    Yeah, I had the feeling anything with 'malt' in the name would be kinda banned. Well, I will just have to find out what organic cider vinegar tastes like on fried taters.

    Dropped a pound on day one so I'm in it for another day, except I'm on the road and not certain how friendly restaurants will be. So it may turn into a spud/salad dat. Good luck going totally-taters!

    Well. Got home this morning and saw a beef tenderloin I forgot I had purchased, and a stray package of open sausage. Freezer, such as it is, is completely full. So the potato diet starts tomorrow! I'm excited about it. For one thing, I will be happy to have some simpler, easier meals for awhile. And no decisions except mashed or baked or fried. Actually, I will bake up a few taters tonight so I will be ready.

    Back was acting up this AM so I called out of work. Don't like to do it, but just can't take any chances. I don't have a job where I can leave early, or take it easy, or put my phone on voicemail. And I'm not going down for the count like I did back in May. So here I am with a tenderloin and a tender back.

    Feeling kind of weird and discombobulated. Not happy. Kind of bearing-less. Went out and looked at the stars for awhile, then went to choir practice, where I did not sing well. Home now, going to watch PBS videos, Nature and Nova.

    I like the way you describe it, "bearing-less." I know the feeling and looking at the stars is great therapy for that. Sometimes our troubles and problems seem so large and insurmountable, but gaze for a moment at the stars and into the infinite and everything shrinks into proportion. The wine helps too!

    Am trying to stop thinking so much. That is my problem, too much thinking. I've had a couple of difficult weeks at work, no big deal. I overthink things.

    Baked some potatoes and couldn't help eating one with a little chicken broth. It was really, really, really good. I haven't had a white potato in ages. I'm really liking this idea. If it helps me get off this plateau, that is even better.

    I suppose its good that IF is easy when I am feeling low like this. Not the remotest urge to eat.
    Yup, a lot of people going through that kind of thing. Very, very intense for my husband right now. Everybody else is totally demoralized there too. Such a shame.

I have some organic tomato sauce that contains no sugar, I think I can doctor that up into ketchup with a little stevia and fish sauce or something. Should be fun!
    Okay, what have I missed? Since when is an all-potato diet supposed to do anything good? Sounds to me like a great way to send your blood sugar soaring.

    I was wondering about the potato diet too. Sounds like fun taste-wise, but wasn't sure about the rest. I'm sure it'll work, though. Your body will probably just push it through. In my case, I'd probably get a migraine or arthritis or one of those other nasty effects of potatoes!

    It's in the nutrition threads, called EAT MOAR TATERS! Huh?

    I thought it looked really interesting and I am up for a change right now. Funny how potatoes taste very sweet to me now. Pre-primal I would never have described the lowly tater as sweet.

    David is doing it, I learned about it on his thread. All kudos to him.

    Slept and slept and slept and...you get the idea. Did some reading. Nothing else to report. Getting ready for my first tater. Or shall I say three or four small ones.

    This work thing will chew me up and spit me out if I let it - have to deal with it constructively. I am really lucky I have some time off coming up which includes a retreat. Wouldn't mind facing this problem a few pounds lighter!
