    Liking the results so far.
    AuroraB - I snooped on your profile, how cool that you are in medical/surgical field. Healthcare workers are some of the most unhealthy people I know. I work in a hospital, see it every day. I think what will really surprise you is that the weight stays off when you go back to normal eating. I'm sure you could pig-out for a week or two and get it back if you wanted, but if you were maintaining before, it doesn't seem to take any effort at all to maintain at the new lower weight.

    I can only imagine your co-workers reactions when they find out you lost with an all-potato diet. The good thing is that once you do it, you are an instant expert. No special training necessary!

    Maybe someone can start a new thread in a couple weeks called 'potato diet long-term results' or similar.

    Well, I get mixed responses from my co-workers for my WOE. Most of them admire my 'willpower' others just think I'm very bizarre.
    I'm actually trying to lose the 15 lbs I've put on over the summer after I had surgery. I'll be damned if I have to look at the cloths in my closet the are too small for me any longer!



    True Story:
    My employer used to have a self-funded health insurance plan a few years ago. One of the many obese/overweight nurses that worked here (she was morbidly obese) wanted to have a gastric bypass. She had tried numerous other ways to lose ~ unsuccessfully.
    The hospital board denied approval and said that the insurance company deemed it "cosmetic" surgery. She quit shortly after that decision. It made me angry because she didn't really have any major health issues at that time and she was actually going to hopefully improve her health and not be such a drain for the hospitals self-funded program.
    During that same time-frame and then shortly after, there were 2 other employees that (1)suffered a stroke (age 72) and (2) had a CABG and never recovered. Both had extremely long hospital stays and basically 'broke' the system within 6 months of the new calendar year.
    Talk about a major fail.

    So hard to have cold potatoes for lunch when it is cold outside but I am sticking to it. Hot tea afterwards but no heated potatoes so I don't eat 1400-1500 cals worth in a day of potatoes again! Sheesh.

    Further to what I was saying yesterday about the knock-on satiety effect of spuds, I lost one pound during my two days of potato eating, jumped on the scale this morning after three days normal eating and have dropped another 3.5!!!

    I'm spudding it again for the next four days and I'll be very, very interested to see what happens.

    Week two Day 5 - 104.00kgs (down 3kgs since start), this time last year after 10 days of spuds I had dropped 6-7kgs but I am eating more than just spuds this time and I started at a lower BF.

    Food yesterday - IF until lunch, 400g BP with TBS of Greek yogurt and a TBS of relish. dinner was 500g of BP with same additions as lunch plus large green salad with grated beets and carrots. Also had a flat white coffee mid day

    exercises - LH Things yesterday morning, 45mins swim in the afternoon, this morning up early for 1 hour body surfing.

    felt a bit lower on energy yesterday evening, due to the workout in the morning, had my fill on spuds and hard not to reach for a big juicy steak. that's reserved for Friday night.

    Cheers

    What is in white potatoes that makes them taste sort of tingly and poisonous? I'm eating organic russet and organic red potatoes, boiled in plain well water. It's nothing new, white taters have always tasted sort of...acidic? Anybody know what substance is there making that flavor?
