Are you eating an exclusive RS diet or just adding RS foods to your normal diet? Hope your success continues. I'm thinking of giving this a try too.
Thanks Indy, Yes I am adding it in everywhere I can, target is 20-30 grams of fiber daily and I want it mostly RS fiber.
Began with cooled pasta and cooled potato, no gain BUT I was not adhering to 'cooked,cooled and stored for a period of time'.
Went to legumes and cheapo brand had amazing effect and gassy.
Moved on to pricier brand that said it washed and soaked and rinsed.
No gas at all and kind of seemed like the benefit was lacking too ( need to revisit that test )
Returned to cheap .50 cent cans and benefit returned, a bit gassy so eat late in the day at office and dinner.
Now I stopped legumes because RS type 2 HI-MAIZE starch arrived in 5 lb bag.
I also eat green banana's, Elaine would hate this but RS diet calls for it.
Some breads mention restricted starch in my kitchen, they are gluten free type
Some drink powders like Squenchers mention restricted starch diet and I use that.
I baked HI-Maize into muffins.
Beyond that I eat whatever I want, sugary dannon natural coffee flavored yogurt is good but too sweet that I am on the diet which controls glucose tolerance etc. I also love Dannon natural vanilla yogurt which is loaded with sugar. At the office I ate a big bag of
cookies one day after climbing 15 flights of stairs. I would say I am eating pretty healthy but if I want a peanut butter or almond butter and honey sandwhich I wont hesitate to eat one or two.
Trying to slip as much RS into my diet as I can.
No milk and I am avoiding anything with sulfites. It removes B1 and after a period of that people start looking like UC'ers. Out went my favorite hash browns 'simply potatos' I think is the brand. I read any potato product missing the skin is likely to have sulfites.
Here is reminder of the RS types.RS1
On the starch resistant scale of RS1 to RS4, lentils and beans come in at RS1. Using a half-cup of beans or lentils in your diet may add between 2 to 4 g of resistant starch. A daily intake of around 25 g from different sources may be adequate.RS2
HI-Maze is example of RS food occurring naturally in granular form. This is a flour substitute.RS3
An RS3 designation refers to foods that have been cooked and cooled such as yams and potatoes. RS4
RS4 refers to starches that don't exist in nature and are chemically altered.
