I literally have almost no time to blog (I’ll blog about that later).
For a long while I’ve noted those who do an “experiment” with resistant starch, have any number of initial issues—mostly very low carbers—and proclaim to their audiences that it’s shit. So, go back to starving your carb-addicted gut. Now, I know why they do this: they’re dishonest, biased for a dying paradigm: low carb dieting. Simple. But being dishonest always fucking bites you in the ass.
…Anyway, I’ve admonished people for a while to dump the fucking glucose meter for a month, and get in some safe starches like cooked and cooled rice, beans, potatoes. It’s OK to reheat them, just do it gently; and no, I have no idea whether nuking fucks up RS3 retrograde, so don’t ask me because I don’t even have enough time to blog.
Now, whether Julie took my advice to not freak herself out daily and let things settle out I don’t know. What she did do is stay a course.
Marie, I can’t thank you enough for your ideas and encouragement. I did what you said and REALLY went slow. I became discouraged at about the 2 month mark in April because my blood sugars were going up a bit and my A1c went from 5.9 to 6.2 but I persevered. At that time, I was up to about 4 teaspoons. I started taking a SBO Probiotic (Primal Defense) plus mixing my PS/High Maize mixture in my home made sauerkraut. (I had previously been taking a non soil-based probiotic) I upped the dosage slowly to a current 3 TB.
Suddenly, about 2 weeks ago, my blood sugars dropped into the normal range. Even my fasting (which is usually pretty high at 120-130) was better, dropping into the low 100 to high 90s. My average daily before meals is in the 80s and after meals is in the 90s and 100s, dropping back to baseline within 2 hours.
I can not say how grateful I am to all of you for this. I still take Metformin but plan to wean off of that soon. I just may be able to say that I am no longer a diabetic! BTW…I now include starches and some sugars in my diet with no spikes! I do include a couple of other supplements in my regime. Alpha-lipoic acid, amla, Vit D, Vit K2, Magnesium. Vit B12. Selenium, and Iodine.
Please be aware. There are those out there who are firmly convinced that starving the other 90% of you—your trillions of gut microorganisms that outnumber your cells 10-1—is the sure path to health…and that any and every problem is the fact that you ate something that would feed them (carbohydrates).
Have a problem? Starve your microbiome MORE!
Alright, since I have no time to blog I’ll end this, so that I can compose the post about just how and why I have no time to blog.
