    Specifically, eliminating potatoes, bananas, bread, grains, and lentils removes almost entirely all sources of "resistant starch" from our lives. I agree it's good to limit the grains, but without the resistant starch, we may be causing harm to our intestines.

    Please click: Resistant starch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The big tie-in with resistant starch and intestinal health is butyrate, Butyrate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Potatoes are probably one of the best sources of butyrate we can feed to our intestinal tenants. It is certainly a convincing argument for at least adding potatoes into my diet on a regular basis.

    Look at the two links I provided and then Google "Potato Butyrate" or similar search terms.
    So, since green peas have 4.0 g of RS per cup, do you think we could add those to the potatoes without any detriments?

      Green peas have a lot of sugar, but if you just ate a few peas alongside piles of potatoes, it would be fine. I actually think you could eat just about anything you wanted to on the potato diet as long as the calories are minimal, like under 5% of total for the day.

        I find your lack of bacon disturbing.
