Can white rice be healthy for you?
Topic: Can white rice be healthy for you?
January 26, 2020 / By Kenneth Question:
So, I know that whole grains are healthy for you, but at the rate that I eat rice (It's a staple in my meals) It would be more cost efficent for me to buy white rice in bulk than brown rice.
Can white rice be healthy if it is eaten in moderation? I know it is a staple in like asian food. Thanks!

White rice is just a polished version of brown rice... so if you ate a fist full of rice is actually good for you! Remember, everything in moderation is okay...

I eat rice all day everyday twice a day, three times a day, any way, every way. lol. Seriously, I do.
Rice is very good for you. Try to eat Brown Rice which is more healthier for you. You can check out what rice is, where it comes from, and etc from Wikipedia. The link is below, and hope you enjoy reading about it.
by the way, you seem to be interested in the culinary field, have you considered going to culinary school after high school? I think you should. If you are not interested in that. Consider going to school for either Health Education, Dietetics, or Nurition Sciences. You'll see how many things you can know about different types of food, not only rice.
The rice on this picture looks so good. http://azcookbook.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/rice-strained.jpg
You should check out this website: http://www.mediterrasiancooking.com/category/rice/
This website has recipes of different ways to prepare rice in Mediterranean and Asian way. mmmm mmm good.
This is a brown rice recipe:
This is a wild rice recipe: (by the way, wild rice comes from a flower, not from grain, so less starch, more healthier).
I hope you enjoy your food. There are thousands of way of cooking rice, if I personally knew you, I would've shown you and the love I have for rice.
White rice has had all the bran and germ removed. What you have left is calories and carbs.. no other nutritional value. Brown rice has all those things left in the rice plus other vitamins and minerals and fiber too. It maybe more cost effective but do you know exactly what you are eating when you chow down on that pure white rice? The asians often eat brown rice but the reason they can theoretically eat white rice on occasion is because of the greater proportion of veggies, very small amounts of fish, pork or chicken (they didn't used to even have beef as an option). They use meat as a condiment, not as a major part of every meal.
If you think about it the western world is getting a raw deal when they eat white rice. Food processors remove the germ and sell it back to us at a highly inflated price as a food ingredient and they remove the bran and sell it back to us as rice bran, again at a premium price. if you ate brown rice you may pay a bit more but you get all that goodness left in your rice.

Don’t blame the rice. It has been the main staple in the diets of your ancestors for thousands of years without ever causing weight problems in Asia. The “no white carbs” fad if very popular right now, but if you really think that the white is causing your brother’s weight problems, I suggest that you take a look at the average weight of your fellow white rice eating Asians and compare it to the weights of the no white rice eating Caucasians, and other non Asian races in America. If your brother is over weight, I would guess that he is either eating other foods, such as fast food in addition to the Asian dishes he eats at home, or he is eating portions that are simply too large. "I was wondering, is white rice healthy? Is it okay for my brother to eat if he's like 180 pounds and 5'5? I know he needs to lose a good bit of weight, so I was wondering about that white rice." Yes, it’s OK for him to eat white rice. Lots of people eat white rice three meals per day and don’t become overweight. Your brother should look at other parts of his diet or reduce portions. When I lived in Japan, and ate white rice with every meal, and I was always thin, As soon as I moved back to America, I gained 10 pounds, when my wife moved to America with me and we started eating Japanese food all the time, I lost the weight again. I was only trying to say that white rice is fine when it is part of an Asian diet, which usually includes a lot of vegetables and fish. I also think you need to look up the meaning of the word “ignorant”. It's cool, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't misunderstood

White rice is not unhealthy, it just has simple carbs which makes it harder to lose weight and way less nutrients. So unless your diet is mainly rice or you're trying to lose weight, it's fine to eat.

I am always impressed that there is oftentimes some good advice and good links from people helping others through Yahoo_Answers.
After reading your question I saw you were interested in optimizing your nutrition [(-:] so even though I may not be able to answer your question exactly as you may have wanted it answered, I thought I would take the time to pass on some pointers I have learned the hard way from my own bad 'uninformed' choices, so you could learn about good advice and bad advice about good nutritional choices.
After having many bad health problems from listening to people who knew very little about the consequences of choosing LOW nutritional statistics, I really-really encourage you to learn from good nutritionists what to eat for a life time. [See below]
My best to you and to your future health,
I have learned what I now know after my own lengthy research efforts to improve my health - after ‘FINALLY’ listening to unbiased researching nutritionists. I have shared extensively concerning the most critical nutritional statistics that are common to us all at: <> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Ap_lYDPwvxx8oDPWF1qoSd_sy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20091005174358AAgZawf
Also, after all my previous health problems due to following a-lot of bad advice, I can now understand the frustrations of other health researchers in the following quote within “The China Study” by T Colin Campbell pg 1: >>==>
“Even though information and opinions are plentiful, very few people truly know what they should be doing to improve their health.”
“This isn’t because the research hasn’t been done. It has. But the real science has been buried beneath a clutter of irrelevant or even harmful information – junk science, fad diets and food industry propaganda.”
