Potatoes, as it turns out, have all the amino acids and vitamins you need.
To be specific, white potatoes have all the necessary amino acids and sweet potatoes have the vitamins you need so you don’t get scurvy, the disease that once caused sailors’ teeth fall out before they died a horrible death.
But you can't just have a couple of potatoes a day and be done.
Popular Science says you have to eat a LOT of potatoes to survive, if that’s all you were eating. To be exact, “34 sweet potatoes a day, or 84 white potatoes (or) you would eventually run into a calcium deficiency. You would also need 25 white potatoes a day to get the recommended amount of protein.”
The takeaway here is you could eat one thing your whole life, but why would you want to?
No offensive to Taylor, but potatoes all day every day sounds horrible. And also, a nutrient deficiency waiting to happen in the long run. So be a responsible person. Eat a balanced diet.
And if you can’t, then and only then, eat a potato-based diet…
