    Wise words. With my IBS-C, even a full tsp seems to block me up. Start low, go slow, watch for adjustment signs (you might get gas), and wait for that to subside before moving on to another dose. Even with just 1/2 tsp, I have improved sleep.

    This has reminded me to get my husband to try it (for sleep), though I'm not sure if it'll be as effective since he doesn't eat paleo/primal. I'll probably try him at 1 tsp.

    Dear gods start slow. 1/2 tsp a day for first week then double it for the next week up to a max of 4 tblspoons a day. if you jump in at 2 to 4 tblsp a day you will want to die and the fartage will be horrible. Worse than horrible. A disaster. It will be your own personal Ragnarok.

    That being said it has hugely improved my carb tolerance and sleep and dreams. I have had such great dreams. frequently deeply xrated dreams. I wake up better and super horny. YMMV of course.

    However I cant stress the fartage problems enough. go slow.

    The above is funny and true.
    Every night this week I have been at play auditions. Lets just say the gas issue led to some near mortifying moments of high comedic theater.

    Nameless and others,
    I found the PS last night, yay!
    Question, I read what you wrote, nameless wonder, about only doing 1/2 tsp as it can stop you (personally) up. I am in a similar situation as you and finally seeing great improvements on the W30 AIP/foodmap (I finally merged both lists making a simple diet adding bone broth and mostly all cooked foods except my cultured veggies) and am doing way better in that dept. I am wondering if staring the PS now would mess with things or if it's a good time?
    Any advise is appreciated!
    thx

    What about potatos? My understanding is, you cook the potato, freeze it, and then cook it again? Is that correct?

    If you're doing well with the W30 AIP/FODMAP thing, I don't see any harm in experimenting with a little potato starch too as long as you are consistent with everything else.

    Cooked, cooled (refrigerated for at least 8 hrs, I think), then re-heated. You can eat them cooled, but re-heating yields even more resistant starch.

    Only from other users in the big RS thread. I think most said that it wasn't a problem for them. Some use plantain flour instead though. If you poke through the thread, there are suggestions for other sources of RS other than regular potatoes.
