    Haha great thread man, I've been waiting to have some real "monitored" datas on this whole potato crash diet.
    A guy who looks great and has real notions of BF% and aestheticism will have many interesting things to come with concerning this hack.

    Haha, it will convince me on whether or not I should try it.

    Go on, man

I honestly missed that. It may have been buried somewhere in the middle of the thread.
    Huh? I'm really confused. Who said that? You have an amazing gift for reading things that are nowhere on the page.

    If I looked great already, I wouldnt have to do it. While the outcome may be interesting, I just dont see how it could compare to an overweight person's outcome. It would be like apples to oranges. Although.... it still might help with learning if there are other benefits in play and not just a quick hack for fat loss. Like maybe it might be another hack to fasting, sort of like sauerkraut is a fasting hack. The lack of protein might still force your body to clean house, while providing it satiety from an actual food unlike an absolute water fast that most likely leaves you hungry.

    The only thing that it could indicate is the degree of muscle preservation and fat loss.
    IMO, it's the key component of the potential interest about this hack/crash diet.

    Or if someone really overweight had the tools to measure his bf% efficiently, he should track it.
    Again I'm especially concerned about what this hack can do to someone who's already on the "lean side" (it depends on what you put behind the word "lean"). For example at the moment I'm about 14% (been much lower in the past but my different health problems led me to put on a bit of fat) and if I could use this hack to quickly go down to say 10 or 11% it would be pretty cool.

    Oh my... IIii am the one that suggested sweet potatoes are better for your gut. ;-) I say that because when I used to eat potatoes, my stomach would hurt. Not just "bloated", but hurt. I thought perhaps this happened with a lot of people, especially since they are forbidden on diets geared toward healing your gut. I ate some potatoes the other day and guess what? The same thing happened. But I did realize it doesn't matter whether it's a potato or a sweet potato... It still hurts. Perhaps the skin is problematic. THAT is all... Not like I was implying doing it with sweet potatoes would make it "healthy" by any means, just that it might not cause stomach discomfort, as I experienced in the past... Lets not read between the lines here. ;-) And 1+ for that vodka fast.....!

    Potato skins contain the anti-nutrients. You are definitely better off not eating them. As for sweet vs. not, the principal difference is that you get more simple sugars in the sweet potato, hence the name and flavor difference, and that sugar tends to be maltose, two glucose molecules stuck together.

    I think what pklopp is doing is pretty awesome. Like Neckhammer, I wish he was doing was just potatoes without added protein, but it's pklopp's choice.

    Good luck! I look forward to seeing the results.

    PS I just checked out your website and couldn't find any information under "The Method" or "The Madness." Glitch or have you not posted there yet?

    I'm thinking egg whites and albacore tuna, with some scallions for some interesting hash brown / potato burger effect. I'd rather stick to real food to the extent possible since the volume of food does play a role here. And yes, this does deviate from the orthodoxy, but it is my experiment after all.

    Actually, to refer to the poster on page 1, I can't wait to eat plain, boiled potatoes once my carb-up starts after 5 days of keto-depletion! But, then again, I am always an odd-ball. I start my carb-up with banana-egg white before and after workout, then white rice, then have a baked non-gluten breakfast then spend a day eating plain boiled potatoes with vinegar, dill & sauerkraut. Next day it's non-fat greek yogurt and fruit and honey day, YUM!
