BTW, just wanted to thank bearsmom for your advice. Have looked at gutsense. am using my own version of the morning drink they sell (calcium citrate, magnesium citrate and potassium citrate) initially this really guaranteed a daily great quality BM. I have since been ill an d was having rather loose daily BMs, sometimes just with water and lemon juice and sometimes need this mix still.
It seems to work. so Thanks.cmcukParticipantJanuary 12, 2015 at 8:36 pmPost count: 40
for those in Europe, have just found the following site
I am thinking I can get a bit of a chocolate fix this way – without having to make my own as I have been doing (which as a working mum I have little time to do & which to be honest no one else in my family thinks are nice!). (also, chocmama (on facebook) in Wales does small batches using erythritol.
Fructose free ketchup for my potato wedges too! yes! (and a glucose based elderflower syrup for my gin and soda water……)
I am ordering stuff and will let you know my verdict!cmcukParticipantNovember 17, 2014 at 5:17 pmPost count: 40
Just looking at the discussion between yourself Norm & Jaeme in March this year – did so, as have just come across revital (https://www.revital.co.uk/-Allergy_Research_Cellulose_Powder)
which claims not to feed unhealthy bacteria. I get all the stuff about low fibre may not be the problem we have been led to believe, but my own experience tells me that a bit more fibre is helpful (e.g. when I use the raw beets).
Just wondering about people’s thoughts on this?

have been explring the david gillespie no sugar recipe book. The flourless chocolate tart is lovely and quite low FP! yey!
did wnat to ask though – can’t see an FP for plain white flour (may be that I don’t know how to read the types of names for flour in the US). Any information gratefully recieved (even if it turns out I am just being a bit dense!)
ThankscmcukParticipantOctober 11, 2014 at 9:14 amPost count: 40
Just thought I would pop this down. tea made with fenugreek seeds seems to be helping me at the moment. I drink at might and in the morning. Its not a laxative in intself, but seems to keep things going enough that with everything else – magneiusm, water and exercise, I am not having to use actual senna.
worth a try?
I think it may form a mucilage – would this mean it has FP’s? hope not!cmcukParticipantOctober 6, 2014 at 4:45 pmPost count: 40
the frozen ginger I keep in the freezer (obviously) tells me if ahs about 20 carbs per 100 (actually I think 18 + 2 fibre). so I think of it as 2FP’s per 10g? (of course it could be lower if it has a GI that is high but I tend to be conservative about these things. Ginseng I do not know about. Hope that helpscmcukParticipantSeptember 25, 2014 at 9:22 pmPost count: 40
could I ust check on something here – I eat lots of jasmine rice – though usuallly as part of a meal and with fat/oil melted through (and often salad dressing, as vinegar supposedly changes GI). I am also often eating it with protein. Am doing Ok LPR wise, but have lost alot of weight and really need the rice to keep my carb intake up and avoid ketosis (also for enough calories as I do a fair bit of exercise). How much should I worry about this in terms of blood sugar & type II diabetes, do you know or have any advice? (am definitely on the thin side – so not at risk from that side of things)

they call LPR silent reflux – I have had many symptoms (not this one) over the years with mouth, nose and ears and think many of them are related to my LPR. sounds to me like this could well be too. The FTD takes much longer to affect LPR type symptoms and so this maybe could continue even when other stuff has subsided?cmcukParticipantAugust 29, 2014 at 9:58 pmPost count: 40cmcukParticipantAugust 29, 2014 at 9:58 pmPost count: 40
BTW Sodium Alginate is an amylose carbohydrate – and so needs to be added in to your fP’s – do remember this – as I know personally, its easy to go over by missing these things (even if they are small amounts); if you are suing them regularly it all adds up!cmcukParticipantAugust 28, 2014 at 7:24 pmPost count: 40cmcukParticipantAugust 27, 2014 at 7:29 amPost count: 40cmcukParticipantAugust 26, 2014 at 10:40 amPost count: 40
Thanks for this. Very interesting – though have not worked out what it measn fro my eating habits yet!
Years ago when I got GI interested, I cam across a line of research and discussion (sue Holt & colleagues) that it should not be the GI, but the insulin response that we measure, as GI is seen as unhelpful in relation to the need for the body to produce insulin (with diabetes type two being related to insulin resistance). The researcher looking at this said that the II (I think they called it- Insulin index) did not map onto GI predictably (just as GI and glycemic load may vary with the mix of foods ingested (e.g. vinegar supposedly lowers GI I have read)). They now appear to be looking at satiety as well (e.g. http://www.mendosa.com/satiety.htm). Does anyone know of or have any thoughts on this?
