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.

Wow Lindy! So you ate potatoes (mainly) for those 14 or so days? Amazing!

WOE: Atkins, LC, JUDDD, HcG, moving towards PHD
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.

Hubby ran an errand today and surprised me and brought home 2 bags of potatoes for me to start tomorrow. But I'm starting at 173 and aiming to get to 150 by my birthday Dec 31st. It's my birthday present to myself. WE CAN DO THIS!

I hope your test results are good today Buttoni!
My PH day one was good. I am down -.4 so am 152.8 this morning. Made mashed potatoes with chicken broth and salt and pepper last night and enjoyed them! I plan to make the hash browns later this morning.

Oh, Happy Days! My labs came back with normal creatinine levels so the kidneys are A-OK. Whew! What a relief. She agreed with me it was likely my immune system's response to my somewhat bizarre skin allergic reaction to lupin flour in Feb and March. The steroid cream they gave me for that would have additionally stressed my kidneys, on top of the allergen it was trying to get rid of. More good news, my triglycerides are 112, HDL up from 47 to 60, LDL down from 120 to 110. More good news, she's halving my BP med dose, and may even take me off it completely, since some days it dips so low (106/60) I get dizzy.

So I'm in, starting weight 173, confirmed in doctor's office. When I got home I had a baked red potato with chopped chives, S & P.

Thanks Charski for your reply. I decided to do JUDDD and try the every other day potato hack, as you are doing. Been on that routine for maybe a week now, and it does seem to be working very nicely. I've lost 5-6 pounds overall and now going without too many big swings back and forth. Sure makes it easy on the down days not to have to think too hard about what you're going to eat!

Thanks, Anne. I am too. Congrats on your losses on the PH so far. This seems to agree with you. And look at you, girl.....getting closer and closer to goal! I'm going to try to stick this hack out to the end of the month. That'll be 10 days.

Day 3 results You know it's funny, on the last hack I was reeaaalllyyy water bloated, every morning I looked terrible in the face, but this time not happening so far. I haven't had the chance to eat as much as normal the past two days (I missed one meal each day that I would have liked to eat) so maybe that extra salt-loss has something to do with it. Whoooo knows.

I found more frozen fat free potatoes in the freezer section and really am loving them. I got the "home fries" and the regular shredded potatoes. If I shred them at home they cook up terribly but the frozen ones come out beautiful. I add in some chopped onion and it really is bliss.

Day 1 - 152.8
Day 2 - 152.8
Day 3 1 151.0

Unmodified Potato Starch

I'm curious how those of you including powdered unmodified potato starch in your PHacks.....HOW are you consuming it? Stirred into cold mashed taters? Stirred into some liquid? I have some on hand and want to start adding it, but not sure how to go about that. I've been reading a bunch about resistant starch today (not a new topic for me, but doing further reading about it) and came across the most interesting article that says POTATO CHIPS and CORN TORTILLAS are high in resistant starch!! Man, I could get off to adding some of THOSE to my hack and see if the oil used to fry them causes any issues on my hacks. I'm copy/pasting an article I came across on my food tracking site (which I'll not name, but you guys know which one I use by now) for anyone interested in reading it. I was totally surprised at some of the foods on the list of foods high in RS:


Resistant Starch: A Powerful Nutrient
Recent buzz about an exciting nutrition breakthrough may finally kick the low-carb diet craze to the curb. New research shows that you can add back certain starchy foods that were once thought to be diet disasters. The powerful nutrient that has dietitians and other healthcare professionals talking is called resistant starch. Although you may unfamiliar with this term, it's likely been a staple part of your diet for years.

What is resistant starch? It's is a type of carbohydrate found in certain fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, and some dairy foods. Unlike other carbohydrates, resistant starch isn't entirely broken down by the body, which is how it got its name because it "resists" digestion. Although resistant starch is molecularly similar to a carbohydrate, it is digested like fiber, meaning it passes into the large intestine intact. Nutrition experts have begun to classify resistant starch as a type of fiber.

But resistant starch may have an added benefit that soluble and insoluble fibers don't have. Once it reaches the large intestine, resistant starch is fermented, which creates a beneficial fatty acid called butyrate. Butyrate may block your liver's ability to use carbohydrates for fuel, which in turn causes stored body fat and recently consumed dietary fat to be burned for fuel instead. Since carbohydrate is your body's preferred form of fuel, cutting off access to carbohydrate may force your body to turn to fat as an alternative fuel source.

A recent study showed that replacing 5.4% of the total carbohydrate in a meal with resistant starch increased fat oxidation (large fat molecules are broken down into smaller molecules, which are then used for energy) by 20-30%. Another interesting finding from this study was that the increased fat oxidation continued throughout the day, not just immediately following the meal containing resistant starch. Results from animal studies have shown that resistant starch causes animals to produce more satiety-inducing hormones, which could ultimately lead to weight loss.

Recent studies have found that resistant starch also helps prevent constipation and improve colon health. Emerging research has also proven that resistant starch can help improve blood glucose levels and decrease insulin resistance in people who have type 2 diabetes. Resistant starch can also increase absorption of certain minerals, including calcium. It's also thought to prevent some types of cancer.

Resistant starch can be found in many foods, but there are certain foods that contain high amounts of this miracle nutrient. Foods with highly-concentrated amounts of resistant starch include oats, puffed wheat cereal, slightly green bananas, whole-grain breads, Italian and sourdough bread, legumes (beans and peas), cooked and cooled potatoes and yams, cooked and cooled rice and pasta (both whole-grain and refined grain), cooked plantains, corn flakes, rice cereal, potato chips, corn tortillas, barley, and millet.

How much resistant starch is recommended per day? While there is no current established recommendation, research studies have shown that eating 6-12 grams of resistant starch daily has beneficial effects on blood glucose and insulin levels, but about 20 grams daily is needed to have positive effects on your digestive system. Americans currently average 3-8 grams/day.

Buttoni, I've been eating the fat free sour cream and onion Pringles chips on both hacks and they don't bother me one bit. Not exactly chemical free but they're yummy and fun

Today's update -

Day 1 - 152.8
Day 2 - 152.8
Day 3 - 151.0
Day 4 - 150.0

Yesssssss

buttoni--I add resistant starch to my water. I take it 1 TBL at a time in a cup of water. Tastes like flour water to me, but I have had worse. I just take it to get it over with. I am sure others have tastier ideas on what to do with it.

Hi Buttoni! I have only recently begun posting on here (altho have been avidly reading all these pages of posts for weeks). Thank you for this latest posting on resistant starch.... absolutely fascinating! It just flies in the face of all that we have been taught for decades. I am now beginning to understand why my LC program worked great for a while, but then hit the great plateau. Who would have ever thunk that potatoes and the like might be our saving grace?! Being Irish, I am enjoying that irony! I am with you on the potato chips -- one of my faves that I never thought I could eat again. I wonder if ANYone (commercially) makes chips in an omega3 oil and whether that would make them OK for us? You've inspired me to dig deeper on this issue....
