I felt really great for a few months using my current diet which is widely varied foods: moderate carb, low protein, high fat. Lots of potatoes and sweet potatoes, lots and lots of butter, olive oil, tallow, and other animal fats, lots of... (more)

Like it or not, there are now many credible sources who speaks warmly about the potato diet when it comes to healthy fat-loss. But those it work because it is potatoes and potatoes are magic or can you substitute potatoes for sweet... (more)

Hello! I have been looking into this whole "potato diet" thing, and even though it is pretty much a fad, I want to try it out, just to see how it goes! With that, I have been doing more research, and I seem to find a trend that the most success... (more)

Okay, so this is not a completely crazy idea. There are quite a few threads on Marks Daily Apple with people trying it. It started when a potato farmer decided to eat nothing but potatoes for some time (30 days?) and improved all his health... (more)

Okay, so basically I've been trying to lose weight for a few months now, but can never control my appetite. I thought eating fruit would be okay, but I realize now that my body is weird and doesn't need to be LOW CARB but rather just needs to be... (more)

Keeping in mind the caloric density of butter and potatoes you're probably eating 50% fat 50% carbs on a calorie basis :-) Do note that the starch in potatoes is nothing but a polymer of glucose and by the time that starch gets into your... (more)

Recently Paul Jaminet did a blurb on the Potato Diet that is gaining steam all over the place. He said at http://www.latestinpaleo.com/blog/2012/12/16/perfect-health-diet-qa-with-paul-jaminet.html "What are your thoughts on the Potato Diet,... (more)

I started hearing about the mysterious 'potato diet' a few months ago and gave it a try. Atkins, Paleo, Primal, PHD, etc... all have a problem: The dreaded plateau. I had given up hope for losing my last 10, so I did the 'potato... (more)

Cool experiment. Obviously, amazing results. How did you feel during the 14 days of eating potatoes? I did a shorter version recently just for the experiment of it. I ate nothing but potatoes for 6 days. I did not lose any weight during those... (more)

I've also been wondering about this. Paleo for ~1 year, pretty low carbs (50-70g a day, give or take) and stalled out on weight loss. I don't have much advice to give, but I've heard from quite a few people on this site that upping the carbs... (more)

I have tried to do the potato diet recently but the potatoes plain after a day or two really are just nasty. This is VERY weird for me to say because I LOVE potatoes, but unless there's a little flavor to them I can't eat them. My question is,... (more)

As you can see by my title I've trademarked the term Potato Protocol??? and you must pay me a handsome sum if you wish to use it. Just joking, of course, but hear me out..... There is a low rumble right now in parts of the Paleo community that... (more)

I can attest to the effectiveness of the Potato Protocol, or Primal Potato Diet (PDD) as they call it on Mark's daily Apple. I have been primal for 3+ years, I'm a 48yo/6' guy, went from 275 to 180 over those years. I was full-blown metabolic... (more)
