Potatoes and rice for weight loss

Post by Fat belly dog on Mon Dec 03, 2012 7:36 am

Hi all,

I have just finished 2 rounds of eating plain white rice and potatoes with minimal veggies and no added fat and have lost 7kgs ( 15.4 lbs) in 15 days ( 10 days the 5 days) This is from ray cronies web site, free the animal and marks daily apple blog sites.

The rules are:
A) Eat mainly potatoes, boiled, baked, mashed as plain as possible
B) eat boiled rice, brown is better
C) add no fat to cooking or eating, no butter, cream, olive oil, sour cream nil none plain is best
D) add chilli sauce or herbs and spices, use minimal, salt, vinegar and peppers fine
E) drink, water, black tea, black coffee, herbal teas. No milk, sugar etc
F)NOT A LONG TERM EATING PLAN, only do it for 14 days
g) do it during a deload week, I still swam but didn't do many BW or KB sessions. I had no energy loss if anything felt better

Potatoes and rice fill you up so you end up eating well below daily calorie requirement. Potatoes have all essential amino acids so minimal muscle loss. Basically you switch to using your body fat, also reports of metabolism increase due to gut bacteria changing to live of mainly starch. Any way read Rays site, lots of good info on there. It worked for me and post diet I have had minimal weight gain. Super cheap way of doing a detox.

Read bullet point f).....

Boring as bat shit to eat, I did it for 10 days first round and had a weeks break and then did a 5 days. You will get sick of plain spuds...

Very interesting. Boring, yes, I almost cried reading your post (:tongue:), but still, 7 kg is worth it. Keep up the good work. What is next on the nutrition agenda after this?

Yeah Dave I almost chucked a few times towards the end gagging down plain spuds. But it works for 80% of people. I had got to a stage that even eating very low carb and well below BMR levels I was stuck at 110Kgs, I might drop below for a day or so but would bounce back up around that 110 kgs. So I gave the Potatoes a go with an open mind, lowest I got down to was 102.8kgs mid last week,. Finished up last week at 104kgs and now sitting at that and holding that steady despite what I eat or drink. Its a great way to break a stall point if you are trying to lose weight and havent budged for a few months despite limiting food choices.

I have about 5-8kgs to go to get down to ~12% BF so would like to do that over the next few months. Nutritionally wise I typically eat whole unprocessed foods (Paleo/primal) focusing on meat, veggies and fruit with limited dairy. Try to limit bread to 1 -2 times per week and dont eat high processed sugars etc so will stick to that for the next few weeks up to xmas. So focus is clean eating mod fat's meat and now added in starches.

Its not for everyone, if you feel like shit or not losing weight after a couple of days dont continue with it. You will also eat well under your daily requirements as 100g of spuds is only 80 cals so to eat 2000 cals you need to eat 2kgs plus of spuds a day which is heaps, rice is ~ 200 cals per cooked (white) so thats 10 cups of cooked rice again way more than I could get down in a day.

Cheers

If you've been doing low carb for a while sometimes you need to carb back up for a few days to reset your metabolism and get fat loss happening again. 14 days might be a bit long (or maybe not) but it obviously worked for you. Great job!
