How do you feel after 4 days of nothing but potato?[/QUOTE]
I ate nothing but potatoes for 14 straight days. As few as 3 per day, as many as 6 or 7. If I [I][B]had[/B][/I]to lose a couple pounds in a few days, that would be my preferred method versus fasting or dehydrating.
I felt great the whole time. Good energy, could still exercise and walked 3 or 4 miles a day.
If all you eat is a few spuds a day and drink normal amount of water, you will definitely lose a few pounds. The plus side is, it will be mostly fat you are losing, not just water as you'd do with a fast or dehydration.
I second the fasting idea. A person can survive just fine without food for weeks, not so much without water. You do not want to faint when it's time to pull that parachute, man.

6 hours exercise split into 3 hour intervals for
Whew, glad you didn't have to dehydrate to do it. As I read this I was concerned since hydration can mess with your blood pressure, and being at altitude can also make that tougher (at least in my experience -- I have low BP so I'm sure dehydration would be a recipe for blackout on my part...)
Apparently skydivers are big proponents of hydration because of the adrenalin factor: [url]https://m.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10151073024224405&_ft_=fbid.10151073024224405[/url]
