I raised my PS dose to 3 tbsp since I hadn't had any gas issues for a week. I am taking it at night with Prescript Assist, which is a new probiotic for me. My body is reacting as expected to the new probiotic with cramping and loose stools, but it is no big deal and will stop soon.
I am on day 12 of the Perfect Health diet. (A higher carb and RS Paleo program)
I am experiencing increased energy, improved mood and have broken through a 2 year plateau in weightloss.
So far my RS experiment is a success.
I ate some steamed waxy potatoes (purple Peruvians and yukon gold) with white beans and ham, cooled by some added 1 TBS mung bean starch in water and buttermilk, and shortly thereafter started feeling very warm. My oral temp hit 99.1, then 99.3, then 99.4, which is the maximum it reaches after mung bean starch consumption, then it dropped back down a bit to 99.2, 99.3, 99.2, ... The effect seems to be too quick for RS to account for it. Fair warning, though that my BG does tend to go up some (not to bad levels) with mung bean starch, and axillary temp. would have been a more reliable measure.
My guess for primary cause would be the digestible portion of the mung bean starch, though it doesn't always raise my temp that high (probably depending on where my temp. started at beforehand, which I didn't check this time). There were multiple variables, but does anyone know of a possible reason for why the digestible portion of mung bean starch might be particularly adept at raising body temp.?

Anybody have negative mental health impacts when supplementing with RS? I recently quit after trying 2 tbsp of potato starch at bedtime for the last couple weeks due to my bruxism (teeth clenching) becoming too painful.
Now that I've been off it for a while I can see it was the RS causing me to feel depressed and lethargic. Anyone else relate?
It's fascinating to see how much of a role the gut plays on sleep/mood etc.
Sorry if I'm bringing up an old topic. I tried to read through the whole thread but it was too long and I couldn't figure how to search it.
Yummy! Thanks for sharing! I'd love to try this too!
Is it enjoyed hot or cold?
Any recipes/ideas for mung bean noodles?
Hmm, do I see right, that tapioca pearls like in bubble tea are safe starch too? If so, one could made own bubble tea with healthy stuff and drink them. (I thought about maybe mixing in coconut milk or yogurt and some nice taste, like chocolate, or doing something with fruit.)
Hmm mung bean noodles? Like you mean noodles made out of mung beans? Never heard that one. I think you are asking mung beans in noodles? You eat legumes?
