    I suspect you could do all sorts of hacks using various starchy foods. I've just mainly focused on potatoes because of all the history and because I really like potatoes. I think where the potato...

    Insulin sensitivity is the most repeatable aspect of using RS. It's not immediate, and relies more on improving overall gut health and gut flora. From the paper I linked above:

    After 3 years or so playing with this stuff, I will agree with Neck and PKJ. It's not for everyone. Most people get gas if they take much over 2TBS/day. I think with any fiber source, your sweet...

    Yep. And telling people they can get 100% of their required fiber intake from a spoonful or two of cheap potato starch is like a poke in the eye to Big Food and Big Supplement.
