What if you ate only potatoes for two weeks? It was a wild ride! And I lost a stone (14 pounds) Video transcription: What if you only ate potatoes for two weeks? So we're actually going to Tesco right now, to get a bag of potatoes, what's the time? Late It's late It's 11 O'clock Here we go Desiree potatoes, King Edward potatoes, Baking sweet potatoes, white potatoes, Jacket potatoes, sweet potatoes, imperfect potatoes, Maris piper potatoes, baby potatoes, Rudolph potatoes, Jersey royals. Let's just deal with these... So here it is, the first potato. Copped, boiled and ready for tomorrow. And because we all want to know, here's how much I weigh. Exactly 14 stone That's 14 stone with a little bit of beer in that belly. It's currently the 16th of May 2017 and here it is. I've never felt so nervous eating a potato before So I've just got back from work and I'm feeling really rough, which is weird, I shouldn't cos I've bad days of eating before. this just feels like my body's screeming out for this like.... So I've got this baked potato going and I'm boiling tomorrow's potatoes But by the end, I'm hoping to be some sort of like potato god, you know, like some guru Get enlightened by potatoes. Oh god. I usually poop every morning at around 11 o'clock and I didn't go yesterday, it took until 12 o'clock today. That's 25 hours later! Jesus. And I feel like that bit's only going to get worse Let's talk about the Bristol stool scale. A scale from 1 to 7 to show the different types of poops you can have. Obviously, these don't endorse me This is a number 1 Then this is a 3 And then you get up to 7 The 16th I might not have gone, but on the 17th my body complained So, I don't think I'm going to eat many more boiled potatoes because they're just kind of wet and slimy. Like eating slugs all day. I'd rather just eat baked potatoes and pre-prepare them. There's a reason for this. That's Hayley, my partner of 8 years. I haven't told her yet, I'm 3 days in and she doesn't like my stupid ideas 2 weeks of only eating potatoes You're kidding me? I've done it for 2 days already so does that mean you can eat McDonald's chips? No, I can't have chips, I can only have either baked or boiled potatoes, I've got wait until I get home now That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard Matt no, I don't like these fad diets they're ridiculous It is a fad diet It isn't It's stupid, no, that's really annoyed me She was really annoyed until she realised that for two weeks she could eat great food and just watch me suffer So the next few days went fine And then I switched to sweet potatoes, everyone loves sweet potatoes, but if you bake them and eat them whole with their hard leathery skin and their weird, slimy insides. You realise. They're disgusting And then this happened These things tore me apart And the next 4 days was full of one and two's I can't even smell them. It's a potato, it shouldn't be hard. I like these normally Why is it so disgusting? That was absolutely foul I can't. I just literally can't So after that, I changed back to normal potatoes and things became a dream Things were just happening, things were so much clearer I didn't worry about what I was eating next because I knew what it'd be, so I just started getting on with it Yeah the food was boring, but I felt really good, all that until I reached it Full potato enlightenment I'm feeling just awful at the moment I got this bowl full of potatoes, I'm just feeling really like... I dunno. I don't want to say faint, even know I was. I've just got to eat more of these, maybe I'm not eating enough. I dunno. They're doing what they're supposed to be doing, filling my stomach and making me not feel hungry, but because of that, I can tell I'm just not eating enough anymore. My stomach has shrunk so much I'm not feeling very hungry. Feeling very hungry? God I can't speak That's a lot of weight Things were pretty bad I couldn't function properly anymore and me and Hayley were arguing So over my last potato, let's talk about what I've learnt Honestly, the hardest thing wasn't really the cravings, which were pretty bad at first It was just really boring And that's coming from someone who obviously is living in Britain and has everything in the world around me It made me grateful for the small foods that I didn't really like, which I've just taken for granted Because right now, I'd kill for them I just never realised the gravity of the luxury I started feeling really lethargic and I just couldn't work as well So This is my last potato How big is that shot glass? Cheers Thank god that's over This feels like a big thing, even know it isn't I'm just about to eat some cheese Oh my god

Duce Duce Magoo : You weigh yourself in stones? As much as 14 stones? Are we talking gravel? Like 14 tiny pebbles? Or boulders? Do you weigh a handful of ounces or thousands of pounds? What kind of measurements are these? Do you weigh yourself on a giant libra scale, you stand on one side and then pile rocks on the other and count the difference?

Ryan N : A study on satiation was done, and potatoes, per calorie, came out on top. Since you weren't adding any butter, cheese, etc, you were probably crash dieting yourself. Also, though people typically think of salt as a negative, some amount of it is needed for optimal function, and that may have also been contributing to your issues with being lightheaded/lethargic
