Pretty sure there has to be starch. Some used to say artificial sweeteners caused an insulin spike, too, but I think that has been disproven.

There may be a Pavlovian insulin response, though, will have to read up on it. Did you know the pancreas secretes insulin on a rythmic 3-5 minute cycle 24/7 just to keep glucose stable.

Just wanted to say I reverted to Primal over the weekend and no gain of any of the weight I lost. Pretty damn happy with my tater experiment! Thanks Otzi

didn't hit the reply with quote:
"Hey man, didn't realise you were a member here, great to see you are. Your research is interesting. I found it a fascinating experiment.
And glad you dropped in here to clear things up. Got annoying when people were jumping in to attack Otzi, apparently for the hell of it."
I am, but I don't really get over here often. I just didn't want Otzi taking heat over posting. It's been interesting to watch all the spin and you know what I think about "protein carb and fat" speak. There are some real lessons here besides a hack. Contrary to popular opinion, I didn't do this because if chris voight, but certainly looked into what he's done. I do know John McDougall and he's really had some fantastic results with people (not all that follow him), but I too don't want to spend time in the ideology of vegan (or paleo for that matter).
There is way more to what is going on that just a "hack." I think a lot of people are mistaken with the current paradigm of food, but I am vetting my thoughts through the science community at the moment and collecting more data. I think both groups (vegan and paleo) are off the mark a bit for different reasons, but either way can be effective losing weight. That's A mission, not THE mission for me.
I guess that makes me unpopular to both, or palatable to both - I guess it depends on what people think my motives are. I can say that I am trying to understand the obesity pandemic and put aside my own diagnosis bias, but with all the opinions out there, it's often ignored.
I'm not around frequently, but if there's something important, feel free to let me know. I will **try** to check back every now and then.
Thanks for staying open minded and PLEASE fill out data sheets when you test. I appreciate all I can get.

This is interesting...I have to assume that those who get positive results with this plan have no AI issues....for me two servings of potatos will start the joint pains, etc.
ETA: WTF is up with the MOAR thing.......it`s kinda stupid. Spell properly, it helps project the image thst you have a functioning cerebral cortex.
