Resistant Starch Update: Day 23

Today is day 23 of my resistant starch experiment.  4 tbsp a day in 4oz goat kefir with all 3 SBOs.  So simple but so effective.
This is the single most powerful intervention I’ve ever experienced.  My IBS-D symptoms have vanished without a trace.  The freedom I now have to eat a variety of healthful foods is powerfully liberating.  For months, maybe a full year, I wasn’t able to get the veggie intake that I wanted.
My health practitioner is not quite sure what to make of it.  At first she thought the resistant starch was “gumming up the works.”  At week 3 see seems more willing to accept that it’s working.  I have such an increased feeling of well-being that I have little doubt it is working. Last week I pulled out the motorcycle for a full commute in San Francisco traffic: that only happens when I’m feeling my best.
I do think some variety would be best though and will move towards that soon.  Increased GI resiliency had already allowed me to drastically increase the variety of different foods that I’m able to consume.  I even at a catered Thai curry at work last week – much to the surprise of my coworkers.
A few days ago I took the RS dose at night and finally remembered a dream for the first time in too long.  Recovering my ability to remember dreams could be a great indicator of health.
I’m tracking weight, FBG and occasional food intake to share later.  More excitingly, I should get the results of a full metametrix GI panel next week.
Here’s a days worth of meals.  This many carbs would have wrecked my digestion 3 weeks ago:
  • butter and mct in coffee
  • 2 ground beef sliders on gluten-free bread, cole slaw, few tater tots
  • frozen yogurt with blackberries and a few m&ms-corn tortilla chips (3-4 servings), salsa, cheese
  • 1 tbsp honey and a date
  • goat kefir, goat yogurt, 4T potato starch blended into 1/2 frozen banana
