    How do you feel after 4 days of nothing but potato?
    I ate nothing but potatoes for 14 straight days. As few as 3 per day, as many as 6 or 7. If I hadto 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.

    Good luck!

    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.

    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: https://m.facebook.com/note.php?note...51073024224405
