Start Date: Juddd 4/30, restarted 11/30
Well I just typed a long note and it got erased!!! Errr....

I will just stick with the facts. Yesterday I did not want to eat any more potatoes for dinner so I had wendy's... Yes... I went off my PDD. Had 1/2 pecan salad, junior bacon cheeseburger, small chili with fries shared with hubby, small frosty and later as a snack cereal and milk. And you know what... I don't feel guilty that I did that!!! I didn't drink enough water yesterday and felt dehydrated. It was also my first bread of the week. so I am not sure why such a high jump on my wt.. who knows...

I went to wendy's to purchase a baked potatoe but I came to the conclusion that I don't want to eat just potatoes on my DD anymore. I want more variety on my DD. One big lesson I learned is.... if you feel you are not choosing healthy foods, go on a mono diet such as this and soon all those healthy foods are going to look very appetizing to you!! It's like you need to be punished to be aware of the foods you have access to! It sure helped me appreciate fruits and veggies again!!! when you have only potaotes to eat even a raw onion looks good!! lol

However I feel they have helped me with my cravings and appetite. Thus i will continue to add them to my UD and DD's. Today my appetite is "normal" and I am very surprised. I am very greatful to what potatoes have done for me. I truely hope they continue to add their "magic"







Stats:
12/2 173.5 DD potato only day , about 700 cals no fat, waist 35
12/3 170.5 UD lost 3lbs! regular up day foods about 2000 cals (bloat wt loss)
12/4 170.0 DD lost .5 lbs!!! had several bm's yesterday? no headache pDD 700 cals potatoes only, +++
12/5 168.5 UD lost 1.5lb last of the bloat weight 1800 cals
12/6 169.0 DD gain .5lb after up day, ate 700 cals potatoes only
12/7 168.0 UD lost 1 lb, cals 2000, +
12/8 168.5 UD gain .5, waist 33 dinner at wendy's
12/9 170.0 UD gain 1.5, water wt

Goal is to lose my regained wt! and return to 143 I weighed May '2012!!!

Either way, I'm planning 2 more mostly potato down days, which I find incredibly easy to do. My ongoing plan for now may end up being JUDDDDDing with spuds...

pootie--i have had some muscle cramping on PPD too. comes and goes--I think it is because the potassium/sodium balance is flipped on PPD. Add extra salt to your taters--

Thanks Babs & Pooticus! I can sooooo relate to the diet/binge cycling, and traditional JUDDDing unfortunately exacerbated that for me, which is why I'm sure I stalled, lots of overeating on UDs. I was talking to my partner about that and he said "just try eating normally on up days"--I did let him live after saying that, but geez! And this from a guy who "normally" eats about 3000 calories a day and is whip-skinny...

I realized a while ago I have no idea how to eat "normally"---I know how to diet, and how to relapse, REAL good at those, but normal, not so much. I think trying to normalize eating for me is akin to expecting an alcoholic to be able to have 1 or 2 drinks and then stop. Addictive food behaviors are the hardest to kick because we can't be completely abstinent from food and also stay alive, sigh. So I think we all need to give ourselves a HUGE HUG and pat on the back, for trying to do maybe the hardest thing on earth to physically do, and getting back on the horse over, and over, and over again. We are AMAZING human beings, every single one of us and I am proud to be among you!

Patty, I so understand!! I feel that exact same way. My whole life I've either been losing on a diet or gaining. From the time I was about 7 years old (my first diet). I have NO idea how to remain weight stable! Ha! I almost laughed out loud at my docs when they just said as if it was easy, well just go off low carb and eat to not gain weight. Yes. I'm sure! And I sooooo agree with you about hugs all around cuz what we do is truly the work of saints (Bob Carlisle wrote in a song that "a saint is just a sinner who falls down and gets up!)...

Ouz, I'm sorry you had leg cramps but so good to know it may just be something to watch for with the hack. Do you think I made it worse by using both kosher/sea salt AND potassium salt? Did adding the potassium salt make my sodium too low? I know it's the whole kidney function potassium/sodium ion pump...

I did go off my PH just a bit today, I had a small glass of wine at lunch, but it went to my head immediately and I could only have a few ounces. DF got the rest

I have slight persistent foot cramps that have not changed with the potato hack. I think you are saying to increase salt, not potassium with this method? I hope I have that right.

But I feel tremendous. I feel the weight loss and I feel balanced in a way I haven't had in a very long time.

As far as the eating patterns go, I wonder if doing the one potato meal a day would be of benefit for people who are having a problem with deprivation? I agree that walking into a pattern that causes you to slip back isn't good, not matter what the chemistry of the experiment is like. I think it doesn't get me that way because I've always been someone who would eat one thing for days on end... it comes from living on my own for so long. I see the potato hack as a 'permitted' slip back into a comfort behavior for me, so I get extra warm fuzzies on the hack.

Today I made a lovely chicken dish with potatos and veges... all for DF and Dad. I had already had a great meal of potatos and I've been satisfied all day. I'm food curious, but I don't have any real desire for much. I hope that stretches to sweets!

Oh Ouz! I wish I knew biochem!!! I feel so stupid at times, trying to be conscientious! Ha! So maybe I will try it again or do a semi day doing potatoes for 2 meals and eating an evening meal. Maybe I will try that in a couple of weeks after seeing how I do back on normal LC JUDDD. So much to think about and consider! This is another possible tool in the arsenal!

Su that is so fantastic!! I bet the glass of wine won't hurt you! Can't wait to see what happens tomorrow!

JoyJoy I so agree with you!! Great posts by lovely women!!!

Poot--you are 100% correct--we usually eat extra potassium to get rid of muscle cramps--but here is the thing (I think ) The extra potassium in potatoes is making us excrete extra water which leaves our electrolyte balance off--so try adding a bit more salt and see if that helps--

cal-mag also helps--

Yesterday, I ended up taking a Cal/Mag supp. It may have helped a bit. But I also pounded down 1 1/2 servings of Herb Ox Bouillon and also added more kosher salt. I think I quit using the potassium salt as well and only used sea salt at that point. And I drank lots of fluid in case I was dehydrated.

Thanks so much for figuring it out! Next time, no extra potassium! Doh!

This is such as great topic! I actually wanted to start a thread on the main page about this. "why do we over eat" . I will paste copy this there.

For me it started as a child. my parents over fed me and it seemed like I was always hungry even though I had enough food. My mother would try to always put me on a diet and make me feel like I was overweight. Then I really became overweight... Today I am capable of having a career and a good life. However I can't figure out why I overeat. I eat when I am happy, stressed, celebrating, bored, love cooking shows and learning about food. I love the way it tastes in my mouth. I went to the Overeaters anonymous site and I definetly answered yes to some of these questions.

1.Do I eat when I’m not hungry, or not eat when my body needs nourishment?
2.Do I go on eating binges for no apparent reason, sometimes eating until I’m stuffed or even feel sick?
3.Do I have feelings of guilt, shame or embarrassment about my weight or the way I eat?
4.Do I eat sensibly in front of others and then make up for it when I am alone?
5.Is my eating affecting my health or the way I live my life?
6.When my emotions are intense—whether positive or negative—do I find myself reaching for food?
7.Do my eating behaviors make me or others unhappy?
8.Have I ever used laxatives, vomiting, diuretics, excessive exercise, diet pills, shots or other medical interventions (including surgery) to try to control my weight?
9.Do I fast or severely restrict my food intake to control my weight?
10.Do I fantasize about how much better life would be if I were a different size or weight?
11.Do I need to chew or have something in my mouth all the time: food, gum, mints, candies or beverages?
12.Have I ever eaten food that is burned, frozen or spoiled; from containers in the grocery store; or out of the garbage?
13.Are there certain foods I can’t stop eating after having the first bite?
14.Have I lost weight with a diet or “period of control” only to be followed by bouts of uncontrolled eating and/or weight gain?
15.Do I spend too much time thinking about food, arguing with myself about whether or what to eat, planning the next diet or exercise cure, or counting calories


So are we all addicts? I mean 30 % of americans are overweight... Are we all addicted to food? Is it the chemicals in our food that is making us want more, is it the abundance of it all, childhood trauma??? I would love to hear
people's oppinions on this topic. Why are there skinny people in this world? How come they are not addicted?

Why do you think we overeat?

Ha! Cuttie,

I answered "yes" to all but #12! *snort* (shakes head...)

I think this all falls into that Stephen Guyunet zone of "food reward and obesity".

I'm sure largely, rationalization may be involved...but I simply get pissed off at the thought of having to think of food as an aesthetic..."it's only for fuel" it isn't supposed to ever be about "pleasure". I think that is just total and complete bullcaca. Seriously. And I feel my blood pressure rise thinking of it. Even back in biblical times and through scriptures, people prepared food as an offering of love and respect to their families and to guests. There was a last supper!

So I KNOW that I will not seek to demonize food and make it into some stoic's life. You know? I don't know what precipitated this rant, apologies!!! I think the OA thing maybe got me going!

What do you feel about it? Sorry for the t/j Ouiz!!! Back to the regularly scheduled program!!!

No Pootie. OA pisses me off too. Especially FA. I have a dear friend who has lost more than 100 pounds with FA, and though I am happy for her, she has to bring her own salad to any social event. That is not how I want to live.

There is so much biology pushing the whole eating problem that making it into a narrative about addiction is just wrong IMHO. I see so many "food addicts" lose 100's of pounds with lowcarb because they are changing their bodies' reactions. Not that I haven't felt like an addict often, but you are correct--food reward and our neural circuitry are compromised. Finding ways to hack that circuitry and still love our food is the Grand Experiment here.

Ouz I think I adore you. Ok I know I do!

You said it exactly!! The trick (for me anyway) is in learning tools and strategies to get a "work around" or "hack" that works for me. Little individual me. With my weird ass nutritional needs and restrictions without making me totally tee-totalling loony! OMG. Especially since the cancer shi* and knowing I have a little less than a 30% chance of living through 5 years, I am militant and enjoying as much of life as I can. And the last thing I wanna do is go out of this world cartin' my own salad around to parties! (Now taking a low carb dish to a casual party with friends is one thing...but you know what I mean.) I WANT to enjoy life. I want to lose weight. I want to do what I can to keep the cancer from returning. BUT, I don't want to be so strict as to remove all pleasure food brings into my universe.

So agree with this. This is how I choose to live my life.

Food is good, it is a gift, we are blessed to have it in plenty and I, for one, refuse to turn food or my love of it into the villain.

I don't know what FA is either, Leona?

Just want to add that I this group of JUDDD budds & enjoy all of your banter.

Pooti, I think you are one very special person. I hope this tater addition is the puzzle piece that you need.

I woke up to a .8 loss today, but had to stop today and will have to start over on my tater-hack on Sun 16th through Wed 19th. I don't know what I was thinking but I have two events this week that will keep me from the tater hack.

I do want to report that although I only did one day, I am obsessed with sweet taters and will be using them quite a bit more in my daily meal planning.

And the last thing I wanna do is go out of this world cartin' my own salad around to parties! (Now taking a low carb dish to a casual party with friends is one thing...but you know what I mean.) I WANT to enjoy life. I want to lose weight. I want to do what I can to keep the cancer from returning. BUT, I don't want to be so strict as to remove all pleasure food brings into my universe.
Pooti, your history of cancer definelty keeps things in perspective about what is important in our lives. Enjoying it with food or sacrifiing it all for a few pounds... Good for you that you are doing the best to have it all!

After my up up and away day (UUAD) yesterday with wine, gluten-free pizza (3 slices) and a piece of PIE (no crust) I am up 2.2 pounds from yesterday's low, which was achieved by a 4-day potato hack and then 2 good DDs with one UD in between.

BUT here's the good news - with that 2.2 addition this number is now my bump "up" when it used to be my stuck weight AFTER doing 2 good DD a week. I'm doing a good down day today (DD) but not sure whether it'll be a potato day or not. I had protein powder in my coffee and that's all I've had so far. Depends if my daughter can go out tonight with me or not.

I'm branching out a bit more today. I made a great broth from the organic chicken I had and did the bone broth you all talk about. It is lovely and rich, so I had that with some potatoes and a small amount of chicken. I didn't want to wait to take the fat out, so this would be a lot different than my last week. I'm trying to stay on task until Friday at least so that I will have a decent annual weigh in, but I'm not going to stress too much.

I love the full potato days, but it does do a number on socialization at times.

Good news, C!
Leona, I don't know what FA means. The big number just means there are a bizillion reasons to love this forum.
I'm back on the hack for a couple of days. Potatoes and sweet potatoes this time. Great day eating taters. I missed them.

FA is Food Addicts Anonymous, which is much more strict than OA, which is overeaters anonymous. FA has a food plan and is very very rigorous about what they define as "abstinence"
