Potato calories??

I just google calories in potatoes. If a large potato is 258 calories I looked up the weight on a scale to be sure it said it was 300.0g. So I went one step further and that came to 300=10.58 oz. Does that seem like alot of potato? Maybe once you put it on the scale its not as much as it sounds? Just want to be sure I got this right before I eat one.

Well, a whole pound of potatoes is about 470 calories. Try to see in your head how five piles of potatoes would look like if you divided up a 5-pound bag of potatoes into separate piles on your kitchen counter.

The potato you are describing, over 10˝ oz, is a very large potato! I don't think any of the bags I bring home from the grocery contain potatoes of that size!

I got 90 calories for 4 oz. of russet potatoes. My smaller/almost medium sized russets are right around 4 oz. if that gives you a visual.

when I looked up potato on an online calorie counter that I trust, I got 1oz = 26 cal

so 10oz would be about 260 cal. You got 300, which is pretty close. Maybe there's some varietal variations, skin/no skin, not sure.

try doing it without a scale I'm just estimating by size and calling it good. We'll see what happens at tomorrow morning's weight in

It may be that this hack only works if you forget DD/UD--and just eat taters for a number of days--not sure!

I eat potatoes in several ways pretty often, but only on Up Days. It's a new possibility for me to think of them as a possible Down Day food as well.

I've had a baked potato with yogurt instead of sour cream this morning, potato salad with celery, onion, and pickle relish for lunch, and the stuffed cheesy/bacon potato skins for supper, so a very potato day, and absolutely delicious.

I'll be interested to see what the morning brings when I step on the scale.

Seem too calorie dense and not satisfying enough for me. I've had, now, three potatoes...well, eating my last one and have gone over calories (including coffee and cream)...don't see how I could have eaten less and been happy.

I've eaten mine with nothing but 0 cal spray butter and salt/pepper. It's amazing you were able to eat that well and within calorie range, Nancy! I must be doing something wrong, lol.

My large baking potato was 15 oz (uncooked) and about 6 inches long - a standard restaurant size potato, not really huge but almost a pound. 390 calories. I have had half so far today with S&P and some broth. I will have the other half when I get home. I am hungry.....

I have never dieted for any length of time my entire life. I am totally not used to deprivation and don't really find hunger "fun". I also don't like when I'm over-full, but I have always been a big eater, even when I was small...people at work called me Mikey, when I weighed 120 lbs and it was cute. Not so cute when you weigh 200 lbs, lol. I am surviving on so much less than I ever thought possible on DD's, but can't imagine having less than 100 calories...or even less than 500...I really hope I can eventually *enjoy* DD's. Right now they're something to get through.

I found the potato day to be less satisfying than my cabbage and laughing cow dish. BUT...if this helps the scale move I would do it more often for sure. I put salsa on top of my taters ,very good!

It will be a long time before I attempt potato day again. Still haven't weighed today, but if it's less than a 5 lb loss, I'm ditching the potato diet.

I dropped almost 3 pounds after my DD yesterday below my usual weight after a DD so I am going to keep going and give an UD a whirl with potatoes. Wasn't bad at all but I ate double my usual DD calories too. Had 400.

This is how I feel too. I lost 2 pounds, but I was due for that loss (at least) anyway, getting rid of the holiday bloat. Did the potatoes help? Maybe. My normal menu is less calories and more satisfying though.
