Monday starter here too! My sweetie and I are going to try 5 days, nothing but potatoes and spices/vinegar. Getting a 25 pound sack of russets and stocking up on all sorts of flavored vinegars. Kinda looking forward to it, since my rotations haven't been producing any change on the scale for me....

Okay, I'm going to give it a whirl. How I'm going to explain this to my JUDDDing, hflc-ing man, the guy who has followed me down this (and almost every) road and accepted everything I've told him about why this is good for his blood pressure and general health, I DO NOT KNOW.

Drumroll please. 141.6 this morning. I am eating my hash browns for breakfast and have my potatoes boiling for the day. I am finding I really liker the smaller potatoes boiled and cold. I just eat them as a finger food with nothing else. I was going to end this tomorrow but if I can see 139 just once I will be happy.
I had been bouncing between 144.8 and up to 147.8 or 148.8. Now 144 is my high bounce. Just like I was looking for.

You know when you're little and your mum says, "Don't just follow anyone. What if anyone walked off a cliff? Would you follow then?"
Well, mum, I'd follow Adi anywhere. Here I go.

Explain this a temporary measure used occasionally to enhance metabolic and insulin adjustment.



Reassure him that this is not just any old hack, this is a biohack!!!!

Now that is easy.
Buy a bag of small potatoes
Wash potatoes
Place in boiling water
Remove when cooked
Place in sandwich bags in frig and eat as needed.

Easiest diet I have ever followed. I started using salsa and baking the potatoes but boiled and cold is the easiest and I am pretty busy right now so cold it is.
Except hashbrowns for breakfast cooked in my little sandwich maker that hasn't been used since DS was in elementary school. It looks happy to be out of the dark cabinet. My thumb is still very sore but looks to be healing from the first day of grating my potatoes without a glove on. Ouch.

Come on off the cliff Joy. I am so surprised that this is so easy. Not at all hard like the nutritional ketosis thing I tried and then gained every ounce right back.

Gotsomeold, that's what I plan to tell my family when they question my, yet another, foray into weird diet experiments. LOL

Fasting bg this morning was 73. Which is pretty incredible. I haven't been checking for months, because I haven't really been eating any foods that tend to cause spikes (or when I do, I KNOW it spikes, so why bother checking?). Back in Jan-Mar when I was testing how JUDDD was affecting me, it ran around 89ish. Interesting.

Plan to do just black decaf for breakfast like any other dd. Then have yukons boiled in broth for lunch and supper. The little bag I bought will be 330 cals if I eat the whole thing, divided in 2 meals.

I have to admit I am now addicted to this thread! I look forward to reading everyones experiences! I am doing the potato diet on Sunday!!! hope to do it for a week or as long as I can last. So happy for you Adi!!! woo hoo!

I am thinking if this diet works, I can eat juddd style maintence level and do a few days of potato diet a month to help me get to my goal wt.... But lets see if it works first. this is such an exciting new diet! I love potatoes! I am just soo hungry lately and have such bad carb cravings its been really hard to stick with my DD. I have read this potato diet will help some people with their carb cravings. So I am hoping I will be able to stick more to my dd afterwards.

Back in May I was weighing 143, then after several vacations and trips with out having a chance or willpower to keep up my rotations or just rotating the best I could, I am now 171!!! . But it's my fault. Now got to get the weight off. .....

I don't know if my potato DD triggered something but today I lost my 1.5 UD pizza fest weight from Wednsday and an additional pound The potato day was the only different thing I did this week, but since that Tuesday I've lost a total of 2.5lbs. I'm definitely going to do another potato DD next week on Monday, to see if it triggers another loss ripple

Just a thought here... make sure if you are doing the potato thing that you don't add the extras of fat and protein (slices of roast beef) because that tends to ruin the potato diet effect, and if your still doing JUDDD, but eating potato on your DD with roast beef or anything else, make sure you have kept your DD calories where they need to be, even as you include potato in the day. Just saying, one or the other will probably be great, but neither may work very well if the two plans are combined and then both are being done incorrectly. (But I may have misunderstood your calories/eating yesterday..)

Sounds like all you potato dieters are going Great Guns so far! How easy is that?!!! I've never been one who bought into the potatoes and rice will kill you stance, so I'm not surprised that potatoes are doing nicely for everyone. Lots of folks ate heavily on potatoes and with not much of anything additional back in the depression era, and for the most part, they stayed healthy and strong. And SLIM.

I am curious how long it takes to digest a potato/for it to do it's magic with our bodies stored fat On my potato day Tuesday (a DD), I ate my last potato around 2ish I think, and then had some chicken broth at night. I was down 1.5lbs the next morning, so the broth didn't seem to affect anything, though it only had 1 gram of fat in it. I wonder if having it several hours after the potato made a difference? Next week when I do another DD potato day I'm going to do the same thing-cut off the potatoes late afternoon, wait 3ish hours and then have chicken broth. We'll see what happens

Yeah, I wouldn't think chicken broth would count as anything against the success of the potato diet. I doubt there's enough of anything including fat in that to jolt the potato diet off course.

I'm often down a pound or two after a Down Day, but not because of any of the foods I ate or didn't eat, but mainly because of how little I ate. LOL My intestines get empty I guess.

Ok, tomorrow is a DD and I am going to try a potato day.

I have been, um, "maintaining" for two months, and although I am pretty happy where I am, I am up 5 from my most recent low. And of course, here come the holidays...

My allottment is only 341 cals, but I like potatoes, and cooking in broth and roasting sounds good to me.

We'll see and I'll get back to you. Interesting thread. Thanks.

Having a potato DD. 400 g of Charlotte potatoes = 300 it appears.

Enjoyed a few at around midday with salt, pepper and vinegar. Now 4.30 ish and a few more with some nice spicy salsa. May eat the rest warmed up for dinner.

Very easy and I do love potatoes.

OOOOps I should have read the latest few posts, no more salsa for me.

no idea on calories--I really don't track calories like everyone else here, unless I'm doing a DD--I am trying to just eat to appetite and watch the scale and be a little less obsessive--but yes, no weight gain and yes, I ate a protein shake for breakfast, chicken and salad for lunch, a couple of cheesesticks and a piece of 100% cacao for snack and a caesar salad and a big bowl of pork posole for dinner, and the scale didn't budge.

Oh, and I forgot to weigh in this morning so I'll have no idea how much I've lost. It is at least 4 days since I got on the scales.

Hey now that in itself is amazing! Thanks JUDDD.

I've done two potato only down days, but I've mixed them with what were probably minor UUADs because of birthday dinners, so results are highly unscientific right now. I haven't done any damage with the birthday dinners (win!) but I haven't really lost, either, and I don't have a controlled enough experiment to be able to evaluate the effectiveness of down day only all potatoes. I might try three potato days in a row next time I am feeling like I want to pick things up, just to see. End of highly uninformative potato post.

I really want to try this, but have not really gotten the JUDDD rotations down yet. I think I will stick to regular JUDDD till after the holidays and then maybe try a week of 'taters' or maybe wait till I hit a stall.

Good luck to all of you. I hope it works. It would be nice to have a 'stall breaker' in the diet toolbox.

If anything, I think salsa (5 cal/tbsp) would be preferable to ketchup (20 cal/tbsp), which is cooked down and high in sugar...assuming sugar is something to be avoided on this diet.
