A few decades ago DH watched a show that said in terms of nutrients, vitamins, micro-nutrients potatoes are the way to go if you can only eat one food - and want to retain your health - for an extended period of time. I know because I have heard about it several times a year subsequently.

I am very curious to see whether the DD-potato-only crowd sees success or if you have to eat potatoes every single day. (I am a bit about the idea of eating enough potato on UD.)

Looking forward to your updates. Gotta love a WOE that allows this kind of experimentation.

Kettleboy, five pounds evicted is amazing!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

AARRRRGGGGHHH!!!!!! Went to bed at 11:30 last night. Unlike some, I fall asleep quickly and sleep like a baby UNLESS.. The cat wakes me up at 3:00 am. So I got to thinking about potatoes and got so excited I got up and baked a dozen medium-sized spuds.

I think this is a hoot, but do remember a few years ago when I was doing some general *dieting* eating a baked potato with salt & pepper and Butter Buds sprinkled on, with plain yogurt mixed in to moisten it all. I like sour cream on potatoes, but I actually like plain yogurt just as well. There's something about that tangy yogurt-y taste with the salted potato that appeals sometimes. So I picked up some low fat yogurt yesterday. I'm all set for a POTATO DOWN DAY.

Ummmmm.. no. She is an affectionate stinker who wanted attention.

I'm going to wait until I catch her taking a good nap in a spot of sunshine today and go wake HER up!

I've tried that. Many times. They just roll around with pleasure, allow you to give them their due amount of worship, gently indicate they have had enough, then remove your hand if you don't stop the petting/tickling.

I'm going to keep the Potato plain, just salt, vinegar and pepper, as per the original research.

Have read reams about this so far, something is happening in the body with this approach, but no one seems to know for sure what. Some of the claims of hunger reset are interesting, and really the reason I'm trying this, as currently I can do a good DD, but completely lose the plot on UD's. not an issue from a weight perspective, as the weight is gone on the next DD, but once I've binged out I feel awful, which you would think in itself would stop me, but it does'nt?

I'm in today! I don't have a scale but I got the measurement info for size/calorie ratios so that will give me a ball park estimate of how many calories I'm eating today (a DD). Bringing the kids to school and then I'm going to make my first potato

I have two medium potatoes that I crockpotted all night, in a bag. Now how much and how often do I eat today (DD)? I'm kinda hungry.

Soooooo, after 3 full days of nothin but taters, I am down 5 lbs! Granted, some of that must have been thanksgiving bloat, but considering that no decarbing was involved (instead, WAY more carbs), I am super impressed. I will keep this up til Thursday--and then do regular food for three days as I will be out of town, and then back to Taters for a while longer. So so interesting!

I'm not JUDDDing on the tater diet any longer. Too hard. I am not really counting either. I am eating taters at 10, 2, and 6. 2 or 3 little yukons or one big russet. I use vinegar, salsa, broth and spices and that is it.

KB--wouldn't it be interesting if potatoes helped with UD's??

Because we have two eating out events this week, on UDs, I'm going to try and do the potato hack within the parameters of JUDDD. But I am thinking of eating potatoes on my UDs as much as possible- just bigger quantities/with toppings like bacon bits and ICBNB spray etc. I started my potato experiment this morning, after having a surprise loss of 1lb from my UD yesterday. I have no idea what the scale is going to do tomorrow-this is so much fun


Ok, first potato consumed lol. I had a small, 2 inch, white peeled potato shredded and dry fried (with Pam spray). I added fresh ground pepper, salt and then served with 1tbsp of ketchup. According to an online calculator the potato is approximately 117 calories and the ketchup was 15=132 calories so far for my DD.

I have eaten one of my russets...but no idea how many calories. Anywhere from 135 to 168, depending on what is a medium or small russet...and how the heck do you measure diameter...I measured around the potato, not the width and it came to over 7 in!!! I'm quite sure it's not what they meant by diameter, because it's a pretty small russet (not like a new potato, but certainly not huge)...I need a scale pronto!!

Will be intersting to see how the people adding stuff to the Potato get on, some of the research I've seen would mean that this would not work with any added fat, protein or simple carb? I watch with interest.

I had to ask my husband how to measure diameter and he asked what I was measuring-didn't tell him why I was measuring potatoes at 7am in the morning I'm eating white and red potatoes starting out and they're round so easy to measure diameter. Russets would be harder to measure because of their shape

From the *** threads it sounds like some went just potato/salt/pepper/vinegar, while others added things like ketchup/mustard/soy sauce etc. I'm going to try and keep it to a minimum but will use ketchup and mustard sparingly (like once a day). I'm keeping a food log for this in my lcf journal so I'll be able to look back and see exactly what I ate during this experiment

I ate only spray butter and salt and pepper...plus they were boiled in beef broth (cubes) all night. So far I am not getting the satiating factor. I could eat another one, easy. Pretty soon all my DD calories will be met, and Me Sooo Hungry!

Hope to report later that things have looked up a bit. I will fast till 1ish at least, because if I don't I'll have no more calories to eat!

I'm neutral right now-not hungry but not feeling full either. Kind of like how I feel about an hour after I eat broth or soup. I'll probably have my second small potato at noon.

I'm starting to feel kinda neutral, I guess. To be honest, I've never been fully attuned to my body, as far as nutritional needs...

I decided against testing this because I hate to break my NK rhythm right now. So, I am excited to watch all of my JUDDD budds be the test subjects and if all goes well for the budds, will be looking forward to trying this when I reach a stall.

Ouizoid, I think you have the right idea! I believe that the calorie deficit is there without having to do JUDDD and it only complicates the "single food" WOE to try and fit into the JUDDD parameters. It just seems to me that to be able to eat 1500 cals in potatoes on UD, may be a chore or more effort than is necessary.

I am trying a potato DD today but when I weighed the big baking potato I had it limited me to one potato for the whole day (15 oz * 26 cals uncooked = 390 cals). Well I hope it is very filling because it is not THAT big LOL. I brought half to work and will eat the other half tonight.

I'm still doing ok but I've got some weird high energy going on. Sitting at my desk my legs can't stay still and my feet keep tapping the floor-is there such a thing as getting high on potatoes? I seriously feel like doing laps around my house right now lol.

This is really interesting, and I was wondering what the potato thing was I've been seeing in some menus around here already.

I love a baked potato, cold, with some salt. Or a pinch of ketchup.
I might just give this a try

I'm cracking up!

Yeah, the kitchen scale is a Godsend! I baked potatoes in foil early this morning. Just unwrapped one, still warm, used a paring knife and scraped the skin away 'cause this is one of those rough-skinned russets, and I don't like that skin. Otherwise, I eat potato skin. Anyway, popped it on the scale after I'd skinned it and.. PRESTO! 4.5 ounces. Period. I entered it into ****** along with my 2 tablespoonfuls of nonfat yogurt I topped the potato with, added a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and my tummy is good to go for quite awhile.

Now, I'll be an interesting experiment because I'm eating potatoes, but also putting half & half in my coffees. So carbs and fat this DD. That's supposed to be a big NO-NO. But I'll be adhering to the overall calorie numbers, so that's supposed to be a good thing.
