    @Nameless - I would recommend Resistant Starch | Free The Animal as a source of more research/information. Though, this thread also has a lot of good information.

    For a list of RS in food, see:

    http://freetheanimal.com/wp-content/...h-in-Foods.pdf

    Otherwise, the general newbie guideline seems to be start with a tablespoon of potato starch mixed with liquid once a day. After a week, you can slowly start increasing it. Though it seems like for most people, the benefits max out at 4 tablespoons or ~40g of RS.

    My results from last 2weeks , which I have cooked , fridge overnight then reheated my carbs( potatoes rice) is that an increase in wind , during night and day, smell is pretty foul but not that bothered , I work outside so can just pass them by .
    Don't really notice any other effects , sleeping more easier .

    I'd love to know the answer to this one. I really like frozen peas - especially with tuna, lemon juice, and cumin. I guess they would have to be eaten cold?

    I just jumped in tonight with white sorghum flour as a source of RS.

    Someone mentioned they make RS "cookies" (not cooked, I think it was potato starch, eggs, butter). I made my own tonight with sorghum flour, butte, and a little honey. It was to good. I ate way more than the recommended 1 TBS for starting out. I hope it doesn't make me explode!!

    Green sweet peas - poor source of RS, like none.

    Sorghum flour pretty good RS source, about the same as dried plantains (50% RS by weight) but less than potato starch.

    Wow , extreme gas . A little annoying and my room stinks !!!

    May have to do tsp at a time.

    How long till the gas slowly goes away ? If I gradually increase a tsp each week?

    Yeah, the farting goes away, though. Since I just used potatoes I have no idea how much RS I was getting, but my initial dose was about 1/2 a small potato daily. Took about a week, then when the gas went away, I upped it to a whole potato. Of course, I wasn't refrigerating - so whatever starch was making it through, I don't know.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I have in my kitchen tapioca starch, mung bean starch, glucomannan, and potato starch. Would it make sense to use a blend of those in making my cookie dough?
