WOE: JUDDD
Well, after 5 days of tater-ing, I am down 6 pounds, a couple of which are T-day bloat--but considering that we are not "de-carbing" at least 3 pounds or so must be fat loss. I feel much "leaner" than I did before T-day.

I will have another tater day today and then I have 4 days out of town, so I will let you all know whether I gain any back. People over at *** did not gain back after they stopped--and since they mostly eat primally, so will I. There is a belief that the potato hack improves insulin signaling. I think JUDDD does a similar thing. Time will tell!

I am not JUDDD-ing--I realized it is too hard to do UD/DD's on taters. I don't know how many calories I have been eating, because I have been eating to hunger. I can tell you that yesterday, I had about 6 yukon golds and one russet that was bigger than my head.

I think for me, I will try and "tater" for awhile, say 4 days on 3 days off, coinciding with my weekends. I find it decidedly unpainful to eat taters for 3-4 days. It is boring but not hard. And after a day or so, hunger is low and I had a lot of energy.

I'm sorry to read about those of you strugging with this hack. I have a few thoughts:

1) give it some more time, eat to hunger without obsessing about calories, and don't include fat--do it as written --or

2) regular JUDDD is better for you-

Whichever--this is a short term hack--not a lifestyle change--so have fun with it!

I am using the Potato Diet as a short term diet to get below my goal weight so it will be easier to maintain. I am finding the diversion interesting so I am enjoying the potato thing. Besides I actually like potatoes. Just rarely eat them since LC was so ingrained in my head. No fat is a little harder but doable.

Wow! Great results so far What are your thoughts on only doing potato DDs? Do you think that would work or would it interrupt the rhythm of the potato days?

Great results Ouiz! I'm not ready to go all-potatoes quite yet, but for that kind of loss in those many days, I'm keeping it in my back pocket. A great way to break a stall or just shake things up. I'm going to have a potato DD today, and probably Friday, and we'll see what happens. Thanks so much for bringing this to us!

Potato report: first experiment day went fine.

Pros: easy, a little more energy (?), filling at some points
Cons: wanted to have some other things and couldn't (ok for short term). Some big hunger moments, but I did leave the potatoes until later in the day. If I was doing a non-DD potato diet this would not be an issue. I like the idea of eating more potatoes one day, less the next without necessarily trying to reach JUDDD calorie levels ... but I also am afraid to mess with my beautiful JUDDD rhythm.

I lost .5 pounds from my previous after-down-day weight, but I don't know if that's the potatoes or not. I lost a bunch on the scale at the beginning of the month, and then two weeks of not much happening (as per usual!) but I've lost inches during that time, so I am expecting some scale drop here anyway. However, my down days are usually lower carb, so that's interesting. I will try this again! I'm not continuing today though due to dinner plans.

Loving watching this thread. Great results Ouiz.

I may do a couple of tater days but I so love the variety of foods that JUDDD has allowed me. Rather like Adi, I would like to be at the lower end of my Maintenance weight before Xmas. So perhaps next week.... I have cold just now so don't think this is a good time to start.

I have a bag of potatoes but I'm afraid to use it.

I have noticed that potatoes don't affect me the same way other carbs do, but I have used them sparingly on DDs. Maybe I will try a few potato down days. I suspect that the interruption of an Up Day that includes things other than potatoes, however, is going to ruin the experiment.

Well, I am doing a potato UD. It is after lunch and I forgot to eat since I am not hungry. How did I get so full for so long on hash browns cooked in a cast iron skillet for breakfast with zero oil in the pan??
I have a potato cooking in the microwave. I prefer oven baked potatoes but I am working with what I have here. I will end up with 1575 calories for the day if I eat the whole potato for lunch and another whole one for dinner.
I feel I just need a nudge and I enjoyed yesterday.
Hope I am not being a bad influence on becksterinindy.

Adi--that is my experience as well--sooo full on potatoes!

Granny--a "hack" is a short-term intervention that changes something. It is a quick and dirty solution to a problem--

Steph--I suspect you are right--I think the key to the potato hack is starch with no fat for 3-7 days, then resuming regular feeding. I plan to go back to my regular feeding schedule this weekend, and then do another 4-5 days of potatoes next week.

John Mcdougall has many videos on utube and books regarding the perfect potato (sans fat). He has a new book is called the starch solution. Potato fasting is great to get rid of bloating too (as they are rich in potasium).

There is an interesting book written in the 90's called "potatoes not prozac, which advised eating potatoes before bed due to the release of serotonin and other good things.

My UD is over and I had fried potatoes for breakfast, baked potatoes for lunch, and boiled potatoes for dinner. I now have thin sliced potatoes dipped in lemon juice in the dehydrator. The directions said to brush with oil but I just salted and peppered them and turned the machine on. Let's see if that works.

THE GOOD NEWS. After lunch every UD I start prowling looking for something sweet. Today I just went back to work and never thought about looking for candy or cookies or ice cream topping in the frig. This is a good thing. Monday and I finished off the can of whipped cream I found in the back of the office frig.

Funny. I think it was bought at the first of school for our ice cream sundaes we had which would mean I bought it out of my budget. It needed to go anyway. It was taking up space. Probably why no one else had finished it off. Not sure who it belonged to. There were two cans in the frig and one was empty. I didn't know my husband worked at my office. Someone else finished off the strawberry ice cream syrup I was expecting to find. Darn.

But today was an UD and I even went to the PO which is right beside the local grocery and didn't run in and buy cookies from the bakery. I am so proud of me.

Adi, I know what you mean about looking for something sweet! I wish I didn't like sweets so much. Until I married my DH, I wasn't a sweet eater......but, I loved salty foods! I was skinny then too! So, I blame my DH for me being fat!! lol!! NOT!! That all lies at my feet!

Good for you not buying cookies from the bakery! I'm curious to see if the potatoes continue to reduce your desire for sweets? Good luck!

Today was my first DD potato experiment and it was surprisingly easy and I haven't been hungry all day. Normally my DD are right around 500 cals, sometimes up to 600. Today I had 90 cal of potatoes at 1pm 90 cals at 3pm and 200 cals at 6pm and I'm done for the night and feeling good. Tomorrow is going to be a regular UD (not potato-only). I don't know if this potato experiment will help move the scale, but for today at least it had made my DD simple so I'm happy!

I should note that I had a couple sprays of Pam with my first round of taters and the dinner was just garlic powder and salt with my California grown Yukon Golds.

Adi, I admit that I have enjoyed whipped cream from the can as well. I spray it on top of my spoon, enjoying a couple of spoonfuls. Oh, I used to spray it on jello cups or fresh blueberries, but honestly it works without either.

Oh, Good Heavens, Girl! Why dirty the spoon? Just tilt your head back and spray that stuff straight into your mouth. That's what I do!

I did my first potato DD today and was plenty happy & satisfied. Amazed at how comfortable I felt w/nice, warm potatoes in my stomach. I'll probably do another one Friday and see what the scale says.
