Now I have asked quite a few people about this down the gym and nearly everyone says that rice is better than pasta however I cannot see why it is any better.
After searching the internet for answers for quite some time there are many different views. Most of peoples argument is related to GI.
Now the GI of brown (55-60) and basmati rice (65-70) is actually higher than normal pasta (50-55) and quite a bit higher than whole wheat pasta (40-45). I understand that wholegrain is better health wise as it has more fibre and minerals etc and has been less processed however macro wise there is very little difference. Does pasta do something different relating to spiking your insulin?
Every bodybuilder you see seems to eat rice (particularly brown) so someone please tell me whether this is really any better than wholewheat, or even normal pasta.
