The Much Maligned Potato is Actually Very HealthyWhat would motivate a relatively healthy man to undergo a 60 day diet of potatoes only? In 2010, Chris Voight began his successful 60 day potato fast to prove the health merits of potatoes. His inspiration was ignited by the federal WIC (Women, Infants and Children) low-income assistance program's decision to remove potatoes from the list of vegetables that were being provided. Due to his losing weight and having improved health markers from blood testing, his experience went viral at that time. He did this on a Spartan variety of 20 potatoes or less daily, cooked differently with healthy oils and seasoned lightly but never smothered with butter or sour cream or bacon bits. Chris' 60 day potato diet was done without supplements, yet his health profile after the 60 days was amazing. As a result of Chris' experiment with the 60 day potato only diet, a handful of other individuals followed his lead with somewhat shorter potato only diets, usually around 30 days, also with amazingly health boosting weight loss results.
