So, I see a tator thread with the stipulation that its for people who have taken the challenge....and a tator thread that introduced and it seems both are a bit "chilly" to those who would postulate on the mechanisms through which the diet works. So post em here. Vent your questions, concerns, and metabolic theory here without fear of being labeled some sort of diet zealot/tator hater! Why do some not see any loss of weight even when eating at a very obvious deficit? How can you lose 1lb a day (3500 calories)? Does that mean there is a thermogenic effect to all that starch? Is it water weight?......Hey there is lots to explore. Have at it without fear!
