I can't wait to get my ticker and signature line, will it just show up under my options after I have been a member for a while?

Laura I work as a server, I serve food all all day and I never have time to get a drink of water, let alone eat something! In my other life (a few years back) I worked at a desk with computer for many many years and the snack monster was always standing behind me. I know that desk jobs can ruin your health if you don't have a plan for food, exercise and stress relief. However~I was not working yesterday and my potato day was tough! BUT~ I made it through. UP DAY today, and I'm really glad.

Hey Ouizoid, when you say you "baked" them does that mean you just put them in the crock pot dry? No broth or anything?

I have a crockpot full of whole reds and golds to have ready to go in the fridge. Any idea how long they'll last before they spoil?

DH wants a breakfast... we are going to attempt a potato "oatmeal". Thin mashed potatoes, Torani or DaVinci sf maple syrup or maybe cinnamon & vanilla syrup or maybe sweetener + almond extract? Anybody try this? Maybe we'll try all 3...

I am afraid the thought of potato oatmeal isn't very appetizing to me. BUT hash browns cooked in the George Foreman grill or one of those sandwich makers or even a waffle iron are GREAT. Shred em and cook em.

Could someone summarize for me this potato hack? I've read thru about 4 pages but don't have time to read the other 30ish!

For how long do you do it and on what days UD or DD or both?

Do you have to do it for a certain time for it to be beneficial like every UD/DD for a week? I can only see myself doing it on DD really for the simplicity but would like to know.

I believe I saw there are no oils or fats to be added only vinegar, broth, sf ketchup...what else? I would be interested in shredding and waffle ironing, the roasted ones or the regular old mashed.

What else do I need to know in a nutshell?

I was doing great today until my hubby brought home a tuna sandwich to share.... I was already fragile (hungry) and gave in. Grrrr... But my last 6 meals have been potatoes, so I am not going to sweat it. It was a nice break, I have to say! And we ate it at the beach.... That just has to reduce the calories somehow!

Well the sweetened potato "oatmeal" (more like cream of wheat) works!! We laid out several bowls with a plop of very thick (the syrups thin it out a lot) plain mashed potatoes in each. We then used an assortment of sugar free syrups, spices and extracts and used EZ-Sweets (liquid Splenda) to sweeten. We tried maple and then maple-cinnamon (my fave), vanilla (Hubby's fave) & blueberry-vanilla (good), almond (not so good) and chocolate-almond (really not so good).

Who woulda thunk it? We ate sweet mashed taters for supper!


Adi- We had those for breakfast- very good! I mixed my low carb ketchup with a dab of balsamic vinegar and it was quite good! For lunch we tried potatoes with the infamous malt vinegar- very good too!

Aurora- LOL, the beach makes everything better!

Natasha- There is no set diet other than eat as close to plain potatoes as possible (don't add fats or proteins or other carbs- or as little as possible) for 1+ days. The original hack is to eat until satisfied for multiple days in a row but others here have tried Up Potato Days & Down Potato Days in a row and just doing Down Potato Days between regular UDs. I've seen people eat hot sauce, spices and salsas too.

Thank you. I made them this way last night. Yum! That was my first PDD. It went pretty well and I saw a half pound drop on the scale.

Well, I'm up .8 after eating between 600 and 700 calories in potatoes yesterday. I gain really easily when moving from low carb to not low carb- I think this is temporary water weight. Definitely doing it again today.

I've learned:

Potatoes actually don't curb my hunger like I thought they would. I think I could eat them all day. Afraid to try eating as many as it would take to not be hungry. I'm sure I could eat 4 pounds a day. I'm equally sure I shouldn't.

I love potatoes. Really love them- even cold. My favorites are boiled gold ones.

I really love malt vinegar on potatoes. I've only ever tried malt vinegar on fried fish and in coleslaw- yee-uck! I only bought a bottle because my husband likes it. So that was a pleasant surprise!

Jen. Give it a day or two for the appetite suppression. I find that I will have a strong hunger pain still--very strong--but once it passes, I'm not hungry again for hours. A whole different hunger pattern for me.

I did need less supper than I thought I would- thank goodness, cuz I had already eaten 6 potatoes by then!

Supper was really, really good! It was 4 cups reduced sodium fat free chicken broth, 1 cup water, 4 oz green salsa (I used Herdez brand- from a jar), some garlic and onion powder, a pinch of cumin and 7 fist sized red potatoes, cubed into roughly 1 inch pieces... made 4 servings. I boiled it all for 25 minutes- until the potatoes started breaking up and naturally thickened the soup. It was super yummy!!

I had expected to need a 2nd bowl but I think I'll make it.

This has been my experience as well. I can do this pretty easily when I'm working but it's harder to do when I'm not occupied. Potato day today, work day as well.

I was unprepared for the sharpness of the hunger. I'm a veteran at the hcg 500 calories... but this, it was different. It was agony in places. I had to give in last night an eat yet another potato... so I think I ate about 8.5 potatoes yesterday. I think today I'm not going to worry or count... if I need to eat I will. I have started to lose weight so I think I can relax a bit and go more with my hunger flow.

So... the news:
starting weight: 186.6
187.4
185.2 I've edged into new territory for me!!!

Onto another day of taters! I love them and I'm not even close to being tired of them!

Hi everybody!! I've read all this thread and the super long ones back at *** and I have to say that this works for me. I managed to lose the holiday bloat. I haven't been able to break out of the 160s. I keep gaining and losing the same five pounds, so I really want to kickstart an actual weight loss. Yesterday I ate my potatoes all day, and today I ate some potato skins at TGI Friday's (not fat free of course), but I'm hoping to see another loss or maintain tomorrow. Is anyone up for a four or five day tatter challenge?

Well I have to bow down to the knowledgeable ones here... I had no hunger today. Amazing. You guys know your stuff! After the first day's gain and yesterday's hunger attacks I really thought that this wasn't for me, despite my love of potatoes. I really hope the weight loss continues and my husband is ok with continuing beyond tomorrow night. We'll be out of potatoes then and we'll have to have a little chat.

Tomorrow is potato day #4!!

This definitely works!!! The day before yesterday I did it perfectly. Only potatoes with seasonings. Yesterday, like I said before, I had potato skins at the restaurant and some dried fruit later on, and I'm at 162. I lost 2.5 pounds in two days, and one day I didn't do it to a T

I am finding that potato DD's are becoming the norm for me. I need the variety on UD's to keep with it but am loving the weight loss and ease of my potato days. Not doing all potato days in a row is definitely slowing my weight loss rate but I can stick with it and I like the extra protein and vegetable variety I can work into my diet this way.
I wanted to update you on my DH's potato hack progress. He has been on it for about 2 and a half weeks and has been much more diligent that I have. He is doing the potato hack during the week and then going off of it for the weekends. He is now down 16 pounds. His starting weight was around 230 and he is now 214 and his height is 5'10". It looks like it all came off of his stomach area which is were he need to lose it. I think he is going to hang in there for one more week so will upstate his progress here if he remembers to weigh.
