Otis fad diet thread — yoga, fasting, and kevzilla walking on🚶‍♂️


Recommended Posts

Made sweet potato wedge fries this morning.

Taste good, didn't come out as crisp as the regular potatoes.  Think I boiled em too long.  Oh well, like I said.. taste great with nothing but a tiny bit of salt over them while baking. :thumbup:

Also - this is too easy.

so for those in the know, sweet potatoes just as good or even better than non-sweet?

 

They're fine if you're just going a few days. If you plan to do this for a month straight, I wouldn't use sweet potatoes exclusively. (A mix of 80% white to 20% sweet should be okay.) Sweet potatoes are lacking in certain nutrients (including protein), so they're not as good an option for very long hacks.

Apparently not as good, but still good on the "for you" scale.

so what's on the menu today?

2 red potatoes, microwaved 4 mins,  de-skinned and cut into quarters, sprinkle little salt and pepper and just eat. they taste reasonably sweet.   i'm full enough.   that was breakfas at 9AM.    i had white potatoes last night,  i prefer the flavor of the reds, and the texture is more solid.    just did the mirror test this morning I think i lost a pound or two in one day.

i can't imagine doing this for more than a week.   a month seems excessive and potentially unhealthy.      I guess i could see 3-4 days on,   3-4 days off kind of rotation to keep your weight progressively dropping

Pretty sure im doing this wrong. I thought you could eat as many potatoes as you want. But at close to 300 calories, eating 5 puts me at 1500. I typically eat that during normal weight loss periods.

The Otis List of Diet Excuses

  1. My in-laws are in town this week.
  2. I'm traveling for work.
  3. It's my (wife's birthday, anniversary, Mother's Day, etc)
  4. I'm drinking red wine and gorging myself on mexican food and I don't care.  It's DELICIOUS!

Just pre-loading them so you can cut and paste from the list next week, pal.  #stayfat #poatatodiet2016

That right there may be your problem. Try getting them into your body through another avenue.  Massive caloric savings.

Trust the process and eat as many potatoes as you want. (Your average russet potato has around 170 calories.)

What kind of potato has 300 calories?

This isn't something to worry about.

Thanks.  Looked at my WW App.  Medium Russet - 168 calories, Large Russet - 290 calories

1 pound of russets - 359 calories , 5 pounds of russets - 1,793 calories

I know I'm way behind here but is Otis still doing fade diets without working and wondering why he's still fat?

He is interested in losing 30 pounds while eating nachos and drinking IPA's.

Maurile,

Are you doing this/have you done it in the past?

This is his 4th? diet thread in 1.5 years... He knows what he is asking for when he starts it. 

I am aware.. but you guys seem a little overly invested.

As I mentioned elsewhere... the Otis stalker crowd seems to be rivaling tim's.

As I mentioned 30 seconds ago, Otis knows and probably enjoys the responses that are inevitably coming when he posts about his newest fad diet. 

He refuses to just slightly modify eating habits and exercise... It is entertaining, good shtick, but highly ridiculous. It's a :tfp: that I can't look away from.

For 5-6 years in a row now my weight is on a 20-25 lb (225-250) roller coaster - bottoming out in the summer and topping out in January.  I am guilty of using all kinds of strategies myself.  If it gets me to beach shape by next month (anywhere below 230)... I'll eat potatoes.

If I can ever manage to stop failing through the holidays, I won't have to make these efforts.... till then -  Go Hashbrowns!

You're just jealous of my pound-shredding ability.  Can't wait to hit that scale tomorrow.  This is the easiest diet ever invented in the history of the universe.

I've done it, but generally just for 1-2 days at a time. I'm undecided on whether to join you guys in the near future for a longer run. (It wouldn't be for at least another week, though. I've got perishable food to eat before then that I don't want to throw away.)

I'm still anxiously awaiting a photo of like 300 potatoes you have stashed in your garage.

Would've been great shtick to have your desk surrounded by potatoes when you uploaded your Shuke fan club photo from this weekend while eating the bowl of potatoes.

Would be great to have you on board.  I think you should join us.  This is a no-brainer.

Yeah, I just picked up a ton of stuff last night, so I'm thinking about delaying my trial a few days.

I wanted to offer Otis some opportunities to avoid the pitfalls inherent in an effort such as this.  One of the biggest is maintaining over vacations.  I thought I'd look, therefore, into potato-centric vacations, you know, somewhere where the potato is so celebrated that it will dominate the local cuisine.  Sadly Google is not as powerful as I had hoped.  I did, however, learn of Potatopia.  it is going to be the next big craze in franchise eateries, or so they say.

 

Otis, there's a franchise near you.

 

Now granted, they do have some dishes that might not technically qualify for your diet, but they are dedicated to the potato.
