--And as UK Veterinarian Peter has also hypothesized, there may be a cute little trick that helps this along. Now while Peter-as a species agnostic veterinarian-is difficult for mere mortals to understand, things begin to sink in upon 2-3 readings of a post. The gist as this mortal understands: very, very low fat is essential. Pancreatic beta cells require fat to produce the insulin necessary to regulate blood glucose. Ahha! Lets load up on glucose, no or very little fat, and where does that fat to produce the insulin necessary to deal with the glucose have to come from? Your fat ass, that's where.

So if I'm reading this correctly, we're taking diet advice from veterinarians now? Also, WTF is a "species agnostic" veterinarian?

It's a veterinarian who thinks he can practice medicine on humans, too.

I've been living on coffee and cigarettes for the past couple days with this deadline looming and I'm down a belt notch.

Book deal please!

If you can manage to eat French fries and hash browns with no added fats and oils, knock yourself out. I'm pretty sure the Irish left during the famine not because there were no potatoes, but no flavor to add to them.

I've been on a bender for the past week, and I've lost 10 pounds. When I run out tomorrow, I'll start puking. I'll likely lose another 5-10 from that.

/I win!

Newsflash: Eating fewer calories of almost anything will result in weight loss.

Holy dicks, it gets better. The guys from the linked article went into the BB comment thread, and douched-off to the point where he got banned from the site that linked to his site. My sides are moving on their own.

I don't think he really lost 5 pounds, sounds like more than he can count to - Must have lost track once he hit Potato, what with the diet and all.

Mmmm... baked potatoes. Potato stew. Potato casserole. Fried potatoes.

/yes, I understand the entire point of a diet is healthy eating, not crazy eating

I loved the "I'm 52 years old" comment right before he was banned by a 55 year old mod.

Totally read that headline as the "Akins diet" and I assumed it was something about if you legitimately overeat, the body has ways to just shut digestion down.
 
2012-11-16 08:16:11 AM
So the two food items mentioned are two items you can`t eat following this diet

The fail is strong in this one.

Old and busted: dieting.
New hotness: eat smaller portions, move a bit, and make that permanent.

The weight loss industry doesn't exist to actually help you succeed, folks. That would put it out of business.
 
2012-11-16 10:30:05 AM
Yes, that's exactly what fat people need to do, deliberately handicap their bodies insulin production. What kind of pussy needs eyes and kidneys anyway?
 
2012-11-16 10:48:09 AM
Maybe if you eat them raw, but potatoes are crap food.

French Fry and hash Brown diet? Been on it for years and still can not reach a weight over 150 (varies from 125-140 lbs normally). though i think im weird and in the minority on metabolism.

the Military used this same diet in WWII to get skinny drafties weights up
 
2012-11-16 11:51:42 AM
oh wow should have read the whole thing. gets weird (and this is me who calls himself weird) at the bottom. wow. yeah add proteins and fats to that diet or your body starts eating itself slowly.

If you're a three-foot tall, 150lb smurf, you're basically a blue potato already.

I've lost about 15 pounds in the last 4.5 weeks with this wacky plan: Spend about an hour at the gym 5-7 days a week and keep the calories per day under 2000.

The fat cows are fed corn, soy and sometimes small amounts of other animals. Being shot up with various hormones helps too. Grass fed cows are relatively lean.
