Among the many diets available to help you lose weight, one of the most original can be identified, without a doubt, as the so-called “potato diet”. That, at least, is what Andrew Taylor guarantees. The 34 year old Australian claims to have lost twelve pounds in a months thanks to his potato diet. As extreme diet like this can perhaps help aid in weight loss, but it is most certainly not beneficial to the body. Let’s also not forget that losing weight too quickly has significant aesthetic consequences, too, like leaving you with loose skin and unpleasant stretch marks.

The Man Behind The Diet

The Australian had come to weight a ton and a half, more or less, and after consulting with a nutritionist and a doctor, decided to undergo his extreme potato diet which prevents him from eating any other food. The crazy and controversial Taylor declares that, although it is a monotonous diet, it’s one that have no nutritional deficiencies. According to him, in fact, the intake of fibre and vitamins is normal. Interviewed by the Independent, he revealed some recipes that included soy milk so as to avoid having to deal with the consequences that could result from calcium deficiency. A test of physical strength, no doubt, but also for the mind.

How Good Are Potatoes For You

In short, it’s a diet that makes you lose weight, but it’s absolutely not one that’s recommended. This does not mean, of course, that the potatoes aren’t good for the body, as well as a source of important nutrients. For example, they ensure the intake of carbohydrates which can be absorbed by the body with ease, but are also rich in phosphorus, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C and B vitamins. Thanks to the antioxidants they contain, they promote the lowering of blood pressure and, of course, oppose the action of the radicals free by preventing and fighting skin aging.
