It's morning of day four of my PH and I'm down another THREE pounds! Holy crap??

So it's gone like this so far,

Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6
Day 3 - 161.4
Day 4 - 158.4

I'm pretty flabbergasted but surely happy. I went to buy spices and vinegar yesterday and ended up buying $40 worth. Have y'all SEEN the spice isle lately??? It's amazing! I was amazed by all of the different choices and went a little nuts . I tried a couple when I came home but missed my regular old mashed with chicken broth. And darn it I was so excited by spices that I forgot to get more broth! DOH! I live on the border in Mexico and only go grocery shopping in the states once a week or two. Here in Mexico they're big on bullion cubes but I can't find broth. Ah we'll, time to make those spices count!

I have no clue how much I'm eating, a lot though I think. I add extra broth and water to my mashed to get more volume and feel fuller.

Gaining making you want to eat? If you mean stress/disappointment eating then yes, I really do get that. Or are you worried that you're not eating enough? Are you drinking lots of water?

We're gonna try the mashed taters tomorrow! DH is looking forward to it.

This is a potato day too. We are going to my Dad's for dinner on Saturday (I think anyway, he hasn't called to confirm that) so much to my surprise DH suggested we do two potato hack days in a row! Today and tomorrow.

Oh, here's my newest twice baked tater - 1 large baked potato, split in half lengthwise. Scoop innards into a large bowl, put potato skin shells on a foil-lined baking pan; add to the innards, 2 tablespoons Costco's bacon bits, 4 tablespoons LaTerra spinach/parmesan yogurt dip (also from Costco) and a smidge of garlic powder. Mix all together, load up in the potato skins, bake at 400* to warm innards/toast the skin. Eat one stuffed tater skin. Save the other one for dinner. Heaven!

Low cal and low fat yumminess.

I have 600 calories of potatoes on the menu for tomorrow's DD. Should be interesting! I have no plans to PH on UDs, but maybe on DDs if I end up liking it.

Ok, so it's PH DD for me, and I gotta say - 600 calories of potatoes doesn't seem like much, LOL.

I know they are supposedly satisfying, but as a volume eater I am looking at this small pile of potatoes and feeling like I'm going to starve. I have no doubt I'll stick with it, but I already can't wait for today to be over.

Hoping someone will check in here soon as I have another question before I eat my first potato today.

Do you calculate the calories based on raw weight or cooked weight?

I go by the calories listed on the potato bag, which is raw.

Another thought - it's almost always raw, unless the information you're looking at specifies that the calorie count is for a cooked potato. HTH!

Ah, true - my brain isn't working today. I was hopeful that it was cooked weight because I nuked my first potato too long and it shriveled up to nothing. It started at 7.2 oz. and ended at 2.1 oz. It still tasted good even though it was dried out . Guess I was really hungry

I need some motivation to stay on PH . . . I'm on day two of cold cooked potatoes w/seasonings. I have not been counting calories, and have not "cheated". Yesterday I had a lot of energy but today I'm rather listless. I've had lots of water and walked 3 miles this morning. Has anyone else had a similar drop in energy? I've noticed some people sub the PH for the DD, others will do PH for several days in a row. Any consensus on what works best? Perhaps when I weigh tomorrow I will see a good result and that will keep me going. My plan was a 5 day PH and then back to JUDDD for a week or two. Feel free to send your suggestions!

I lost 7 pounds in my first 4 days of the hack and I never once ate them cold. I say heat them up so you can actually enjoy your food

Thanks Lindystar! I will try it for dinner. How do you prepare your mashed potatoes? Just w/broth? Do you think I need to eat more? I've had three potatoes so far today.

Day 6 under way!

Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6
Day 3 - 161.4
Day 4 - 158.4
Day 5 - 158.0
Day 6 - 158.4

I'm not freaked by the level off today, my body is probably fighting with water and change, I'm going to continue on, I'm enjoying myself too much to quit!

OH my GAWD, I found a spice, it's McCormick and part of the grillin' line. It's called bacon molasses (or molasses bacon, one of the two) and it's crazy good!! I usually eat Goya brand Adobo with everything but this is something I'm adding in. It's spicy, sweet and smokey. I don't know if it actually tastes like bacon or molasses but whatever it is it's goooooood!

And thank you to who ever recommended smoked paprika, it too is delish

I boil them in chicken broth and then mash, they come out a LITTLE soupy but it'd makes the even more satisfying. While boiling I also add some tomato chicken bullion powder. That really helps make them sooooo good, you don't miss butter I swear it. On my plate I sprinkle with Goya adobo season (or just use salt and pepper or whatever makes you happy) and call it wonderland

I've been eating almost a five pound bag a day, probably 4 pounds or a little more. I don't like being hungry and I don't want to go into major starvation mode. . Good luck to you!

Another for ltighe - I tried a recipe I found here last night as well. I sliced them thin and layered them in a microwaveable dish. I half covered them in broth and added in some onion powder, dried onion pieces and other spices. I microwaved it for a long time till the bottom wash gooey wonderful and the top was like chewy chips. It was heaven and I had a hard time stopping. You're supposed to do it in the oven but the mic. Worked fine for me

Thanks again! For another quick snack I'm going to warm them and try the smokehouse maple/bacon seasoning in my pantry.

I have grown to really like cold boiled Yukon Golds. I keep them boiled and in the frig. DH has been caught snacking on cold potatoes frequently lately. Salt them and I am happy. The more boring my food the better for me.

I'm doing my potatoes cold boiled too. I think it would be fine if I was eating to satisfaction but 600 cals of potatoes isn't doing it for me. I've eaten half and can't wait for the other half tonight.

I usually end my DDs with something sweet and am seriously considering cinnamon and sweetener on one of my potatoes. Does that spell desperation or what?!

I was considering doing the same for a change! (On a side note, I ate two potatoes warmed/mashed in broth with seasonings and felt much better!)

I am sorry but the idea of sweetener on a cold boiled potato does seem a bit like desperation. The first few times I tried potato DD's I was starving and could have eaten 2400 calories in potatoes BUT after a few it got better and 600 was plenty;.

Hahaha! I totally agree! I think I'll slice one thinly, use a little zero cal spray butter, cinnamon and sweetener and roast the slices or broil them. It will probably be weird, but that's never stopped me before.

You guys are making me want to try this again. Maybe the third time is a charm. My blood sugar got really low on it both times before

Lol no way is it desperate! I read in a thread either here or in the recipe section that someone makes "grits" or kind of like cream-of-wheat with mashed potatoes. They were adding in fake maple flavoring, vanilla, almond, chocolate, all sorts. I think their favorite ended up being maple vanilla.

Lol when I get crazy for something sweet I'm totally going to try it, already bought the stuff.

Go for it!
