Haven't had potatoes in a few months.
Yes, diet can work very well, but I found out that you have to do a lot of homework (and that's good). My doctor just gave me a list of "forbidden" food: I suppose he believed I could survive eating gravel and blades of grass...
BUT I was forced to learn about food, how to count calories, how to build different weekly menus, learn new recipes and so on.
