    Sorry man... if you put a potato in my pot I'll toss it right at your head.

    Found it. It was called Eat Moar Eggs. Original title don't you think?

    from the OP there : 21 whole eggs and 21 extra egg whites per day. I am allowed to eat less eggs but not more. This I will eat for four days per week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday I will eat half of this, = 11 whole eggs and 11 egg whites AND 3 pound of potatoes.

    This is basically what PK did with the high protein plus spuds.

    I just don't see why all those lovely egg yolks should go to waste. That's the best part.

    If I had to eat that much... I would want to DIE.

    are any of you people happier doing one of these 'hacks' where you eat only potatoes, or only potatoes, tuna & egg whites? it's way more fun to eat food, you know, like different types of food... or to be able to go out and eat with other people. try it.
    Dude, what?! That's crazy talk! Why on earth would anyone doing primal actually want to eat a variety of real foods or spend social time with their tribe?

    I could eat a dozen eggs a day and be stuffed while only having 840 calories plus cooking fat so say 1000 calories. That would be 500 below maintenance for me.

    It might actually work. Hmmm.......
    I think that would be very interesting. I used whole eggs ( about 8 per day ) for the last part of my experiment instead of adding any other fat or oil, and like you I also find them extremely filling. Given my body mass, I needed to add protein, though, and the only way to remain within my caloric constraints was with a low fat protein source like the canned tuna. Depending upon your particular caloric and protein goals, I think you could easily do an all egg diet.

    So I think that it certainly implies that, even if it doesn't explicitly state it.
    Perhaps an indefinite article would have absolved me of any guilt by association : "A Potato diet - .... "?
    .
    Notice I didn't make it "Eat MOAR TATERS, Gain MOAR WEIGHT" which might justify the implication.

    So until someone from the church of the magic potato trademarks the English words "Potato" and "Diet" when they occur together as in "Potato Diet (TM)" I think we can safely use them to refer to a selection of food ( a diet ) comprised principally of starchy plant tubers ( potatoes ). I intend to do that until I receive the cease and desist letter from the IP lawyers.

    I would caution with all egg diet, because it is relatively easy to sensitize to eggs when eaten in large quantities. I presume if eaten exclusively, it will be even worse.

    Also, I again, voice the agreement with the BMR over-estimates; particular the modifiers for activity. One of the questions I have for you, what's your BMR if you estimate it by Mifflin with a completely sedentary lifestyle? That's the only BMR estimate that is anywhere close to the truth for me (and the one that is very hard to sustain in the long run). I believe that adding a modifier for activity only works if you do not then add in the exercise separately.

    On page 4 pklopp said:
    See, the whole point of the experiment was to prove that a calorie restricted diet is a calorie restricted diet, and therefore, an all chocolate diet ( with adequate protein ) would be fungible with an all potato diet.
    I don't mean to pick on you. Trust me I have more productive things to do with my day, but this simply drives me nuts. It cant be "all chocolate diet" when you immediately add "( with adequate protein)". Not possible to supplement adequate daily amount of protein from chocolate alone. Even more so when you limit calories to 1 500.

    Hmm, I am ~ 100 lbs lean body mass, if I had to replicate the experiment, I would have to take 150 g of protein. 5 cans of tuna, 600 calories. My BMR is ~ 1250, 0.75% of BMR is 940 cals, so I will have 600 cals from protein and 340 calories from anything else. In case of chocolate, it will be ~ 9 squares of generic brand 72% chocolate they sell in the Superstore. Or about a kilo of cauliflower/cabbage. So, the diet is 60% lean protein actually.
