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?).
Rice. Rice can be a good source of carbohydrates. It is included on many diet plans. It is good in moderation and would recommend brown rice versus processed white rice.
Moderation. You can lose weight eating candy, and gain weight eating vegetables. They key is to choose good, nutrient-rich foods (and brown rice is better in this regard than white rice), eat a good variety, and eat less overall calories.
