Potato Hackin’: First Impressions

Let me give you a bit of background info on this bad boy:

That’s literally the entire thing.

If you think that you can handle eating potatoes non-stop for 3-5 days, taking a break and eating normally-ish, and then hitting those potatoes hard again, this is the plan for you (if you’re into that kinda thing).

The boyf and I have decided to take on the potato hack for the next 5 months to see what it’s truly like. One of the things I love most about this little diddy is the fact that it’s not a diet, but it is a hack. Hot damn, would ya look at that? The first few days have been a little rough, I’ll admit; but honestly it’s been so easy to stick to. Potatoes are hella cheap and easy, so that’s a huge bonus. I have been eating strictly potatoes for about 3 days and I’ve lost three pounds already. As someone who has a difficult time losing weight (and by that I mean, I went to the gym 6 days a week for a minimum of 1.5 hours for 3 months and ate nothing but salads and protein but only lost 4 pounds), this has been a big deal to me.

This thing is a winner. I can get away with literally eating the cheapest thing around, cleaning one pot, one plate, and a fork each day… I mean, can it get much better than that?

If you’re interested, you should definitely follow the links below to check out The Potato Hack by Tim Steele and quite honestly, check out Spud Fit by Andrew Taylor, Mandy van Zanen & Time Steele, as well. (This way I can buy more potatoes!)

(Or just Google “Potato Hack,” there’s lots of information online.)

Andrew Taylor has had some amazing success following the potato hack plan. Losing 110lbs in 8 months seems crazy, but this guy did it! And, from what I gather, fairly easily too. He is such a huge inspiration and someone that has knocked out both his depression and anxiety, wouldn’t we all love to be able to say the same?!

After 3 days of eating strictly potatoes, I can say that the Potato Famine of Ireland must not have been that bad… am I allowed to say that? Whoops.

Keep it starchy.
