Here is Tatertot's most recent post over at *** about his most recent potato experiment.

Quoting:

"Hey, Guys! After reading PKlopp's 'Epic Fail' post, I had to jump in and tell you what I have been up to.

As you may know, I'm a small-time potato farmer. Farmer's market and word-of-mouth kind of operation in my spare time. I haven't eaten potatoes in almost 3 years as they were not on the low-carb plan.

I lost a lot of weight in 3 years on primal, but stabilized around 210lbs (I'm 6'). I tried hard to lose another 10, but it always came right back on.

I did the potato diet from Oct 1-14 and lost 10lbs. Since then, I have stabilized at 198 and had been +/- 3lbs of 198 for 4 full weeks. On Nov 17th, I started another potato diet, more of an experiment, and partly because I didn't want to have to eat my wife's pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving day.

My experiment: 8 people (me included). Each person was given 20lbs of potatoes (variety - Seed Potatoes - German Butterball PotatoesOrganic). Each person had approximately 40 potatoes and was instructed to eat nothing else. Water, coffee, tea to drink; salt, pepper, apple-cider vinegar for spices. Here are the results:

Person 1 (me) - Starting weight 198, end weight 193, -5lbs, 6 days
Person 2 - M - Starting weight 181, end weight 175, -6lbs, 6 days
Person 3 - M - Starting weight 264, end weight 260, -4lbs, 5 days
Person 4 - M - Starting weight 210, end weight 202, -8lbs, 7 days
Person 5 - F - Starting weight 151, end weight 145, -6lbs, 8 days
Person 6 - F - Starting weight 140, end weight 134, -6lbs, 8 days
Person 7 - F - Starting weight 132, end weight 128, -4lbs, 7 days
Person 8 - F - Starting weight 124, end weight 119, -5lbs, 9 days

Pounds per day:
Person 1 - .83
Person 2 - .66
Person 3 - .80
Person 4 - 1.1
Person 5 - .75
Person 6 - .75
Person 7 - .57
Person 8 - .55

Everybody was so happy they didn't gain over Thanksgiving! Some are continuing, all have said they will do it again. Notice the biggest guy of the bunch ate his potatoes faster and lost less than everybody. The smallest of the group ate her potatoes slowly and lost fairly slowly, but as a percentage it was awesome."

so--not a totally randomized experiment or anything, but more info about how it is working for some peeps.

Library Girl--some of those people over at *** are downright vicious. Makes me very very very happy to be in JUDDD land, lol

So he only ate potatoes on Thanksgiving? No, I guess it ended before then, but not sure how he avoided his wife's pumpkin pie, lol.

I ate exactly all I wanted on Tday, and two days later with family, including all kinds of desserts and still lost weight.

Ok, spent hours and hours reading through the two *** threads today I'm definitely going to try this on my DDs, though I'm also wondering about calories. I bought three different kinds of potatoes-russet, yellow, and red. All three have 110 calories listed per potato in the nutritional section, though the russet is about double the size of the other two kinds I do not have a food scale-wonder how sensitive my regular scale is

Starting tomorrow

I eat potatoes on DD quite a bit, but usually with some grilled chicken and a laughing cow. Think I will try potatoes only starting Wednesday (and on DD only). I find potatoes very yummy and filling so it should be nbd! Hope to see some scale movement because it has been quite a while.

I could not have been successful without a scale!!!!!!!!!!

I would be driven crazy to have to stuff food into measuring cups and then scrape it back out, etc. I know myself well enough to know that... much of the time I wouldn't actually go to that trouble. I'd just *eyeball* it and guess. And that's a recipe for failure, slowly but surely. Or at least very, very, very slow weight loss. LOL

But with a scale, you just pop a handful of food on it, add a sprinkle more or take a smidge back off, and presto! The exact amount quickly and easily.

Truth be told, the scale I use isn't even a kitchen food scale. It's a postal scale, but I like it tons because it has a larger flat top weighing surface.

Okay, you guys got me. I picked up russets and malt vinegar on the way home. I've measured out 12 ounces (2 small - medium potatoes) and baked them. This comes to 180 calories. I'll not eat breakfast, have one for lunch at work and a spare in case I get hungry, then either have the second for dinner, or cook a third when I get home. I'll let you know how it goes.

I've got one large and two small/mediums in the crock pot with beef broth. I think that's more than 500 cals, but I went ahead and put it all in.

Wow.... sounds interesting. I'd definitely consider it, but with arthritis potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplants (nightshades) are no-nos. I wonder if a certain type of them would be better than others if I wanted to try it?

Here is the thing about taters. They are SO satiating, that it gets hard to eat more by the end of the day.

I kind of have to force myself by the end of the day.

I see this as an ongoing hack --like maybe a week or so of taters only once a month, and then seeing about using taters as a DD food. It depends on how it all keeps going.

The original Potato Diet guy lost 22 lbs in 6 weeks of taters only and radically changed all his cholesterol numbers (and stopped snoring!--which started back up after he resumed normal eating).

I'll keep y'all posted

Taters are my #1 comfort food. They would really work well for a down day, thanks for posting.

y'know--how interesting. I too am sensitive to nightshades, but somehow potatoes in isolation are not setting me off, at least so far. hmmm. how weird.

Oui, I wondered if eating them separate and apart from everything else might work. Do you struggle with joint pain also?

I also have arthritis, as my father before me and his mother before him. And I've never noticed a dime's worth of difference whether I ate nightshades or not. Now changes in the barometric pressure as the weather systems move through is another matter.

Pat, I'm the same way. When the pressures change from the weather systems, I cringe! Like today, we had a cold front move thru & by 10pm, my hips were not happy!! My poor mother is so crippled by arthritus in her hands. But, I haven't noticed any particular food causing me problems. Maybe I need to pay more attention?

This whole potato experiment is fascinating to me. I will watch how it works for others here & maybe try it myself one day. I'm pretty happy with the way I've been eating...........so, I may not want to mess with success, ya know?

Okay, I'm sold. I'm going to be at Sprouts tomorrow for a produce run, and now potatoes are on my list. Everyone who knows me will think I'm nuts - I haven't had a potato (excepting for Thanksgiving) in almost a year! I even have family in the potato farming business! Maybe now they'll speak to me again.

I had the same problem at first ... if you click on forums, you can then search for the "eat moar taters" thread. (moar spelling intentional!)

Interesting. I wonder if you could make a modified potato soup. I usually make mine with chicken broth and garlic/onion powder. Usually I would I add some sort of fat...cheese, butter, cream or cream cheese. But, maybe it wouldn't be so bad without the fat?? I figure it's worth a try. I looove potato soup.

So one DD with just 700 Kcal Potato (ish), I did have a bad weekend with 3 uncontrolled days, but, wait for it.. I'm down 5 lbs this morning!

This is intriguing, I'm going to do a Potato only UD and see where that takes me? I'm just interested in what is going on.

UD for me currently is 3000 Kcal, I've just been shopping and have a variety of Potatoes on my desk, some already cooked in cans to make it easier at work. It's a big pile and tots up to 2100 Kcal, I can not see how I can eat more, but i will try :-)

report back tomorrow

OK, you guys had me craving potatoes all day after reading this post this morning
so.... I went to the supermarket and bought a bunch of chat potatoes (little baby potatoes). I put just a little oil in the tray and tossed them with onion powder, salt, dried mixed herbs, garlic granules and roasted them. Served with a little mustard and SF tomato sauce they were mmm-mmm
Feel nice and full for bed. And at 300g cooked, they worked out to be about 280cal so not too bad at all. Thanks for sharing!
