    That's a good idea! Not hot, noisy or very dirty.

      Your original post suggested that I ate too many twinkies , thus skipping t2 diabetes (where most allegedly go) and proceeding directly to T1 do not pass Go, do not collect $200.


      I'm pretty sure eating high carb for 2 weeks won't cause diabetes.

      You underestimate carb addiction.

      • Hello Tatar Feasters,
        I started my Tatar feast today with 5 medium potatoes. Loved it. I've eaten low carb for years. I've spent the last 2 weeks on BP RFLP and really missing food. I tried the iFing, but once I would get down below 120-122, my weight would always jump back up, even if I ate the exact things I ate to lose. So I thought the fat fast would be extreme enough to break the set point, but regained on the refeeding and then loses were a lot slower and life was sucking. Then I found this thread and got so excited. I love potatoes and have denied myself potatoes for years except Thanksgiving & Christmas.

        I'm 5'4", female, starting weight 121.4. Goal weight 113. I don't lift due to a herniated disk. I walk for exercise. But I won't walk to much on low calories. I can't wait to see what the scale shows in the morning! Good loses to all of you!

        • After seven days I lost 3.2kgs and now having a couple of normal eating days because my folks are in town visiting.
          I'll give this another go - it just works.
          Believe and achieve.

              • How could an all-potato diet be satiating?! How many pounds of potatoes are you people eating a day? 2-3? Haha this sounds so ridiculous. 3 small potatoes already weigh about a pound, which is like a side dish. ;-)

                • I started Tuesday, Oct. 16. It's Friday morning, I've lost 5.6 lbs. I feel fine but that much weight loss seems like too much for 3 days. However, I'll take it !!!

                  Is it necessary for the Potato Feast/Fast to be started from the base of very low carb primal eating (that's me) or could there be good results for someone that began after eating the Standard American Diet? I also have a Vegan friend whose lost a huge amount of weight and sounds interested I'm not sure what to tell her if she asks.

                    Great job! I know for a fact this works extremely well for people eating the SAD. Not sure about vegans, but I can't see why it wouldn't. The only people I wouldn't recommend it to would be people with diabetes, but they would know better anyway.

                      Thanks, I plan to reserve the information until I'm asked. Son-in-law and daughter seem to be calming down, maybe they see that it's 3 days down and Mom's still alive and even getting to work every day. I want to point out that this "temporary exercise" has cut way down on my personal grocery bill.

                        I ate 4 or 5 potatoes on Wednesday. That seemed like enough.

                        • Are these giant potatoes? Like baked potatoes?! For instance, with me, there's no way I could be at a calorie deficit while eating to satiety from potatoes. That means 8-9 small potatoes a day. I'd love to fit back into my jeans ASAP but I don't see how this could work...

                          • I ate 3 potatoes, dry fried for lunch and I'm stuffed. They weighed 13.125 oz raw and 10.5 oz cooked.

                              Three of them were pretty big. The other one was medium-sized. I forget what the weight was. If you just go by the calorie totals on about.com for "large" and "medium" potatoes it was somewhere in the vicinity of 1100 calories. Considering I normally eat much more than that, this is pretty good.

                              Thursday I ate 3 medium-sized potatoes before dinner. I had a regular dinner. I was pretty hungry on those 3 potatoes. I'm not sure how well this whole thing would keep me satisfied if I did it day after day. It doesn't really work at all for just a day and a half. But I had those potatoes leftover from my first time doing it for a day and a half so I figured I would do it again for kicks.

                                Were they pre-cooked, sliced, shredded/grated etc.? I have good non-stick pans, Calphalon. I used frozen hashbrowns, the little cubes, seemed to stick. I think I might have had the flame too high.
