    This is ridiculous. You can't eat any single food exclusively for 60
    days and consider yourself eating healthy. Doesn't matter what it is.
    A diet of nothing but apples or lettuce will leave you malnourished
    for that long.

    Potatoes are a nutritious vegetable if prepared without a ton of
    additional fat. And they can and should be part of a healthy diet.
    PART OF. Not the entire diet.

    What about vitamins that are not found in potatoes? What about
    Protein?

    He would do the Potato board (or wherever he works) more of a service
    if he simply ate a potato with each meal of the day, prepared in any
    of the millions of ways potatoes can be prepared.

    This guy is an idiot.

    Although I agree, I think it's a great publicity stunt, and hopefully,
    you can't get too malnourished in 60 days.

    Did you look at the site? Here's one page on nutrients:

    http://www.20potatoesaday.com/20_potatoes_a_day_002.htm

    "A person my height and weight needs to consume 2200 calories a day just
    to maintain my weight. An average potato (5.3 oz) contains 110 calories.
    I'll need to eat 20 potatoes a day to maintatin my weight. Below is an
    example of the nutrients I'll be getting from my 20 potatoes a day...
    Vitamin C 942%
    Protein 116% "

    There were a lot of other nutrients listed, but the cut and paste didn't
    work well.

    I can't see that he would get any publicity that way, though.

    I think he's pretty sharp, myself.

    20 potatoes a day sounds like more than I can eat. I don't mean "more
    potatoes than I can stand" I mean "how much stuff I can physically
    pack into my digestive system".

    No mention of size, but in the pic they look like average sized
    Russets. Even 20 of the tiny red ones is pretty volumous.

    It's all there. 148g/5.3oz, about 7 pounds a day. Those are pretty
    small potatoes, but you're right, that's a lot of bulk! Still, I've
    read that the Irish pretty much lived on potatoes at times. They also
    had to eat that volume of potatoes to get enough calories to live on.

    Did you go to the web site and read it? If the answer is yes, he is not an
    idiot but a smart marketing guy.
    Many of us here helped him achieve his goal.

    I'm not quite sure, but I think the Irish Potato Famine would say lots about
    what people would lose if we didn't have spuds in our diets
