Have a habit of eating raw rice and is that it effects me in future?

Check for anemia: Raw rice is harder to digest than cooked rice. If one chews and chews to grind the raw rice into a flour slurry, it should digest better. If one has no gurgly tummy symptoms, then the raw rice is not likely causing any problems. One might end up with TMJ pain due to all that chewing. One should also be checked for anemia, which can cause cravings to chew on things. There exist some raw rice myths. Read more

I have a habit of eating raw rice. Does that habit affect me from gaining weight?

Rice gains weight.: Rice are carbohydrates. If you eat them and don't burn them through physical activity, they are stored as fat. You gain weight. If you exercise and eat a well balanced diet, there should be no significant weight gain. Not cooking it, does not save you from gaining the weight, acids in the stomach break through the rice so the body can absorb it's calories and if fortified, nutrients. Read more

Possible deficit: This is a strange dietary habit. Is it a personal preference or do you feel compelled to eat raw rice? This might be a form of Pica, which is often a sign of some kind of nutrient deficiency. You might consider seeking medical care to evaluate for deficiency in iron and other micronutrients.

Pica: Is the medical term for eating unusual things like ice, cornstarch, clay or raw rice compulsively. It is often a sign of iron deficiency anemia.

One idea: Some people like to eat little hard things -- I'm glad in your case it's rice and not clay or paint chips. I got myself iron-deficient from overzealous blood donation and before I knew it, I discovered myself eating ice chips -- just like the textbooks say is a tipoff. Next time you're at your physician's office, a check of your serum iron may be in order. The rice won't hurt you. Read more

I have a habit of eating raw rice. I am addicted to that. My mom says my haemoglobin level will decrease and I will become anemic if I eat raw rice.?

What kind of rice?: If you are eating polished rice and do not have sufficient intake of other foods, it could cause nutritional deficiencies worse than anemia.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

No, it will not: Rice does not have any effect on Iron absorption or metabolism. The best way to find out your Hb is to get a CBC done and check the results of your Hemoglobin. It should be over 12-13 grams. Read more

I get hungry every hour and eat a lot but recently a few months back I started eating raw rice. Is it a good thing to do? Should I stop it?

I get hungry every hour and eat a lot but recently a few months back I started eating raw rice. Is it a good thing to do? Should I stop it?

Pica? See doc: Eating every hour may not be entirely unusual at your age but you should still get a check out to find out if you may have diabetes, thyroid problem. Your obsession on raw rice may be a sign of iron deficiency anemia- or pica. There is no harm I can see in eating raw rice, unless that's all you eat, except that you may get pretty bloated if you drink liquid with it especially in large quantity. Read more

I have strange addiction, I can't seem to stop myself from eating raw rice. I don't have any problem with my bowel movement though. What I am trying t?

Pica?: If the rice is from a trusted organic source and well washed, it will be safe - but if not, the toxins on it can be harmful. See a Dr for eval of a possiblr nutrient deficiency underlying this and a specialist behavioral therapist tor Tx if you have other non-food cravings that may be more risky and feel it should stop.

I was addicted to eat raw rice for 10 years & just stop for last 4 years. I look pale from head to toe esp. My lips. What should I do for my pale prob?

Hard to say: I think an exam and some blood work is indicated. My first guess would be an anemia caused by the lack of iron or B12 in a rice diet. Clearly a simple blood evaluation is in order.

Addiction to eating raw rice is quite rare. You are the first case I have heard of. I would want to hear more about that if we had a formal consultation. Read more
