My favorite hack of the hack so far, is my extra thick bone broth (I grind my bones & veggies - I know someone will tell me if I should not do that for some reason) so anyways, tators smoothered in this thick and lovely bone broth. NOM NOM NOM
Yal the trouble with adding this and this and that and that, is then ppl say but I just didnt see the same results from eating tators. Well of course not, you weren't doing the same thing You are just seeing different results of doing something different other than just tators.
Not to say that is bad or good, just different. It's nice to know the different things you can do and what the effects might be.
I do enjoy a baked tator with tuna though, but I havent eaten it on an all tator day. But I use to eat that alot, before tators were on my Sh*t list.
I had a successful run on boiled potatoes, eggs and ground beef cooked with no added fats and salt, eaten to satiation in the 'whatever combination you want' manner.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
I rather like tuna in olive oil, as it seems the only way I can get fresh olive oil (every time I buy a bottle I think I get some ancient out of date thing, as it tastes like crap)
But yeah, I do find it a little confusing when so many people are essentially saying 'Oh, so it's all taters, all the time, nothing else except taters? Cool! I'll try that, with some fried in oil, a bit of cheese, maybe some protein powder and plenty of salmon, cos you need your omega 3s..."
Potatoes people, potatoes!
Having said all that, wifey, who has a body like a very-slightly plump teenager (5'3" 120 lb) insisted on a MacD tonight, so I ended up with a portion of French fries
In fairness though, it does seem the protein level is too high to get the low-protein benefits from the 5-2 diet (BBC Horizon thing) so adding some zero-fat protein probably wouldn't hurt - IF the zero-fat is a primary mechanism, rather than just low calories.
Ah, whatever, why over-think it? Potatoes.
Understanding something does not constitute over thinking it
If you don't like just tator, just dont do it. Not much to over think. If you want tators with something else, that is okay too, you just might not have the same results as just tators.
Might not be what he means, but that is my take on it all.
Now... that said.... it would be nice to also know these hacks of a hack do still work and to what degree and why... or why not. Just broadens the range of how to use them and that is a good thing. Just dont say you tried the tator thing and it didn't work for you, cuz that is not really what you tried. You tried a variation.
