    Today, eating no carbs, minimal fat and the remainder lean protein, i have eaten twice the calories that I ate during my potato fast. Still much lower calories than normal, but nearly double some of my tater totals. Tonight I am hungry. I wasn't hungry on a half dozen potatoes a day. It's weird and I don't understand it, but the potato only regimen did keep me satisfied on very few calories.

    Responding to the request for butter flavored salt: Three that I know of: Reese's Butter Flavored Popcorn Salt (hard to find), Molly McButter (currently using up what I had on the shelf) and some butter flavored popcorn seasoning I get from Nuts.com that I ran out of recently.

    I'm not a connoisseur of fake butter powder, mind you I normally eat the real thing.

    Quick follow-on update - I said I'd be happy if I broke the 84 kg barrier and this morning, after going back to primal eating - 83.7 kg,

    So that's another drop of 1.3 lbs, for a total of 2.9 lbs lost over 4 days, 3 of them tater-fasting.

    Again for me the secret ingredient was fasted-state slow-paced exercise (walking), this time on an elliptical for 50 mins.

    I lost that 1.3 lbs despite eating:

    Yogurt and blueberries
    3 egg omelette
    Chicken stir fry with peppers, broccoli, mushrooms and onion
    1/4 lb almonds
    Small pack macadamia nuts

    Compared to ruminating on boiled spuds that felt like indulgent feasting - but still the weight came off.

    This morning I'm going to do another 30 mins on the elliptical before any breakfast, as fasted exercise seems super-effective for me at present

    Regarding measurements, the 1/2 inch on my waist that went away, then seemed to come back has gone away again, which is cool. Hard to get a consistent skinfold measurement but it certainly doesn't seem higher. I'm satisfied that the lost weight is fat.

    So yeah, seems consistent with other's experience, even when stopping the taters a bit more weight comes off.

    Post potato diet Day One: down another half pound to 146 for a total loss since starting last Wednesday of 4.75 pounds, which is approximately my typical monthly loss.

    Down another pound today! The potatoes diet has broke through a weight set point that I 've been trying to do for over a year on high fat or high protein, low-no carb lifestyle. I'm thrilled!

    Day 3, down 1lb, but was up .5lbs yesterday so only a .5lb loss so far. I felt really light and not bloated yesterday and slept really well last night. Curious to see if there is a bigger drop in weight after day 3...
