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...

Another 1.25 lbs for me as well. I'm just astonished. My jeans thank you.
