    Hey well done LC. I lost about 4lb in my 4 days but had to stop because I was ill from a bug. Are you doing intermittent spuds or all the time?

    Thanks.

    All the time. Twice I have been on the brink of quitting so I had a greasy rosti with spices. The fat was enough variety to allow me to keep going, so minor deviations rather than ditching it. Works well!

    Still reading through this thread, but just want tommention that I hope you guys are eating organic potatoes!! Root vegetables are among the worst to buy non-organic. Farmer's admit they'd never eat their own non-organic grown potatoes!

    "Root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides that wind up in soil. In the case of potatoes--the nation's most popular vegetable--they're treated with fungicides during the growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting. After they're dug up, the potatoes are treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting."

    "Try this experiment: Buy a conventional potato in a store, and try to get it to sprout. It won't,"

    Yet each time I prepare some spuds I have to remove a few sprouty bits?

    Go to pages 11 and 17 and note the comments by Mr. ZzzzeroG. That's what I hoped would happen here.

    When I started this thread, I figured people would say it was all BS and not give it a second thought. That's one of the reasons I didn't start right off with "....Ray Cronise says eat potatoes and lose weight." I figured if people took a liking to it, then we could give credit where credit's due. Done and done.
    My Goodness...

    as they'd say down south, "Y'all give Otzi a break."

    There is actually MUCH more to this than the "potato diet." That just happens to be a fun food that seems to fly in the face of the "bad carb" crowd. Anyone that's read much of my stuff knows I don't believe in "protein, carb and fat - speak."

    It's great to see the success repeated. I just wanted everyone to know that "otzi" didn't intend on stealing anything and in fact sent a link soon after posting here.

    oh, and I'm not a vegan, paleo, or any other such label. Just a scientist with a mid-life crisis calorimeter and an incredible drive to hack and understand.

    I hope to have a little more time to hang out in the future, but just wanted everyone to ease up a little. If you are concerned about me "not getting credit" for something, you can always fill out some data sheets - I love crunching through data and the best part of these "N of 1" experiments is that everyone is at least eating the same thing...

    Thanks!

    Ray

    I looked through the thread for intermittent spud eaters and didn't see any. Did I miss them? I am wondering what you can get away with.

    I wasn't really interested at first because weight loss has been mostly steady on a moderate macro diet, but as I get closer to my goal, the effects of my monthly cycle seem to be intensifying. I am ravenous and craving sweets and grains for several days after ovulation and was wondering if a heavy starch diet for those few days might be easier. I love potatoes, but have been kind of avoiding them because they are a lot of calories for the nutrients. However, if all potatoes, or mostly potatoes would make those days easier, it might be worth a try. Would I have to give up my 2 cups of coffee with milk in the morning in order not to balloon up eating plain potato the rest of the day?

    I totally joined this forum after reading for months, and just to try this hack. I have stalled spectacularly and all kinds of good eating are not budging my weight. So, I'm a 32 yo female, starting weight 145, we'll see where I end up and how long I last. Goal is to keep to this potatocopia for one week, weighing self every morning.

    To start with I made two potato stews - one potatoes, garlic, cumin, turmeric, chiles. One adobo style - potatoes, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, cumin. All ingredients appear to be sanctioned, and I love stews since it's winter here. I'll weigh and take two containers to work and see how it goes.

    Why easy on the soy sauce? Other than water retention? I used a tamari soy sauce, and it's my understanding that it's fermented, so decent for gut flora, and still fat free.
