    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.

            Comments are what you might expect. So, if so inclined and this has worked for you, do feel free to pop on over and add your [reduced] weight to the thread.
