    Day 3 recap. Ate just over 2 lbs potatoes. I have been warming them a bit. Too fricken cold out to eat cold potatoes.

    Still odd that I'm not hungry last time I ate was about 6pm yesterday.

    Pros. Seem to be losing weight as advertised
    I know that my bowls weight 1.85 lbs. No cravings to fight.
    Food is cheap.
    I don't seem to have a lack of energy. Been up since 3 am cleaning my house.

    Cons. You have to eat potatoes.
    This is unfortunately not the booze and strippers hack. Though that's probably more costly in many ways.

    The bottom line:
    Day 1 : 200.8
    Day 2: 200.0
    Day 3: 198.6
    Day 4: 197.0 (3.8 pounds down)

    Will most likely stop Saturday night as a friend is having a party. There will be beer, oh yes there will be beer.
    I find your lack of bacon disturbing.

    Potato Diet, Fall 2013

    Blacksmith I am curious if you will lose even more weight once you take the booze break.

    As for me, no weight loss today. I seemed to also have gone up on day 3 last week and then had a whoosh day 4, so maybe it isn't so bad. Will be having a full potato day today. I have a food-laden event from 5-7pm (patent career panel) so wish me luck. :-/ if it is non-paleo food it would be pretty easy for me, but if they have fruit and cheese...
    :-O

    Will stay strong. I might come home after class at 4pm, eat a potato, and go back to school. XD

You could fit the curve with a gently decreasing function but the real curve looked more like short periodic bumps and dips (quick weight gains and losses). But the trend was downward when smoothed.
    Oh don't worry, i'm well versed in the science of fluctuations, lol. Day to day means essentially nothing as many things can affect the scale -- water intake, water retention, food consumed, digested, etc. I know myself well enough to take it with a grain of salt in regards to what foods do xyz to the scale weight in a day period, but it's nice to see the downward trend anyway after yesterday.

    For science!

    ETA: I've essentially played with the same 'weight' +/- 5 for the last year and a half, so nothing will impress me until I finally see less than 190.

    What does potato weekend mean? You ate only potatoes all weekend and gained?

    Yeah it's just what I was calling it, since I only intended at first to go for the 'potato hack' again for just the weekend. Then I figured what the hell, I'll just do another full run of it.

    Cut into wedges, salted and baked. I seem to have more success when they're whole and microwaved. Less dehydration? Unsure.

    Hmmm. Yes. I have the most success with cold unsalted boiled potatoes myself, but I can't bring myself to eat only cold potatoes when we just had our first snow in NYC. Sooooo craving warm/hot foods.

    Haha I don't blame you -- even in Florida I have a hard time with the cold ones. Though my current plate has cooled off so maybe that'll count!

    Potato Diet, Fall 2013

    So this potato hack + transitioning from most of my protein coming from beef/lamb to most it from cottage cheese has made a biiiiig difference in my budget.

    So much more cost effective than s&e. XD

    Starting day #2 of potato hack. Feeling good, no problems, slept well. Workout wasn't very hard. I refined my treadmill time so I am only burning 222.5 calories 6 (at most) days a week, not 235. I did not weigh. I don't want to get into the everyday weighing habit. Maybe I will tomorrow. I don't want to do it if it is going to show weight gain...

    This is what I ate yesterday and the macros, plus 222.5 calories burned on the treadmill:

    Coffee with stevia and whipping cream
    1 pound baked potatoes, skin on, refrigerated cold, salted - 12:30 p.m. (IF 18 hours if I don't count the coffee. Should I? )
    1 pound baked potatoes, skin on, refrigerated cold, salted, 2 cups chicken broth (made w/ 3 tsp. organic chicken base) - 3-3:30 p.m. And boy was I FULL afterwards.

    Calories - 939
    Protein - 10%, 23 grams
    Fat - 7%, 7 grams
    Carbs - 84%, 198 grams

    A bit of a shock after trying to keep the carbs around 25 grams for so many weeks!!
