Well, if LCers and LC Paleos are too afraid of all starch—even starch that’s digested by gut bacteria into short chain fatty acids (beloved saturated fat)—and thus too lame to help diabetics for their own ignorance—as we saw in comments in the last RS post—then I’ll just have to take a SAD eater.
I have to say a big THANK YOU to Tatertot for that RS list. Somehow or another I stumbled onto this site and all the information concerning RS. I am a Type II diabetic and found it very interesting. I started earlier this week using potato starch anywhere I could, such as mixed in yogurt, a glass of milk, or even in canned black beans that I had. It is amazing at the difference this has made in my blood sugar levels. I do not eat a paleo diet, actually closer to the SAD (I know, I know, the flogging may commence!). But, I just wanted to share my 2¢ about the starch and how it helps. I’m eating more things cold that would contain RS (e.g. pastas, even pizza). The numbers don’t lie; my sugars are consistently lower than if I would eat the same foods piping hot. I truly do appreciate all the effort you guys have been putting into this subject. It is quite fascinating!
Ashamed much? I sincerely hope so. Thought you were supposed to lead the way.
