    I saw maca powder at my local HF store yesterday, is that RS?

    I'm not sure if maca powder contains RS as sold, probably, not sure how much. Maca itself looks like an amazing plant and surely full of RS and other prebiotic fibers. It is probably super healthy, in fact. I'd say maca powder or maca flour would be a great addition to smoothies or even used in gluten free baking. Maca Wiki Article

    Smit - looks like you got it figured out. Hard to say exactly what level of RS you are getting, but very safe to say you are getting RS from the highest known sources, so you should be good!

    Got some potato starch from morrisons in Bradford for 59p, they also had plantain flour which I considered, and many other odd flours that I may well use at some point to experimental baking, but that's another story

    The experiment starts on Thursday, coz I'm away tomorrow night and can't be arsed taking it with me

    I'm new to this thread and its super long so maybe this was discussed before but why is lipid oxidation a good thing?

    lipid oxidation = beta oxidation = burning fat as fuel

    Thank you.

    Has anything been said about potatoes/rice that has been cooked then cooled then heated back up again? How does that affect the RS levels?

    I usually make a large batch of potatoes or rice and eat off of it all week...so is it better to reheat or eat it cold for maximum benefit?

    Hey Tim,

    Maybe you can or someone else out there can help me with this. I first commented a few pages back when someone posted about developing a rash and wondering if it was related to increases in histamine producing gut bacteria. Since then my rash (maybe eczema? don't know, never had it before) has exploded on my arms, abdomen, legs and behind the knees. Luckily it hasn't reached my face but I'm getting a little worried. Like I mentioned before, I have a problem with jumping in to things too quickly and I added several things around the same time which really mucks up trying to pinpoint anyone thing.

    The rash started slowly but steadily persisted. I'm wondering if it started around the time that I started adding the AOR Pro-3. However, I also added some novel (for me) prebiotic foods around the same time as well (dehydrated burdock, dandelion, maca and more recently jerusalem artichoke). More recently I started making my own kefir from grains and while I haven't consumed much directly (because kefir is so strong I have a pretty intense reaction to it) I have definitely come in contact while making and serving it to my family (I'll lick my finger if I get some on it or have a teaspoon to my RS drink). To complicate things further I had also started supplementing with MSM around the same time (I added this after reading some stuff over at Dr. BG's site but I have since stopped).

    Maybe this is a histamine situation, something to do with the accumulated effects? I've read that Lactobacillus, Clostridium and Streptococcus are histamine producing. Obviously, they are normal gut residents but maybe I'm just not ready to process the increase in histamine production (maybe I'm answering my own question)? My plan right now is to stop everything for a couple of days (even RS which I've been getting from Bob's PS and Berry Farm's Plantain flour). I'm afraid that the answer is going to be that I need to go much, much more slowly (my least favorite thing to do!). I'm pretty sure my bug numbers are low and some or several are absent entirely.

    I'm probably leaving out important details (I've also had an increase in brain fog and fatigue) but I think those are the relevant details. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I will probably post this over on Dr. BG's site as well.

    Thanks!

    JLowBug - You are into uncharted territory here. When you throw everything at a problem, without really knowing what the problem really is, it's hard to tell what's going on. You have the right idea--stop everything for a couple weeks and re-start in a controlled fashion.

    If I could recommend a path for you to take, it would be to ensure you eat a diet with ample potato/rice/beans cooked, cooled, and reheated (which just answered the question above yours!) to maximize RS, completely avoid wheat, vegetable oils, and any other known allergens, make sure you are exercising/walking, sleeping good, and not drinking alcohol to excess. Then after a couple weeks, assess your situation, consider some stool testing to look for known pathogens, maybe even get a good doc on board with you.

    THEN, start with probiotics and low level RS supplement if you want.

    Good luck!

    I tried a couple of potato days last week. Weight down just a bit, did it again this week, but I discovered a food sensitivity. Joint Soreness, tingling in the mouth eating potatoes. Abort.
    My energy on those 125 or more grams of carbs went through the roof. So after being mostly VLC for years, my goal is 80 - 100 grams of carbs per day, keeping fat a bit more in check. Love the energy.

    Notes I may point to:
    1) WARNING: beware of chronic very low carb diets, especially ones low in resistant starch and other Paleo/Primal prebiotics
    2) I try to do what works best for me, and often fail. YMMV. Don't imitate me--find what works for you. The only fact I know for certain is that of my ignorance. I知 not prescribing.
    3) It may aid discussion if neither of us tries to speak for the other

    Learning about resistant starch and potato hack, a bit late in the game I know. I tried potatoes only for 3 days last week, then weekend of eating out and red wine, then started potato hack again Monday. For reals this time! No weight loss yet, but I am feeling a little bloated. I have been having 2-3 Yukon gold or red potatoes, nuked with broth and water, 4 times a day. I will try to skip a meal when I am able, but I'm still hungry for 4. Also, just nuked taters for tomorrow. I will start eating cold for increased RS. Thank you tatertot and everyone else who posts here and at FTA! With all of this new-found reading material, how am I ever going to get any sleep!?

    And for all the tater haters, it's day 3 and I still love potatoes!
