Drumroll, it looks like it's you and me against the potato hack.
From the sound of it, maybe we need to go strict primal to ramp up the fat burner hormones, and then it's okay to add in a little starch? However a whole pound is ridiculous at least for someone my size.
I'll stick with PB for the moment, thanks.
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 111 on sugar cheat. Currently fighting off sugar/candy cravings with bulletproof cocoa and a little rice.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
