    I lost a few pounds as expected during the first three days as it was over the weekend / veterans day and I wasn't working out. At the start of day 4 I was 4 pounds down, but that was also following a pattern where I would drop a few pounds on the scale on days I didn't work out as I got rid of water, etc. I did a Crossfit workout on Tuesday and, again as expected, was up 2.6 pounds on the start of today (day 5). I'll probably be a similar weight within a pound or so tomorrow.

    As far as satiety, I havent had problems sticking with only potatoes, other than the times I was out with my girlfriend and the kids at restaurants over the weekend. It's kind of boring, but not a big deal.

    In the end I am glad I tried it, and overall it made me realize that I do need more potatoes and rice in my diet especially as I do crossfit workouts 5x a week.

    Ok....I'm learning here. You lose more weight and don't retain water when you don't work out?

            Hey MDA peeps.

            Having considered this a lot and begun my own experiment and such, I wrote a couple of posts about the "potato diet" and this third one just got picked up by boingboing.
