Two questions for those who have been on this potato feast:
Have you had gas? After three days, I thought the dog was under my chair...and he's been gone for months!
Those who have lost a good deal of weight, did you start with your weight in the obese range, or did you work off those last ten pounds?

I need to lose between 15 and 25 pounds, depending how you choose your 'ideal' weight.

I stuck out the 2 days that I counted on, then went out and bought more taters to resume the experiment , interrupted by a cheese omelette for breakfast. I'm debating whether to eat taters for dinner (supper) and keep going just to see what happens. But I am reacting badly to weather changes and haven't slept properly for 2 nights. Sure hope it's only fibromyalgia, and not blood sugar crashes. I am down a couple pounds, which is neither here or there, but I'm enjoying being at almost my lowest weight (other than 5 minutes 4 years ago) in 35 years. And I'm still plenty obese, but if this breaks my loooooong stall, I'll be happy. If it kills me, I won't finish this experiment. Heheh

I figured out a way to not alarm the family about all potato eating by saying that I want to try eating potato dinners for a couple of weeks to see if it improves sleep. I am integrating starches a bit more now, but I test drove an all potato breakfast this morning, with 4 small potatoes, pureed with water dill and salt and I was hungry within an hour. I did have a cup of non fat quark with it, but still. I am not feeling confident that I will keep full without going very high on calories.
I dunno. I just don't know what to do at this moment, so I am staying with where I am right now, which is not the happiest place.

I had some gas the first day or so. I read in the thread that peeling the potatoes helps. It did for me. I went 7 full days and lost 8+ lbs. I'll do it again if I ever need to break a plateau or just quickly take off some pounds.

Pureed as in like a smoothie or something? I dont know how well I would do with that either. And i know it shouldnt be any different than eating it.

Sorry, I should have used the word 'mushed'. ESL issues.
