In retrospect, I don't know exactly why I went after my longtime friend so publicly and sternly (here and here). I suppose I like to think it's because that's what I got out of listening to hundreds of his podcasts on the road. I heard him over and over again entertain virtually any relevent thing, and put it out there for his readers to decide for themselves.
Admittedly, stirring damn Potato Starch—that's pennies per dose—into a glass of water and downing it is fucking ridiculous. Who the fuck comes up with this shit, anyway?
But it works, and Tim and I laf all the time about how unlikely that is, and what a tough row it is that we have to hoe because it's just stupid. You actually hope for far more modest testimonials, because as it stands, the testimonials are so damn profound that, given the foregoing paragraph, it becomes embarrassing. People will laf at me. People...laf at me.
But, let them, because it's true. There's comments on the blog, comments in FB, Tweets and G+'s from many, all saying the same thing; and today, in particular, was a banner day for both Type 1 and 2 diabetics. Two T2s reported that they had achieved the best blood glucose regulation in 20+ years. Another had a fasting blod glucose today of 63 after being amazed over some previous days that he was in the 70s. A Type 1 went hypoglycemic, not thinking he needed to lower his dose of insulin.
But this is just today. I've been seeing well more than 90% benefit for months, and months, and I finally decided I had to risk my friendship with Jimmy to have him get it out there to his people because let's face it: for better or worse, some people simply require a green light from a trusted source before they will even consider something—especially downing a silly cheap white powder.
So, Jimmy did: What’s All The Fuss About Resistant Starch?
Thanks Jimmy. Given the nature of this particular intervention—it's starch, and not only that, but just a cheap bag of desiccated raw white potato powder from the grocery store—I'm lafing, thinking about how you must have thought—eye rolling and face palming—as I was going all off on you.
But you checked it out. I guess it sounded too crazy not too. Or something.
That's a fair and open-minded post, sir. By that act, I am firmly convinced, based upon the hundreds of 90%+ positive testimonials over 8 months, that you have just acted in a way that will help people and the people they care about. Yep, in addition, I'm now receiving reports from people, that they have their families and friends on this funny, cheap, white powder you can get at the market too.
Fucking funny, eh?
