A more pleasant, in my opinion, but more troublesome method is to buy green plantains, slice thin, and dry them...

The dried plantains are almost pure RS by weight. 1 plantain produces about 100g worth of RS chips. Recommended intake is 20-30g/day.
...
Green bananas by comparison contain about 15g RS per small banana--and green bananas are not very tasty. The better they taste, the less RS. A fully ripe banana has 0 RS.
Thank you, that's why I asked about the green bananas because I thought the RS would be hugely reduced by serving them hot or re-warming them.

We can't readily purchase Bob's Red Mill products in the UK but I can probably obtain plantains from somewhere and dry them to try this out. I might even blend them into a dehydrator cracker mix (typically a mix of linseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds) and see if that turns out reasonably well.

Hello all! I have been reading this thread bit by bit for the last few months and I am intrigued and have thought many times to try it, but haven't. I plan to read back over all the info but could those of you who have had success answer a question. What exactly do you do when not eating potatoes to maintain your losses? Do you do a 2 week potato diet then go to LC or another plan or eat whatever you want? Are some of you JUDDDing and only doing potatoes on DD? I think I read somewhere that Keytone does potatoes only during the week then off on weekends...what do you eat on weekends? Sorry if I am overthinking this, but I would like to try the potatoes, just not sure what to do to maintain any losses. Thanks for your help!

In my 3 trials, I simply eased into my regular eating (paleo lc) and I never had issues. I think if you were to eat whole foods, abstaining from processed food, you should be just fine. I would also be careful about how much fat if you are tater fasting for more than 2 days.

I am a bit disappointed they didn't mention anything about potatoes. But maybe this will put it more out there. Now there will be no green bananas in the supermarket LOL.
My only reservation about this particular suggestion would be the butter but it depends on WHY you're interested in trying the RS or hacking. Thankfully I do not have BG issues so my primary aim is mobilizing fat to utilize insulin. Butter would surely sabotage that goal.
I don't know if adding butter would reduce the "insulin sensitivity" mechanism but I feel like it would.

Yenni, I think they were just talking about taking RS as a supplement and not hacking. I do agree with you on the adding fat for stoking weight loss, it doesn't work in the tater fast.

I only do potato DD's. But I am interested in maintaining with a higher calorie count on DD's. Plain cold boiled potatoes with salt. Yukon golds

You could actually use potatoes (I know they have them in the UK!). Dried, raw potato has almost as much as the plantains, but they aren't crunchy when dried, but hard and leathery. You could dry them, grind them, and add to your crackers.

Plantains are probably easier, but give both a try and let us know. The few times I tried to dry potatoes, they turned kind of gray and got really hard. If done in a dehydrator, it may work better.

I tried drying raw potato chips in my dehydrator but was not pleased with the results. Now cooked in the microwave until crunchy is another story but that defeats the purpose.

That's kind of what I thought...see if you can get plantains. Buy the biggest, greenest ones you can find.

Cut the tips off each end. Cut them in half cross-wise and lengthwise, then you can roll the meat out of the skin--otherwise they are impossible to peel!

Then take each quarter-piece and slice them long-ways two times.

If you did it right, you will have 8 pieces that look like a tongue.

Lightly grease a cookie sheet with whatever (olive oil, butter coconut oil) and lay them out. Now is the time to add spices, too! If you wait, they dry quickly and spices won't stick. I use salt, cinnamon, and chili powder at times.

You can either air dry for 2-4 days or heat oven to about 120-140, insert trays, turn oven off and let them dry in there over night. You just want to be real careful not to cook them or let them get too hot. They are ready to eat when completely dry and break easily. If you eat one too early, you won't do it twice!

I have never used a dehydrator, but I can't see why it wouldn't work.

When done, if you can weigh them, they are about 90% RS by weight. I think I normally get about 100g total weight from a big plantain. If you sliced it into 8 slices, each one should provide about 10g of RS.

Consider the average US and Euro person gets 3-5g/day, and you can see how easy it is to get some RS this way. I usually eat 2 pieces in the morning for a breakfast snack and a couple pieces after dinner for something crunchy and salty.

They are excellent when spread with almond or nut butters, butter, pate, avacado, cheese slices.

You'll have to experiment with the thickness of the slices, but I like them on the thick side.

I've only done the potato hack once albeit it was for 28 days. I second the recommendation to be careful about reintroducing fat after so many days without it.

I moved from the PH into transitioning to a leptin reset (Kruse version). The leptin reset proper would involve eating more fat than I can tolerate at present which is why I'm spending approx. 3 weeks to work my way into it. I'm also unaccustomed to eating high protein and I've never eaten such a large breakfast before (you eat 50-75g of protein at breakfast) so it's taking a while to adapt.

Agreed that it must vary with motivation and it seems to me that eating the mashed banana hot would destroy the resistant starch and the butter would reduce the blood sugar impact and sabotage the free fatty acid mobilisation.

A funny thing about the RS in potatoes. It is preserved if the raw potato is thin-sliced and flash-fried in hot oil. I think it more dries than cooks it.

Commercial potato chips (crisps) are actually a good source of RS and one of the main contributors of RS in the US diet.

Unfortunately, the chips/crisps are cooked in horrendous oils that have a host of problems on their own, and the cooked chips take in a lot of this oil.

I have seen studies that indicate potatoes cooked at high temps without water, ie. roasted, contain more RS than cooked and cooled potatoes.

So, if you are a big potato eater, eat a few slices of every potato you cut raw, and prepare your potatoes in a variety of ways, roasted, boiled, cooked and cooled, shredded and fried in good oil...

This should guarantee you the maximum RS from the potatoes you eat.

Wow, this thread has gotten really scientific since I last checked in-i don't have a clue how the potato hack works, I just know it does amazing things . I've done potato days while losing weight and I've dropped pounds. Now I'm in maintenance but I'm going to do a potato day tomorrow and possibly Thursday, to give myself a mental 'reset'. I've been eating way to much sugar lately and that's led to craving it more. I've discovered that potato only days really helps eliminate my sugar cravings!

I still can't wrap my mind around cold potatoes So I'll eat them hot, without skins and with a bit of A-1 sauce and ketchup.

Cold boiled Yukon Golds with a little salt are delicious. Skin and all.

Does this mean that drying out the thin slices and cooking in the microwave to make potato chips doesn't destroy the RS aspect of the potato?

I still can't do cold potatoes either. I tried, honest I did, reds and the golds. But I can't do it.
I guess its a good thing I'm more after the fatty acid mobilization than the RS!!

I can't say for certain, but I think microwave chips probably have a fair amount of RS. Nobody has ever tested it as far as I know.

I bought a microwave potato chip maker on Amazon, it came with a mandolin, and works really well, although it's a lot of work for 20 potato chips!

I would say by scale, that microwave potato chips have more RS than cooked or cooked&cooled.

Here is something I have been toying with:

In the diabetic world, they talk a lot about "Second Meal Effect". Supposedly a low GI carb in the first meal of the day will attenuate glucose/insulin in the second meal.

Well, I have tracked my BG painstakingly for days on an all-potato diet, and I see consistent lowering of BG post-prandially and FBG day to day.

I think continual meals of high GI potatoes causes a definite second meal effect which keeps getting stronger as days go by.

For instance, on a recent week of all potato, my FBGs were: 115, 99, 95, 89, 85, 85, 84.

Also during that week, 1 hour post-prandial readings were: 215, 189, 135, 141, 140, 139, 140.

I would love for someone else to eat all-potato for 5-7 days and track FBG and 1hr PP's.

Read more on Second Meal Effect:

"Consumption of low glycemic-index (LGI) foods has been shown to attenuate blood glucose response during the postprandial
period immediately following a meal. In addition, positive metabolic effects can persist well beyond this period. One of these extended effects, known as the “second-meal effect,” is the positive effect of the bioavailability of glucose on the glucose tolerance of the subsequent meal.

This second-meal effect, initially observed in normal-weight, healthy adult subjects using glucose and guar, has also been documented in
patients with type 2 diabetes."

Well, I don't have equipment to track since I don't have any issues but was wondering about the microwave potato chips since I quit making them and just eat the cold boiled on potato DD's since I thought the cold boiled were better for the RS effect.

I could do it, and I am willing. But it will have to be the week starting the 22nd. I will be working every day that week, so if I take the glucometer home and back again we will not be without it at work.

Wrapping up my potato day, have a couple yellows boiling right now-will end up with 8 of them for the day, but some of them were really small. Nothing else today besides ketchup, A-1 sauce, a cup of diet hot cocoa (fat free), water, diet soda and then I did use non-stick spray. Planning on doing a second potato day tomorrow

Quick question- wrapping up my 3rd and last potato day and dh wants to eat at wendys. i already had my allotment of potatoes for the day, but am feeling a bit hungry so I'd like to get something. First thought was to quit potato hack early and get a cheeseburger lol. However, wendys chive and sour cream potato only has 3.5 grams of fat. I haven't had any fat.in the last three days, so would this small amount mess the hack up? Weight loss isn't why I did the hack, but I do want to avoid a large bounce on the scale tomorrow.
Fyi: their garden salad had like 15 grams of fat!!


Thoughts?

I'm not hacking, but you can get the potato plain at Wendy's if you want to avoid the sour cream. Not sure if you want to do that . . .

Well, after doing 3 potato hack days, to give myself a mental sugar reset, I lost 5lbs, hit a new low, and a new decade at 129.5lbs I was expecting a bit of a woosh, but dang!

Ok, back to 5:2 and now aiming to keep my sugar under 25 grams a day

Has anyone tried salsa with potatoes? I just bought some that is fat free, 10 calories and 1 gram of sugar per 2 tbsp serving, so I think it would be safe to use on a potato day? Don't know how it would taste though

I do. BUT I use it on a baked potato along with LF cottage cheese. On potato DD's I just eat cold boiled potatoes with salt.

Sara,
There is also a potato thread on the paleo board in the LCF forum. In it I tracked my 7 day hack w a food diary to, among other things, figure out how much fat would be too much. I was thinking about this the other day when you asked about the Wendy's baked potato with 3.5g of fat. I can't remember exact numbers, you'll have to look & certainly YMMV but I think you will find that you can add a bit without an appreciable change in weight loss potential.

Thanks, will have to check out the other thread I've decided to make my dds potato days, so I'd like to find some different ways to eat them!

I love Juddding! I decided to do potato DD's when my weight loss stalled my third week on the diet. My DD's are supposed to be 380 calories, but with potato DD's I probably eat more like 600 and still consistently drop after every DD. I eat 3 potatoes with ICBINB spray and fat free sour cream or cheese. Sometimes I have a bowl of salad in the evening as well. I went way over last night, and threw in a baked sweet potato, and was still down a pound this morning.
