    12 lbs in a month is huge! I've pretty much plateaued myself but I haven't seen 12 lbs in a month since maybe 3 months into my paleo journey. Congrats on the massive loss!

    Thanks! The fasting I did was to break through a plateau in the 250s and it worked! We'll see how long I get before the next plateau. This week's fast was different than the last three, so maybe I need to try something different.

    How long did you fast for? I started a fast today (likely will just be for the day) in hopes that I can break through my plateau.

    I've done four (one a week, usually Wed - Fri) they were all 48 hours, except the first one, which was 60 hours. I drank water and coffee with cream and took cod liver oil (for no particular reason other than I've been taking it since starting PB).

    I think the first fast was when I started being a fat burner instead of a sugar burner. Good luck with your fast, keep up with the fluids!

    Sounds like a good month overall! There are so many variables to losing weight, that it never seems to work quite the same way twice. And now people are starting to notice, which must be nice.

    Wow! You are doing fantastic! And breaking new ground with the fasting too. Also, you are providing some really interesting stuff for us to read.

    Thanks!

    This weeks weigh-in was not so fantastic. No weight loss at all! Which I do not really understand, since it included two full days of fasting and every day was 2000 calories or less, and consistantly in ketosis.

    Since this week and next are busy travel weeks, I'm not fasting. I'll up my carbs to 100 - 150gr. and concentrate on nutritious good food and rest on my oars a bit. I'll try to stay in the 230's. Then I'll start again with the fasting as I kind of enjoy it.

    Today I'm going to try an all potato day, inspired by the "Eat Moar 'Taters" thread in the Primal Nutrition Forum. Both as an N=1 experiment, and because I got some beautiful, fresh potatos from our CSA. If I lose weight tomorrow, I'll try another day. If not I'll just go back to my normal eating.

    So breakfast was 'taters with a splash of beef broth over them. Lunch was taters with a splash of beef broth over them and dinner, let's just see... Oh, taters with beef broth splashed over them! Maybe I'll cut loose and trickle some ACV over them too!

    There's a certain comfort in knowing what I'm having and having it all measured out for me. I'm more aggressively hungry this afternoon, oddly even more than when I am totally fasting. It winds up being a real low cal day as two pounds of spuds is not quite 1000 calories. But 175 carbs!

    I was intending that if my weight went down tomorrow (which it could do for a lot of reasons having nothing to do with potatoes) I would do it for another day, but turns out I have to make an emergency call to a customer in PA so will be traveling with the local Rep. So an all spud day won't work. But if it does cause a weight loss I may try it when I hit a wall fasting.

    Well I ate my yummy dinner of potatoes with some bone broth. It was good. It really does feel sort of like fasting. I should probably have eaten more potatoes. But the recommended three pounds and all those carbs just seems like too much. I'm not sure how they arrived at the three pounds anyway.

    I guess the plan was to avoid hunger, rest your digestion and still have a significant caloric deficit. The potato diet idea was intriguing to me because it is self contained and simple to follow. I don't think there is anything magic about potatoes, just that it's a relatively benign starch that is bulky and easily digested.

    Well they said that most people lose weight the first day, so we'll see in the morning. One thing that might skew my results is that I've had almost no salt, the beef broth has salt in it, but probably I consumed a half cup all day. So I might lose some of the water I'm retaining. I guess we'll see!
