I think some of you (or maybe all) watch you tubers talking about their diet. (I show you my diet in this video you’ll see what I eat on a normal day ) Maybe you’ve seen High Carn Hannah, who just finished her potato diet. It turned into a massive hype, she even made it to the Australian newspaper. But why the hype? Let me explain things the way I see it.
What is the potato diet?
It’s a diet for 30 days, in which you’re only allowed to eat potatoes. Yes you can have some greens on the side, but the focus is on the potatoes.
Potatoes are your source for energy, and you’ll be eating them every meal. All kinds are allowed.
Why would you do this?
Eating one type of food can help your digestion. Your bowel has to digest only one type of food, what makes it a lot easier to digest. It can also work as a detox : it clears your body from toxins. It can help get rid of stomach pain or bad skin. Not for everyone, but for a lot of people.
Why the hype?
I think it’s because it’s something new and maybe ‘extreme’. A lot of people can not imagine to eat only potatoes for a whole month. Hannah also had great results so a lot of people are curious and want to try it themselves. I think it’s the same as it was with Freelee’s ‘banana island’ a few years ago.
Am I gonna try it?
No. I love potatoes, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t want to eat them for a whole month. I don’t see the benefits of that. I love to eat out; to eat with friends or cook with my love. I don’t think I’ll be happy to do this for such a long time. But maybe I’ll try it for a week.
What do you think about the potato diet? Healthy or not? Should I try the week version?
