    You shouldn't read too much into usernames. I did that because the one I wanted was taken.

    Are you my ex husband? Not that he knew me either, but my point is, don't claim to speak for me. You don't know me.

    Having been a vegetarian, a meat eater, a fish eater through different times in my life, I'm afraid your assumptions are ever so slightly wrong, but thanks for playing. I've followed all sorts of odd and cuckoo diets in my life to see what happens. Now the banana diet... that was something.

    By the way, anyone who wants to read a ton of great give and take with Cronise re: this diet, go here (free registration required) :

    Thermogenex - Fuel the Burn

    And consider donating (and here comes tatertot again saying I'm Cronise), because he is spending a ton on equipment...and because, as the guy who's actually figuring out the innovations that are helping fat people get thin fast (for apparently the first time in their lives), he deserves it.
    Do you troll for a living or is it something you do in your spare time? Do you remember the teacher in Charlie Brown cartoons who made that noise like they were talking but all Charlie heard was 'blah blah blah blah'....
    Well I'm reminded of that by you.
    You're not Ray. He's far, far nicer.

Why don't you just stop already Im Losing it..........cuz your make me "lose it." It's not like the tater diet is patented or something. When you do research on something that grows NATURALLY on the planet we live on then you're gonna run into people who have done the same kind of research on the same plant. Whether on themselves or others. It's not like its some magic concoction that Ray came up with...........IT"S A POTATO.
    well said

I changed the first post in this thread to direct future readers to Ray's site. The day I made this thread, I emailed Ray and invited him to look it over. No malice on my part. After about a week, I hadn't heard back and was surprised how much attention this thread was getting. I emailed him again, provided him links to this thread. He got back to me quickly and said he didn't have time to come onto MDA and defend his work so would I kindly send people to his site. I honored that request.

    If you read through the thread, you will see several people telling me to stop talking science and just stick to the basics...eat potatoes, lose weight. It works, most people don't really care about the science. I didn't post any links, graphs, or studies that Ray had on his site because I respected his research and work. About the only thing you could say I 'stole' from him and posited as my own was the fact that potatoes contain all the essential amino acids and a healthy supply of fat. Anything else was sheer speculation on my part as to why this works. In the comments on Rays blog, he shoots down about all the arguments I used to tell people why this works. So far as I know he hasn't told anyone why he thinks this works so well.

    But anyway, you are doing the exact opposite of what Ray would want you to do, draw so much attention to his work in the lead up to his big release of information. Maybe you should get Ray's email address off his site, email him, and tell him how you are 'dressing down' Otzi and all the people who have lost weight eating potatoes. I'll bet he tells you to stop.
    sounds fair enough to me.

    Would've been 3lb, if you didn't go frying the things in oil

    *gives LC a teasy elbow in ribs*

    And well done!

I went back to potatoes Monday and Tuesday, though had regular primal dinner last night. I haven't gained any weight back. I'm doing potatoes for the next 5-6 days, bringing it to a total of about 12 days, to see if I can drop another 5lbs. I'm pretty pleased with how this has worked.
    It seems resilient to shaking things up. Good to see it stayed off. Now I am thinking about cheesecake

    huh, seems to be working for you! Glad my I-can't-stand-this trick pushed you through. How many days will you go?

    My sprints are better on potatoes I must say.

    Thanks! I think another 3 days. I have lost so much weight, I just am keen to see if I can keep it off, consistent with Zanna and others. And I can emotionally deal with boring food now. The results are certainly worth it!
