Reviews about potato diet
from myself I can add, in order to lose weight you need to drink plenty of water and guarana- all this very well removes slag and toxins from the body
On one guarana you will not live.
You need to eat, otherwise sooner or later you'll move horses.
It is better to eat right then, and there will be no health problems with weight, too. And do not indulge in any overseas stuff. It's real to lose weight on potatoes! Itself checked!
For me in the potato diet, there are some advantages. Firstly, there is no feeling of hunger, I'm really full of potatoes. Secondly, the diet is very economical and requires minimal costs. Third, I drink a lot of water and do not feel thirsty (which is indicated in the article as a lack of diet). As for me, the only real drawback is the lack of diversity in food.
This is my favorite diet, and I want to say that the diversity here in its own enough! If you do not like that you can not add salt first, then you can wait a bit. At the end of the diet I throw every greenery and my favorite seasonings. Potatoes can be diversified in such a way that the potato itself will not be seen there =) But then each has his own. Of course, you need to follow strict rules, like there is one potato, but I assure you, the result will be. It's just that you have to be serious about it.
It should be the same, and I was given a potato diet just during pregnancy – 1 day of release, although I had increased sugar . I should like some doctors to read this article. Now, when I have already fattened my Miracle, I returned to this diet. For 2 month spent 3 potato five days and lost 4 kilograms already. I understand that for someone it's funny, but my weight after the birth of the YEAR stood at around 83 kg! But I'll probably spend dietary weeks less often, or more diverse, because for some time I felt some discomfort in my stomach.
Parents live in the village, so we have a lot of potatoes. Every week before the salary we arrange a forced potato diet. By the way, well-being in this period is not surprisingly improving. Thanks to the article, we now know how to do it right. Thank you!

And on a diet, it's a nice thing.

diet can lose weight. It is a common opinion that potatoes

with full responsibility declare that this method works on men
also. I lost ten kilograms, although from childhood I had more than one problem
What a fine fellow you are! Long sat on a diet to achieve this result? Have you been engaged in sports in parallel or just limited yourself in accordance with this diet?
I'm also inspired by this way of losing weight, I want to try.

I want to write as it is, my wife was carried away by this diet. for quite a short time, she threw off several kilograms and kept her uniform. I tried a fairly large number of diets, with my girlfriends but so far stopped at this. I see that I like the results that she got following the correct instructions. So this diet suited her, that she advises others.
I sit once a month on a potato-kefir diet, for 3 months (ie 3 diet) dropped 11 kg! Diet is easy for me, I'm not hungry, I love potatoes and yogurt)
After giving birth, I could not get rid of three extra pounds. It seems a bit, but they really were noticeable. Even physical exercises did not help. I'm not a fan of grueling diets, so I did not want to make a face. On the Internet I found a diet with yogurt and potatoes. Since both the first and second love, I decided to try. Has sustained three days, as well as it is necessary, as a result on scales a minus two kg. It's very cool, considering that my diet was given easily and my health was excellent.
In general, a good diet, I use it more as a fasting day. Throw off sometimes turns out for three or four days before 1-1,5 kg. Only prefer the usual white potatoes to replace sweet potato – it is more useful)
I would like to ask. Do you go so quickly kilograms or one and a half, and how long does the effect of such a diet? Or is it purely symbolic weight loss for complacency?

She is not that high-calorie as they write, which is logical, because they lose weight on her, which means that there are not so many calories. And in fact, I support this diet and recommend that you write it on your top list, as the result will justify the expectations. I like very much potatoes, but I do not want to abuse too much, only when I have to. For example, when you need to sit down on a diet =)
starch paste, which is digested hard and causes a number of health problems, primarily with blood vessels.
In other words, the less a person consumes food containing starch, the healthier it is.
Many researchers believe that the scourge of mankind "diabetes mellitus" is a disease of the body that is exhausted by plant starch, which depletes the enzyme system. Incomplete cleavage of starch leads to clogging of the circulatory system, all organs and tissues, and microcirculation disorders. Stain insulin, and then absorb the boiled starch, like attempts to extinguish fire on one side of water, and on the other hand – gasoline.
