    Hmm. Never thought of that. So that would be #5 on my list of possibilities. Thanks. I'm hoping this is not due to the potato starch. I was pretty excited about the latter!!

    THAT is very good information to know, tatertot. Thanks for that.

    grapes, I am also hypothyroid. I went pretty severely hypo about eight years ago thanks to a doctor who thought that an active thyroid hormone level 0.1 above the bottom of the range was "normal" and kept insisting I was eating too much and not exercising enough. I finally had to fire her and go to a naturopath to get straightened out. I have been on full thyroid replacement since then and have gotten all of my medical issues straightened out--but I am 20 pounds overweight and cannot get that weight to budge no matter what I do. I have been wheat-free and Paleo for almost three years now. We raise and preserve our own food (garden, chickens, and pigs). I have said many times to my naturopath that I ought to weight much less than I do given the way we eat. We have tried various things to no avail. (This is an issue for me because I NEVER in my life had a weight problem until I became hypo and gained 30 pounds.)

    I love Paleo but I have really missed potatoes and beans and rice, so I am excited about trying RS. Yesterday was my first dose of potato starch. We'll see how it goes.

    Very little, but some. Though probably only RS 2 in raw carrots. It's such a small amount, I doubt if you could retrograde any RS3 by cooking and cooling.
    Let those who have dyspepsia—and that means a multitude of ills which the American people in their luxurious habits are fast bringing upon themselves—try for a time the potato diet. We have tried it not for months, but a few days at a time—long enough to satisfy us of its good effects. Newspaper article from 1849

    Grapes, another possibility to add to your list... maybe you have a sinus infection? The "movement" headaches and fatigue are prime symptoms for me when I have a sinus infection.

    I had my second cup..........er, I mean teaspoon........... of Potato starch this morning at breakfast.

    I must admit - I feel a little more stuffed than usual after just a teaspoon last night and one this morning.

    Could it be the power of suggestion? I guess so.......but so far I think I'll not add another teaspoon this evening.

    My tummy don't feel so hot! :-0

    I will, of course, continue on with a teaspoon a day for a while to see how it goes. No probiotic supplements here. But I do eat fermented foods, also had some not so completely washed raw organic turnips on Sunday, etc. etc. so I'm confident that I'll adapt with time.

    Very interesting so far.

    I know some people here like to get their probiotics by way of fermented foods. Does anyone have a easy place to start for someone who has never attempted it?

    I agree with feeling stuffed recently. I've been toying with the idea of going down to 2 meals instead of 3 a day, or somehow making some kind of cut. It's absolutely not the power of suggestion with me. The last few days I've been feeling uncomfortably full on food quantities that normally would have left me wanting more.
    That is a good thing, as I do need to lose some weight.

    I bought some BRM potato starch a few days ago and have started on 1/2 tsp night and morning, up to 1 tsp now. Not much gas so far, although tummy feels kind of tender/raw. added a probiotic yesterday which gave mild runs. Also seem to be getting more sugar, as is bad food doughnut cravings, any correlation? Also added some GT Kombucha.

    Fermenting foods is as easy as falling off a log, mostly. There are some things to watch out for, but we ferment a lot of stuff here, especially kombucha, sauerkraut and pickles.
