No biomagic to report yet but I gotta confess PS in sour cream veggie dip and coco/choco pudding is pretty painless delivery.

I think the gas would be less obnoxious if I wasn't eating so much kimchi. But I have a fresh bucket of it, and what a shame not to consume mass quantities.

My update this week.
I'm on 1/2 tbsp PS with water down the hatch , with a probiotic every night .
Sauerkraut about 400grams a week, still getting RS from my carbs rice & potatoes but do miss the fresh taste of potatoes or rice from the oven or cooker, but it does save me time when prepping my meals.
So, sleep feeling deeper, have noticed a few more spots appear on my face ?? Gas has gone down a little but worst in early morning but are potent . My digestive system seems to be working much more efficient , stools are more formed frequent and darker.

I have re-introduced PS with kefir, but in smaller amounts. 3 teaspoons in kefir three times per day - no distress with wind (gas) this time! But - does the potato starch and kefir need to be taken (that makes it sound like a medicine - I mean, of course, eaten) an hour or so before a meal, in hopes that it has exited the stomach, or does it not really matter if it is immediately followed by a meal?
The results on sleep are spectacular. I have always been a very poor sleeper and I am now getting pretty well 8 hours instead of 3 or 4 hours, several hours awake, perhaps another hour later and feeling tired a lot. Brilliant!

I do have some potatoes cooked, cooled and either eaten as potato salad or fried in beef fat until crisp (yum!), but I eat potatoes and rice mainly because I like them and rely on cold hummus, raw bananas, cooked beans etc for RS to go with the potato starch. I can't face trying to optimise EVERYTHING I eat - they are still delicious and nutritious!

I started my potato starch supplementing last night! I'm going to take 1 tsp in the morning & evening. I'm also taking Saccharomyces boulardii (Jarrow Forumulas) in the AM, as it was recommended by someone else here to treat yeast infections. If it helps, I may move on to another probiotic later. Not sure if I should take it twice a day though.
The starch is pretty tasteless, but I mixed into egg nog last night and a protein shake this morning.

For anyone in the UK, Infinity Foods have just confirmed to me that their potato flour is made from RAW potato. It is available from many health food shops.....

Great news! I eat plenty of butter and don't shy away from some good, raw, local honey either. Sometimes as a snack I'll cut a slice of salted kerrygold and top with honey. Good stuff. And butyric acid rich!

I get so frustrated by conflicting information. The more I read up on psyllium seed powder, the better it sounded. I was about ready to pull the trigger. But I ended up going with the psyllium hull powder that Dr. BG recommends. I'm already getting some with my morning PS dose from a supplement called GI Fortify, so I'll use the straight psyllium hull powder with my evening dose. It does make sense that it helps the RS travel further down the intestines.

Odd occurrence - curious if happened to anyone else or the reason why.
Normally a half hour after a 1 - 1.5 tablespoons of PS in Kefir I have a gas buildup. Not a major deal, you can set your watch to it. Yesterday I forgot to take my Vit C (ascorbic acid powder) so I mixed it into the Kefir/PS. This delayed the normal gas for several hours.
Am I onto a new scientific discovery?
