    Rice vs. Potatoes

    In terms of health, what are the benefits of rice and what are the benefits of potatoes? In terms of a good source of carbs, which is better?

    Sweet potatoes have the lowest g.i. out of any carb source that i've seen so far, i always go with them over rice, both are great source of fiber though, can't go wrong with either one.

    Not true at all - sweet potatoes are great, but most beans (e.g., kidney) and hulled barley have far lower GI.

    But I agree with overall sentiment that potatoes > rice.

    I also think that rice and pasta needs to be carefully weighed unless ur eating as many cals as possible, as people don't seem to realise how many cals are in these foods. It's difficult to have a satisfying 500 cal meal with either as your carb source given that u probably only want 250 carb cals, whereas its a bit more possible with potatoes

    most vegetables/tubers/nuts are going to have much more minerals and vitamins than their grain counterparts.

    If u want the satisfying meal and are hungry, consider using roasted pumpkin with sweet potatoe as the carb source.

    Pumpkin is about 25 cals per 100 gram, tastes great, and is actually a starch, with about 80% of its net carbs as starch (similar to sweet potato). It's more nutrient dense than any starch too by a mile. Has a similar taste to sweet potato.

    that's exactly what i've been eating a lot of lately, baked pumpkin and sweet potato. It's a good combo because just one type at a time is a bit boring. Just put a bit of oil on them before you bake them so they don't dry out too much.

    Yeah it's awesome - pumpkin is very underrated too. Unlike other low cal veggies, a very low % of its net carbs are sugar and its a good source of every nutrient except B12, D, and selenium (http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-C00001-01c20fw.html), which are not hard to get nutrients, which makes me wonder given its great taste why it hasn't got the reputation as one of the great veggies, particularly as its a veggies where eating lots of it isn't painful.

    Tastes really good with non-fat cheese singles + PB too. When cutting if I ever wanted a binge, I would just have about 700-1000 grams of pumpkin, a bit of PB, non fat cheese, and it be about 500 cals and a really nutritious meal

    (You can microwave the pumpkin with glad wrap and it stays moist if u want no oil.)
