60 days, 1200 potatoes

 20 potatoes a day
October 21, 2010

Got a favorite food? Something you love so much, it's almost like a belief? Chances are your fanaticism still won't hold a candle to that of Chris Voigt. The spud-loving executive director of the Washington State Potato Commission has pledged to eat nothing but potatoes (20 a day!) for two months -- a project he started on October 1 and will wrap up on November 29.

It's the potatoes health properties that Voigt hopes to highlight in his campaign. If his Facebook page and website are any indication, it's working. Recently, he's even gotten some videotaped words of encouragement from Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire. AOL Health talked to Voigt about his experiment -- from how he's compensating for these deficiencies to what he's learning and appreciating along the way.
