    Rice portions????

    I have always counted my rice 1/2 cup 1 cup or watever my amount is when the rice is uncooked. Like if i ate 1 cup of rice i would always make it 1 cup dry uncooked rice. Is this right or does 1 cup of rice mean 1 cup cooked. Ive been increasing my carbs slowly because im starting a clean bulk and i just noticed that 1 cup of rice is a hell of alot of rice once its cooked.

    Read your packet of rice..... usually 1/4 cup uncooked is a serving, and it makes 3/4 cup cooked. Rice expands a lot...

    No. !/2 cup uncooked rice is equal to 2/3 cup cooked. So when you use 1 cup uncooked you are at about 1 1/3 cooked.

    Probably cooked.... since the example diet is only 130g of carbs, that would mean 80 from dextrose, 27 from oatmeal, and 23 from the brown rice.

    i say like a little less then half the dried amount. So like 1/4 cups because rice blows up when you cook like double the size if not more.

    Read the label on your box of rice. Every brand seems to be slightly different. Some expands by 2 (1/2 cup dry = 1 cup cooked), some expand by 3, and some only expand by 1.5

    Calorieking.com has the values cooked or uncooked. 7oz. cooked brown rice is 44.7 carbs, according to that.
