hey gwamma, one more thing while you are confessing. the potato diet. now i have always read in the alternative gardening literature around the place that modern potatoes have fast releasing sugars vs the old ones which have slow releasing sugars. personally i reckon they did something to potatoes around about when they did the red king which was something like 1916. so unless i cant avoid it, i dont eat any potato post dating that. i know people who have nasty reactions to potatoes but who can eat maori potatoes fine. and i am talking nasty 2+2=4 sorta reactions which just arent there with the maori potatoes. since a potato isnt just a potato and there is far more too it, my plan had been, if i still felt like it, to try potatoing when i harvest my potato crop. i am not sure i could cope with that amount of time with just black coffee and to be honest, i would almost prefer to do a BP coffee fast instead. but one branch of the ancestors survived and thrived even on soley potatoes. till they had a potato blight at any rate but we were smart enough to have gotten out by then. which is another piece in the puzzle of weight loss. i have also read that if your genes have gone thru a major famine, you are far more likely to have weight problems as the obesity gene is more likely to be switched on.
