I have most every appliance known to man... except a waffle maker. But DD got one for Christmas from her SO, but I am guessing she will leave it there. I bet my sister can find me one at a garage sale. And since she really does own every appliance known to man, I bet she has one she is not using :)
[QUOTE=otzi;1017690]And you almost sold your waffle maker at your garage sale last summer for 50 cents....[/QUOTE]
Lies! All lies!
My family is not primal, just me, so I make them whatever their little hearts' desire...... even waffles...... OH NOES!!!
I easily eat 2.5-3 pounds per day, plus steamed/raw veggies. Absolutely stuffed. But I did heavy deadlifts and squats today so I probably need to eat more.
Also, can too much potassium dehydrate like too much sodium? I've consumed ~10,000mg of potassium today, and I'm awfully parched.
Dang, I gave my son my waffle iron last time he was in town.
I'm on day 2. I get outrageously hungry after Yukon Gold taters but do fine on sweet potatoes. I was at Trader Joes eyeing the rice today but realized if I had a serving of rice on day 2, it would lead to other things. So I have a tray of sweet potatoes in the oven and roasted yukon's ready for the next couple days.
I don't know if I'll still be doing this on Monday when some of you start, depends how I'm feeling and what the scale is doing.
Having been a tater eating McDougalite for 9 years, I could happily munch taters all day!
[QUOTE=fateater;1017590]I'm starting tomorrow, well, tonight I'll have potatoes for dinner and start full out tomorrow. I don't need to wait til Monday :) and can't afford to anyway. Since I'm out of meat it's the perfect time to begin. I just bought $20 worth of assorted potatoes, red/yellow/purple and a few sweets. Cool there are other people who'll be doing it around the same time.[/QUOTE]
Me, too! Eating the last of my leftovers and then going to buy potatoes. I have to start tonorrow to give me a whole week before my work Christmas party. After that I have a couple of other things planned through the holidays that would get in the way so tomorrow it us. You and me fateater! I'm kind of scared!
Someone remind me... 1-2 lbs per day on average? And black coffee okay? Can't believe I'll have to give up my cream! Okay, I know it's only 7 days!
I haven't been to the forum in weeks, but tonight, I found this thread. Just read all 20 pages. What a cool hack! I'm in for Monday. I haven't been eating more than 50% Primally for a while now, so I'm coming at it from a non-fat-burning perspective. I'm going to go out and buy myself a variety of potato types - might as well play with this a little.
Right now I have baby red potato gems that roast up into tiny little mouth-bombs - meltingly good! Need me another few bags of those for sure!
I'm totally in for next week's potato challenge! Aaaaaages ago I initially voiced my apprehension at women's success with the hack, but it appears to now be a non issue.
Going to buy a ton of organic potatoes and sweet potatoes tomorrow. I will start on Sunday and stop on the following Sunday (7 whole days) Looking forward to saving cash on food this week so that I can spend it on christmas pressies for everyone else :)
Will post more details in the "challenge" thread when it pops up! taters gonna tate....
I have just commence round two of the PPD... First time round was 10 days of mainly potatoes, some white rice, spring onions, chives red peppers, chillies and a splash of hot chilli sauce. I dropped 6kgs over the 10 days.
After the first round my eating wasn't very good, bread, beers, cake, chocolate all creeped back in. So last week I slapped myself hard a couple of times and cleaned up the food. Surprisingly I only put on 0.5kgs.
Anyway back on board the PP and Rice Diet for round 2 and two days in I am down 2kgs, lowest in 12 plus years. I have about 3.5kgs to go to get to my goal I set myself three years ago when I started on primal. Due to this hack I sure I can get there. This time around I have added in few more green veggies (zucchini, onions, caulflower, broccoli), some fruit as in half a handful of berries, these don't seem to be having an affect at this stage. Veggies are once a day and about 1 cup mixed. Eating as many spuds and rice as required to full me up
You guys are making me really happy I started this thread! I almost didn't do it, but I had such great success I felt I should since Otzi was getting trashed on his original thread and it was becoming quite long!
I talked to Otz a while back and he said something I hope he doesn't mind me sharing...he said this 'hack' makes losing weight so easy it spoiled the fun of dieting for him.
I know I have found a way to keep my weight in check and have to watch out for getting lax. I know I can just do a week of potatoes and lose 5 pounds without any stress. I'll be watching you guys next week, hope I can find your secret thread!
Well I did it I decided to go a week and the last day is today, I had a little problem in the beginning, but I am down 8lbs in 7 days. I might go 1 more week and join you guys.
