    Why is white rice bad for you....???

    Hey,

    I "was" eating brown rice until i sort of.. leaned my way to white rice. But i checked the macros for it and its like 84gs of carbs per 100g and the rest was 0 fat, sodium etc except protein i forgot what it was but it was quite low.

    The rice is Jasmine rice. Is this rice alright to replace brown?

    Reasons why i dislike brown rice are it taster like burnt potatoe skin, bit dry, i just hate it

    White rice is very processed which removes many of the vitamins and minerals from it. Also, since it is not a "whole" grain a lot of the fiber is removed during processing. Some people equivocate eating white rice or white bread to eating a cup of sugar.

    White rice isn't "bad." If you hate eating brown rice, don't eat it.

    It's not bad.

    On an absolute scale, it's not the "best" (define it) depending upon what criteria you are evaluating. But on a practical scale - the one that actually matters, not much difference when considering you consume it in a mixed meal and in a fed state.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Go to nutritiondata.com and look at the differences between white rice and brown rice. It is hardly a earthshaking difference.

    Just add a small amount of veggies to white rice and it more than makes up for any small nutrition advantage the brown rice had.

    Fragrant jasmine rice is the greatest. One thing you could try though, if you're concerned about not getting the nutrients of brown rice, is mix a bit of wild or brown in with the white. It still preserves the nice fragrant white rice flavour with a lil added bonus.

    white rice = high gi and simple carbs which lacks nutrition. White rice is is fine in small amounts like anything but should be kept to a bare minimum. You need complex carbs which brown/wild rice offers.

    Indeed, what is "earthsaking" is brown rices highly esteemed reputation. It is far less nutritious than either white or sweet potatoes, beans, butternut squash etc. Essentially, rice is calories/fuel - nothing wrong with it, but not a wonder food

    Go check out white bread vs wheat bread at Nutritiondata.com.

    Seriously this is another food comparison that is almost like splitting hairs.

    Really it doesn't seem like worrying about brown rice over white rice or wheat bread over white bread is worth the trouble. This is probably why the new 2005+ food pyramid puts more emphasis on vegetables in the carb macro (vegetables definitely are very nutrition dense unlike these other things people talk about)

    white rice is bad for me because I have to load it with a cup of terriaki sauce or a cup of sugar for it to taste good.

    Disclaimer: I think wheat bread is a better choice than white bread (and it tastes better too), but this healthier dietary choice is likely not going to have a lot of impact if the diet has shortcomings elsewhere.

    Honestly knowing what foods are truly nutritious and what foods are "hyped" is probably the best way for a person to inform themselves.

    As far as whether nutrition is adequate or not this is what I think may be happening--->http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...#post242688471

    Understand that a "good diet" doesn't have to contain only the most nutritious foods. A good diet only has to be sufficient enough to avoid deficiency.

    fyi brown rice is not better for u then white rice and the gi's are virtually the same. tbh most "pros" eat white rice instead of brown rice.

    I used to have brown rice for years, but then i made the switch after my mate told me about basmati rice. I've been eating that ever since and i feel so much better both in the gym and in general with my energy. I'd always struggled in the past with maintaining energy throughout the day, so this had helped me a great deal.

    Give that a go if you like. But white rice itself isn't too bad. Find what works for you. We're all different when it comes to dietary needs

    Good thread. I'm glad to hear this, because brown rice tastes like absolute ass.
