PMR Bites Feature Image


Digestive issues like gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) affect millions of people and cost billions of dollars in lost work and health care expenses each year. 

In the search for relief, afflicted individuals often suffer through invasive colonoscopies, dangerous immune suppressing drugs, and even surgical removal of their colon, but what if the the answer was as simple as only eating potatoes for just a few days?

This might sound ridiculous, but according to Tim Steele, author of The Potato Hack, a short-term mono-diet of plainly cooked potatoes can strengthen your immune system, improve sleep, and even lead to weight loss by feeding beneficial gut bacteria, combating inflammation, and resetting your relationship to food. 

Tim isn't even the first person to make these claims, he got the idea for a potato fast after reading about an 1849 diet prescribed to people who were "living too luxuriously" and who became overweight and "dyspeptic" as a result. More recently, both the magician Penn Jillette, as well as an Australian man named Andrew Taylor, have credited potato fasts for helping them to lose over 100lbs each. 

On today's Paleo Radio Bite, we phone in to Tim at his home in North Pole, Alaska, to find out more about his book The Potato Hack and how the much maligned tuber might be a health food after all.
