Why thank you DoggyGirl. Glad you're enjoying browsing the blog.

Yennie, thos Dutch Golds really are good! They came in a pretty small bag like most new potatoes (about 2# I think, sorry the bag's buried in my trash can. I steamed thew whole bag at one time.).

I have done quite a few potato DD's and I find my appetite is well controlled when I do them.

I am happy the potato hack is working so well for you Buttoni!

Thanks Babs. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it continues to do so. 8 red spuds baking in the oven as we "speak"

OMG I'm down 7# in 4 days. I defo think this is gonna work for me. BTW, this is the delicious soup I'm doing to break the potato monotony. Two bowls of this really fill me up.

POTATO HACK SOUP

INGREDIENTS:

24 oz. white potatoes (about 8 small), washed but do not peel
4 c. tap water
1 c. homemade chicken broth (chilled and defatted)
2 large green onions, chopped
Dash each sea salt and black pepper

DIRECTIONS: Wash and cut up the potatoes (don't peel). Place them in medium-large soup pot. Add 4 c. water (more if potatoes are not fully covered). Add 1 c. homemade 99% fat-free chicken stock for flavor (I chill mine and scoop off all fat off the top). Bring potatoes to boil in the water/stock mixture. Add salt and pepper and lower to a medium boil. While they cook, clean and coarsely chop the green onion. When potatoes are tender when a knife is inserted into them, using an immersion blender (or food processor or blender) puree the potatoes and liquid until smooth. Add onion and pulse some more. Serve at once.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes eight 1-cup servings, each contains:
62 calories
.16 g fat
13.95 g carbs, 2.21 g fiber, 11.74 g NET CARBS
1.68 g protein
16 mg sodium
364 mg potassium

This is what it looks like:

I'm so pleased to read of your progress and that it is going well for you.

Off-topic, but just to say that I made your lemon coconut bars recently and they've been well-received.

Well....I took my blood sugar last night after 10 oz of potatoes (cooked earlier in the day and refrigerated) and I don't think I will do more DD potato only days. I'm not diagnosed diabetic or even pre-diabetic but I monitor my sugar from time to time just to see what various foods do. I know some full blown T2 diabetics who can eat potatoes if they have been cooked then chilled and not have big spikes. But I guess me and white potatoes aren't going to get along in the BG department..... I guess I really do need protein & fat with my carbs.

Tomorrow is my 3rd DD and as much as I really loved the "comfort food effect" of the potatoes for DD food, I think I'm going to do eggs, and maybe some low cal vegs such as celery/lettuce. .....

More

Thank you, Shari and Sunday. I'm pretty excited the pounds are dropping so quickly. And Sunday, to me it doesn't matter what it looks like, just so long as it's good and fills my stomach. It ALL looks pretty to our stomachs.

Thanks, DG. I'm thinking about doing this for 6 days, taking a day off and eating maybe a little meat, fat and veg for a change of pace and then starting up again for another 6 days. In other words, ON 6; OFF 1, over and over again until I get to goal. Do you guys who have done this for awhile think that would work? I'm really craving a little meat now. Or do you think that would be a BIG mistake and take my body too long to get back into a "potato burning" mode?

I didn't do the PH long enough to advise you! But, I would say, go for it! Sounds to me like you've given a lot different WOE's without the success you want! But, I'll defer to the experts! Whatever you decide.......good luck with your losses!

DG, you should try them cold. That is the only way I eat mine. I really want all of the RS I can get.

I eat about 1/3 of mine boiled and chilled (snacks); 1/3 baked, chilled and then dry-fried (breakfast); and 1/3 as the soup above (lunches). I actually tried some of the baby new potatoes one night cut in half, dipped in a mixture of erythritol and cinnamon at room temperature. It was actually good and kinda like a "cheesecake" that was really dense/packy. And it didn't really taste like potato that way.

I'll look for the thread but iirc, Key Tones had a cycle like the one you outline - she ate potato during the week and then ate meat, eggs, other vegetables etc. at the weekend before returning to potato. She had good results and broke a significant stall.

ETA: Potato Hack on Paleo Blogs - Anyone Doing This? Mostly the posts from March onwards (which might be pg 6 onwards).

On my potato DD's I eat my regular coffee with HWC and 2 eggs for breakfast. I then wait about 6 hours and then start the cold boiled potatoes. I prefer the gold potatoes for my DD's. I am in maintenance so the potatoes allow me to have around 600 calories with no gains. Maybe trying a protein breakfast and then potatoes might work. I love to eat the cold boiled potatoes with a little salt and that is all.

Man, I'm down 9# in just 5 days. Simply amazing. I'm in utter disbelief at how this is working for me. Today will be my off day. I had eggs, 2 bacon and 4 oz. hashbrowns for breakie. Making mini-meatza pizza bites for lunch. We plan on Indian tandoori chicken for supper. Than it's back to the potato regimen Round 2 tomorrow.

Thanks for your input Adi! I too love them boiled, cold, and with just a little salt and also pepper for me.

I am SO HAPPY for you!!!

The success stories are making me want to find a way to continue working with potatoes on DD. I'm now thinking I might try more frequent feedings and smaller doses. We shall see.

The smaller feedings and more frequent potato consumption is kinda how I'm doing it, DG. I'm not diabetic, but I find a small 5 oz. potato is all I can handle at my 3 main meals. Then I get hungry between meals around 9"30 am, 3pm, 9pm (something I rarely do on regular Atkins). So I'm eating 1/2 of a 5 oz. potato or 3-4 3/4" babies for snacks in-between meals to quell those hunger pangs. I try to not let myself get overwhelmed with hunger or I get hypoglycemic symptoms real bad (I've always been like that) I get weak, dizzy and hands shake real bad if I get too hungry). When that happens I can very easily lose my food self-control and just eat the first thing in sight to stop it. And so far, this tact is working for me on my Potato Hack. I just have to be sure I don't let my "off" day turn in to an OFF-OFF-UP-AND-AWAY day. LOL

I think I'm a kind of "accidental" hacker.. I bought a few potatoes last week, thinking I might try the PH "one day soon" but without any specific date in mind... Then today, I got up late, had my 2 cups of coffee with hwc (done by 2pm) and went out to Walmart. Did some clothes shopping and food shopping and it was 5:30 or so and I realized I hadn't eaten yet. I was going to go to the food court and suddenly thought... Hmm, go home, cook some potatoes and... perfect opportunity!

So I did. I put 2 russets in the oven to bake and boiled some white nuggets and got busy putting purchases away. By the time that was done, so were the nuggets. I had about 10 oz, some with a tsp or so of queso salsa, some with s&p and malt vinegar...

Just now, almost 10 pm, I ate about 4-5 oz of a baked russet with a little leftover gravy. I'm laughing at myself because this was so unplanned. I still have 1 1/2 cooked russets and 2 oz maybe of boiled nuggets, all in the fridge. We'll see how tomorrow goes - I'll have to go out and buy some more taters!

Hope your off day went well Buttoni!

I was thinking more about the PH and still wanting to figure out if there is a way to work it on my DDs. Since I still have potatos cooked and in the frige, I may try smaller more frequent meals as you are doing and see if I can keep my BG under control that way. I'm thinking 10 oz at once was just too much.

So 20 oz of boiled potatoes with skins = 492 cals according to my tracker so I will divide that up into 5 or 6 equal portions and check BG after at least a couple of them and see what that does. I really liked the comfort food effect on my first couple of DDs. I didn't get that yesterday with what I ate.

I love experimenting! Can't wait to hear about your day off.

Well, I bounced up 1# on my off day apparently. I ate eggs, bacon and fried potato for breakie; mini meatzas for lunch; steak and steamed broccoli for din-din. Snack was a slice of low-carb bread toasted with butter. Today I'm right back on the potato routine. Hopefully round 2 will go as well as round 1 went for me. And if I only bounce 1# on off days, I think that's a good plan for me. 10 oz. at a main meal and a little less for in-between snacks is working nicely for me.

Will do, Shari. And I'll be rootin' for you, too, Jeanyyy. This hack is doing wonders to break my 3 year stall and shed my recent gained weight. Best of all, it's giving me some hope where there just was almost none for me ever losing, on ANY plan.
