    Rice Question

    Sup all, one question.. Brown or White rice, which do you all eat and why? I've been eating white rice for a while now and someone told me that I should really be eating brown rice, why is that? Thanks

    Brown rice, on the G.I scale it has a lower rating i.e. it is low glycemic therefore takes longer to digest, a sustained release of energy.

    I throw 4oz of salad shrimp in with my rice....makes a world of difference. If I'm bulking I'll dice up a 6oz inside round steak...sometimes I'll dice up a chciken breast.

    Right now I'm eating 125g Brown Rice, 200g Turkey 150g Tuna.

    Tastes dry, and quite shitty but hey I'm true to my cause.

    Jeez Big Al eating that will be good for building muscle but you may also suffer from bad piles the next time you go to the toilet.Hope your drinking plenty of water eating that otherwise you,ll be bulging halfway down your throat when it gets stuck!

    Just yanking your bell bro !! Glad someones eating right but brown rice - I,d rather have tuna and water in the blender!!

    Thanks for the responses guys. It's safe to say that I'm not wasting my time eating white rice, correct?

    Thanks.

    I don,t think so I eat it all the time.Go with either if you prefer white stay with that.If you are watching your carbs though stay away from it !

    Ravaz...I agree with Billy. It's not that white rice is bad, it's just that brown rice is a better choice. Similarily, wheat pasta is better than white pasta and wheat breads are better than white breads for the same reasons BA outlined earlier in this thread. White rice won't hurt you, just stay clean and sharp with your diet and you're good to go.
