It’s only going to get worse and worse for the militant LCers. In fact, I’m going to end up being a better friend to diabetics than all LC doctors worldwide, put together. And, it’s cheap & easy.
I love shit like this. I had a sense way back, when “Tatertot” Tim approached me. Knowing a bit of his background and current situation, I knew in my heart that he was totally sincere and had good reason to be. Arguably the best bet I’ve ever made in the health realm.
Here’s Glen’s comment.
I’m rather late to this party … but thought I’d also add a “Type II-approved” stamp on the resistant starch idea…
I’m not just very Type II (Fasting BG and original A1c at time of diagnosis were both more than DOUBLE where they diagnose you at) … I’m also what some call “LADA” (Latent Auto-Immune Diabetes in Adults) which means I have the insulin-resistance of a Type II combined with a busted-arse pancreas that produces VERY little insulin (like a Type I) …
I haven’t tested everything – but I tested RS with cold potato salad. Amazing results…
Half of one medium baked potato (generously covered in butter, cheese, sour cream and bacon) will normally raise my BG into artery-damaging areas – around 160 mg/dl (8.8 mmol/L for those outside of the USA).
But an entire CUP AND A HALF of cold potato salad (same batch of potatoes, chilled 48 hours and cut into a salad) and my blood glucose didn’t rise above 125 mg/dl (6.9 mmol/L) in four hours of repeated testing.
Any diabetic, regardless of Type I/II/LADA should test these a few times to confirm if one or more of these RS foods is something you can add to your diet, because it sure offers a few more meal options if it works for you like it worked for me.
… and thanks Richard for pointing this out!
Read it and weep, LC Militia. Where is your honesty and integrity? The research began about 30 years ago. About 5 years ago, we got a bunch of poo pooing from the LC-Paleo-sphere. A shame. And to this day, to my knowledge, not even one single prominent LCish advocate has even suggested taking a closer look at Resistant Starch, all while lives are in the balance.
Double shame. On. You.
