.
Here’s a couple of videos that sum up what I got out of the challenge. First up is my results video, and the second is taste testing my most hated veggies – originally recorded live on YouTube.
