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

Brown: One cup of cooked brown rice provides nearly 15 percent of the recommended daily allowance of fiber. Foods high in fiber provide extra volume inside the stomach, which helps you to feel full longer. This effect proves to be particularly beneficial when you are trying to lose weight. After eating brown rice, you remain full for a longer period of time, which reduces the urge to snack between meals. ...Read more

Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more

You can add a salad to your (and everybody's) meal and everyone will be healthier! Eating as a family is important too. ...Read more

Hi, 5'5 and 180 lbs I'm trying to lose weight and be around 150 lbs how many calories do I need to eat. I'm cutting out sugar and rice and flour. I also work out in the gym. I have trouble balancing.?

Hi, 5'5 and 180 lbs I'm trying to lose weight and be around 150 lbs how many calories do I need to eat. I'm cutting out sugar and rice and flour. I also work out in the gym. I have trouble balancing.?

It depends.: I would aim for around 1500-1600 calories for weight loss, though it depends on how active you are. While cutting out sugars and starches can be helpful there are other high calorie foods. I recommend finding an online calorie tracker (there are many apps for apple and android (methyltestosterone) phones) that also allows you to account for exercise. It's easy to underestimate how many calories you consume. ...Read more
