    As a woman, I'm talking about 2-3 small/medium potatoes. Five would also make my stomach burst, but half a small one is just teasing.

    Yes starch doesn't seem to be a problem for me either, although I don't do well with lots of fruit for whatever reason; I have my theories but that's all they are. I suspect if I ever became a fruitarian I would end up like this guy A 100% Raw Vegan Success Story | Free The Animal Berries are awesome, though.

    Paul Jaminet recommended to have like 3 bananas everyday with 2 tomatoes and 2 potatoes for my fatigue (potassium deficiency maybe he said). So yesterday I ate 3 bananas. Today I woke up nice, more energy and all.

    I'm also probably one of the guys who can handle a lot of fruit and carbs. Bear in mind that when I say 5 sweet potatoes I'm talking about 5 medium sweet potatoes, not those huges ones. My combined meal (lunch) was probably 1500 calories, with the meat, veggies, whey and strawberries, so... yeah.

    LOL and I ate half a sweet potato on Saturday and am still not back to steady blood sugar. We certainly are all different in how well we handle carbs!

    Good grief, even salsa makes me crave-y. Three bananas and all that tomato would send me on a beeline to the Krispy Kreme.

    There still is that pesky little tidbit though regarding starchy carbs triggering my appetite - just just cravings b/c I can crave something even without being hungry. Starches actually make me *hungry* though I do eat them, timed carefully to be followed with planned dosing of adderall. Yeah. I know.
    Okay, so I've never had carb flu. Dropping to VLC has never made me feel like I was sick, although it does usually involve a day or so of orthostatic hypotension, esp. in the morning, but nothing more. I don't know whether I'm ketoadapted or not. I just know that I *think* VLC makes me a bit more likely to bound off the wagon when I have a tiny indulgence, and that higher carb amounts make me more likely to have that indulgence in the first place, although seemingly less likely to go nuts if I do, unless it's continued. Lose-lose, lol. I have no idea what to do.

    Yeah and low carb makes me fatigued and depressed (SAD this year was a killer), but higher carb messes with my blood sugar. Also lose-lose. I keep hoping there's a balance to be found that will work, but I don't know if that's true or not.

    Moderate carb is working for me. I feel better and more energetic, but not cravy. I have not started eating any more since I upped my carbs than I did before. Mind you, I don't think I have any candida issues. If I did, that might be different.

    How about you let yourself go one day every 2 weeks or so? I had a huge binge last saturday at a party eating lots of meat AND lots of cake, pie and chocolate (basically a wheat, grain and sugar fest).

    But I'm here, and I'm alive, and I've dropped the water weight I've gained from that. Not only that, I felt more energetic because of it afterwards. Just make sure you have a digestime enzyme ready when you embark on a binge like that, especially if you're not used to eating gluten for a good period of time.

    Not noticing any radical differences between VLC and adding in some rice starch, and some sweet potato. Not cravey, no reigintion of my fat loss.

    Haven't followed the PHD supplement recommendations yet. Very busy. Maybe I'll give VLC another whack in a few weeks or so, or maybe not. Very busy.

    It's great and I'm envious that you can do that, JPA. I keep convincing myself I can have "just a little" (or more) "just this once" and every time, every dadblame time, it turns into 3 weeks of floundering and drowning until I can pull myself together, diet-wise, again.
