I posted on another thread the difficult time I had with potato starch. However, I did want to make one comment on this thread. While I was consuming potato starch, I seemed to have very little appetite for sweets. For me that is a huge benefit, and I would like to be able to get to the point that I could consume some potato starch for that reason alone.Norm RobillardKeymasterFebruary 28, 2014 at 7:41 pmPost count: 441
Interesting Laura. I hadn’t heard that before. How much were you taking and for how long? Any change in weight?Laura P.ParticipantMarch 1, 2014 at 12:51 amPost count: 8
I posted more about my experience in the challenges thread. I started with just 1 TBS per day and worked up to 4 TBS per day fairly quickly. I tried for 2 weeks, but I had diarrhea pretty much the whole time and had to quit. No, I did not lose any weight, which was sort of surprising. I was not replacing sweets with something else, other than potato starch. It was nice to have control over my sweet tooth, but I couldn’t take the diarrhea which was getting worse.Norm RobillardKeymasterMarch 1, 2014 at 1:08 amPost count: 441
I see. I’m not surprised Laura. I talked about RS during an interview today on Paleo Magazine – it won’t be out for weeks, but it was good to start this discussion, especially given some of the claims concerning RS and digestive issues. I don’t think it will be a slam dunk by any means. I’ll have a look at your other post.
