Rob, that sounds tempting but wouldn't have been enough to stop me smoking
Can't report on weight or anything, far too early and still on my first day. I CAN however say that I've been surprised at how little potatoes have done to curb my appetite...
Had wedges for breakfast, then a single large spud later, now at around 5.40pm local time, starving!
So this time decided to deliberately create a dish that's a bit bigger than I might normally want - 4 medium size spuds, boiled for 35 mins (I forgot the time!) with sea salt, "potato seasoning" and what seemed like a generous dollop of balsamic vinegar. Having said that, the vinegar was instantly absorbed in a small area.
Now, finally, I'm struggling to finish this bowl (yep, typing and eating spuds at the same time).
Wedges and stuff I had no problem with and was wondering if I'd end up over-eating taters - but boiled taters are hard work to eat!
I went from "Damn, these tatties don't really fill me up.." to "Damn, I'm stuffed already?" with just a few mouthfuls of BOILED potatoes.
Maybe it's just accumulating during the day but it does seem there's something about boiled spuds that just murders your appetite?
Extra water weight?
