[October 27, 2010]  MOSES LAKE, Wash. (AP) -- The Washington state man who's on a 60-day all-potato diet wishes he would have set a goal of one month instead of two.

Chris Voigt told the Tri-City Herald that -- as good and healthy as potatoes are -- there's only so many ways they can be prepared. And, about halfway through his tuber diet, he's had them boiled, baked, steamed, grilled, fried, marinated and mashed.

The Moses Lake man is executive director of the Washington Potato Commission and is on a mission to prove spuds aren't junk food.

For variety Voigt soaked one potato in pickle juice. And his wife made him potato ice cream.
