Thanks Slowsure! I managed to just get to the 145.8 for the weekend. I felt like I was ready for a potato hack last week but ended up not being as motivated as I thought. Potatoes still came through for me even with the every second day approach. Just took a bit longer. Craving eggs and veggies lately so will be doing my maintenance style JUDDD with more variety this week.

I'm trying the potato hack for 10 days - god willing. Today is day one. I'm already sick of potatoes. But I'm also doing a Jillian Michaels detox thing I saw on pinterest: 60 oz water, dandelion root tea bag, lemon juice and unsweetened cranberry juice. To mix things up n help out my kidneys. So, the next 10 days, potatoes galore + tea and water. I'll post my results as I go along. Any brave souls who wanna do it with me, or anyone who wants to offer words of encouragement (I'll need em!) -pm me! My hope is to get in an hr of Callanetics a day as well. Ambitious I know. But, I gotta lotta weddings and fun things comin up! I wanna see what magic can happen in 10 days.

Ambitious plan Gillygum! I found I had quite a bit of energy on the hack. I am interested to hear how it goes combined with the tea.

Well, it's taken me 2 days to get through this marathon thread, start to finish. Very interesting the results some are getting. I may give this a try for a couple weeks and see what happens. But can't start until Monday, because he have a house guest this weekend (someone big-time into gourmet cooking) and a bunch of others will be here for lunch Saturday as well. I seriously doubt any of them would be interested in joining me in a potato fest.

Hi Buttoni I remember you from when I started JUDDD and then I think you went on to HCG? I really like the potato hack. The first time I tried it I felt a little off but each time I go on it I physically feel better. It has become like a cleanse for me and helps me clean up my diet and get my appetite under control. I think you are right that the guests might not be on board.

Thanks! Day 3 today! I actually started the hack same day as tom arrived. So I started at 140 (I'm usually 138-137) and weighed at 136.4 this morning (still during tom). That was exciting! But for some reason I feel like I'm really retaining water. Which is weird cause I think the detox drink is suppose to eliminate water weight. Either way, I'm gonna keep truckin. I've been eating red potatoes just cause they're more appetizing to me. I don't know if that will make a difference. If anyone has experience with it lemme know!

I left JUDDD to return to straight Atkins with a Primal-Paleo bent. I've never done nor would I ever consider HCG. I plan to try the potato hack for 2 weeks and see how things go for me.

No problem, Babs. Definitely someone else though. I hope I have luck with this, too. It makes sense logically, and clearly folks are losing doing it. I just hope I don't GAIN! LOL That's what happened when I tried Paleo and ate fruit more often.

Hello Buttoni

Yennie's potato hack journal is interesting and discusses people's reactions to the hack. I had to introduce rice (as you probably read, earlier in this thread). Potato has a much better nutritional profile than rice but back in March I couldn't have continued on potato alone.

Here and elsewhere, Sunday has posted some valuable information about resistant starch and its useful impact on the lower GI tract (it produces valuable short chain fatty acids). One of the most helpful sources of resistant starch is Bob's Red Mill Unmodified Potato Starch.

I'm just mentioning it here because we're looking into whether the calories count from this (its nutritional label gives a standard carb count for it because it's not recognised as a standard fibre but it's approx 80% resistant starch that isn't digested) because supplementing it outside of the potato hack might well be beneficial to those following a low to moderate carb WOE.

It's in Yennie's sig file and in the weight loss journal section (I think) - this:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/we...g-journal.html

Good progress for you.

Thanks so much Slow for your helpful post. I'll check out Yennie's Journal and the unmodified potato starch as well. I hadn't heard of that product. I have read a little about resistant starch as the Atkins nutritionist went into it at great length a couple years ago. She worked with Dr. Atkins for years and thinks the resistant starch research is the most promising research in nutrition advances.

I am aware that pre-cooking and chilling potatoes to reduce digestible starch and lower BG/insulin response/impact. Not eating potatoes anymore, I haven't needed to do that until now on the Potato Hack regimen. I'm looking forward to starting Monday.

Thank u!! Another pound down today 132.2. I may have to take a one day break because of Father's Day. We're all going out of town to my brother's place to celebrate with inlaws and go boating, etc. So, I'm either going to do very low carb or bring a potato dish to pass with potatoes, green onions, and FF sour cream. Hope you all have a great Father's Day!

WTG Gilly. I'm starting tomorrow. We'll see if I'm one this will work for or not. so far it's resisted everything else I've tried, including IF, JUDDD, Paleo, Primal. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Peggy don't be surprised if your body's initial reaction is shock and awe. If you are able to stick with it, it can be surprisingly helpful, but some (just some) folks have an initial negative reaction (hunger, bloating, etc)--although I never did. I always recommend folks try and stick with it past the first couple of days at least.

Oh, I can stick with anything for a couple of weeks (I think) Ouiz. I just pray I'm not one of the folks that gain beyond an initial bounce up. At this point on my forever stall and recent gain trying Primal-Paleo, I'm kinda apprehensive about it. But bought my potatoes today, boiled 5-6 of them in quarters, am chilling them right now and am ready to get this show on the road. I'm going to do check my official start weight in the morning and let 'er rip.

1 question: Those that make the waffle iron hashbrowns, I assume everyone means you grate/shred RAW potatoes to do that?

Okey-Dokey! Thanks Ouiz. I figured that was how you guys were doing them. I just waded through the 106 pg. thread on *** and one gal there said she mandoline slices, lines then in a hot non-stick skillet quite thick. Browns first side on HIGH until quite brown and they are totally sticking together. Then she flips the "pancake" over to brown on the other side. Flipping too soon makes a mess of it she said. Then she enjoys with malt vinegar. She says they're soft in the inside and crunchy on the outside.

Yes, raw potatoes. I'd like to add though that, in my experience and based on suggestions from Otzi, I shred mine, rinse them well in warm water to get as much as the excess starch out as I can and then let them dry on a paper towel for a bit. I've let them even sit out for 4-5 hours. They're pretty dry when I put them on the waffle iron but this is the only way I can get "waffles" and not a disgusting mess I have to scrape out of the iron with a fork. When I try to do it with freshly grated potatoes, no matter how long I cook them on the iron, it turns into a sticky mess.

I love them when its done right!

I got through Day 1 OK. I decided not to do by hashbrowns in my Vuitonni waffle iron. Things stick in it sometimes. I rinsed, dried on paper towels and sprinkled them instead onto a real hot pancake griddle. Waited a REAL long time before flipping the giant potato "tortilla". They crisped up so-so, especially on the edges and it tasted great! I got through the day pretty well. Hunger was frequent after 3pm (every 2˝ hours!), so I'd just go grab a cold, small boiled new potato in the fridge and sprinkled with a little of my homemade Cavender's Greek seasoning to quell the hunger.

Man, I tallied up 2.2# total for the day, for a total of 870 calories. That would say to me that it is probably calorie deficit (over time) that makes this work for those it works for. That and the total lack of fat intake. I've had not headaches, light-headedness or other symptoms. Just occasional hunger afternoon-evening. 8 oz. at 3 main meals seems to be my needed level and another 8-10 oz. for snacks as needed.

Day 2 this morning I sliced up a cold, baked potato and browned it on the griddle. Those browned nicely and were very filling. Again 8 oz. seems to be how much it takes to "satiate".

There is quite a bit out there about the mechanism of how this works, and it is more than just a calorie deficit. The lack of fat intake is critical to how the potato hack works but not in the sense of calorie deficit.

Just adding a variation on how to prepare hash browns in the waffle iron (hope I'm not duplicating). I buy frozen shredded potatoes with nothing added and measure out a portion or two in a bowl. I nuke for 90 seconds to thaw and then put those in either the waffle iron or Foreman grill--perfection!

I would have to agree the lack of fat intake is the key is key to going after stored fat. Didn't mean to imply calorie deficit was why it worked. Doubt it hurts though.

I'm absolutely astounded that I only ate 870 calories with so little effort and struggle. In the past 1000 calorie diets worked for me, but I have always felt irritable and deprived doing it. Yesterday, I didn't struggle to get through the day at all really. My husband was quite surprised I wasn't cranky, as that's what 1000 cals. or less usually does to me. One of the reasons I stopped JUDDDing. JUDDD wasn't doing me (or him) any favors.

I decided I'm not going to get on the scale until this weekend, one week in.
If I'm going to have an initial bounce up, I don't want to see it in cold, hard numbers at my feet. It's just like I always had to look away when I had to get shots as a child. Doesn't hurt so bad if you don't see it.

Not yet experiencing any feelings of initial bloating people have described.

Well, I couldn't stand it any longer girls. I know I said I wasn't going to get on the scale until this weekend, but 2 days in and I'm down 3.5-4 lbs!! I'm just astounded I didn't bounce UP! I only got a little shaky late last night (not sure why), which was quelled quickly with 5 tiny new potatoes. Tastiest "medicine" I ever did take.

BTW, the "Dutch Gold" (Idaho) new potatoes my local store sells in a bag are super, steamed in their skins for exactly 10 minutes and chilled. Their skins are the thinnest, golden color! They kinda have a hint of the taste of boiled raw peanuts to me, if you've ever had that southern delicacy. They have pure white flesh that is moist and creamy like new red potatoes. I'd actually never heard of them before this batch I bought.

So it would appear this Potato Hack is going to work for me. I'll see where I am by week's end.

Hi potato hackers!

Buttoni, I love your blog!!! Happy to read that early results of potato hacking are positive for you!

I have a question for the seasoned JUDDD potato people. I have probably read the answer to this question but my head is a bit after all the thread reading I've done over the last couple of days.

Yesterday I decided to try a potato day. I ended up making it and I'm also calling it my first JUDDD DD since it was only 630 cals. What the heck, right?

Is anyone doing potatoes only for just their JUDDD DD's? I'm just curious how that is working out for people if anyone is doing it. I could not IMAGINE surviving a day on so low calories but found it fairly easy with the "comfort factor' of the potatoes. I'm doing a regular UD today but am planning another potato day tomorrow with 500 cals this time.

Thanks for any input you have!

Beth
