    Eat Less Rice...



    The human body was never meant to consume rice!
    You see, our genes have hardly changed in more than 30,000 years. However, our food choices and lifestyle have changed dramatically. The caveman would hardly recognise our food or way of life.

    Caveman food was never cooked as fire was not yet tamed. Thus, he ate only those foods that you can eat without treatment with or by fire.
    He ate fruits, vegetables, fish, eggs, nuts and meat.
    Yes, even meat! You can even eat meat raw if you were starving in the forest. You have the necessary enzymes to digest meat.

    However, rice, like wheat and corn, cannot be eaten raw. It must be cooked. Even if you were starving in the desert, you cannot eat rice in the raw form. This is because we do not have the system of enzymes to break rice down. You were never meant to eat rice. To make matters worse, you not only eat rice, but also make it the bulk of your food.

    In some parts of Asia , rice forms up to 85% of the plate. Even if you take rice, keep it to a minimum. Remember, it is only for your tongue - not your body.
    Actually, rice and other grains like wheat and corn are actually worse than sugar.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...


    Rice becomes sugar - lots of it!

    This is a fact that no nutritionist can deny:
    rice is chemically no different from sugar.

    One bowl of cooked rice is the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar.
    This does not matter whether it is white, brown or herbal rice.
    Brown rice is richer in fibre, some B vitamins and minerals but it is still the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar.
    To get the same 10 teaspoons of sugar, you need to consume lots of kangkong-10 bowls of it.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Rice is digested to become sugar.

    Rice cannot be digested before it is thoroughly cooked. However, when thoroughly cooked, it becomes sugar and spikes circulating blood sugar within half an hour-almost as quickly as it would if you took a sugar candy.
    Rice is very low in the 'rainbow of anti-oxidants. '

    This complete anti-oxidant rainbow is necessary for the effective and safe utilisation of sugar.
    Fruits come with a sugar called fructose.
    However, they are not empty calories as the fruit is packed with a whole host of other nutrients that help its proper assimilation and digestion.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Rice has no fibre.

    The fibre of the 'kangkong' fills you up long before your blood sugar spikes.
    This is because the fibre bulks and fills up your stomach.
    Since white rice has no fibre, you end up eating lots of 'calorie dense' food before you get filled up.
    Brown rice has more fibre but still the same amount of sugar.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Rice is tasteless-sugar is sweet.

    There is only so much that you can eat at one sitting.
    How many teaspoons of sugar can you eat before you feel like throwing up?
    Could you imagine eating 10 teaspoons of sugar in one seating?

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Rice is always the main part of the meal.

    While sugar may fill your dessert or sweeten your coffee, it will never be the main part of any meal.
    You could eat maybe two to three teaspoons of sugar at one meal.
    However, you could easily eat the equal value of two to three bowls (20-30 teaspoons) of sugar in one meal.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    There is no real 'built in' mechanism for us to prevent overeating of rice:

    In one seating, you cannot take lots of chicken, fish or cucumber, but you can take lots of rice. Eating rice causes you to eat more salt. As rice is tasteless, you tend to consume more salt-another villain when it comes to high blood pressure. You tend to take more curry that has salt to help flavor rice. We also tend to consume more ketchup and soy sauce which are also rich in salt.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Eating rice causes you to drink less water.

    The more rice you eat, the less water you will drink as there is no mechanism to prevent the overeating of rice.
    Rice, wheat and corn come hidden in our daily food. As rice is tasteless, it tends to end up in other foods that substitute rice like rice flour, noodles and bread.
    We tend to eat the hidden forms which still get digested into sugar.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Rice, even when cooked, is difficult to digest.

    Try eating rice half cooked.
    Contrary to popular belief, rice is very difficult to digest.
    It is 'heavy stuff'. If you have problems with digestion, try skipping

    rice for a few days.
    You will be amazed at how the problem will just go away.

    Re: Eat Less Rice...

    Rice prevents the absorption of several vitamins and minerals.

    Rice when taken in bulk will reduce the absorption of vital nutrients like zinc, iron and the B vitamins.
