I would like to know a rough estimate on how many calories and carbs in this plate of rice (assuming it was full and not 3/4 - sorry about that I was hungry! haha)

I always get confused because some websites state 200 calories in a cup of rice - but am not sure if they referring to the rice as raw or cooked.

Hard to guess, if its a cup of cooked rice it would be 220 ish calories.

Edit: They would be referring to the rice as cooked

I would eat white rice, it is better for you then brown rice.

My guess for a full plate there would be about 2-3 servings so 220-330 cals.
You should add some meat in there and some veggies ! ;)

Ok thank you.

And yes, there was definitely some meat (or fish in this case) and veggies. I just don't like mixing the food together with rice lol

Care to explain why or provide a link? It's always nice to provide explanations for statements. :)
