  • I am going to eat 3 kg (about 6 lbs) of potatoes tomorrow, and will be thinking of all of you! I too can't imagine being full on a lb of potatoes a day!

    • I eat about 1200-1500 calories of regular primal food a day..... So isn't the whole point to eat in a calorie deficit? Very easy to achieve eating meat and fat and a bit of sweet potato. ;-)

        They were raw, very thinly sliced liked potatoe chips done on the grater. I thought my pans were non-stick but they still stick a little. I made sure it was hot before I put the tatars in. Trying to follow Otzi's suggestions. I was thinking of trying to make cripsy potatoes chips out of them in the oven by broiling. I don't know if it would work or not.

          Using Fitday, I calculated 985 cals for me yesterday for 5 medium potatoes. This is what Otzi posted in the beginning of this thread. "This works in exactly the same way ketogenic diets work. Your body can only use two things for fuel: Fat and Carbs. In ketogenic diets, you are completely carb-starved, so you burn body fat. In the potato diet, you are completely fat-starved, so you burn body fat. Your body doesn't burn protein for energy per se, it uses the amino acids contained in the protein as building blocks for life-processes and rebuilding muscle etc... Potatoes and rice have all the amino acids you need for life.

          the reason this works better than normal calorie restriction with a diet of protein-fat-carbs is that your body will process the simple starch first, then look for other fuel and find only body fat. The simple starch is processed very fast in the gut and not the liver like sugar, protein and some fats. If you have blood sugar issues, this will actually help you. If anyone has a blood glucose meter, do some testing while eating potatoes, my FBG dropped from 100 to 90 and stayed there. After several months of paleo, it crept back up to 103 it is now 90.

          Another reason this works, is that the micro flora in your gut responds very well to simple starch. It responds very well to the easily digested potato and it's signaling is vastly improved. I start getting gassy about day 3 and it goes away by about day 6. If you peel the potatoes this won't happen as badly, this happens because there are undigestable enzymes in the peelings that are dealt with in the large intestine in a gas-producing way."

          • So what is the concensus on supplementing protein (such as BCAAs or whey) during your tater-time? It shouldn't interfere with fat oxidation and might spare more lean mass especially if people don't want to stop their resistance training, no?

            • And just to make things easier as far as the white varieties of potatoes go, they're jusssssst about
              perfect, gram to calorie ratio.

              So if you had 300g of COOKED russet, cals are 290 - so it's close.

              Always better to overestimate than under.

              This is with the skin on, too.

              Red potatoes have slightly less, coming in at .89 of a calorie per gram, skin included, COOKED.

              Yams are 1.16 cals per gram, and sweet potatoes are .9 cals per gram.

              Both cooked, both with skin on.

              As far as the delineation goes, at MY store, the potato with orange innards are "garnet yams" and the
              ones with yellow innards are sweet potatoes.

              So that's what *I* am talking about when I say yams and sweet potatoes, but other people have
              other thoughts on the matter, so, well, go on with your bad selves.

              All I can say is that I've been doing this since Monday the 8th, and not as a fat blasting kinda thing the way
              Otzi describes it, but as a satiating mechanism during the day so I don't eat like a freaking horse.

              So I've been eating potatoes when I get hungry during the day, and then usually some sorta meat
              for dinner and veggies.

              The potato part is very entertaining because while they're tasty good, there is no way in HELL that I would
              dig into "another one" because they taste so good. I just can't do it. Would probably vomit - but I can eat
              a pound of bacon in one sitting and still want more an hour later because it calls to me. Potatoes do NOT, but
              I *do* love them.

              So I've been having about 500cals of potatoes a day, then a normal dinner equaling about 1200 cals
              all together.

              Let me tell you how just eating paleo, how HUNGRY I would be on 1200 cals. Could NEVER DO IT.

              But these potatoes just flick a switch and I can go HOURS. So weird.

              And, the best part is that I am wearing jeans that used to CUT ME IN HALF two weeks ago, and today
              I'm wearing them... Have been ALL DAY. And even after eating 450g of yam (which is bloating as all
              get out) I am STILL wearing them and they are STILL not cutting me in half. Which, I totally can't believe
              because usually after the first bite of anything, I'm like "yeah, um, where are my softy jammie pants?"

              The whole thing is pretty unbelievable to me since I just did the "more fat" protocol for a month and
              a.) didn't lose shit, and b.) felt like shit.

              This was surprising to me considering zero/very low carb used to be my "go to" cocaine. I could always count
              on ZC/VLC to get me back to where I was or lower since 1996. In 2009 something "broke" and it just wouldn't work
              for me. Even in a deficit..... though I kept trying because I just couldn't believe that it wasn't working anymore.

              Eating all these carbs is like a fat nazi eating piles of fat. I became accustomed to NEVER eating carbs so
              doing this is just.plain.wrong.

              But it's working, it tastes good, and I SO LOVE not.being.hungry

              So I'm glad Otzi's post came out when it did, because I almost relegated myself to just
              "settle" with where I am and what I've got.

              Now 6lbs down from a weight that I couldn't budge for 4 months, I know I don't HAVE to
              settle.

              And yeah, it could backfire, I could blow up like a blimp and become 400lbs over night, but
              hell, even just the energy I have from these damn potatoes would be worth it! Ha!

              Also, if you use cronometer, you can SEE what vitamins and minerals you're getting, and I can
              truthfully tell you that I've been meeting about 92% of the RDA for BOTH (if you believe in
              the RDA, and if not, it's still fun to see levels) vitamins and minerals, on 1200 to 1500 cals
              a day. That is freaking uncanny.

              You know what else is weird..... October is my birthday month and I always get my standard 2lb
              box of chocolates from my husband. I ate these puppies with wild abandon in SIX DAYS, after
              each dinner, and I STILL lost weight.

              W.T.F.

              They're gone now, thank God....

              Welp, my jeans and I are off to go for a walk. I just can't sit a minute longer.

              • Hey, that's pretty interesting. Perhaps I can try your potatoes-only during the day and regular dinner at night and do that for a week. Because I'll probably never get a chance to do a full on potato-only thing, plus I'm not sure I like the idea of not having real food every day for so long a time. That just seems to me to be too unhealthy.

                  I'm really glad you posted this. It kind of ties into something I was toying with this week.

                  My fasting blood glucose (FBG) has always been a little on the high side, like 100-110. Usually 120 is considered pre-diabetic, but ideal is like 70's.

                  The other day I bought a glucose tester and some test strips. I tested my FBG and it was 110 at 6am. I tested it every hour with these results until 11am: 110, 100, 100, 95, 90. So it went down all morning, then I ate 1 big baked potato and tested every 30 minutes for 3 hours and got: 116, 158, 140, 120, 80, 60, 80, 80. I tested every hour til supper and it stayed right at 80.

                  Today, I tested all morning and it was right at 100 up til lunch. I ate about 1/2 pound of fish and oysters and checked blood sugar every 30 minutes: 100, 90, 90, 95, 97, 95, 97.

                  So the massive starch load spiked my blood sugar immensely and the protein/fat only lunch didn't spike it at all. One of the tenets of low-carb living is that it doesn't spike your blood sugar, which is good for fat-loss. However, spiking it wildly twice a day for 2 weeks resulted in huge weight loss.

                  Maybe we need the insulin surge to kick us into fat-loss mode after being low-carb so long.

                  Just my observation, but maybe a pure starch hit every day is a good thing.

                    That is what PHD dude is saying also. Eat about 1lb of starch like tators.

                    Perfect Health Diet: Weight Loss Version | Perfect Health Diet

                    Starches are better for weight loss than sugars, so they’re the best source of carbs.

                    In our new book we argue in more detail why eating a modest amount of starches (20-30% of calories) is usually optimal for weight loss. Lowering carbs from the SAD level of 50% to 30% helps weight loss, but lowering them further has little effect or harms weight loss in most people. There are a few people who have gut infections or some other problem that makes even 30% carbs problematic, but for most, providing our body with the glucose it needs reduces stress and appetite and makes it easier to lose weight.
                    I tried the moar fat also, and it was not working well for me. So my first 2 or 3 days of eating tators, was adding tators back in and less fat, before I went full on tators. I lost about 3lbs in just those few days.
                    65lbs gone and counting!!

                      • Hey, I was reading Mike Eades's blog today (he actually had some stuff I hadn't read yet.)
                        Dr. Donaldson was having trouble getting his overweight patients in his practice in New York to drop the pounds. He had heard of Stefansson’s experiment in which he and another explored went a year under supervision at Bellevue Hospital on a meat-only diet and emerged from the experience lighter and in better health. Donaldson invited Stefansson to dinner and picked his brain. As a result, Donaldson began treating his own obese patients on basically an all-meat diet. (His actual diet was a half pound of meat, one small boiled potato, and a half cup of black coffee or tea at each meal – and nothing else throughout the day.) He had such success that he began treating just about every health problem presenting to his clinic with his almost all-meat diet. Unlike with Dismantling a Myth, you can find copies of Donaldson’s Strong Medicine pretty easily. It makes an interesting read. But beware. It will show you how much times have changed since 1961. By today’s standards, it is sexist and racist to the max.
                        Perhaps another potatoey option to try for those who are concerned by the lack of real protein? I admit I'm a little concerned by it myself. I feel like I've already done all the years of low or no-protein dieting anybody should ever do.

                        • This thread is blowing my mind... I just started PB like 3 weeks ago hoping to just take off 10 lbs, or even stay where I'm at and lean out. You think it's too early for me to try something like this?
                          Breathe. Move forward.

                            As far as the delineation goes, at MY store, the potato with orange innards are "garnet yams" and the
                            ones with yellow innards are sweet potatoes.

                            So that's what *I* am talking about when I say yams and sweet potatoes, but other people have
                            other thoughts on the matter, so, well, go on with your bad selves.

                            All I can say is that I've been doing this since Monday the 8th, and not as a fat blasting kinda thing the way
                            Otzi describes it, but as a satiating mechanism during the day so I don't eat like a freaking horse.

                            So I've been eating potatoes when I get hungry during the day, and then usually some sorta meat
                            for dinner and veggies.

                            The potato part is very entertaining because while they're tasty good, there is no way in HELL that I would
                            dig into "another one" because they taste so good. I just can't do it. Would probably vomit - but I can eat
                            a pound of bacon in one sitting and still want more an hour later because it calls to me. Potatoes do NOT, but
                            I *do* love them.

                            So I've been having about 500cals of potatoes a day, then a normal dinner equaling about 1200 cals
                            all together.

                            Let me tell you how just eating paleo, how HUNGRY I would be on 1200 cals. Could NEVER DO IT.

                            But these potatoes just flick a switch and I can go HOURS. So weird.

                            And, the best part is that I am wearing jeans that used to CUT ME IN HALF two weeks ago, and today
                            I'm wearing them... Have been ALL DAY. And even after eating 450g of yam (which is bloating as all
                            get out) I am STILL wearing them and they are STILL not cutting me in half. Which, I totally can't believe
                            because usually after the first bite of anything, I'm like "yeah, um, where are my softy jammie pants?"

                            The whole thing is pretty unbelievable to me since I just did the "more fat" protocol for a month and
                            a.) didn't lose shit, and b.) felt like shit.

                            This was surprising to me considering zero/very low carb used to be my "go to" cocaine. I could always count
                            on ZC/VLC to get me back to where I was or lower since 1996. In 2009 something "broke" and it just wouldn't work
                            for me. Even in a deficit..... though I kept trying because I just couldn't believe that it wasn't working anymore.

                            Eating all these carbs is like a fat nazi eating piles of fat. I became accustomed to NEVER eating carbs so
                            doing this is just.plain.wrong.

                            But it's working, it tastes good, and I SO LOVE not.being.hungry

                            So I'm glad Otzi's post came out when it did, because I almost relegated myself to just
                            "settle" with where I am and what I've got.

                            Now 6lbs down from a weight that I couldn't budge for 4 months, I know I don't HAVE to
                            settle.

                            And yeah, it could backfire, I could blow up like a blimp and become 400lbs over night, but
                            hell, even just the energy I have from these damn potatoes would be worth it! Ha!

                            Also, if you use cronometer, you can SEE what vitamins and minerals you're getting, and I can
                            truthfully tell you that I've been meeting about 92% of the RDA for BOTH (if you believe in
                            the RDA, and if not, it's still fun to see levels) vitamins and minerals, on 1200 to 1500 cals
                            a day. That is freaking uncanny.

                            You know what else is weird..... October is my birthday month and I always get my standard 2lb
                            box of chocolates from my husband. I ate these puppies with wild abandon in SIX DAYS, after
                            each dinner, and I STILL lost weight.

                            W.T.F.

                            They're gone now, thank God....

                            Welp, my jeans and I are off to go for a walk. I just can't sit a minute longer.

Because I'll probably never get a chance to do a full on potato-only thing, plus I'm not sure I like the idea of not having real food every day for so long a time. That just seems to me to be too unhealthy.
                              Yeah, definitely try it.

                              I had my yam 3+ hrs ago and I *still* feel like I just ate it.

                              Even went fishing with the boy for 2hrs in the sun (just got back) and my jeans
                              STILL aren't killing me. I swear, two weeks ago I wouldn't even look at them. I just
                              bought them at the thrift store and washed them in hot water, so they shoulda been
                              even MORE annoying, but still not!

                              My fasting blood glucose (FBG) has always been a little on the high side, like 100-110. Usually 120 is considered pre-diabetic, but ideal is like 70's.

                              The other day I bought a glucose tester and some test strips. I tested my FBG and it was 110 at 6am. I tested it every hour with these results until 11am: 110, 100, 100, 95, 90. So it went down all morning, then I ate 1 big baked potato and tested every 30 minutes for 3 hours and got: 116, 158, 140, 120, 80, 60, 80, 80. I tested every hour til supper and it stayed right at 80.

                              Today, I tested all morning and it was right at 100 up til lunch. I ate about 1/2 pound of fish and oysters and checked blood sugar every 30 minutes: 100, 90, 90, 95, 97, 95, 97.

                              So the massive starch load spiked my blood sugar immensely and the protein/fat only lunch didn't spike it at all. One of the tenets of low-carb living is that it doesn't spike your blood sugar, which is good for fat-loss. However, spiking it wildly twice a day for 2 weeks resulted in huge weight loss.

                              Maybe we need the insulin surge to kick us into fat-loss mode after being low-carb so long.

                              Just my observation, but maybe a pure starch hit every day is a good thing.
                              I wish I had strips for my glucose meter! They're so dang expensive. Can't get any right now, maybe
                              when my husband gets his new job I can sneak some...

                              But yeah, your findings are very interesting.

                              VLC used to be really good to me. Started weight training and vlc-ing in 2007 (oh, and I quit
                              alcohol too, habit was getting to be one bottle of wine a night, not good) and I went from
                              145lbs to 113 faiiiiirly quickly.

                              Husband lost his job, in what, 2009, for 9 months, and during that time we wallowed in our
                              self pity and I drank and ate my way back up to 140ish.

                              VLC to the rescue again, but it stopped working around 119lbs and then no matter what I did
                              or HOW low of calories I did, I just kept gaining, slowly.

                              Then a few more bouts of the "f*ckitalls" in the next couple of years brought me back to 130,
                              and more tries at low carb for months, still not working and then the recent addition of feeling
                              like shit and no energy, whereas before, I was hyper as hell and could NOT STOP GOING.

                              Stuck at 130 forever, all my small clothes laughing at me from the bottom of the drawers, I stopped
                              weight training at the beginning of summer because I completely lost my mojo.

                              Enter potatoes as a last ditch effort (without being a total pig about it) and now I'm down to 124?

                              Kicked up exercise to about 5miles a day, walking, but not all at once. Kids to school back and forth 4 times
                              (well, me back and forth, as I have to dump 'em off and leave 'em) and then maybe a dedicated 1hr walk
                              around 10AM.

                              Totally ALMOST went to the gym today because my weight lifting mojo is back, but forgot that the kids had
                              the day off today. HA! FAIL! But I'm SO GOING ON MONDAY and going to tear the place to shreds. So there.

                              I tried the moar fat also, and it was not working well for me. So my first 2 or 3 days of eating tators, was adding tators back in and less fat, before I went full on tators. I lost about 3lbs in just those few days.
                              Ooh, thanks for the link.

                              And yeah, I think my old ass body is just DONE with VLC. It sees it coming and it just shuts down now.

                              Fine with me, as long as SOMETHING is working, I don't care what the hell it is.

                              When I'm weight training and doing some limited cardio, like training 3 days a week and walking anywhere from 2-5 miles
                              a day the other days, my maintenance cals are right around 1800.

                              Just walking like I am now, I'm sure it's way lower.

                              So lately I've been eating anywhere from 1100 cals one day, to 1600 the next, or maybe there will
                              be two days of 1100 cals and then a 1600 day. I guess I'm probably averaging around 1300 - 1400.

                              But those 6 days of the See's Candies? Holy frankenf*ck, probably 2000 cals a day.

                              That's why I'm so surprised I didn't GAIN anything.

                              Sure, I bloated up like a stuck pig, but no weight gain.

                              Whatevs!


                              What else I've noticed with the potato thing, is that if they're hotter than hell, you can't
                              hoark them as fast, and if you eat them whilst you drink something fizzy, you're going to
                              get satiated all the faster.

                              Today I cut my HUGE yam into wedges, or canoes were more like it, and then baked them
                              at 410 for, what seemed like forever.

                              I was so starving by the time they came out I could barely wait. So I'd gnaw on one, blow
                              on it, and then continue eating it.

                              By the time I got halfway through I was like "meh, these taste great, but I can't stomach
                              another bite" so I had to give it a rest for an hour, then I finished them.

                              All with a diet root beer... delicious.

                              My husband just came in and asked what I wanted for dinner.... egads.. maybe air soup
                              and wind pie? Seriously still freaking full. Blargh!

                              • I just don't get this...... I tried eating 3 potatoes this morning (~500 calories), plus a very ripe banana (so mostly glucose), and was hungry 3hrs later. I was thinking, screw this, if I am hungry every 3hrs then how is this going to work? I'd love to fit into my jeans again but I can't see how this works if you are eating too much of anything. I just don't geeet it!
