    Re: White rice

    It's fine for me. pretty much; i think it's because unlike wheat/bread it contains no gluten. I eat lots of it anyhow. potatoes are also good. those are the two things that are my carbs...

    who said it was white because it was bleached??? are you nuts? white rice is white naturally...else why do you think poor asian people in vietnam and stuff eat white rice...bleaching would be an extra cost they definitely wouldn't want to incur...

    ****...i mean have you ever seen how rice is grown...you take the seeds from the plant which is grown in water and just cook it after washing...and its white already...

    I haven't noticed it causing breakouts.

    Also, regarding the healthfulness of white rice, after a post from Prometheus, I asked a few Asian friends about white rice and it turns out that the change to white rice (from brown) is - in part- contributing to health problems in asian countries.

    Although I LOVE white rice - its SO addictive - it has little in the way of nutrition. To compromise, you could mix a little white rice with little of that mixed wild rice. That kind of gives you what you want and what you need.

    Re: White rice

    The odd thing is, because the manufacturing of white rice is so prevalent, white rice is cheaper than brown rice!! There are some rices that are naturally "white" and are not refined such as, I believe, some jasmine rices. What you want to avoid is a refined rice or any refined or denatured grain. If you don't want to do the research on how your rice was made, don't buy "white" ricey because chances are its not naturally white. Milled rice has the hull and bran layers removed and is "white". This is what most Vietnamese long grain rice is. There is also "Double polished" vietnamese white rice. Most of this rice is probably exported. White rice is stripped of its nutrients and is a burden on your body. Yes, sometimes it is bleached.

    Poor people have to eat white rice because affluent people want their rice white.

    I've heard from a well-known dermatologist that white rice can cause acne. But with anything, it depends on the person.

    Re: White rice

    Ok, my only forms of grain carbs are usually white (refined) rice and corn. I tend to eat white & glutinous rices, sometimes wild & longrain and brown, and I usually consume Brown Rice GF Pasta. Otherwise, my only white carb is white potatos. Bear in mind I don't eat white rice 3x a day (like people do with bread) and lately haven't even been consuming it several times week. However, I still have 1% acne left and maybe it's because I still consume refined & processed foods 25% - 50% of the time, but WOW what it difference it made avoiding what foods I have!

    Two things you'll hear about is avoiding refined & processed foods and eating more fiber as a means of improving health problems. If you are going to eliminate other refined foods, or (most) grains entirely, then you need to find other fiber sources. These sources should primarily come from Vegetables, some fruits, and whole grains.

    So in this case, the healthy & correct way to do things is to consume more brown rice types than refined (bleached white) types, for nothing else than to avoid Fiber Supplementation. Not to mention brown rice (see how I encourage myself to do better) is far healthier for you regarding acne, diabetes, heart disease, etc, despite it's HIGH glycemic value.

    I absolutely love this Cornell study [url]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=A bstract&list_uids=8604665[/url]

    If you have a choice, choose the brown rice, but if you don't have that control, you shouldn't fret about eating the white stuff. It's far healthier than eating whole wheat! If you ever get bored, as I'm getting to be, there are plenty of other varieties and I'm sure there's other whole grains rice that we'll love.

    Now, there are many theories as to why White rice or Semi-refined rice would be healthier over other types of grains, such Gluten-ontaining or Wheat, and the above study is one example of the huge variance in the way our bodies process these grains and other carbohydrates. So while Whole Wheat has a low Glycemic Load/Index than Whole Grain Rice, Rice is still healthier. For those that are fretting about avoiding Dairy and Soy but still need a protein shake, try Brown Rice Protein Powder.

    HTH


    P.S. I know it is HARD, but once you get some free time, it's much more cost effective to always eat healthier by preparing your own meals. Once you start doing that and realize how much it really costs, Fast Food becomes a "treat" again and eating at a Resturant is for that once a year Birthday Dinner. Of course you are free to go more often, but it leeches a lot of your money, if you don't have "any" to begin with. These places are convenient, but depending on their ingredients & cooking methods, they aren't very healthy not to mention, they and other packaged foods, will cost a lot more than they should in the long run.
