  • Clarification re: Primal Potato Diet

    I'd like to try this Primal Potato Diet- I have a few questions, and if someone with some knowledge about the plan has just a minute, I'd be most grateful.

    1) How much potato do I eat each day?
    2) Do I eat anything else?
    3) How long do I follow the PPD for results?
    4) Can I REALLY expect to keep off the weight loss?

    I'd like to drop 10lbs total....

    Thanks a million!

    Why don't you look up one of the many primal potato threads on here?

      Because they are long, full of unresolved debates and confusing at best. Even after reading them, I don't know how I would approach the effort. Cooked vs. raw, volume versus satiety, white versus other varieties - it's all up in the air. No idea how I would go about it, either. Is there a simple plan?

        It's largely experimental and your mileage may vary, the general idea is though eat 2-3lbs of potatoes a day with nothing else. Spices are ok (pepper, cayenne etc) but absolutely nothing else. Some people go "well I'm gonna have fat so meh" or "well I want some protein so meh" so until a LOT of people stick to potato only and have decent logs there really wont' be any good idea on how effective it is.

          With that said, here's a simple plan.

          1. Boil potataoes. Eat all of them you want.
          2. Stop after a week or two.

            basically, you eat white potatoes. baked, dry fried, boiled, whatever tickles your fancy

            you can use spices, but no extra fat or sugar

            this is what i gathered when i lurked in a potato thread
            beautiful
            yeah you are

            Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

              How primal are you? If you want to drop 10lbs go 100%
              Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
              PS

                Here are the general guidelines:

                1. Plan on eating mostly potatoes for 5-7 days (90%+ of calories)
                2. Eat between 2 and 4lbs of potatoes daily.
                3. Other foods allowed (but optional!): 1/2 cup sauerkraut, 1 cup bone broth, 1 tsp max daily coconut oil, olive oil, or butter,
                1-2oz lean meat daily. Unlimited coffee, tea, and water.
                4. Spices, salt, pepper, and vinegar OK.
                5. Lifting of Heavy Things discouraged, think ‘de-load week’ Lifting light things/walking OK.
                6. All normal supplements OK to continue
                7. IF’ing, especially by skipping breakfast encouraged.
                8. If you need to lose more weight, alternate the “Potato Reset” diet with healthy Primal Blueprint in 5-7 day increments.
                9. Not recommended for people who eat every 2-3 hours, have glucose issues, or have eating disorders.
                10. Highly recommended for people who have their hunger under control, have been eating PB style for 6 months or more, and are having trouble losing weight with the normal approaches.


                These answer 1-3, as to 4, you can keep the weight off, but like anything, it's no magic bullet. The weight won't come back in 2-3 days like it can with fasting, glycogen depleting or dehydrating diets. I think you will find the weight you lose following these guidelines is 80% fat. The other 20% water and lean body mass--but I have no way of saying that with scientific authority, just my guess from what I have seen.

                  the fuck is a potato diet?

                  I'm a long time member here and if you said such thing a year or two ago, you'd risk getting crucified here.
