Potato hack 1st day, 6:12 pm:

Wow -- still feel weird and shaky. I also had to take a nap this afternoon, which is something I never do. I'm not sure what my blood sugar level is right now, as I don't have testing equipment -- I'm guessing it's low. I don't feel like this agrees with me, so unless i show miraculous weight loss tomorrow, I'm not too keen on doing it again. Missed my bacon-and-tomato standard DD breakfast!! *whine*

Soren felt this too. Some people choose to burn through it, some people bail. Carly just tried a PH and had to eat a pice of pizza to recover from her shaky. Its not for everyone.

That doesn't sound like too many calories still.. but it is nice to know you can just eat 'til hungry with the PH. Did you actually feel FULL or were you aiming to eat as little as possible, while still feeding hunger?

I am really doing JUDD right now and want to continue with UP and DD. So I kind of wanted to incorporate PH into that.

HOWEVER my DD today was great (huh? did I say that?). For the first time in a really long time, I didn't actually eat breakfast - just had coffee. And I was fine. And I had a protein shake for lunch, but didn't really NEED it. Don't know what would've happened if I didn't have it, but was nervous about that today. So actually I think I would've been fine with so few potatoes. Maybe I'll try it next down day. Will see. Wondering if my scale is actually wrong? LOL. I read that 16 ounces of potatoes is about 430 calories. And my three small-mediumish potatoes didn't look like 400 calories! Haha.

The first day I felt great... thinking this PH rocks! By 7pm on the next day I was dizzy, queasy and felt like I was going to faint. DW felt similiar, but not quite as bad, which was good so she drove home from work, because I couldn't operate a vehicle.

Well, I've now had my third potato meal of the day, and I actually feel pretty ok. Still not sure if this is really for me, but I don't feel as bad as before. It was just an experiment anyway, and I'm going for a regular UD tomorrow.

Carly -- I think you mentioned to me at one point that you have PCOS? I have to wonder if that might be a contributing factor in us not doing so well on the potato hack? I know it causes all sorts of insulin resistance and blood sugar-related issues, so it would make sense that eating pure carb with no fat might pose some problems.

Totally off-topic -- love your coat in your photo -- that shade of pale blue is adorbs.

I do have PCOS and am a recovered diabetic. I was on Byeatta injections 2x per day before my weight loss so who knows. Thanks for the complement on the blazer

I think Pirate Jenny feels funky with the potatoes too, and she's also diabetic. The resistant starches are good for insulin sensitivity but may be that the insulin spikes & swings are extra troubling for the already-insulin-sensitive set?
Part of the problem is that we still can't agree on a mechanism!
Carly, I think its funny your problems came Day 2. Most people have problems around mid-afternoon on day 1. You're an over-achiever!!!

Ha ha ha -- YES, Yennie -- that's when I ran into trouble -- mid-afternoon today. I felt like I could not stay awake! Seriously, the dentist gave me tylenol with codeine when I got my wisdom teeth taken out and I felt like I did after taking two! Just wanting a nap, SO bad. Oh, and I broke, guys -- two slices of the target pizza my kids were having for dinner is now in mah belly! Making for a not-very-down-down day of 750 cals.

This is the 3rd morning of my potato hack.

All in all I feel completely sated by potatoes, averaging about 800-1100 calories per day. Zero or little food obsession.

Beginning weight day 1: 252.6
day 2: 252.2
today day 3: 250.4

This is my final day of snarfing potatoes, so will report tomorrow a.m. on my total weight loss on the hack.

I did PH on Mon and Tues. Around 300 cals for Mon. and prob 600 on Tues. Today I'm doing a reg UD. I weighed in this morning at 152. My last weigh in was 4/18 at 148.6. I did have my birthday binge this past weekend and TOM started Mon. So hoping TOM accounts for a lot of that.

Good morning, everyone! Well, my potato hack was also not a smashing success! lol (all 3/4 of one day that I did it) -- I was down .7 lbs this morning, but then, I'd been up .4 the day before. So, a total net loss of .3 lb. Meh. I missed my regular DD. I'm a JUDDD-girl now, that's all there is to it -- so, back to plan, as written. Good luck to everyone else on the PH -- I know for some it gives great results!

I'm gonna give this a try on my DD...yesterday was one of them....I can't imagine it on an UP cuz' I couldn't eat 1500 calories of potatoes. I was full on 400 calories yesterday. I only weigh in once a week so not sure if it is working, but I know I felt good and the potatoes were delishous. I think I am following Adi here in that I had a single cup of coffee with HWC in the morning and then 6 hours later had a potato and then ate some more potatoes later in the afternoon. No more in the evening...wasn't hungry at all. I did take 2 petro tho, so probably that helped. I had one small baked and then I sliced and salted/peppered and poured some FF stock in and baked it according to Quizoid's directions...love that! I will try to chime in on Saturday. Hopefully this will be good for me on DD?

I lost a 7 pound gain with two "modified" potato DD's this week. I eat breakfast then wait 6 hours and finish the day with cold boiled potatoes and/or broth. On UD's I had no meat (other than bacon for breakfast) but baked potatoes with LF cottage cheese and salsa.
I have tried the all day potatoes only and for me still eating breakfast and THEN starting the potatoes only has worked well. Plain cold boiled potatoes with sea salt. The cold potatoes are so easy too.

So I'm a long time lurker but just wanted to chime in on the PCOS thing. I am not diabetic, but I am IR and I have been diagnosed with PCOS. However, I was unable to take medication for it so basically I just have to deal with it. I am on day 4 of the potato hack and it is working great for me! I was worried since starches seem to cause me to gain really quickly. But after 3 days, my weigh in this morning was -2.6 pounds!

Just a little insight for all you other PCOS gals. YMMV

Potato Hack, so so -- 30 day JUDDD anniversary good!

Well folks, my potato hack is behind me. I lost a grand total of 1.8 lbs -- teeny tiny drum roll please! Went from 252.6 to 250.8 (up .4 from yesterday's weight of 250.4).

My big wish was to get below 250 lbs. - sadly, I did not make that goal, but heck, I am still thrilled with my experience with JUDDD so far.

This week marks our (DH and mine) 30-day anniversary on JUDDD

In 30 days, DH went from 322 lbs to 301. A grand total of 21 pounds YAY! I'm doubly in love with the man!

In 30 days I went from 261 to 250. An 11 pound loss. That's a lot for me. (Prior to JUDDD I shed 10 lbs through l.c. dieting since January, making that a 21 pound loss since New Year's Day).

What we learned in 30 days: to love the health benefits of this WOE, to truly be mindful of food and the nutritional bounty it affords us, portion control, how to create delicious healthy meals on fast days by modifying recipes and by using a gram/ounce scale and measuring spoons and cups -- we even reduced our overall food bill!

I feel grateful. Even for potatoes. Smile.

yay for you and the hubs, Cyn! That's doubly cool that you two can do this together and not only lose weight and gain health, but also bond over it and share your experiences with each other. that's a real blessing. it can be extra hard without familial support.

Thanks for the welcome! Y'all are too sweet

Anyway, the most impressive thing to me is the fact that I no longer crave sweets..at all. At I used to have a HUGE sweet tooth!! Plus I work at Starbucks, which is like temptation city with all the pastries and yummy latte syrups.

Anybody else experiencing this right now? I love it

Well 2 days on potato DD and I gained weight boo hoo! Maybe I'm in for a swoosh or something great It has been several weeks since I have lost any weight, but it is what it is.. So close to calling goal just want it done! 4 more pounds, well five with the gain, but that is not a lot so I shall press on!

Post-hack weight loss

Its about 3 days post-hack and I've lost another pound. Perhaps its some residual effect. That makes a grand total of 3 lbs lost.

So now I am weigh 249 lbs, meeting my original hack goal of getting under 250. Breaking that awful stall makes me exceedingly happy!

I plan to do another hack sometimes in May. I found potatoes cooked in broth comforting and filling. I suffered no food obsession whatsoever and it was quite a relief.

In the same way that eating low carb dehydrates you to some extent, alongside the glycogen/water adjustments, eating relentlessly high carb can make you carry more water than you realise and you sometimes drop it after the hack finishes, even if you carry on eating (what is probably a smaller amount of) carbs.

The hack broke a 5 week stall for me and I'm so pleased that it broke a stall for you.

Dear SlowSure,

You are so very close to goal weight. It must be frustrating to experience a long stall when you are so near to your destination. That is very interesting information about water weight. I never thought of it that way.

Thank you for sharing. Smile.
