Potatoes are rich in minerals and are mostly water, so they are not fattening by themselves.

You don't get fat from eating potatoes. Potatoes are rich in important minerals, like potassium calcium, iron, and phosphorus. They are also good a source of vitamins C, A, B, and P (flavonoids).

People think that potatoes are fattening, but they are 75 percent water. It’s the butter, cheese, and sour cream that make potatoes fattening! With 17% starch content, a potato is one of the best naturally occurring sources of starch.

Help Yourself Succeed by Getting Support

Imagine that you are trying to avoid white rice and someone sitting next to you is enjoying a hot bowl of white rice with your favourite curry on top. Annoying, isn’t it? Perhaps even insensitive? One very important key to successfully losing weight is to find yourself a good support system.

  • Educate your friends, family, and coworkers about your struggle with weight. Inform them about the foods you are trying to cut out of your diet. Some of them may even join you or will at least not eat such foods in front of you. This will help remove temptation. It's much easier to avoid something when it’s out of sight. If you can, surround yourself with people who are willing to help and support you.

Through out the day I drank 10 glasses of water and drank some green tea. I ate fruits all day apples, oranges, & grapes. Whenever I feel hungry I just drank more water and ate more fruits. I didn't feel quesy or sluggish. I even did 15 min workout. So far this diet is working out pretty good for me:) Stay tuned...

      @lola 50% of nutritionist don't believe on calorie intake theory so i wouldn't weigh every thing in matter of calories. Our body behave in a very signature manner and its all a combination of chemical reactions. So weight loss varies from body to body some people gain quickly and some don't, some lose weight quickly and for some its a very difficult process.

      Today is my day 2... Yesterday was so much more difficult then i thought! The fruit did not leave me full! I did not eat as much as recommended.. Probably around 2 apples, 1 orange, half a watermelon, some honey doo and a pomegranate.

      But today I did better.. were we only supposed to eat greens? This morning I had tomatoes, cucumber and then had that again for lunch. (I don't like salad) and then after school i had potatoes carrots and onions baked.. Is that bad? Now i am thinking about grilling some mushrooms in onions..

      I also had some pickles. Can i eat this? I need help!

      also, i am 112 pounds and 5'2 will this work? Can i make one or two cups of my water flavoured? Thanks!

      @Pokadot242 i recommend greener vegetables more . Drop onions , cucumber is good , also don't heat vegetables can be consumed raw. Also if you had pickles its fine for now but in future try to have some thing fresh and greener.

      Day 1 I had watermelon, green apples, oranges and grapefruit.

      This morning I had sweet potato instead of white as I thought it would be better but reading above you said no - why is this?

      I've made your salad for lunch and dinner.

      I am down day one. It wasn't too hard. I did feel a bit hungry but nothing unbearable. I had a harder time for some reason getting all the water down and don't think I got the 10 glasses in. Needless to say I woke up today MORE than two pounds down. I was SHOCKED and excited all at once. Of course my hubby told me that it was all water weight, so I hope that is not true. I just ate my potato and strangely couldn't finish the whole thing. I was sooo full. I love vege's so I'm looking forward to today. Especially with Tomatoes and onions, but I'm not a fan of cabbage so I'm not sure what to do on soup day. I will suffer through with results like this. For one week? I mean really WHO can't do this? It's 7 days?!?! I'm truly hoping this works.

      @Riya its a great thing but too much sugar . Logic is that nature only allows you to have small amount of sugar cane when you eat is the old fashioned way. When to take the juice out you can consume 3 to 4 canes without putting in any effort. So if you have strong teeth you can try sugar cane but not the juice .

      So excited. Starting day 2 and already lost 2lbs. I was 143llbs (Hope to say goodbye to that number forever) and would like to be around 130. I tend to be a nervous eater so this diet is perfect in that I can eat when I feel hungry. I have to admit I was skeptical and thought I'd feel weak the first day, but I actually didn't have major cravings and was able to make a pork loin dinner for my family without feeling an urge to give up.

      1. Tried the milk with honey and lemon, and the milk curdled (yuck). Tossed it and just had milk and honey (much better) and put the lemon juice in my water.

      2. Made the salad this morning. Wow!! This is alot! Why so much? Do people actually eat all of it?

      i lost 2pounds on day 1 and i only had 1 mini potato and ate it,but 2 hours later i got hungry and made the salad but only added, lettuce, leaves, tomatoes, carrots, and onions.....is that bad? but im afraid im going to get hungry later on, what can i eat besides another salad?

      (not a big fan of salads)

      Ok.. So I'm an idiot! I mentioned previously that I had milk and added lemon juice and the result was curdled milk. Duh! I misread it...guess you meant warm water. Thought I'd explain my mistake. Wouldn't want anyone else doing that! Yikes!

      Hello Bilaras! I'm excited to start tomorrow. I just have some questions:

      Why do you say in some answers to people's questions that we shouldn't drink water after eating?

      If we do the diet for 2-3 weeks in a row, wouldn't we become defficient in some aminoacids from lack of protein in the diet?

      For day 4, can we use greek yogurt instead of milk (making sure the portion has the same amount of calories); will this affect my progress??

      Thanks!! I need to lose 20 lbs and so hope to be able to do the diet 2-3 weeks in a row!

      - Can we use mustard for dressing?

      - Can we eat red/green bell peppers in veggie days?

      - Can we use miso soup to add flavor to the veggie soup?

      - Can we eat seaweed?

      - Can I eat spinach or spring mix lettuce instead of the cabbage?

      Thanks!!

      @Todtuga888 if you are over weight then cutting down proteins for few days won't harm you in anyway. If you are looking for balanced diet then it wont help you lose weight fast . Purpose here is to lose weight quick and to do that you must sacrifice few things for a short period. I have recently posted a very balanced monthly diet plan you can also check it out .

      - lime juice and salt good (also try hint of olive oil and green herbs .)

      - mustard good but not the paste just raw mustard .

      - red/green bell peppers really good

      - miso soup not good for diet

      - seaweed yes but in small quantity

      - spinach or spring mix lettuce good add cabbage and its a perfect combination.

      I need your help! Yesterday Day 1 was a great success (lost 4lbs) , however today has been a struggle for me to get down all these veggies and put nothing on it. I have a pretty active job and workout and I felt weak and dizzy at times today. The simple lemon dressing you recommended I don't like so I did not eat the salad and snacked on raw celery/baby carrots and had the potato and water for the day. I know I'm not eating enough so my plan was as I continue, on salad days I will make a salad, get a low calorie ranch or vinagreitte dressing (70-80 cals), dilute it with water, and use just a bit on my salad. I really want to continue and this is the only way I can force myself to eat all the vegetables on this plan. Is that ok for my results? PLEASE ANSWER ASAP THANK YOU!!

      As a diabetic I was skeptical if I could actually do this diet, but my wife started it with me and we are on day 2. Yesterday was tough and I had to cheat a little because my insulin levels were causing me to go hypo a few times. I did lower my insulin levels for today and have noticed that I feel better and the potato this morning filled me up. Have lost 2.5 lbs since yesterday and feel quite a bit less bloated! Also my cravings for sweets and chocolate have gone away. I do well for a while when I go on kicks like this, but what do you recommend long term for avoiding cravings and falling back into over indulge mode after the diet is done?

    • Bilaras profile image
      Author

      Edward Harris MSc 4 years ago from Earth

      @Truthteller4260 eat healthy and cravings will go away . Best way is to stay close to nature. Have fruits, vegetables and meat in balanced proportion . Do not over eat. Do not drink water after your meal either have it during meal or before meal. Small multiples meals always help. Cook your own food it will help you develop patience. For diabetic keep an emergency snack with you all the time. Remember a golden rule putting too much flavour in a single bite is not natural and causes food addiction. So always go for simple recipes and avoid complicated food mixes.

I ate 2 apples, 2 pears, 3 oranges, almost 1/2 of a watermellon, a pomegranite and a grapefruit. Had my honey lemon drink in the morning and drank just over 10 glasses of water. I was in the bathroom like ALL the time!!! My stomach was totally bloated as well. Woke up this morning on day 2, and weighed in 2.6lbs less then yesterday! Wahuu! Crossing my fingers I lose the full 10lbs so I can make my goal this month!!! Had my honey lemon drink this morning and my potato with salt and Cholula sauce on it. IS CHOLULA SAUCE FINE TO USE???

      I'm on day two. I ate a bag of trail mix. its NOT the kind with chocolate though IT HAD PEANUTS, RAISINS, BANANA CHIPS, CASHEWS, PINEAPPLE, PAPAYA, AND CRANBERRIES.. DO I NEED TO START ALL OVER OR IS THAT OK? THE NET WEIGHT OF THE BAG WAS 6OZ
