I just made a similar thing but in muffin tins. I put a good scoop of grated potato into each 'hole' and then sprinkled salt and pepper on top. I covered the lot with foil first up until the potato was soft and then uncovered them for about 20 minutes. I ended up with a crispy, brown potato muffin. Very tasty and portable for those of us who have to pack food for work.

Holy crap - I am HOT!! I have hypothyroidism so I am super aware of my body temps, having cold hands, feet and nose for example are a sure sign that my T3 is low and I need more meds. I've had maybe a pound of potatoes so far today and I'm roasting! My hands and feet are hot and I'm sweating.
Hooray for the thermogenic powers of starch!

[QUOTE=primal_jessjane;984119]How are people's energy levels? QUOTE]
My energy levels are really bad. After 3rd day, I"ve been taking 2 + hour naps everyday, along with sleeping very well at nite. Not doing any work outs at all and only gone on 2- 1 hour walks .
Starting day 6 and haven't lost much weight either.

Morning of Day 5, 1.2 lb loss. Total loss after 4 days of eating potatoes is 3 lbs. Didn't walk or exercise due to the low cals. Yeah!!!

Ez2cy, how many potatoes do you eat a day? Yay, Beachspirit!
I baked up a sheet of sweet potato fries this morning, about 1.5 medium sized ones. Could definitely eat another 3! ;-)

I did really good yesterday and stuck to potatoes! Yay! Unfortunately, I'm up over half a pound this morning...I also feel very bloated. I'm thinking that I'm putting too much sea salt on the potatoes? It could just be by body catching up I'm still at 2.6 pounds in 4 days so that's not terrible, but I was hoping that I would be down again today.

Don't really pay attention. 6 medium sized ones? Gonna buy a food scale and start weighing, although decieded to go on these diets because of not "weighing or calorie " counting. So much for that.
did another 1 hour walk with dog this morning in the cold.
Doing 2x day cold showers. Icing the back of my shoulders for over 1/2 hour each day as well.
Thought I' d have lost more weight but.....

That's sad to hear. I don't have any advice for you. Better start eating real food and get to feeling better! Thanks for trying so hard, though.

I, and others, have noted a minimal amount of regain after a few days. Then a big bowel movement comes into play and you're back on track.
