He dropped this comment on the Facebook thread on my last post, where I expressed disappointment over Fred Hahn’s convenient dismissal, since even though he found a potato diet worked wonders to lose weight, it has to be fundamentally from a low-carb perspective (read the thread). Resistant starch basically makes low carbers look like ignorants and Fred can’t have that. But it just does render them wrong. They have been essentially and fundamentally wrong for four decades. Because, if RS via forbidden foods fixes all sorts of problems people complain about on LC, then in the words of Mr. Brownlow, ‘low carb is an ass.’
Been doing RS (jumped right in at 4TBL/day…I guess I got lucky I did not explode) Purely subjective findings: Digestion is better than in past 15 years. My pesky problem of not tolerating the carbs I need to train MMA/BJJ is largely gone. I still partition more carbs PWO, have fewer on non-training days, but overall very impressed with the results. I bit leaner, good performance. In the past my concept of “gut health” largely started and stopped with “avoid gluten.” Now I look at green plantain chips as a means to get “awesome poos” and stave off blood sugar wackyness. I would have called extreme BS on this as I;ve always eaten a ton of greens, squash etc but I find Richard does not align with silly shit AND the solution was like $2/bag. When shit is that cheap, it’s got to work.
As emphasized, potato starch is just food. Here, watch…and especially, to anyone who’s been lied to by any glom-on charlatan recently, that it’s “man made resistant starch” or thereabouts. Here, you can make it yourself if a few bucks per bag of BRM is too much for you.
Oh, and liars will always lie.
Thanks to Robb for not tarnishing himself by posting about a bullshit week long “test” and trying to cover his past ass by dismissing it and though it’s meaningless.
Hopefully, Fred Hahn’s fans will take his behavior into account when evaluating anything he says to them in the future. For the record, it is immaterial whether PS is something that works for Fred or doesn’t. My beef is with the “study” method and “reporting.”
