I've done this potato fast before when it was only discussed online in forums. This book offers clearer guidelines, more variations, explanations and the science behind it all (which made me squeak with geeky glee). The way it's set out is logical and interesting and you can zoom past the science bits of it bores you to tears without missing out on pertinent information. I lost 20kg on it before and then abandoned it as "unsustainable" but the beauty of this book it to show you a way of introducing the hack into your lifestyle and normal life forever. So 4 days in and 4 kilograms down - I'm back on it but in a lifetime manner. And unlike other diets - my tummy is full every day.
Who would have ever thought, the good 'ole' spud would be so famous - in the gut at least. Dad grew them in our back garden in the 1950's and 60s'. I loved mash, but used to have it with tomato sauce, much to my mum's disgust. Now a newly resurrected love has emerged.
