It is really well studied actually and every diabetic should know this!

    Thanks for the info dkJames! I have looked into RS too much, but I believe there's something to it. Starch doesn't appear to be my friend, but I can eat sushi just fine, and I hypothesised it's cos' of the RS aspect.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Yes, cooked and cooled rice has more RS but from what I read, it depends on the rice type and cooking method ... it almost impossible to easily measure how much RS a food contain. Buckwheat flour also has RS. The type you find in raw food is RS2. The cooked and cooled one is RS3 (retrograded RS2). You have quite less RS3 but if you keep cooking and cooling some potatoes or rice, you slowly increase the amount of RS3. I mean: raw food is very often unpalatable and even toxic so RS3 is maybe the safest thing to eat (apart from green bananas / plantains high in RS2).

    I recognize that in theory starch and sugar are digested the same. But we're not talking tiny servings of fruit vs large portions of potato. It was sometimes quite a lot of fruit (and ice cream). I intend to explore this further in the future.

    Just eat some raw potatoes.

    Try adaptogens. I haven't had trouble sleeping since I started taking rhodiola! But my problem is different from yours. My problem is that I can't fall asleep sometimes. I don't usually wake up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep. However, that has happened to me in the past, usually when I'm really anxious (like the night before a law-school exam during my first semester in law school--I think it was the pressure of knowing that your entire grade is going to be determined by the one exam). I bet adaptogens would help with that too.

    Congrats on your improved sleep. Just by curiosity, what kind of noodles were they ? rice ? shirataki ? glass noodles ?
