Default sitting on my shelf

Based upon a suggestion from this board, I now have a 5 lb bag of Hi-Maize Resistant Starch sitting on my shelf. I think it was MCS who prompted me to get it. Anyone have any ideas on what the heck I should do with it?

Do a search of the forum for Hi-Maize Resistant Starch and probably the recipes he used it in will come up.

I'm laughing so hard because:

Back in the Spring, I also decided (MCS was definitely responsible) I must have some Hi-Maize Resistant Starch. Got it from Honeyville's when they were having one of their sales. But, I knew I didn't want that huge quantity to start, so talked a friend into going in with me. Don't ask me how I did this, I've no clue.

So - I get the goods, split the quantity and give it to her. This is 2 months later once back in CA. She vaguely remembered something about it and asked how she should use it. Told her I'd get back to her. Although she hasn't asked me again, I know the day is coming.

It's now close to 6 months later, and we each have 2.5 lbs of the stuff languishing in our respective pantries.

So yeah, Marty: what the heck should we do with it?

Haha! MCS is "liking" all the posts but is otherwise silent. Guess I could make a pancake and see if it spikes me

On the other hand, I made a pretty good batch of buns yesterday with NO almond flour! A little rubbery, but looks more like bread and has a somewhat crusty outside like real bread! You would have a hard time telling my hotdog bun from store bought.

I'm not too sure Marty wasn't just stirring it into a glass of water & drinking it! What say you, Sir Marty?!

Was taking care of my 16 mnth old grand daughter at the time.

To get started what I did was a large serving spoon mounded up in a warm glass of water, aprox 40grams. Stirred and let settle over night in frig. The RS will settle to the bottom the high octane stuff stays in solution. I would then decant the water as best as I could, fill it back up with more water, stir and drink it down. I did this 2 times a day for a couple of days then once a day for over a month.

This needs to come with a warning, if your digestion (bacteria) in your large intestine is incapable of handling this new food source your going to be spending a good deal of time in the small room. That problem eased up in about a week. Another aspect to keep in mind is if you are injecting insulin you most likely will have to adjust, reduce the amount, this may cause you to go low. I think its due to the rapid transit thru your digestion system, no time for absorption of glucose.

Myself I took the gastric distress as a positive sign I didn't have bacteria in my gut that was needed for proper digestion. My PP numbers became shorter, 1 hr to peak, 1.5-2.0 hrs back to baseline. Lost a good bit of abdominal fat in a short period of time as well.

New fiber bread, I ate a bratwurst in the one I cut open

You can see it's a bit more rubbery, but holds up to a sloppy sandwich or burger really well, and doesn't taste eggy at all. Note the "crust", this is a good thing.

Thanks, I'll see what happens.

Question though, you've posted lots of stuff in addition to this (liters of fish oil, lbs of GABA etc), but once you stop doing it the effects will revert soon enough. Are you still taking everything on a daily basis?
