Aguy:I did RS diet years and years ago when they first found out about butyrate, stopped early into the diet after eating a can of split pea soup,
some of the worst gas and cramps I ever had. I may revisit this shortly, I am finding conflicting results as to whether RS is present in canned beans or not. I found one site where they said there is none, I will keep at it and see if I can find an answer. If I restart will go slow,anything that up regulates IL-10 is good.I also have done FOS and Inulin, lots of gas and pain.
I have always done well with Pure Green Protein since it is from peas.
I started RS diet with RS3 sub-category and the room temp potatos and pasta was very low on the scale, where RS1 Navy beans have 3x - 10x as much and from everything I read only RS3 requires heat-then-cool preparation so we should be able to eat beans hot. I could experiment with cooled beans for a few days and if there is a striking difference then I know what the answer is.
Nothing works like Vicadin or the I.V. narcotic they gave me for angiogram 2 weeks ago -perfect fat ropelike waste, but you cannot go thru life on narcotics.
RS makes mine solid and clay like, but I am tapering fast and on high dose coumadin plus clot buster Serrapeptase and Nattokinase, risky but was making progress however this puts the gut at high risk with prednisone dropping. So cutting out Serra and Natto till post-taper to zero.
It seemed like RS reduced inflammation resulting in needing much less prednisone.
Hard to find much more info, keep running into the same articles on RS - it is fairly new on the scene.
Navy beans are tops and adding salsa and swiss cheese makes a delicious meal.
Bananas are next highest but need to be green - just the opposite of what Elaine G. calls for
Pasta/potatos etc are pretty low but give us a bit of variety.
Hope you give it a whirl, again only RS1 navy beans & green bananas were game-changing for me I did not notice a huge difference with RS3.
