You GO Barb! It's so nice to see the scale moving again, isn't it? I was getting pretty frustrated after a 3˝ year stall, basically.

They filled me up....

Didn't come anywhere near the 19 oz.
I won't be afraid to try them again.
Wondering if I could get away with eating something green
like spinach on this hack? I don't do the catsup or much on the salsa.

Still don't think that I should do this frequently. The amazing part is
how full they make you feel. By 6:30 in the evening I was finished for the day.
AMAZING TO ME THANKS FOR YOUR HELP CHAR.
Hey Grammie did you try it?

Peggy, what are you eating-how are you varying it up? I am on 4th ph since July2? and down 10 lbs but I'm so bored. I go off/crazy on weekend and this week company is coming today so for five days I won't hack but yesterday I could only eat a few boiled ones at lunch in vinegar and 1 lb oven fries in a t. of evoo with sf ketchup. I can hardly look at a potato today.

Barbo, we're doing the potato hack every other day (on our "down days" with no ill effects. DH is not diabetic but he's prediabetic, insulin resistant, and has a family history of diabetes on both sides, so you can imagine how hesitant he was to try this!

I know, it's a lot of potatoes! And yes, they're so satisfying. Glad you had good luck with it.

I don't usually eat any other veggies with it aside from the small bit of salsa I might use, DH uses some chopped onions, and he likes to munch on a couple of those mini peppers that Costco sells with his potatoes at lunch. I'm sure a bit of spinach would be fine, just don't add any fat to it.

Anne, I sometimes bake them and put 1 tsp. chopped chives on those with plenty of salt. I bake them and eat with a pinch of my combo lemon pepper and a seasoning blend I have. I have some baked potatos cut into wedges (as we speak) baking in the oven with some of my seafood spice blend sprinkled on top. I bake at 400 until they crisp up for a late night snack. I steam small gold and red ones (1-2") and keep cold in the fridge for snacks. I make my potato hack soup blending boiled ones (skin and all) with a little green onion, using their boiling broth for my liquid and puree with a stick blender. Sometimes I boil a bunch and puree with a little of the liquid for a mashed potato version. Sometimes I dry fry them in a non-stick skillet. Sometimes I eat the frozen hash browns (just potatoes) fried in a non-stick skillet I wipe with an olive oil dipped paper towel. The skillet is barely glistening, though, as I don't want to introduce any oil really. I'm not fond of them with vinegar and I don't like ketchup at all. Sometimes I just eat them baked with salt and pepper. Tried one with a spoon of rot-tel on it and BLEH! Won't do THAT again.

Peg, Char, Quiz and all,

This is such an interesting challenge. I never thought I would say FEH to a potato.
They are my lifelong LOVE! I did one DD hack and after Char told me how many to eat,
I measured them out and baked, measured again to eat with skin and all. Never could
I eat them all. There is a bag in the fridge of baked potatoes. I was stuffed....
However, today is an UP day and guess what I had? A huge pile of French fries at
a Hawaiian place called Hapa J's. They sprinkle them with some kind of dried seaweed that
is black. DH thought it was pepper. YUM!

Peggy it's so good to have that danged scale moving down again after soooo long. When
I saw that 170 on the scale I almost plotzed...glad for you too. Quiz you are genius with
the bake mix. I made the best buttermilk biscuits that we have had in so many years.
Char is DH still moving the scale downwards? I know that we are all extreme foodies.
I think that is what is so enthralling about this plan. There is always "TOMORROW"

My goal is 150 by Christmas. That's 8 lbs from now, but since I turtle I am going to work
hard for that number because I know how my body sabotages me with scale numbers.
So 158 today could be 160 tomorrow.....

I only went down to 164.5 today (only 1/2 pound down). But I didn't drink so much water yesterday, and did put a fair amount of salt on my spuds. I'm shooting for 150 by Christmas, too, Barbo, but if I don't get there.....well another goes y and I don't get there. It isn't for lack of trying, that's for sure.

Well I'm sure not breaking any speed records. But being a turtle is better than not moving at all, Barbo. I'm waiting until 10am to weigh nowadays, so I'll see what the scale says today later.

Barbo, DH is still going down, slow but sure, and so am I - I saw 143.6 yesterday, first time I've seen 143 for months. So we're both happy!

If it hadn't been for Ouis we never would've tried this at all. I trust her judgment and her homework on these things so even though DH was particularly nervous about it, we did it, and have been doing potato down days now since July 10. He's down around 10 pounds, and I'm down aroun 6 or 7, slow and steady gets it done!

BTW just so ya know - Ouis is with an "O" not a "Q" and is pronounced Weez. I've had the pleasure of meeting her in person and we've kept up an email friendship for many many years now! She's a very bright and wonderful lady. Love you Ouisue! (pronounced "Weezie" for anyone who wants to know! )

Love you back char-baby!

My name is an odd one, that's fer sure! On LCF the line under our screen name adds to the problem, because it surely does make that O look like a Q!! Then you follow an O with a U and no wonder people think its queezy, lol!!!

So glad everyone is benefiting from the tater hack! It is pretty miraculous how well it works if you are patient and not expecting instant results--

You know too - DH keeps saying how MUCH he enjoys those taters - even though he eats them THE SAME DAMN WAY - cut into chunks, ovenroasted at 400* for 45 minutes, cooled and put in fridge. When he wants some, he puts them in a wide shallow bowl, adds some chopped onion and some malt vinegar/pepper and he's a happy camper. Tonight he did have some salsa on them too.

I should talk, I am loving the halved/stuffed twice-baked taties myself. Haven't gotten tired of them yet!

Well, I have read this entire thread and it is long but very informative. I'm on my fourth hack and hope for it to go on for a week. So far I am down 6 or 7 real lbs and have 9 to go. Thanks for all the great hints, etc

I'm sure the answer is in this long thread somewhere, but I am going to be lazy and ask. If I decided to PH on my DDs (only), do I eat potatoes to satisfaction or do I have to stick to my DD calories to see results? I'm hoping it's the former because I am really struggling with low cal DDs lately and am looking for an alternative so I can take a little break. I tried the PH on one DD quite some time ago but I stuck to my calories at the time (500) and it was awful. I was so hungry and unsatisfied that I swore I would never do it again. lol. And my DD calories are much lower now so....

I'm going to have to lay off the tater hacking for awhile. Developed a rash Sunday, went to the doc Monday and as I suspected, it's the Shingles again. That's twice in as many years now. Stress with my Mother's dementia care and my Type-A personality brother for 2 weeks obviously took it's toll on me. Man, sometimes I think I can't win for losin'. It's so sad that family dealings can make you sick, literally.

It gets better (or worse, I should say). Doc also pointed out my last blood work in March-April, just prior to my cataract removal surgery, showed elevated creatinine levels in the kidney check. This is a strong indicator of less than optimal kidney function. Although come things can cause weakened kidneys, she doesn't think any of those apply to me. My reading was 2.6 and normal adult female is .5-1.1!!! Doc doesn't think this is at all low-carb diet related, either. She wants to order some repeat tests and a few new ones when I get back from San Antonio in a couple weeks. She said she may even want to refer me to a nephrologist for further investigating, as 2.6 is "really quite high". Anyhow, I don't want diet to in any way impact these test results, so I'm going to lay off the hacks for a couple months it looks like. I can always come back to it when all this is checked out. In the meantime, I'll just eat me regular low-carb Atkins and hopefully maintain right where I am until this gets diagnosed or resolved. I wish everyone luck with their potato-hack adventures. As Arnold says, "I'll be back", hopefully. This hacking is the only thing that has been working for me to break my interminable stall at 165-170.

Not sure if anyone's seen this guys blog / self-experiment but he ate 20 potatoes a day for 2 months. His blog is 20potatoesaday. He lost 21 pounds in those 2 months and his stats (blood pressure etc.) improved quite a lot, especially impressive was his LDL (bad) cholestrol which was cut almost in half (142 down to 84). He didn't lose much more than you'd figure that he would based on his calorie intake of potatoes alone (looks like his intake avg was ~1900 cal and his burn rate was estimated at 2800) but said that if he did it again, he'd test with more cold potatoes for the resistant starch effect.

I have been so shocked this afternoon. My bs bottomed out and I'm feeling hypo-shakey and hungry and terrible. I ate like I did yesterday- black coffee in the am, baked small yukons in broth with a T of poblano scq-prolly about 8 ozof potato. Around 2:30 when I was prepping my slices to bake for dinner I ate a couple of raw slices. 45 minutes later-boom I was knocked down with this. I quickly microwaved a few slices with salt and ate them. I'm still jittery but better. Not sure what to think.

I had it happen to me a few times on my 5 hacks so far, Anne. I just try to be sure I don't go more than 6 hours without eating some spuds and that seems to prevent it from happening. When I go from breakfast to 2-3pm before my second meal, that just doesn't work out for me and I get that crash BS drop. I found I wanted to eat my first meal around 11am; second meal around 4-5pm; third meal around 8pm. Not sure why that's how my meals evolved on the hacking, but I just found that schedule worked best for my body's hunger needs and to prevent those crashes.

Thanks, Peggy. This is my 4 or 5th period of this hack and I have been hungry but not hypogylcemic and was so shokced. I had eaten a couple hours before and had just eaten 2/3 slices raw. I read about your kidney testing-sure hope all goes well.

I hope you feel better soon and that your tests come out ok Peggy. I am grateful that you have been posting your success with the potato hack as it has been very motivational.
1annewil-I am not sure but aren't raw potatoes toxic? Maybe that was the issue?
Elphie, I have done potato DD's at about 600-800 calls and lost very slowly. I was probably going over my UD calls as well so maybe not the best experiment.

I am on the third day of the potato hack and have dropped from 155 to 151.6 as of this morning. This was new weight that I lost as I was gaining over the last few weeks instead of losing which was the original plan.) It has been a summer filled with fun and food for me and I have been struggling getting back to my JUDDD calorie limits this month. The hack seems to really reduce my appetite and get my cravings back under control. I hope to keep it up until the weekend and then JUDDD again at the right calorie counts.
Hi Pooticus! I hope you are doing well.

Good Information

Char thanks for setting me straight on Ouis name.

Peggy, prayers for your kidney situation. Think you are doing right
by just doing a LC WOE right now.

Raw taters not good on tummy.Digestion Problems

If you consume a potato without cooking it, you can experience digestive problems. In order to digest the potato and access the molecules full of starch inside of it, the cellular walls in it must be broken through cooking. If the walls are intact, your body cannot access the starch inside of it. As a result, the raw potato will pass through your digestive system undigested, exiting in the same shape and size as when you consumed it. This can create indigestion, abdominal discomfort, pain, bloating and nausea.

Down another .4 pounds this morning. This is the start of my 4th day on the PH and have gone from 155 to 150.8 today. Most of that weight was probably bloat from overeating the week before but I am happy to see it gone and not have it become permanent weight gain. Plan to stay on the hack for next day and a half until we head out of town for the weekend. My plan for the weekend is to have Saturday be an UD and then do a DD on Sunday which should hopefully start me off on a good track for following JUDDD rotations next week. Happy potato hacking
