Can You Lose Weight If You Eat Only Potatoes?

Can you lose weight if you eat only a high-carb food, specifically only potatoes? Yes you can. In fact many people have successfully tried this trick.

Here’s one example, Andrew Taylor, 36 years old and Australian. He ate nothing but potatoes for six months (!) and dropped a whopping 94 lbs (43 kg).

He feels that the diet has helped him control his food addiction, in addition to losing weight.

Losing weight on high carb?

So how is it possible to lose weight on a high-carb diet? And does this not invalidate the simplified carbs -> insulin -> obesity theory behind low-carb diets? Some opponents have claimed that.

Indian State Imposes “Fat Tax” – Here’s the Problem

The Indian state Kerala imposes what the media calls a “fat tax” on junk food served at fast food restaurants to combat obesity. And while it certainly is good that this tax is hitting junk food, the name “fat tax” is a quite misleading.

BBC News: Why Has an Indian State Imposed a ‘Fat Tax’?

Kerala is the first state in India to introduce a “fat tax” on burgers, pizzas, doughnuts and tacos served in branded restaurants.

All these products are equally full of bad carbs, and on top of that people usually drink sugar water with them. So the tax could conceivably just as well be called a “carb tax”.

The word choice shows how outdated paradigms about fat being the cause of obesity still pervade. Is there a better name for the tax? Maybe a “junk food tax”?

“I Just Feel Too Terrific with the LCHF Lifestyle”

Challenge

So far this year more than 40,000 people have signed up for FREE guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, troubleshooting tips, etc., via the two-week low-carb challenge.

What could happen if you were to take it? Here’s feedback from this week:

Feedback

Hello Andreas,

I’ve enjoyed the challenge and lost about 7 lbs (3 kg). I do miss my cereals and fruit and find it more expensive to eat this way – also with a family. I am not a natural meat eater and fish is also expensive – previously I would eat more pulses which makes meals cheaper. I do have more energy though and feel pretty good and will continue perhaps in a less severe form.

Thank you so much for developing this and I wish I had found out years ago but then fat was being portrayed as bad to eat, i.e. butter, cream, etc. I am now 60 and feeling great! Keep on developing those recipes.

Best wishes,
Jackie

Prevent Obesity by Starting Before Birth

12BRODY-tmagArticle

To prevent childhood obesity, it may help to start before birth:

The New York Times: To Stem Obesity, Start Before Birth

Things that may help include both the mother and father staying at a good weight, breastfeeding the infant and avoiding antibiotic use for children unless absolutely necessary.

Perhaps most importantly, try to get rid of bad foods from the house, and model good eating habits. Because…

“If you do it, they’ll do it,” David S. Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Children’s Hospital Boston, said. “Young children are like ducklings, they want to do what their mothers [and fathers?] do.”

“I Feel Better and My Head Feels Clearer”

Before and after

Rebecca became addicted to sugar already as a child, and since then it has been something that she has battled throughout her life. But it wasn’t until she read Bitten Jonsson’s book “The Sugar Bomb In Your Brain” (Swedish only) that she finally understood that she was a sugar addict.
