Brown rice diet for weight loss....?

Brown rice diet for weight loss....?

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

Is it advisable to stop simple sugars in all forms and stick to only brown rice and oats?

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

Two questions...: Not everyone has romantic feelings toward a member of the same sex. However, your feelings are not abnormal. At least 10 % or more of the general population may have feelings like that toward a member of the same gender.

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

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
