In brief: 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.

In brief: Brown rice is better

As a general rule, complex carbohydrates are better that refined, white carbohydrates.
Brown rice is better than white rice. Whole grain bread is better than white bread. Baked goods that contain plenty of fiber are better than cakes that have little or no fiber. Breakfast cereals containing little sugar (less than 5 g/serving) are better than cereals with lots of sugar (more than 10 g/serving).
