why brown rice?
i jus have one quick question ....i've read alot...on here..and have yet to come to the conclusion..why brown rice instead of white rice? Ive looked at the nutrition value of them both..and they are both basically the same...so why brown rice instead of white rice?

only thing I could come up with is the fiber in the brown rice ???
but I look forward to hearing the responses since both seem to have same amount of carbs.

Brown rice is low on the gi scale. I think it has a rating of 55. Anything below 55 is considered to be low.

Brown rice has a lower GI rating, meaning it causes a smaller insulin spike. Brown rice is the kind of carb that provides a slow, steady burn, and since it doesn't cause a higher insulin spike, it's propensity for immediate fat storage is much less.

Yup! Rambo hit it right on the head.
I only eat rice in a post-workout meal however, so for me it's always white!
