Well todays first PH day went well. I felt a little weird around 2pm, but I really only ate 3 medium sized yellow potatoes, and maybe 5 of the little nugget size reds. I figure it's about 400 calories total for the day and I wasn't hungry at any time.
I may try to do this on DD's for a bit and see how it goes, I like the simplicity of it.
I was doing some reading and I may add a low-carb protein shake (the advantEDGE ones that are 100-110 cals) before bed, but at least 4 hours after the last potato meal.

From what I've read, sweet potatoes don't have the same satiety factor that regular potatoes have.

It's day 12 and I'm a little tired of fighting water. It is Tom (which is weird because with my IUD i never get Tom, makes me wonder if taters could effect that?) and all that but I guess it's a bit frustrating to have not lost anything for 5 days. We'll see what happens tomorrow and if it's not drastic I think I might go back to lo-carb for a week or two and then try the hack again. We'll see what tomorrow brings!

Day 1 - 165.8

PH JUDDDing with a bit of a calorie cheat if needed. One day I was just famished and ate 700cals that day including 2 potatoes with 2 tbsp of sqc and 2 tbsp of picante with each tater.

Today I'm taking a weekend break to eat up on protein since surgery looms. I'm at a new post surgery low today.

L-- 4cups slaw mix, 2cups broccoli slaw, 1 cup spinach in 2 tsp bacon grease with g/s/p and 2 over-easy fried eggs

D--6oz ribeye
asparagus in brown butter
blue cheese wedge salad

So will be interesting to see if I gain weight from this. It's an UD today. And tomorrow will do a regular DD. Then Sunday will be another UD with meat and protein...then Monday will see about doing another 3-5 days of PH JUDDD.

(Trying so hard to make my "weight" at the oncologists on Sept 18 (my 51st birthday). I DO NOT want an ath-whoopin' from him on my birthday!

Holy Geez! Lol I said I would quit the hack today if the scale didn't move drastically - so it gave me a four pound loss! Yee haw! . 14.4 pounds in 12 days. Eeeeeee!!! I bought some GREEN plantains last night (thanks helpful ladies!) and some frozen hash browns to liven up the mix. I think after 12 days I might finally be getting a little bored with mashed potatoes. Not REALLY, but some variety might be nice.

Omgosh I also saw those fat free Pringles in the store last night and totally caved. I haven't had a guilt free potato chip in years! Granted, their chemical filled and scary but it's mostly potatoes and fat free and it made me feel like I was having a terrible treat. Also thank goodness Olestra has no ill effects on me .

Any hoo, here's my daily numbers, good luck to you all and happy potatoes!

Day 1 - 165.8
Day 2 - 163.6

Pooti, good job! DH and I have BOTH found that the UP day might move us up a mere pound or so, or not at all - and then the POTATO HACK DOWN days take it down another notch. So interesting, eating this way. We are LOVING IT!

Wow Char! Thanks. Moving up a pound is not a bad bounce at all. How do you eat on your UD?

From last night's menu I actually am down another 3 lbs! (Now I did have a bit of intestinal disturbance yesterday after lunch ... but not 3 lbs worth, right?)

I this weekend I will take a PH break but Monday will do a potato DD. Today will be a regular DD.

Thank you Babsbabs and Buttoni! I just posted my morning of Day 15 update and said goodbye to another 2 pounds. 16.4 pounds in total. I am thinking today will be my last potato day. I don't actually want to quit and I'm not even CLOSE to being tired of potatoes (pretty sure I really am a little crazy) but my husband and friends are a tad weirded out. They can take Atkins but just potatoes is a bit wild and they all think I'm going to die. Plus, I guess eating some vitamin A would be good for me anyways. I haven't been taking a multivitamin (I know, that's probably pretty bad but they make me vomit) and even I'm worried about the vitamins.

I want to confirm for you all that the sugar free hot chocolate never bothered me, I often had one a day. And yesterday I ate an ENTIRE can of those FF Pringles and still lost a pound. Also I was having 3-4 SF hard candies a day. No, this isn't a "re-set" for healthy eating like some use the hack for but when I'm on Atkins I have no problem with healthy eating so this was kind of like a treat vacation with the added benefit of weight loss. And, I like being honest with people.

That doesn't mean I can't come back to it though! Maybe I'll do Atkins for a week and then hack again. I'm REALLY curious about what the weight gain/loss will be like when I start eating lo-carb again. I'm hoping for at least a stall, lol. I hold on to so much water with this that I imagine I'll lose some with locarb.

With locarb we're supposed to eat high-fat but I'm wondering if maybe the first couple days back on I should count calories a bit? Going from zero fat to gobs of it seems like a recipe for weight gain. I don't know, there's so much guess work.

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
Day 11 156.4
Day 12 155.0
Day 13 151.4
Day 14 150.0
Day 15 149.0

Wow, Lindystar I am amazed at how much weight you lost on the Hack. I do suspect that when I went off my 7? day hack I think that fat gave me weird stomach cramps. Nothing that slowed me down too much but wanted to mention that in case you find the same thing.

Thank you Babs, that is great to know, that way I won't think it's something else. I would have assumed the fiber. I will take it slow on the fat then.

Amazing results, ladies! I'm really thinking of giving this another go.

I do know from reading up on (of course) very low fat juice fasts that it's recommended to start lower in fat and then increase for digestive reasons after the fast. Maybe try a 30% fat macro for the first day or so before increasing?

Thanks to all for sharing. Fascinating!

An FYI about what's happened two days post hack. The first day off I had amazing plans of low-fat lo-carb to ease my way back on. Phhhft. It wasn't TO bad, but there were some pastries involved *head smack* The second day I went back to straight up lo-carb like I was eating before.

Day one after I went up to 150.6 (from 149)
Day two back to 150.2

I'm thrilled!!!! I'm going to eat on plan lo-carb for the next week and watch the scales. I would like to start a potato hack again TOMORROW, I swear to gawsh, I really, honestly loved eating potatoes all day! But I think some vitamins and minerals that I wasn't getting before might be in order. So, a week or two and I'll be back to taters! See ya'll then!

Hooray!!! Back down all the weight I gained back the day after the finished potato hack, so it only took two days to normalize! YEEEE!!! I'm using around 20 carbs a day right now but will move slowly up to 25. 25-30 seems to be my sweet spot for losing.

Now that I know for sure that those 16.8 pounds aren't going to come rushing back on I'm even MORE fired up to hack again!

I regained 6.4 lbs on a feeding frenzy vacation trip for 10 days. (It was so fun) After 3 days back on the ph I am down 4.4 of them. I'm feeling good about this. I want to lose 7 more.

tried the hack

I have been lurking on LCF for some time, reading pages and pages of your experiences with JUDDD. I have never posted on here myself, but I feel like I know some of you from reading your many posts, and I like the "energy" coming from everyone on this site! I became particularly interested in this potato hack idea. I was just a couple weeks into P3 of my 1st HcG round, but so intrigued by the tater hack idea that I had to try it. I did it for 4 days. In the first 3 days, I lost 5.2 lbs (woohoo!) and after day 4, went up .8 (Hmmm...tried the salsa con queso idea that Ouizoid suggested but used a brand that had 3g of fat per 2T...maybe that was just too much). Yesterday (day 5) I ate potatoes only until dinner, which was my first "combined meal" in 5 days. That was a meal at a restaurant, following the general guidelines of the Perfect Health Diet (except for the 2 bloody mary drinks, without alcohol). This morning I was up another 3#'s! I don't remember seeing others have this big a bounce upwards upon returning to "normal" eating. It definitely seemed like my body "liked" the potato hack.... but I on the other hand am not so excited about undoing it all in one meal! Any thoughts from others who have been at this longer? I am tempted to give the hack another run after a day or 2 off...

My weight bounces around quite a bit. It was up almost four pounds today after a big salt-fest last night - the rest of the KFC chicken, leftover hot wings with bleu cheese dressing, leftover fried pickles, clam chowder. I just chalk it up to the salt/water retention.

I do every other day potatoes though. The days in between are our "up" days. So far it's working really well.

Lady, yep, zero fat, just spuds, one plantain that didn't bother me, a packet of s.f. Fat free hot cocoa some days and at the end zero fat Pringles were added in too. None of it ever bothered me.

Aaaaaaand I'M BACK!

I did regular low carb for a week and lost a whole half pound.

I've been LC for so long now that I'm tired of the snails pace yet still REALLY grateful for all that it's done for me. This weekend was a holiday here so I took three days to eat anything I wanted before starting potatoes for another 2 or 3 weeks. But because of lo-carb training??? I didn't want chips or chocolate, pasta never even crossed my mind, candy ect. I wanted fruit and cereal with milk . So any hoo, I ate way too much cereal and milk, have bounced up 4 pounds of water and I'm sure some fat and am ready to go back to spuds. I want to get RID of these last 22 pounds and just be done with it. (Lol, it was 18 pounds before all that cereal ).

I lost 16 pounds in 14 days last time, and I'm excited to see what will happen this time! I'm going to record here every day again because it really helps keep me motivated.

Locarb has been wonderful to me and a great way to maintain but I have dreams of drinking milk and eating fruit some day. So, here we go potatoes and then on to maintenance!

Day 1 - 152.8

I'm sure you'll do just as well on your second hack, Lindy! I had my kidney tests done yesterday and see the doc on Thursday. If the evaluation is good and my creatinine numbers are back down to the normal range, I'm starting my next hack right away. I, too, want to get my last 22# off, by year's end if possible.
