    Personally, I am not doing a potato hack but taters are cheap, and to avoid spending a fortune on meat every day, I eat a big chunk of beef liver once a week, with occasional mackerel / sardines or some ruminant meat in-between (more rarely pork or poultry). Beef liver is really cheap. I also do beef hearts once in a while. The thing is organ meat is so cheap, it's absurd! Of course, you've got to like these things ...

    I forgot: I like eggs a lot!

      Yes, I like your version. I sort of like liver. I can eat it once a week. I had veal liver the other day. I have never had beef heart.

      I did just rediscover smoked oysters and sardines after peeking in on the Peat thread. I also grabbed a can of smoked clams. Had the can for lunch. Oh my. I love eggs and have access to pastured eggs. I also just stocked up on Trader Joes grassfed ground beef.

      • Reading this now, I'm thinking about doing the potato hack again. Maybe next week.

          I just did a huge cookup of a bunch of meaty stuff but as soon as I get through some of it, I'll freeze the rest and do the potato hack.

                • Just in case anybody runs across this I'm posting my results from my first hack that ended two weeks ago (I stopped for a week and am now on another) I ate hot mashed potatoes pretty much the entire time and LOTS of them, up to 5 pounds a day and lost 16 and something pounds in two weeks. I went back to eating locarb the week after and lost a whole HALF a pound the entire week and said screw it and started another hack. This second hack the results are a LOT slower! I'm thinking I'm not eating enough though, I've had a crazy schedule and not had the proper time to get in my taters. I'll post what I've got so far after the first one. Anyhoo, good luck to anybody who comes along!

                  Day 1 - 165.8
                  Day 2 - 163.6 2.2

                          • Ha! I ate McDougall for 9 years. I was still fat! I think it's the solo potatoes that does it. I really wish potatoes didn't flare arthritis in my hands.
