    Hmmm....now I'm interested. OK, who here has a six pack that we can put on the cover?

    1. Take your temperature for several days each morning on waking to establish your baseline.

    2. Monitor your temperature each day you are potato-feasting.

    3. If your temperature drops significantly (like, say, dropping below 97.5 degF/36 degC when your baseline is 98.6 degF/37 degC) and stays depressed for a couple of days, it's time to stop and re-nourish.

    "Starvation mode" is not some nebulous spiritual state. It's something that can be easily measured and, being observed, prevented.

    But the fact that so many people are reporting losing fat mass even when eating to appetite, with no conscious portion control, suggests to me that it just won't be a problem. There's this funny thing about starving--it makes you freaking hungry.

    LOL, that was funny And thanks for the other info. I read to monitor temps, but I didnt make the connect as to why. Handy information to have

    Somewhere in this mess is a link to a man on a fast for over a year. He lost a lot of weight and only gained back a nominal amount compared to how much he lost.

    Is that why I feel like I could eat forever??

    As I read through, I seeing a trend of people who are also eating rice not doing too well on this. Looking at calorie info on rice, it does seem to pack more calories in a smaller serving, so maybe just sticking to potatoes is warranted.
    Can you explain the problem with rice besides the more dense calories. If adding rice seems to satiate, then when you get full you stop just like the potatoes. Is there any other reason to not add rice in? Does the starch/carb difference hinder any?

    Though this may be an interesting thread, why is it on MDA? Pure carbs and white potatoes? Nothing primal here. Primal is more about health, not the latest weight loss gimmick. Or am I wrong?

    The much maligned potato is hardly a pure carb as we've learned here. It is a primal-approved Are Potatoes Paleo? | Mark's Daily Apple food, full of protein, fat, and carbs. What's wrong with exploiting it's seasonal use as a fat-busting tool. Mark's latest book, "21 Day Total Transformation" also promises quick fat loss...nobody picks on him!

    Yal I read that part, but it also assumed Grok would have over ate it because it was available. But it summarized by suggesting it might also stoke the fat burning machine again.

    I knew it wasnt saying the exact same thing as our beloved tater thread, but I still enjoyed it
