Hi andredenito, glad you're trying the glutinous rice smile Hope it works for you ok. Really good to get some constructive feedback - both positive and negative.

Wow, I'm really fascinated to see more people getting the same health issues I have been battling with. First proctitis, and now dehydration at night. OK here is some stuff from my notes:

-- Worsens my dehydration at night: --
*** Tired / Going to sleep too late. Weakens immune system / liver?
*** preservatives. 220 & maybe Benzoates too. Herx reaction? (death of mould/fungus)
*** alcohol /preservative 220/yeast (champagne & sweet wines are high in preservatives). worse in 30-60min
** Yeast products
** Vinegar (except ACV?)
?? Cheese
?? Dairy - yoghurt, cream, cheese

So far working out things that help have been less clear-cut. I tried large doses of Lufenuron and that seemed to help, which implies a fungal issue. Also, foods that had a laxative effect seemed to help too.

But also have had at least one time where I ate very large amounts of salmon belly and felt better, this and the possible cheese/dairy issue implicate Omega6/Omega3 issue, similar with what Dragon pointed out re EFAs. Is it a result of being in fat burning mode I wonder? But then, eating amylopectin starch didn't help...

Hey dlee,
The link on resistant starch is very interesting smile

I read in one of the pages (maybe one that you posted) that Konyaku noodle has huge amounts of resistant starch. I need to check up on whether that is true.. BUT the good part is that I don't react to it. The odd thing is it doesn't react to iodine, so that is why I am wondering about whether it really does have resistant starch or not.

Hi Zark,

You might want to check out http://freetheanimal.com as well. A lot of people experimenting there with RS.

So far I've stuck to Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch, cooked and cooled Potatoes, and Green Bananas. I'm on NSAID's however I've noticed no noticeable increase in inflammation and massively improved sleep and bowel motions. These things improved almost immediately. I'm cycling NSAID's on and off whereas previously I just took 1 per day. I want to get off them.

Sleep quality is unbelievable. I've spent 12 years sleeping badly due to AS pain and the last 2 years sleeping badly (difficulty getting to sleep, sleeping lightly, waking up 5 - 6 times per night) possibly due to very low carb since going on no the no starch diet 2 years ago (also no dairy, low sugar/fruit) which I suspect boosted cortisol hormone overnight as a result when it should be at its lowest.

I look forward to going to sleep now. I'm out within 5 minutes usually and sleep is so much deeper. I wake maybe once per night and go right back to sleep. However the sleep quality is sooo much better. The other morning I woke up and had no clue as to where I was (I was in my own bed).

I tried a bit of rice that had been cooled for 24 hours as well the other night. It was Basmati which is supposed to be one of worst for AS I read (on one of your posts actually) but it seemed ok to me in a small dose.

I take 4 tablespoons of the Potato Starch a day (2 with evening meal and 2 about an hour before bed). I now eat Potato (cooked and cooled for 24 hours then reheated in duck fat) 3 times per week (post workout meals). And now trying Rice as well. Noodles is definitely on my list for a little further down the track.

For me, adding the Potato Starch powder was an exciting experiment which fixed sleep and BM's and gave me confidence to trying adding back in Potatoes, Green Bananas & Rice. I added these foods back in because recently....funnily enough I had an urge to eat them anyhow after not having any for 2 and a bit years, and I also liked the idea of a bit of variety for the colonization of any beneficial gut bacteria.

I feel much better as a result.

Hey dlee, I'm very interested in this. Maybe it needs its own thread though.

Here is the guy that mentioned Konjac: http://eatingoffthefoodgrid.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/resistant-starch-and-sibo.html
He said "konjac is basically super-concentrated RS." and this is what Konyaku noodle / Shiritake noodle is made from. I don't react! No pain at all smile

Apparently Konjak is not a RS but similar to it and seems to have the same benefits. There is a little bit on it in the article below about 2 thirds down.
