What does that mean and how do you do it?

Cook them, cool them, refrigerate them them for 24 hours, don't get them too hot when you warm them back up. The cooling lets the starch become resistant. Warming them back up can undo that if too much. I eat them barely above ambient. Usually melt butter and pour over them. I read about it on a site called FreeTheAnimal. We are on the road, or I'd find and post the site.

An 88 (4.9) this morning.

100 today

I've read about resistant starches in potatoes and other foods. I concluded the benefit is feeding gut bacteria from the non-digestible fiber. As previously thought, the greater portion of the starch is still digested and will or can cause an insulin response and rise in BG.

Cold potato salad, by definition should have resistant starch if eaten cold. I ate a bunch as it has a lot of fat from egg and mayo, thinking I'd be safe. It gave me a high BG spike and I was pretty disappointed. I read all I could find and concluded a small portion of the starch becomes non-digestible, called resistant, the rest is still a high carb insulin response provoking food.

I'm going off memory, please correct me if I'm wrong.

124 at first, up to 133 before breakfast (omelet with provolone, same as yesterday) 131 at 1 hr PP. Talked to a machine at the doc's yesterday, didn't get a call back so will try again as soon as I'm finished reading new posts here.
@mbuster: Can they be used in recipes? I guess if everything else was cooked and just stirred the beans in off heat?
@bignick: My understanding is that raw potatoes have resistant starch but cooking changes it. I don't think cooling would reverse it. Potato Salad spiked me big time, eaten cold. Carol Deppe in her book "The Resilient Gardener" says that raw potatoes are not food for people, pigs or poultry implying they are not digestible to us. Ruminants, however, can digest them.

I assume that they can be added back to something else if their temperature is not elevated. Not everything starchy can be done, they have a list on one of their blogs. The cooling process is key, just being cold doesn't do it. Overheating will undo it. They say new potatoes can be done, I haven't been lucky with them.

102 (5.7) this morning. Still not quite over the UTI and still riding the bumpy road. Example, 88 before bed last night.
Still looking like a very good for rain this weekend. Depending on who you look at anywhere from a 50% to 80% chance of rain.

74 (4.09) this overcast morning, 78 (4.3) at bedtime last night.

I tried the retrograded potatoes early on in my diabetic journey. I could only get by with a 1/2 cup serving w/out a spike. It was just too much work for too little reward. I use cauliflower now instead.

There should be a long thread here on retrograde or resistant starch Majoie, just do a search and one or the other should show up.
