Potato Diet Details: Chris Voigt Loses 21 Pounds
Need to lose a few pounds? How would you like to be on a potato diet? Indeed, it does not sound as simple as it sounds. Don't think for a second that all those yummy toppings that are usually associated with potatoes can be added.
Chris Voigt, 45, ate a total of 1,200 potatoes during his 60-day diet. Voigt lost a grand total of 21 pounds.
He said in an interview with The Seattle Times, "I've baked, boiled, broiled, fried, smashed and shredded potatoes." He said he avoided butter, sour cream, and bacon bits during his potato diet. He ate 20 potatoes a day.
So why did he do this? Well it just so happens that Voigt is the executive director of the Washington State Potato Commission. This is masterful promoting of potatoes at it's best.
Voigt made the case that carbohydrates are not to be blamed for the obesity crisis in the U.S. He said, "It seemed as if the potato was being blamed for the obesity crisis, for diabetes, that it was the scourge of the earth."
