I guess that's a good thing? LOL I think I'll try it today...I don't really have much to lose since I've pretty much stayed the same doing 4:3/5:2 for the last 3 weeks!

I titrated up to the first hack, because I was very low carb for a few years before trying this. I had one tater every day for lunch for a week and then went straight into the my first hack. I have not stopped eating taters since.

Phew! It took me 2 days but I finally got through this thread! What an amazing source of information!

I am starting my first PH day today. It's a DD for me, but I think I will just eat to satiety as many here have suggested. I brought just over a pound of cold boiled gold potatoes to work along with some sea salt and malt vinegar. If I am still hungry tonight I will make more taters for dinner. I think I will try to do today and tomorrow with taters, as Fridays I typically go out and have Mexican food/Margaritas. Depending on how these 2 days go, I may try a longer hack next week. Hoping for good results!

I think it will help for, at least, a little bit of time.
Yesterday, I did my first DD. I kept it simple by eating six hardboiled eggs spaced out into three meals. I thought I'd work off the egg ACD. It worked. I was down 2 lbs. today.
Good Luck!

Nicole, I just realized your question re the DD potato hack. I hope it is not too late, but I have read you are supposed to stay under 500 cal. Good Luck!

I have had good success with the potato hack while keeping my calories under 800. If I am following JUDDD I often do a DD a few times a week (maintenance) eating only potatoes and I would then stay under 500. I have this weekend free form any social obligations so I am starting the potato hack today to bring my weight down a little bit more and then go back to JUDDD for maintenance again. My weight is 147.6 as of this morning and I would love to be under 145 next week sometime.

Ok, restart! Potatoes lost that round. Husband came home yesterday with all of the great food that he and his friends didn't eat on the weekend and I put the bowl of potatoes in the fridge. Current weight is 148.8 but I am pretty sure that is a salt induced gain that should come off quickly if I follow the potato hack for a few days.

I seem to be doing the potato hack JUDDD style as in every second day I am doing a potato DD followed by an UD. I have the willpower to eat potatoes only for one day. I am back down to 146.2 this morning so I am not complaining. I am hoping that the scale will be 145 by Friday.

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.

Sorry Buttoni! I have confused you with someone else. I hope you have good success with the potatoes.

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:

My Potato Hacking Journal

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?
