In line with his desire to increase people’s awareness and appetite for potatoes, Chris Voigt, executive director of the Washington State of Potato Commission, promised to live off on 20 potatoes a day in two months, which might be cut off to just one month after having found out how tought it is to live on taters alone.
“I think when I started this diet I underestimated how physically difficult it is to eat 20 potatoes. You’re feeling full all the time. I’m literally having to eat three potatoes every couple of hours. So it’s a challenge even to find the time to eat that much,” Voigt said in a report from the Digital Journal website.
His potato intake range from being baked, fried, grilled, marinated, mashed, steamed and even having been turned into ice cream for variety.
Voigt is on this Potato Diet mission to help the US Department of Agriculture realize that potato should not be excluded from the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children.
