i have 1 green banana in the morning and 1 cold potato or sweet potato at night.
How do you eat this? (because I can not imagine eating it raw, it is essentially tasteless and plantain's astringent like feeling on my tongue bothers me.)
What is Bubbies? Is it kind of sauerkraut or something?
Whats the deal with potato starch or pasta should be cold for resistant starch benefit? What happens if you eat warm/hot pasta, for example (i.e. how you do not get resistant starch benefit, by just being warm/hot)?
What are you using as iodine supplement?
The image that you have in your original post where the guy says, grains and legumes are a big no no. I am not too sure if I agree with him on legumes. Does he give any solid reason for it?
Your ex is still driving you nuts? She must have a lot of time at her hands. Can't you get a restraining order against both of them, so that you don't have to pull firearm out at all (and there will be a record of threatening).
BTW, I read Gutbliss. Good book but I did not feel like I learned anything new from the book. I knew almost everything. Just reading the details more helps brushing up the memory. I strongly felt her endocrine system part is weak. She talks about
women gut issues and hormones. I don't agree with a lot of things that she said in that chapter.
I have been taking butyrate 3X a day. Do not see any external benefits, except a lot of tooting, but I hope its working (along with psyllium seed powder).Hi DeltaForce,
1) Bubbies is a famous sauerkraut brand sold @ organic food stores. They sell fermented pickles as well. I think it's generally considered one of the legitimate sauerkraut brands since most are without live cultures.
2) It's only considered a resistant starch if it bypasses digestion and goes to the large intestine. Cooked pasta and potatoes absorb in the small intestine, with some amount of resistant starch going to the colon. When these things cool down, there's a process called retrogradation
that increases the RS content. Raw potato starch (along with plantain flour) is categorized as RS2 while cooked and cooled potato starch is RS3. Generally RS2 is richer and a better source of RS than RS3.
3) I'm supplementing with potassium iodide
capsules. There doesn't seem to be an upper limit on it, and I think our diets (and soil quality) make most of us deficient in it anyways. Lugols iodine seems to be the gold standard, however, so I may just switch to that.
4) I think legumes are a gray area in the paleosphere. Paul Jaminet, the author of that diet, considers legumes as toxin-rich foods with the exception of peas and green beans. I really do think that it's an individual thing and there are some really good brands out there like Eden Navy Beans, which is soaked and organic. Here's what he said about
it:Most foods haven’t been thoroughly evaluated for toxins, so there’s some guesswork. But on a gross level, if you feed the beans (kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans, soybeans, you name it) raw to animals, they’ll get extremely sick or die. We list a bunch of examples in the book. Toxins include not only lectins but alpha amylase inhibitors, trypsin inhibitors, cyanogenic glycosides, and others. Cooking somewhat detoxifies them, but not entirely. Peanuts and peanut oil are also problematic. Some vetches cause irreversible paralysis from neurotoxins.
On the other hand, I’ve never heard of anyone, human or animal, dying from peas. We eat peas a lot, including snow peas and sugar snap peas. Likewise green beans, although much less often than peas.
So, yes, just like white rice is an exception to the “don’t eat grains” rule, peas are an exception to the “don’t eat legumes” rule.
5) I agree with you about
gutbliss. I would only recommend it to those who are newly diagnosed or those who want take a more integrative approach to tackling the disease. I certainly could have used the book when I was diagnosed 10 years ago - would have saved me a lot of time, money and suffering.
