Bought my potatoes today, organic red and Yukon gold, 7 lbs should be enough for 3 days though I think I want to do 5. So I'll probably have to run out and buy some more come wednesday. I'm really looking forward to this! I'm a little worried that I'm going to experience bloating and gas from eating nothing but potatoes though. My body has not been responding well to starches the last few months so either this will cure it or make it worse, we'll see!

I wish I could find the last thread where I posted all my day to day medical stuff... My fasting blood glucose was lower prior to the hacks but (60's/70's) vs. now (80's/90's) but my A1C is lower (5.2 vs. 5.9) which seems to indicate that I am not having the blood glucose swings as much as I was before. Prior to the hacks, I was VERY carb sensitive. Anything starchy or sweet, including things like hummus or fruit, would have my weight bumping up by 3-6 pounds the next day which took forever to get off. These days, I can eat just about anything and not have huge fluctuations. For example last night I had chicken wings, french fries (a huge order and I ate them all myself), and beer and was only up 0.8 pounds today, despite it being completely laden with commercial salt. I eat fruit, carby nuts like cashews, and chocolate (85%) daily and I am maintaining happily at 140 (I'm 5'9") with very little exercise.

Day 3 of the potato hack for me. Had some tummy trouble/constipation last night, but my evening fiber/powdered magnesium drink seemed to set me back on the right track. I don't notice any weight loss yet... time will tell. Not sure how long I'll keep this up. I guess until I start feeling crappy, or until Monday, since that's an UD on my schedule so I'd planned lunch with a friend.

One thing I must say: this diet is incredibly cheap! Where was this when I was young and broke? I've also noticed that I'm less hungry than on a typical DD, so that's a benefit.

Thanks for the info, Shelby! It's encouraging to see the great results others have gotten. I hope at some point I'll see them too!

Yep, I will have to try to prepare them differently next time ~ your recipe sounds de-lish and one that I plan to try! I just realized, because others have mentioned, since my one-day hack on Tuesday my body doesn't seem sensitive to carbs like it was before the hack. I never put the two together until I just read it here which has convinced me that I definitely need to do another hack next week prior to my vacation!

I don't think anyone fully understands how the hack actually works, but for most people it does helps with various things! Long live the potato

DH does this MWF, then we try to be reasonable with calories/carbs the other 4 days.

Here is how we do it - take 10 pounds of potatoes - we use Russet - rinse off the dirt, then soak in a plastic tub for at least 10 minutes but usually 30. Preheat oven to 400* and line two big rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cut potatoes into chunks like home fries. I halve the potato crosswise, then cut lengthwise into thirds, then turn and cut into half, so I end up with 12 "strips" of potato, which I then cut crosswise into 1/2" or so pieces. Spread them onto the baking sheets evenly, spray very lightly with olive oil spray, sprinkle with garlic salt, and pop into the oven for an hour, or til browning to your liking. Remove from oven, let cool to room temp, put the chunks from each sheet into a gallon ziploc and refrigerate til cold, then press out the air, seal, and freeze.

When ready to eat, pour out however many of the potatoes you want into a bowl and put in the microwave on High power til hot. DH likes either salsa, or mustard, chopped onion, and chopped pepperoncinis, or a tablespoon of Tostitos salsa con queso cheese sauce (very low in fat, high in flavor) and salsa. He eats that 3 or 4 times a day.

We just restarted this about 6 weeks ago and he's down about 10 pounds. On the Up days, we have whatever we want within reason, and we go out to eat usually once a week.

He is VERY happy with this. The potatoes keep his hunger at bay and it seems to last into the next day as well. He feels that his blood sugars stay more stable eating this way (we don't test as he is not diabetic, but he is definitely carb-sensitive) - I cannot eat that many potatoes, but on down days, I usually have something else that has been cooked and cooled and reheated, like quinoa or brown rice, with some of the salsa con queso and some diced pickled jalapenos. I really do think there is something to the resistant starch aspect. DH says he has the best results reheating frozen, previously-cooked potatoes and I can't argue with his success!

I think I did 5 or so hacks? The last one was early 2014 so it's been a while. The minimum was 3 days and I think the max was about 5 days. I just couldn't do it past 5 days.

Well, I'm excited. I tried it once before and had bad results on day 2. Got very dizzy and almost fainted. After eating a slice of pizza I was fine, but hoping for the best.

My plan is either 4 or 5 days.

I realize I'm a bit ahead of the curve, but since I started before I found this thread, might as well go with it... day 4 for me of nothing at all but lemon water, potatoes with salt, pepper, and a bit of nonfat broth. Yesterday I mashed 2 giant russet baking potatoes in the morning, let them cool, and ate that intermittently all day. That was all I had, and I didn't want any more.

Also went on a food shopping trip, and got (among other things) some Bob's Red Mill unprocessed potato starch. Thinking of having a bit every day after the hack is over, just to see whether it helps with appetite or anything else.

Feeling pretty good. No more tummy trouble, maybe partially because I've been pounding lemon water. I still haven't noticed any weight loss, but I think it's working -- because TOM started unexpectedly yesterday, and I had zero bloating, which is incredibly unusual. I'm thinking I may (fingers crossed) have a whoosh in a week or so. Really looking forward to seeing everyone else's results on this hack!

Are their any staples that are useful to have on hand for the potato hack?
I'm going to the grocery store soon to get my spuds.

Carly, the only things I've been using are organic spuds -- I prefer the waxy ones to the baking ones as they're more versatile -- and alternating between "Better than Bouillon" broth mix and actual canned low-fat chicken broth to steam the potatoes in the microwave and then mash them in the liquid. Oh, and salt and pepper. I threw a bit of rosemary in there a few times too. Some, I have heard, use a little ketchup/chili sauce/vinegar. I worry that those things are too sweet (assuming malt vinegar, since white vinegar has no sugar), but the hack seems to work for some who use them. I just wanted to stay "pure" so in case the hack didn't work out, I wouldn't wonder if it was the extras that scuttled it. If it does work, I may add in some of those things in the future.

I love A-1 on cold potatoes or dill mustard. You don't need much. But it helps break up the monotony. And hash browns!
Another thing I tried last time- quite by accident- was turn one potato into gravy... Added some chicken bouillon and herbs and poured it over reheated cubed potatoes.
If you cook one potato- I was using Yukons I think?? Maybe baby reds?? In water. Pour out the excess and mash it turns into gravy- makes sense because they sell potato flour to be used as a thickener.

So I had planned to keep on this for a 5th day and then resume regular JUDDD with my regular UD on Monday. However, I started to feel totally run-down and horrible yesterday afternoon. Just could not shake it. I had to have some "real food" (not that spuds aren't, but you know what I mean....). I think it might be because of a really unusually heavy TOM, but whatever the reason, I had to call it quits. On a potato-heavy but not 100% spud DD today. I think I might try doing my DDs as potato days, or I may try another 4-day hack soon. Still not sure I lost anything, either, so I guess I'd say that for me, the experiment was inconclusive. Best of luck to all of you who are starting tomorrow!

Would having a little 0% (fat free) Greek yogurt be okay on a Potato Hack? And what about salsa that has no sugar? I am just trying to plan out different ways to eat the spuds so that I don't get bored. I did pick up some of the diced potatoes with onions & green peppers. Thanks for the suggestion. I am looking forward to trying those!

I've used salsa with no issues and I think a small amount of yogurt would be fine, as long as it's the 0/low fat kind

It's always a bummer when tom/hormones get in the way of our plans You might still see a whoosh after tom finishes up though!

I'm heading out yet tonight to get my potatoes I had planned on getting frozen diced bagged ones, but I just checked my store's ad and they have 5lb bags of whites for $1! So I'm going to get 15lbs/$3 and whatever I don's use I'll save for mashed potatoes for the family later this week.

It's been a calorie heavy weekend (I discovered the awesomeness that is the Banana Foster milkshake ), so I know the scale is going to be up quite a bit tomorrow. The potato hack should help correct my recent indulgences

I believe I'm about as prepared as possible:
2 servings large diced potatoes in the freezer
1-2 servings O'Brien precooked potatoes
Big bowl of pre boiled red potatoes
Extra fresh russets and red potatoes
Extra O'Briens in the freezer
SF Ketchup, Bolthouse Avocado/Cilantro dressing, Mustard, Queso cheese dip, I can't believe it's not butter spray, FF H&H.

I'm planning:
B - Coffee with FF H&H, Faux potato salad
L - O'Briens with Queso
D - Big baked potato with butter spray

It has not been a good week, sugar and carb fest. I'm up to the top of my weight for the year. Looking forward to seeing the low again, reducing cravings and stabilizing.

All right it's Monday-let the Great Potato Hack Begin

My morning weigh-in/pre-hack: 132lbs (pretty sure 2 of those pounds are courtesy of the banana fosters I enjoyed this weekend lol).

Well I feel like I've set myself up for skewed results off the bat! I ate horribly yesterday and I'm up 4 lbs overnight! That and I was up two from Saturday so in the last 2 days I've gained 6 lbs. so if that's all I lose on this hack it'll get me back to where I was before the weekend not exactly what I was aiming for, sigh.

Anywho maybe Ill lose the bloat and then some we'll see. I bought another bag of potatoes yesterday so I have 5lbs russet , 4lb Yukon and 3 lbs red. I'm having my coffee black with some stevia right now. As far as condiments go, I have hot sauce, vinegar, lots of seasonings, and low fat chicken broth. Also have salsa, ketchup , soy sauce so I figure I'll have enough things to keep it different. Think I'm going to make oven fries out of the russets and maybe just bake or boil the rest? Idk yet hash browns would be sweet but I don't have a waffle iron.

Let's do this! Can't wait to see everyone results!

Day 1: 185.4

I'm not doing the PH, but I thought of you all last night when I bought a 5 lb bag of russets at the grocery store.

Vlo1125 and TerriMM-look at the positive, the only direction is down from this point on (I don't think I've ever read of someone gaining on the hack, unless tom jumps into the fray lol).

We can do this!


Anyone else joining in with us this week? You can do just one day, or the whole week

On the boards with my first batch of potatoes eaten My husband had bought a container of seasoning salt from Steak n Shake, so I used that with my oven crisped potatoes and they were really good! I'll definitely use it again Ok, next potato meal at 3pm for me hoorah!

That's true Sara! Well I made oven fries, then I tried to make Chips that burnt ! I shredded one potato to make hash browns,and diced another to put in some chicken broth later. After I peeled them it was 2 and half lbs so that's all I'll make today. Really hoping to see great results, going for 5 days!
