Dr Chris van Tulleken:
[in our study] We found something that we really didn't expect - cooking, cooling and then reheating pasta had an even more dramatic effect. Or, to be precise, an even smaller effect on blood glucose spiking -- In fact, it reduced the rise in blood glucose by a further 50%.

This certainly suggests that reheating the pasta made it into an even more "resistant starch". It's an extraordinary result and one never measured before.

Denise is now going to continue her research - funded by Diabetes UK - looking at whether, even without other dietary modifications, adding resistant starch to the diet can improve some of the blood results associated with diabetes.
Not going to try pasta, but I did order some pure potato starch to see if it helps with some GI issues like constipation

There are many other benefits claimed as well, common on the internet for many things though:

May be something to all the RS hype. Tried some baked plantain chips late last night, overslept for once, had dreams so real I could direct or control them just the way I wanted -- strange indeed. Never happened before. The dreams were derived mostly from things that happened that day, and every detail remembered still.

"Total Recall" -- LOL

Strange reading this, as I had a few dream states where I knew I was awake, but my dreams continued, and like you experienced, I had some control, and I knew I was controlling it, to my script. It happened more than once, and always in the morning when I woke up.

I've got to try some plantain chips.

One think I learned from Dr. Michael Ruscio's Healthy Gut, Healthy You, which is all about the gut microbiome, is that if you have other health problems, maybe you should avoid prebiotics, as you could have SIBO (small intestine bacteria overgrowth) - that this could exasperate the situation.

As a child I could control my dreams... otherwise, our brain is supposed to be reprocessing the days activities over and over, as it truncates the events and puts it into memory. This is why sleep is vital to learning. The night is a rehash of what kids learned during the day.

I don't trust these resistant starches. Why not just eat fermentable fibers?

Tried some fried plantain chips - I like them! I figured 18g of carbs for 1 oz, since I read

4-ounce bag means you take in more than 600 calories, 72 grams of carbohydrates

That sounds high, a whole one is ~42g

Baked mine: coat diagonal slices with olive or coconut oil, season if desired, then bake on a cookie sheet ~350*F -- 15 minutes on a side till browned
Can be stored in the fridge or eaten warm.

Storebought chips are likely made with vegetable oils and or ...

I like 42g better!

I used this lady's recipe. Used the green plantains from the market, cooked in olive oil.

How to Make Crispy Plantain Chips

...5 min warm water soak, peal
...takes a couple of seconds to fry, as long as oil is heated
...salt while hot

I had heard potatoes and pasta have a lower GI when cooked and cooled.

I highly highly recommend tiger nuts (they aren't actually a nut, but a tuber that was eaten during Paleolithic period. An ounce has 120 calories with 10g of fiber and 9 net carbs. An ounce will clear you out the next morning!
Typically i need one unit of insulin for 9 carbs, but with these i never had any additional dose. Maybe it's the resistant starch effect?
The brand i get is in a white bag at whole foods- gemini.

Going from less ketogenic to more, I get a similar effect, more dreams or at least remembered dreams.

Never heard of "Tiger Nuts" ... yet another health hack to investigate , sheesh
Dr Axe didn't exactly give em the axe either. More RS plus increased Testosterone:

Trying too many interventions at once -- bad science, but nothing else to do in the Summers down here
