RE: Morbidly obese. Desperate for advice on where to start.
The potato diet does work (I tried it out for a few weeks), but to say that Penn Jillete lost 100 pounds with it is misleading at best. He lost like 10 pounds with it, then hired a team of dickheads to design him a healthy diet so he wouldn't have to count calories.

And yes it's a short term diet if you follow it to the letter. When I did it I took protein shakes because eating nothing but starches is a good way to burn up a lot of muscle tissue.

I also ripped ass like a fucking paper mill for about four days worth of the diet.

All in all, I give it about a 3/5. I lost about three pounds of fat in a week, but I craved meat like mad.

If I were going to design a "mindless" cheap diet, it would be something like :

Sunday : Fast all day
Tues : Potato Diet Day (with 80 grams protein shake)
Thurs : Potato Diet Day (with 80 grams protein shake)
Sat : Potato Diet Day (with 80 grams protein shake)

The other days you'd eat normally.
