Resistance Starch

Bifidobacteria like resistant starch (RS),
so when we eat resistant starch, 
we grow more bifidobacteria.  
So what is so special about bifidobacteria? 
Well, they convert RS into a keytones and 
short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate
It is also suggested that these seeded bacteria 
also change other carbohydrates into similar, 
increasing the fat to carbohydrate ratio of the diet. 
The bacteria eat the glucose and convert it into fat, 
reducing the need for insulin. 
OK, if you's say so.

But I can see that if we increase the amount of any 
bacteria by supplying a steady source of their preferred food, 
the relative amount of them will increase.
So N=1 is the only way to test.
Other N=1 seem to indicate success. 
Perhaps a shake of Bob's Red Mills potato starch on things.

Will that reduce hunger? Expect nothing with regard to cravings.

But what do I know?
Be well, eat real food, breath deeply,
smile easily, and enjoy what life has to offer.

  1. Let us know how the RS works. Good luck. N=1 indeed. Karen P
