  • I would absolutely LOVE a PPD Challenge to hold me accountable to potatoes
    and nothing BUT potatoes, say, for 5 days or so...

    Perhaps in the ODDS AND ENDS SECTION OF THIS WEBSITE SO NO ONE
    IMMEDIATELY GETS THEIR WANKERS IN A KNOT OVER IT BEING IN THE
    "NUTRTION" section, because clearly, potatoes are "void of all nutrition".

    Mkay.

      Call it something like "Whole 20" and see how long it takes you to eat 20lbs of spuds!

        • Yes, knotted wankers are good as birth control, but nothing else.

          Oh Mr. Tater, we had better not call it that, it would be even MOAR (ha ha haha h ahha! I'm dying!)
          confusing to anyone "new", even in THAT section.

          Perhaps - "Nothing But Spuds for 120 Hrs".... or whatever duration we were looking for.

          Yes, Gopintos, I think bone broth would probably be fine, especially if it is the low calorie
          variety and not used too often.

          I've used fat free chicken broth (made my own) and it was beyOND delicious.

            Yal that is what mine is. Homemade, but I grind everything up. I hate throwing anything away, and no one has really said yet that is was a bad idea to grind up the bones, and so I do.

            Okay, if you wanna start a little thread, I dont care what you call it - doesnt even remotely have to sound like tators :P I will find it

            • But it's WEDNESDAY and the WEEKEND IS LOOMING!

              You wanna wait until Monday to start it?

              I think I might derail on the weekend because there is
              always SOME succulent thing that floats into my mouth.....

              And, we could use this in-between time to rally more suckers, I mean
              guinea pigs, I mean, um, contestants.. yes, that's it., Contestants.

              • LOL ok ok I probably need to see what needs to be used up between now and then anyways. Okay, Monday sounds good

                • Okay, cool - and, it will give me a chance to tear out all the pages for the Looney Bin
                  out of the phone book so my husband won't be able to have me committed.

                  I can start grooming him now, with kool-aid and sugar cookies (don't worry, he's not
                  primal) so when Monday comes around he'll just say "okay honey, do what you want".

                  Doesn't matter for him anyway, as I'm one of Those Mothers that makes three separate
                  meals because no one eats the same thing anyway.

                  Sue me. It works for us.

                  Okay! So Monday it is! That will give me time to gird my loins or grow a pair.

                  Whatever comes first.

                  • Yal my hubster wont even know any different. But if he did, and if he was concerned, I would let him know that this is what I feel I need to do for a few days in order to help make me more of a lean mean effin machine, and then he will be shoveling tators down my throat haha

                      Hmm. I'm considering it. I need to do a deload week anyway, and that seems like a good time to start a week of potatoes also...

                      • SWEET! Another taker.

                        Monday, December 3rd, it's on like ping pong.

                        I, we, whomever, can post in here when the Sekrit Thread is up
                        in Odds and Ends....

                        Gopintos, yeah, my husband wouldn't notice either 'cept for the fact
                        that he's inbetween jobs at the moment and is always lobbying for
                        something delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner.

                        Good thing I have my OWN MIND because between him being home and
                        his mother coming out on the 18th through the 28th, I'd be 400lbs.

                        So good to do this before then.

                        If we all want, we can post stats like weight, calories, how many pounds of potatoes
                        per day or meal, or however OCD we want to get with it.

                        Or, if one is a Private Person, then just maybe "pounds lost" on Saturday the 8th's
                        weigh in.

                        My kids are in school for 6hrs a day, so I'll be incredibly annoyingly detailed.

                        No sparkly graphs though, cuz I's ain'ts smarts enuffs to figure such thingz out.

                        • I'm starting tomorrow, well, tonight I'll have potatoes for dinner and start full out tomorrow. I don't need to wait til Monday and can't afford to anyway. Since I'm out of meat it's the perfect time to begin. I just bought $20 worth of assorted potatoes, red/yellow/purple and a few sweets. Cool there are other people who'll be doing it around the same time.

                          • I believe that adding in steamed green veggies and members of the onion family wouldn't compromise the PPD - as most veggies have a higher protein ratio by macronutrient than potatoes for those who are concerned about protein intake, plus they also increase intake of valuable micronutrients such as iron and antioxidants for those that need them, without increasing fat intake.

                            • I started yesterday. I got a five-pound bag of russet potatoes, and I've just been baking them. I need to get more . . .

                              So far, I've had: potatoes with my homemade habanero sauce; potatoes with salt and balsamic vinegar (when I discovered that I was out of apple cider vinegar); potatoes with homemade turkey stock; and potatoes with oregano, thyme, and sumac. Next up will be potatoes with sauerkraut. (I'm assuming that sauerkraut is allowable? It's essentially non-caloric: five calories per 1/4 cup. And I'd assume that pickles are in the same category?)

                              Are sweet potatoes cool?

                              I'm down four pounds in two days since I started.

                              • Do any of you guys own a dusty old waffle-maker? They make AWESOME hashbrowns. I could definitely overeat them, but they make a really good after dinner snack if you are still hungry and they stand on their own, just a little salt and they are delish! Go out and buy a $5 shredder if you don't have one. Peel and shred some potatoes and throw a handful on the waffle maker or sandwich press. You'll want to eat these even when not on a PPD.
