I always ate the peels, too. Sometimes I'd peel them before shredding for hashbrowns because it made it easier to shred them. Sometimes Russett potatoes you buy at the store have pretty gnarly thick peels, I'd probably peel those, too. I like to eat the thinner skinned potatoes like Yukon Gold or the red varieties.
Just a shout out for hashbrowns made in a non-stick waffle maker! You gotta try it if you haven't.
Good luck potato-people!

Remember, anything you eat that isn't made out of potato is going to count against that 1.4lbs! Try a day of 'tators only', just one, see what you think...potatoes, coffee, salt, vinegar...one day. CHALLENGE!

ok ok. I did pretty good today though, for real :cool: the half & half was just a TBL. Yes I measured it. But, ok ok. Tomorrow I will for SURE do tators only. No rice, no broth, no half & half.

You will find it very liberating!
I want to try an all meat diet someday. With ample calories. See what happens.

So day one is done....sigh. It's not that I didnt do well, I just thought it to be a bit more challenging than I thought it would be. I had 2 baked potatoes for lunch, some fingerling potatoes with vinegar a few hours later and just had some mashed Yukon and sweet potatoes with bone marrow broth to smooth it out. Exciting? No. I would love some ideas on how to make potatoes a bit more exciting. How is everyone else eating them? For those of you who succeeded today...congrats and I'm proud of you.

I did the steak and eggs one day. I LOVE that one!
Ok, I finished my dinner tator. I am officially stuffed now. I guess it all just had to catch up :) I think calories came in just over 1100.
I didn't eat any potatoes yet today because I had to restock. Thanksgiving used up way more than I realized! Just got back from the store with a truckload of assorted potatoes (and fruit, veggies, rice cakes).
I'm not having a good day today but it's due to womanly stuff. :)
Thoughts from someone eating more than just potatoes: I thought I loved carbs a whole bunch until I started to eat them with very little other macros. In the (distant) past when I did low-fat, it was much easier with dairy and lean meats, but eating things high in carb is actually tough and definitely unrewarding. Sure, you might think fruit and rice sounds great, and it is, but after a serving of each, it's no longer palatable to me. It feels kind of gross. Last night's dinner was boiled purple potatoes and peas with vidalia onion and vinegar; I felt repulsed by another bite towards the end, even though these are foods I really like, but it seems without the other components eating became a chore.
I'm going to bake a bunch of potatoes to have on standby. Hunger has been intense the past two days, but that could be largely due to womanly stuff and overall low calories.
I started my day with two leftover hard-boiled eggs (I have my own chickens and REFUSE to throw out my precious eggs, even for a potato hack), then leftover roasted little red gems for lunch. About 3 p.m., feeling a bit peckish, I cut into my raw potato with a paring knife, into slices, and crunched through them for a snack. It was a rather small potato, just right. Supper was sliced potatoes, pan-fried with an onion, shared with hubby. He had an organic pork chop in locally made hot maple BBQ sauce and tomato salad, I just had potatoes with onion. Actually that turned out to be quite tasty, though I was eyeing up the pork chop...
Now it's after 9 p.m. and I'm not hungry. I just got back from grocery shopping and bought an enormous amount of potatoes - three varieties, including sweet potatoes. I'm interested in trying a potato soup with beef or chicken broth. And I'm interested in trying a sweet potato with cinnamon as a "porridge" alternative for breakfast, or maybe as a "dessert". And grated potato "pancakes" for the crispy factor.
Guess you can't call potato chips part of the diet, eh??
