My roommate keeps on snacking. She's eating lots of vegetables but gives up eating rice. How can I help her to practise a healthy diet? She's 19.
Here's an idea: I'm glad you care. Nobody likes to be told what to do, especially when you're almost grown up. Actually, I'm glad she's doing vegetables -- many folks don't. Rice isn't essential and neither is the traditional 3 meals per day. If she's becoming obese she probably would like a good model. The best you can do is invite her to eat out with you and offer her / suggest healthy stuff. ...Read more
A lot of diets for weight loss recommend cutting down on rice completely. Is this a fair recommendation and what in rice makes it a bad diet food?
Rice for Dinner: Save the rice for the last meal of the day. Both white and brown rice have a high enough glycemic index to raise your blood sugar in the first hour after eating, then cause Insulin release which lowers your blood sugar in the second hour after eating. This makes you hungrier than you were when you started! So save the rice for a meal within 2 hours of when you will be asleep and can't snack! ...Read more

I had highly low diet from 30 days (only fruits and some rice (veg)).but again I got pancreatitis with high amylase 1100 with bearable amount pain! Ca?
Which type? Yes, but..: There is not just one "brown rice diet." I do not advise a diet of only brown rice and water. This will result in toxins coming out of your fat and brown rice does not give enough nutritional support to help our body to process these toxins. A brown rice diet with additional organic fruits & vegetables is much healthier, but I do not advise it primarily for weight loss- please see comment for more:. ...Read more
Doesn't fill you up: If you are on a restricted calorie diet, other foods will help you feel full with a lot less calories.

Whole fresh fruit and vegetables offer a lot more nutritional value and are more slowly digested. ...Read more
Can I use 1 spoon of rice vinegar (ingredients: water, ethanol, rice)/day in my diet when I am on accutane?
What's really in it?: It's almost certain you signed an agreement, when you started on accutane, not to drink alcohol. Keeping a promise is a matter of principle. If the "rice vinegar" is a concoction that someone makes from real ethanol as a folk medicine, you're breaking a promise. However, most "rice vinegar" has the ethanol oxidized to acetic acid. That's harmless flavor, though there's probably no health benefit. ...Read more
