Brown Rice And Diverticulosis
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
Good food: Brown rice has 150 cal per cooked cup with no fat and 1 gram of fiber. White rice has 240 cal per cooked cup with 0.1 g of fat and 0.6 g of fiber. Brown rice is a good food to mix with cooked vegetables, is filling, and is eaten world-wide (how many obese asians do you see?). ...Read more
Minimize sugars &...: Simple sugars are unhealthy & best avoided but I think a small amount of cane sugar in dark chocolate is ok due to the benefits of chocolate! I don't know what you mean by sticking to only rice & oats. The healthiest diet has few if any grains. The healthiest foods are vegetables & fruits (best organic), nuts, seeds & beans. Organic eggs, dairy, wild low-mercury fish & natural meats are ok now &then. ...Read more

Is brown rice is the same with black rice in terms of nutrients and sugar-releasing thingy? Or Black rice is better than all?
Both colors of rice are starches or carbohydrates. They will stimulate insulin release due to their sugar.
Black rice has the highest amount of antioxidant anthocyanin of any plant. It also contains iron which maybe hard to get for a vegetarian without eating meat.
Eat in moderation and enjoy all types of rice. ...Read more
I have been getting hives recently and have been eating raw brown rice everytime I go to the kitchen. Are the two connected?
No: There are numerous different kinds of hives. Sometimes it is allergy to food or medicine. Often it is not allergy. If you have hives every day for 6 weeks, you probably have chronic urticaria which is not allergy. See a dermatologist to determine if you have hives, which kind, and how to manage it. Meanwhile, try ceterazine (Zyrtec) 10mg one or two a day. ...Read more

Which is healthier? Brown rice or whole grain bread? And is it normal that I'm having romantic feelings towards another male? I'm 18 and male
Cooked brown rice and it says every 1/4 cup is 160 I made 1/2 cup so it's 360 the rice doubled in size to 2 cups did the calories increase too??
Calories=cooked: Measure the product after it is cooked for accurate calorie information. Cooking only adds water, btw, it doesn't affect the nutritional value. If you use parboiled rice or parboil it yourself, the glycemic index goes down a bit (the extent to which your blood sugar rises), which is a good thing. ...Read more

Sir, Which is having more sugar among brown rice & white rice and which one is not good for diabetics? ?
Brown rice better: Hi. White rice, like all refined grains, is less healthy for you than the whole grain (brown rice in this case, but also whole wheat compared to white flour). The whole grains have fiber and nutrients that the processing removes. Refined grain products are not good for anyone, including diabetics. Sugar is not added to grains in the refining process, however; whole grains have as much starch. ...Read more
Is brown rice healthy for consumption for a type 2 diabetic? I like brown rice veggie sushi, is it a healthy choice for me? Thanks.
Better than white: Rice -whether it is white or brown is a carbohydrate and should be eaten in a limited amount when you have dm. Brown rice is a better choice because it is higher in fiiber and tends to have better effect on blood sugars. I usually encourage my pts w dm to stay < 30-45grms/meal in women and < 45-60 in men- rice I feel is a carb that encourage getting rid of and focusing on increased veggies. ...Read more
Reduced rice consumption is advised for weight loss. Does this apply to both white and brown rice? Does brown rice have any benefits for weight loss?
I found out that there are high levels of arsenic in brown rice. I eat brown rice on its own and in cakes, cereal and pasta every day! Should I stop?
Hey randy so ur sayin instead of 1 slice of wheat bread a day, I should eat brown rice instead? And how much a day, tryin 2 cut weight. I'm 18, 5'9, 175
Better choice, little: Many believe minimizing sugars ; starches is the best way to lose weight so minimizing all grains help. But brown rice is better than bread because it has a lower glycemic index (50 vs.71) ; lower carbohydrate density (see http://bit. Ly/1btzrp7). Bread also has gluten that some say stimulates appetite ; causes obesity, but this is not universally accepted. The less starches the better. See comment:. ...Read more
