I know it is so crazy! The only thing that I have found somewhat reassuring after so many years of avoiding carbs is that wheat still makes me hungry. I also wonder if it is that I don't eat them with fat that makes my body handle the potatoes in a different way. I am sure some of the more well read JuDDD posters out there understand it. For me I am just happy I have found such a filling food to help keep me happily under my calorie allotment (some days anyway)

Down another 2 pounds!!

I had a bowl of potato soup, and then about 4 hours later a big lean hamburger with condiments and a little lettuce. I got some sweet potatoes yesterday so today I'm experimenting with that. So far, so good!

I am doing my first Potato Down Day. I lost .5 this morning after an UD yesterday. I am wondering how to count calories as I didn't weigh anything. My bag of potatoes said 1 potato was 100 calories but that cannot be right b/c some were small and some were large.

B - 1 scrambled egg 60c 1 small potato diced/roasted w/ ketchup ?
L - 1 medium baked potato w/ onion/garlic powder, pepper and A1
D - Either another baked potato or shredded potatoes in the waffle iron

I did the egg b/c I know that protein keeps me satisfied and was worried I'd get hungry with just the potato. I scrambled it w/ just a spray of canola oil. I know I'm not following to the T but just testing the Potato waters!

When I do the potato days I always have eggs and coffee with HWC for breakfast and then potatoes the rest of the day with no problems.

Well, it is the middle of nothing but potatoes day #5 for me. I have very little hunger now but I don't seem to be losing anything more. So I have had

After day 1- small gain (attributed it to water weight)
after day 2- lost the gain + an additional 1.4 lbs
after day 3- same
after day 4- gain .4

My energy level is ok. Not fantastic but not "late hcg round" low either like it was. I feel bigger. Is it more water weight? I should have a few days still til ovulation time... ???

Advice? Still doing taters today. Probably will tomorrow too then stop and go back to my hcg round. I'm hoping I have a water whoosh when I go back to hcg.

I'll have to count my remaining taters tonight and see if I have enough for tomorrow for both my husband and me for 1 more day.

My husband on the other hand seems to be losing well. Low carb was failing him so this is a blessing. If we don't have enough taters for 2 tomorrow I may just silently send him to work with taters and eat my hcg lunch and then by supper time he'll just have to finish his day off with taters.

Natasha--if you peel the potatoes, the gas problem goes away--

the weight loss is not linear with the potato hack. It can take 3-5 days to show up. If you stick with it, it will happen

Well, we still have enough potatoes for one more day... I'm hoping to see a loss in the morning. My husband broke into Onederland... it's been quite awhile since he has seen under 200!

For me personally I found that peeling the poataotes made no difference in my gas issue BUT I found it was the gold potatoes that were the problem. I ran out and was just eating plain old russet potatoes with no issues. Bought some more gold ones and gas again so I will buy no more of them and stick to the russets. Everyone's digestive system is different so experiment and see.
I am doing regular DD's and using the potato day on my UD with good results although I have modified it to eat eggs for breakfast. I am down to 140.4 this morning after an UD.

Adi, I have read where you make potato soup and I'm trying a potato day again..
so I have made a pot of soup using diced potatoes and onions..added celery flakes..and when it was done I put in one tbsp of LF sour cream..also tossed in a tsp of good bacon bits...this is kind of close to how I made the regular, so I am looking forward to lunch..seems like you are doing great with your potato days.

I am down 1.5 after my first potato down day!! This go round on Juddd Ive mostly been losing after UD which was weird. I ate regular russets with skin on. I dont want to do it on UD...will that work? DH thought Id lost my marbles when I told him I was going to do the potato day. My cholesterol has always been around 210. Haven't had it tested on about 2 years but plan on it next month. Should I be worried? I may do it again tomorrow and try peeling them. I want to do the hash browns though in waffle iron for breakfast!

For DD potato soup I use gluc to thicken and it is just mashed potato, gluc and broth. On UD's I make more like what you have described minus the bacon bits. I might do a potato DD today afterall since I have a potato here at work and plenty of broth cubes. I always have a bag of gluc in my purse too.
I am having my best luck though with regular DD's and using potatoes on UD's.

This definitely works. I'm a believer now. In five days I've lost five pounds and I'm out of the 160s just barely. I'll try to get to ten days. I definitely want to be firmly into the 150s by then.

Congrats on your weight loss everybody. This thread is really inspiring!

186.6-start
187.4- up .8
185.2- down 2.2
same
185.6- up .4
184.4- down 1.2

Total loss after 5 days of potatoes: 2.2. I bet I'm holding a lot of water weight too- my fingers are a bit tight this morning.

It is what it is- I'm content with it. Onto a 6th day of potatoes!

My favorite is the mexican potato soup... dice potatoes into chunks and add to a pot of 4 cups fat free chicken broth and 4 oz salsa (green is better but red is good). Cook for awhile. Put some of the cooked potato chunks into a blender with 1 cup of water and puree and add to the pot. That makes the creamy thick part. Add a few dashes of cumin, pepper and garlic powder.

I've also thickened it with guar gum but then it hit me that potatoes are a great thickener... I should use them!

The Mexican soup sounds delish Jen!

Don't get discouraged by the smaller loss. The first time I did this about a week ago I only lost one net pound, and this time I lost five. I'll definitely try to stick to it for 10 days... if not 14 if I keep on losing weight like this

I had the best workout at the gym yet- also my first workout on potatoes! Wow- what a difference. I was able to work harder and faster for longer!

PIZZA!

My newest creation is sliced cold boiled potatoes laid on a pan covered with nonstick foil and baked at 400 & flipped until both sides are browned- takes a good while- then each slab is topped with a spoonful of the lowest calorie pizza sauce I can find.

Oh, and I lost .6 this morning! Tomorrow is Potato Hack Day #8!

Congrats on the loss and I think this sounds like something I would like so I will try that tomorrow on my UD since today's DD is already planned.

Gained a bit today but I went to the gym yesterday and I just about always gain the next day. Had Green Mexican potato soup for lunch and potato pizza slabs for supper. My pizza sauce was only 25 calories. Onto Potato Hack Day #9! I'm planning on potatoes with vinegar-ketchup for lunch and Sweet Potatoes with DaVinci splenda sweetened maple syrup for supper. Probably the same lunch or leftovers on Tuesday and potatoes with sauerkraut and mustard for supper... then I think I'm done with potatoes for awhile. That'd be 10 days in a row. I think I've gotten potatoes out of my system- french fries don't even sound tempting!

Potato DD for me today I boiled three small russets this morning and fork mashed them. I've eaten 1/3 of it already with A-1 sauce and will eat the rest, probably late afternoon, and then call it good for the day, except for a couple cups of diet hot cocoa.

I love seeing so many great results, and some great new recipes.

I almost chose a PDD today but I am cooking tacos for DH so will just eat lots of the salad and taste of meat with lots of salsa.

But Thursday I am looking forward to a Potato DD.

Argh... 183.8 AGAIN today. Today is my last potato day (#10). My losses have not been what I expected. I am hoping that I have added some water weight that I'll lose when I stop eating the carbs and return to my HCG P2 diet.

Jen, my hat's off to you for ten potato days! I do think you'll drop some water weight and see another few lbs down. Congrats!

Jen that is a lot of potatoes! Thanks for posting your recipes and progress. I am having a PDD today. Alternating these with regular UD's has been working fairly well for me but I may do the three day hack to get to goal this month. I will have to see what comes up for social events this week. Eating out would be nice too.
