Let us know how it goes! Looks like we need a PH recipe thread. Potatoes are the new cauliflower!

Oh know, I hope this isn't true for everyone. I finished my first PDD at 542 calories and although I really enjoyed the cold Yukon Gold potatoes with salt, pepper, and vinegar, I felt starving the entire day and beyond exhausted. I don't check blood sugar levels but I felt fine all day, not the rush that I sometimes get after eating cereal for instance. It will be interesting what the scale shows tomorrow. I check in with my assessment in the morning.

My first day of all potatoes today, I weighed out a pound of "creamer" potatoes (cute baby potatoes) boiled them, rinsed well with cold water until they were cool then put them in the fridge. I have had 3 so far, they were great just plain! The only thing that stinks is I'm REALLY wanting my coffee but I use 1/2 & 1/2 and I know fat on this hack is a no no....or is it just on the potatoes?

I can't imagine doing it as a down day and only eating 600 calories worth, but then I think others might not be able to imagine eating anything BUT unlimited potatoes for more than one day

I only felt crappy once the first day, totally got the shakes but cleared up after eating some more mashed. Then a weee bit the second day when I had went too long at work without having a chance to eat but nothing since.

I actually paid attention yesterday and it looks like I'm eating more like 5 pounds of potatoes a day. All hot or warm, although I did have one that was raw (yummm for me, not for some)

I even found some sugar free fat free hot chocolate mix and threw one in my coffee yesterday. It only has one gram of protein and didn't seem to effect anything. It was a nice treat. Here's the numbers so far -



Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6
Day 3 - 161.4
Day 4 - 158.4
Day 5 - 158.0
Day 6 - 158.4
Day 7 - 157.8

8 pounds so far. Granted most of the weight was lost those first few days but it's slowly moving down again, I'm going to stick with it. I'm still not tired of potatoes and I feel great so I figure why not. Here goes to another week!

Hey, Lindy! Fancy meeting you here!?! Welcome to LCF forums! I've been out of town helping my Mom in San Antonio and just got back to this thread today. I see you decided to jump right in and are doing VERY well! WTG, girlfriend! I'm having some lab work done Sept. 16th (glucose, A1C, some kidney tests and maybe more to see why my creatinine levels went to 2.6 when they were at .7 before that). I think it was due to some steroid medication I was on for a lupin flour allergic reaction, but just not sure. So I'm not going to be able to get back to my Potato Hacking until after that as I just don't want to skew those tests. But I'm sure glad it seems to be working for you. I can't wait to get back on my next hack and see that scale go down once again.

RE: calories - I always weigh the potatoes COOKED as that's what I'm eating, not raw. If you go to CalorieKing you can get the cooked cals there - IIRC it's about 26/ounce.

DH did not fare well on the mashed taters, for some reason. He got very hungry not long after eating them. So back to what works - ovenroasted!

Try coffee without 1/2 & 1/2. I was able to get used to it with only sweetener. I will drink a couple of cups hot in the morning w cinnamon and a packet of stevia. Then in the afternoon I'll finish the pot over ice with stevia or a sugar-free, calorie-free syrup (DaVinci). I found that coffee helped to suppress my appetite and keep my energy up while I was figuring out how to make the potato hack work best for me. Good luck!

Hi,
I haven't been on here in a while. I have been struggling with stomach issues, but now that that has been diagnosed (IBS) I am ready to get back to JUDDD. I have a question on the potato hack. It seems from reading some of the posts that some people limit their calories on DD with only potatoes and others do not count calories, just eating to satiety. What is the best way to do a potato hack?

Also, I wanted to mention a way I have roasted potatoes in the past that even my teenage boys would eat. I heard about a recipe in a cookbook by the personal chef for Oprah. You take 1 egg white and beat it slightly. Toss your cubed or sliced potatoes in the egg white to coat and drain off any extra egg white. Spread on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the spices of your choice. Roast as usual. Not only does the egg white help the spices adhere, it also moistens the potatoes. The only way you would know about the egg white is if there is extra in a spot that "puddles" and cooks.

I am looking forward to getting back into JUDDD!

Laura

People always ask this question: Eat to satiety or eat DD calories??
I think it is very individual and whatever works. I personally only eat 600 calories of taters for a DD. If I am doing an actual PH, I eat to appetite, but that is over 4-5 days. I have no idea if it works to eat to appetite on a DD, and then eat regular food on an UD.

Just a total speculation: could it be the chew factor? Or, lack of chew for mashed?

I think it might be as simple as the water factor. With mashed you eat a lot more liquid without realizing it, the body processes it quick and you're left with not eating nearly as much solids. All I eat (pretty much) is mashed, but I'm eating them all day long.

3 pound drop last night! Weeeee!! 8 days and 11 pounds so far. OH my gawsh.

Buttoni!!! Hello friend! I can't thank you enough for being brave enough to share the hack over on the other low carb site, lol what a 180 right? But it's doing absolute wonders for me! I don't have cravings (Isn't that nuts? you'd think eating carbs I'd be a craving monster??) I'm losing like a crazy person and I'm eating.... potatoes!

I'm always craving (like wildly craving!) BBQ sauce when I'm on Atkins and thought "woo hoo!!!" I can have it now! I ate some? And meh. I don't get it, the flavor just didn't appeal, so strange. No cravings for sweets or anything else either.

I will let you guys know I DID have another (TWO) packets of that sugar free fat free hot chocolate mix yesterday. I ate like a pig, drank those and still managed to drop that 3 pounds so I guess they don't hurt anything. I also drink about a half gallon of homemade green tea (with liquid stevia) per day along with other liquids.

Ooo! And that spice I was talking about, it's Molasses Bacon. I've gone through half of the container this week I'm so crazy addicted. Anyhoo, here's the latest stats -

Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6
Day 3 - 161.4
Day 4 - 158.4
Day 5 - 158.0
Day 6 - 158.4
Day 7 - 157.8
Day 8 - 154.8

I think I'll give it a try again, maybe W-T-F since I have too much stuff going on today through Tuesday.
I have to admit I loved, loved the shredded ones in the waffle maker. So crispy and just tasty.

Ouis, thanks for the info re: mashed making folks hungry - DH feels better that it wasn't all in his head now!

We've been conjecturing about the reason for it - mashing breaks up the fiber more, hence less filling? I only used a tiny bit of chicken stock to mash, then loaded the mash back into the two tater skin shells and heated it up - maybe hot vs. cold, which is how he normally eats his oven-roasted taters - so not getting the resistant starch effect? I don't think there was enough liquid in there to make a difference! LESS than 2 tablespoons. but I DO know he won't want to try it again any time soon!

I mashed up a pot full of reds my last hack, left the skins on, used some of the boiling broth for my liquid. I added as little boiling liquid as possibly, just enough allow me to mush them all up good. They were REAL thick, in other words. I found them quite filling and ate on them a couple days just heated up in the MW slightly to get the chill off. As with all other aspect of this (or any diet), I think individuals react uniquely to each form of the potato. The cold boiled satisfy me the least. Days I lean on those, I'm hungry every couple hours. When I eat them other ways, I'm more satisfied. Dunno why really.

One recipe I particularly felt satisfied with was the baked, sliced in minimal broth, with a wee bit of bell pepper and onion flakes added to the broth or on top of the final dish. I used to fix potatoes that way pre-hacking, pre-LC days. Sooooo good that way. They cook up soft on the bottom and chewy on the top.

Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6
Today's update . I bought some plantains yesterday. I'm a little confused about them though, they were definetly not regular bananas but they were pretty sweet, not like a regular banana but still sweet. I do live in Mexico and they were off of a lady's tree, super ripe so maybe that's it? They were still kinda chewy but really pretty darn GOOD. I actually ate a whole one and it was gigantor. Shouldn't do that often I guess, I don't know.

Day 3 - 161.4
Day 4 - 158.4
Day 5 - 158.0
Day 6 - 158.4
Day 7 - 157.8
Day 8 - 154.8
Day 9 - 155.4

I think we are looking at green bananas/plantains for resistant starch? Isn't that right?

According to this:
Resistant starch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A slightly green banana has the most resistant starch.
However, I do believe the potato hack basis is that potatoes are more appetite satiating and that's why it seems to work best: less calories than eating bananas, peas or lentils.
Though I may give cold lentil salad a try - just cooked lentils, sliced green onions(or any onions), salt, pepper and vinegar.
Although I used to add green peas to mashed potatoes, lol and green peas are high on the list, too!

Have any of you done cucumbers on a potato hack? I'm on a DD today. I'm tempted to try a potato DD. Do you think it would hurt to have a thinly sliced cucumber in vinegar with it?

Yikes, I'm sooo not surprised by the upturn in numbers this morning, I'm sooooo water logged. My face is puffy and even my fingers were swollen this morning and hurt. When my fingers hurt I know it's a lot. Ah well, I've got a half gallon of green tea at work with me and in going to drink this away! I'll look forward to tomorrow's number

Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6
Day 3 - 161.4
Day 4 - 158.4
Day 5 - 158.0
Day 6 - 158.4
Day 7 - 157.8
Day 8 - 154.8
Day 9 - 155.4
Day 10 156.0

I was busy this weekend and didn't have time to post the results of my first PDD on Friday. I lost 3.2 pounds but then quickly gained it all back during the course of the long weekend. I would like to try it again sometime this week but the hunger I felt the entire day and the fatigue weren't fun at all so I would need to figure something out.

I have been reading through this thread from the beginning and I have come across several posts that mention using the COOKED weight to figure out total calories for the day. Can someone clarify the right way to count calories on a PDD?

I used the raw weight to calculate the calories, however, the difference between the raw and cooked weight of my potatoes was 10.1 ounces! It may seem trivial but that extra weigh 10.1 oz. could be the difference between feeling hungry all day and feeling satisfied and would amount to approximately two extra pots. That's huge in my book!

Bee, if you're eating them hot - try eating them cold. Makes a HUGE difference to DH. He had a devil of a day when he tried eating hot mashed potatoes, but does really well with cold ovenroasted potatoes. Go figure!
