[QUOTE=qqemokitty;973669]Late to this party but I am so intrigued by this potato thing!!
Is it something magical about the potatoes? I don't think Lousia (or myself) would be at a caloric deficit by eating that many potatoes as I don't think either of us go too much higher than 1300 calories.
So... some potatoey magic is going on? :P I want to try it but my boyfriend is quite convinced I will fall over over. (He shares the same conviction re: me not eating lunch aka IF)[/QUOTE
Qqemokitty: I'm on my first full day of the Potato Project and here's my observations thus far:
- I ate normal Paleo yesterday, but had full potatoes for dinner. I went to bed hungry after eating <1lb potatoes. I woke up not terribly hungry, and made potato latkis (potato pancakes). Then I walked for 10 miles and was a little hungry, so had anther bowl of mashed potatoes. I'll have another few potatoes for dinner (baked)...and likely go to bed a little hungry. I am feeling the cold more today (I have a sweater on and the fireplace on), however, the temp is down to 1 degree C today, so the climate is getting colder. I do miss my fat, but I'm disciplined to go the full 7 days of this P. Project and see what happens. Looks as though my daily caloric intake is going to be between 600-900 because I'm feeling very FULL on potatoes and I don't care for them all that much. My husband watches this scenario unfold with interest and humour. Here's my before/after pics: Pictures by Lou655 - Photobucket
