    Otzi--I totally feel ketotic eating taters. I get that metal mouth taste and I the same lack of appetite. So weird!!! All I can think is that the big glucose spike is dealt with more efficiently by insulin mobilizing free fatty acids, resulting in a ketotic state!

    It may indeed be the resistant starch that is so beneficial. All I know is I never ever felt this well eating LC. Especially the no cravings thang. AND--If I happen to go off the rails, like at Christmas--a tater day or so just takes care of the problem without the pain that I experienced on LC (7 lb gain, LC Flu, etc).

    Day 4 for me and I am down another .8 pounds. I am thrilled! My family is making fun of me with potato jokes, but I am within a day or two of fitting back into my skinny jeans, so ha! Energy has been fine and I was able to do a killer weight workout last night.

    I just bought The Perfect Health Diet on kindle yesterday and so far it is an amazing read. I will definitely follow those dietary guidelines once I stop this tater diet. When I was doing strict paleo I think white potatoes were one of the foods I missed most. Glad to see they can be part of a healthy food plan.

    When you read about how cows and gorilla turn grass and leaves into fat, you will understand why you are in ketosis eating just potatoes! You are actually eating a Cannibalistic/High Fat diet!

    Potato Fast? Otzi, have you lost your mind? Lol. Glad you put in your #9 in the "rules." Potatoes make me crave crave crave.

    Oh I didn't mean start the THREAD without me (anyone can do that, heck if I care!), I meant start the CHALLENGE!

    Looks like everything is going swimmingly and you're doing great.

    Keep up the good work!

    That's strange they potatoes would give someone the urge to binge, but I remember you had big problems in that area, so good that you know yourself! You have gotten me in trouble twice now with my wife...last summer see saw me talking to a hot blond in a cheerleader outfit, and just now she saw your new pic and says 'another one of your hot girlfriends?'. Ha!

    Thank you for the replies. So happy to hear I won't be the only binger trying the PHD, just hope it works as well for me and I can keep my binging in check once back to non potato eating.

    Ouis, the thread you posted on JUDDD brought me here so will be giving it a go, thank you. Fingers firmly crossed because sadly I have a lot more to lose now!

    Oh hells to the no! - I just can't do anything about it because everyone is STILL
    HOME ALL DAY LONG.

    I have my $4.00 25lb bag of potatoes waiting for me, in the dark, when I finally get
    one single second to MYSELF without stupid jackass questions and judgement abounding.

    So freaking annoying.

    Just mind your own damn business and eat whatever the hell you want. You're going to ANYWAY,
    RIGHT?

    What does what *I* eat have to do with you, anyway?

    But I'm not bitter, nope, not me.
