    Is quinoa as main carb ok ?

    Hey, question. I guess it wont be a problem, but still, better to ask, since today is many foods avaible, that are not that safe to eat in high amounts/daily so i like to ask first. I live active lifestyle, doing sports, workouts etc. so i need plenty of carbs, but i never looked that much into that and basically my main carb sources are oats and white rice (ofc, dairy,fruits,vegs etc. but those 2 are main). Oats are fine, i dont plan to change it, but i want change rice, at least for some time, because im literally stuffed of it. I looked on internet and found quinoa. I never ate quinoa that much, but i like the taste, but mainly its lot more benefical than white rice -> more vitamins and minerals/fiber/protein, its awesome.

    So in nutshell, my question is, is it safe to eat like 200-300g of quinoa daily, or is it too much and there is "something" in quinoa that makes it better to eat in moderation ? Thanks (sorry, if question sounds stupid, but i ate daily cooked liver with rice in high amounts daily and ye, then i found out that its not the best option)

    You're overthinking this...

    I know someone who ate quinoa as his main carb and he died. YMMV.

    Adding quinoa to your diet will be a good thing - gives you more variety. You should also be getting carbs from fruits and vegetables and other whole grains (whole grain bread/pasta/cereal). Brown rice or basmati rice are better for you than white rice. Also foods like black beans give you carbs, fiber, and protein - could be a good addition, too. Lastly, it's okay to have some sweets in moderation, as well.

    If all your carbs came from only rice or quinoa, that would be pretty boring and probably not the most healthy thing in the world.

    3.5 billion people eat rice as their main source of carbohydrate, yet quinoa has the advantage of also being a source of complete protein.

    Don't overthink this.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    My mom is a doctor and she would say you'll be fine.
    My dad is also a doctor and he would say you're going to die.

    They are both correct.
