This thread has really intrigued me...so much so that it inspired me to make my very first post!
I assume that the "fried" potatoes are cooked using no oils, and that my BP Coffee will be out for the duration (not a big deal either way, but just want to make certain)? Are there any spices or seasonings that should be avoided?
I am strongly considering giving this a try to see if it will help me bust through the 5+ lbs that I keep losing and gaining almost weekly. Since I've been ultra low carb today, any idea on how I may respond if I start this tomorrow?
btw, regarding coffee etc, is double cream out or is it inconsequential. I tend to drink 5-6 cups of decaf per day. I might even find some spicy potato recipes and post any good ones here.
Are you using oil to fry the hashbrowns in or is your pan really that good and they dont stick?
Also...does anyone else hear Gollum's voice saying "what's taters...precious?" every time you read the title to this thread?
It's just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You'd give anything to silence
Those voices ringing in your head
You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will-
Learn to be still
I'll let you guys know how this goes.
Broke my 28 hour fast with 1 lb of potatoes. And I'm pretty darn satisfied! Lets see what the scale looks like tomorrow. It was 151.8 this morning
When I read stuff like this I have to ask, are you not concerned with constant insulin spikes and the effect on your body as you age? Not bashing the weight loss, just askin.
I had my first dinner of mashed potatoes with some warm beef broth to make it really tasty. I ate 13 ounces of mashed potatoes and felt very full and satisfied. 16 ounces = 1 pound.
I'm going to make the hash brown taters in the morning and try sprinkling vinegar, as suggested by Otzi......never had vinegar on potatoes before, but sounds interesting.
Have a good night, everyone. I'm off to construct my project potato spreadsheet. /Lou
