Just posted this on the other thread and *** but feel I need to tell everyone!! This is my 8th day of eating only white cold potatoes and I cannot zip up my jeans I wore a few days ago. So I gained on the hack. I am so disappointed. I was desperate to do something after the holidays and did something that made it worse.

awww--I saw your post over at ***. I'm so sorry! I guess we are all metabolically different, and as with everything, it doesn't work for everybody. I am so impressed you gave it a full 8 days. I will say, some folks noticed even more weight loss after they stopped, so you will have to look for that!

Fingers crossed Ouizoid but I certainly won't count on it because I have put on weight on the potato hack. I had planned on doing two weeks so really disappointed to say the least but eight days is definitely long enough and today struggling with my jeans was it, the final straw!

I am not sure what to do but thinking about having a normal eating day tomorrow and then back to Dukan to lose. I may return to JUDDD for maintenance but just not sure about anything at the moment. .

I posted on the other hack thread here but I also am UP which surprises me, because the last time I did the potato days I lost and pretty well. I am hoping it was just salt from 4x bacon & eggs on Monday and lots of salt yesterday, rings are tight. I just didn't expect to see THAT number on the scale. I am drinking lots of water today and I did add some egg and whey protein this a.m. and will do potatoes the rest of the day after waiting 4-5 hours. At this point I am the highest I've been in 6 months. Not what I wanted to see!

Good luck C'Marie. Let us know how you get on.

I also wondered if salt was a problem for me. I did mention it on the *** forum and it was said that shouldn't be the case. I have stuck to it faithfully in only eating cold white potatoes with malt vinegar and LOTS of natural sea salt.

I wonder if water weight could be the reason for some of the large losses? Or gain in my case?

Just read another huge success story on ***!

WJS, I don't know. I had lots of salt last time as well and lost. But I did have probably lots of salt in my system starting out since I had bacon & eggs 4x Monday. Now I wish I would've weighed Sunday after my two UUAD Fri/Sat. I have NO idea whether this is leftover from that indulgent time or from whatever else. If I start to see a downward trend I may continue beyond what I originally thought, especially if I can do eggs in the a.m. for protein. Pretty cheap eating plan.

It is cheap, that's for sure. It will certainly be a shock going from only potatoes to loads of steak, chicken protein etc.. if I do go back to Dukan. It costs a fortune!

I don't want to give TMI but I haven't been properly since doing it so perhaps with that problem and all the salt I could be blowing up like a balloon. I certainly feel like one!

@WJS, if by TMI you mean regulation, perhaps you need magnesium. Especially since doing potatoes for 8 days you may have thrown off the potassium/magnesium balance (potatoes are very potassium rich). I use natural calm at night for when that is an issue

just my 2 Cents--I often see substantial bloating before a decrease--probably not over 8 days, but certainly over 4-5 days.

Thanks, ouizoid, I may stay the course for awhile if for no other reasons other than I'm stubborn and it's cheap. Budget is super tight this month.

Thank you C'Marie for the tip. I will take a magnesium tablet before going to bed. Ouizoid fingers crossed.

C'Marie keep us posted will be watching to see how you get on. If you lost the first time chances are you are one that it works well on so most probably will again. Good luck.

dangerously good. YES! I carefully weigh out my SCQ in my bowl before adding bone broth and potatoes, because I could easily lather on a tablespoon per bite!

I have been doing a potato dd about once a week, and it seems to help..at first I was going to use boullion cubes instead of canned broth but someone said that if I could be allergic to the msg in the cubes I should use the broth..one other thing that I changed was I stopped having any gluten..I found gluten free pasta and some other things, so I've kept that up..I know everyone doesn't have a problem with food allergies, but sometimes it's hard to spot a problem until you stop eating some things..I think that the gluten also increased my appetite. so I'm staying the course with those changes, plus I have added a magnesium supplement daily..and OH..one thing that surprised me was at the end of a potato day, I was not feeling very well, so I had a bowl of the gluten free pasta with a little bit of sauce, and I still lost the next day..so I now have a little pasta on my potato days...hope I don't have to stop that, have to see , I guess.

I am out. No more potatoes for me right now. I have not lost one ounce and in the last two days tracking calories 1100/800 potatoes and protein only in the a.m. one of those. The first day I did potatoes only. Got dizzy during the day so I decided to do protein (eggs only and one scoop whey protein) 5 hours before potatoes in the afternoon. I am really puzzled. I lost great the first time I did this. Nothing this time. I feel bloated and like a stuffed sausage in my pants. I cut salt way down yesterday and drank tons and tons of water and herb tea. I am up 5 pounds and need to do something more drastic I think to get rid of it. Seems like if it worked the first time it would work this time. Going back to super low carb/JUDDD until my next hcg round.

LOL, glad it's not just me! Today is an UD so I generously added some SCQ over my steamed broccoli withOUT measuring!

Good for you, C'Marie!!

Phyl, I hope you are feeling much better by now!

Pat, I really love the SCQ, too!! And dangerouse?? Oh yeah!!

WJS, what did you decide to do?

TJ, did you get your whoosh?

Adi, I ate eggs on my last UD & loved it! Thanks for the tip.

Potatoes are working much better for me this time. By keeping to my calories, I'm losing! I'm down 6 & 1/2lbs. in 3 days! WOW!!! I am stunned!!

I am definitely going to start the Potato Hack tomorrow! Most of you seem to have had great success! I have a bag full in the pantry that need to be used. I would love to see more than a 1lb loss next time I weigh in.

Sadly, no whoosh for me Shari but am glad that it is working for you all. I might try it again on DDs next week with a protein breakfast. The experiment that is my slow weight loss continues ..... I would so love to find the magic answer that moves some pounds that I sometimes latch onto anything that sounds vaguely plausible. Still looking.

TJ, I'm sorry you didn't get your whoosh! But, it will happen for you! I just know it!! Slow wait loss makes us impatient; but, it IS weight loss none the less!!! I bounced back up over a pound today. That's because I didn't finish my day with potatoes yesterday! I ate some of the things I'd been missing. Still within my calories tho.

Hang in there! We're rooting for you!

I've been doing a barely hack potato hack, in combo with my altered JUDDD schedule (had to move to 4 down days, 2 up and 1 medium day/week). On DDs, I eat a very small bit of corn flakes and milk with my morning anti-inflammatory, then nothing til a dinner of taters fried in 1 tsp coconut oil and steamed broccoli for dinner. And the weight has been just dive-bombing off. I've also begun the new year gluten free. And what I'm wondering is, if reducing the amount of overall protein I'm consuming is a major contributor to my current losing mode---any opinions about protein as a weight-sticker-on-er, juddd buds? I wonder if that's part of the tater magic...

My main concern with the potato only hack = low protein, and why I'm hesitant to try it myself, is muscle loss.
With such dramatic weight loss, how much of it is muscle & water vs. fat?

This is the PHD theory. I felt that I was eating way too much protein when I began stalling on JUDDD, switched to HFMP and now full on PHD.

Congrats! on Wheatfree. I am reading a lot of success on the PHD site in the comment section w/ going grain free and taming protein.

This was one reason that it took me so long to make the move. I was concerned, but moving carbs up a bit keeping them nutritional, may have been the solution I needed. I was stuck for quite a bit.

and don't forget there is a bit of protein in potatoes--2 g per 100g--but not so much as to trigger gluconeogenesis. The resistant starch in potatoes seems to be important in changing gut flora as well which I think is part of the weight loss magic.

This is all so interesting to my little science brain! I've been coasting on the info here and not reading the *** threads cause they can be not so nice to each other, but I may have to suck it up and go read. I read alot about the Kwasniewski diet a while back --it's very low protein, very high fat --and some of the info about excess protein stuck, though the diet was not sustainable for me. I don't think I'm having muscle loss, as I'm not doing pure potatoes on any days at all, always getting a little extra protein from dairy or veggies or a little meat. As I'm down 7 pounds this week, I'm sticking with it! And I seem to have plenty of energy for exercise, which never fails to amaze me on down days. Thanks for the input and wisdom, juddders!
