    Aresenic has always come up with American grown rice. It just so happens all the American white or brown rice Ive tasted is off and is of low quality with texture and taste. I grew up on Jasmine rice that as of lately comes from Thailand. Different rice requires different washing and preparing. There are videos about this. Most of what I have read in this thread seems like it is about American varietal. For perspective a duck egg and chicken egg have many different quakities as dies if either the chicken or duck lives in its iwn feces or is open to walk free. Dont eat poached eggs from a feces covered caged chicken. Dont eat rice grown in America.

    I stay away from rice as much as possible.

    For me it's protein + carbs or Protein + fat, add in skipping breakfast or just have some whey protein, skip lunch or have some whey protein.
    Add in some BCAA's to the whey.
    And with the whey I take a gulp of extra virgin oil if at home but sometimes substitute a tablespoon of coconut oil.

    Bacon is good but no more than a half pound at a time, it'll make your tongue sore if you eat too much.

    That's my favorite too. Costco sells a really good Thai Jasmine rice. Only problem is that you have to buy it in the 50lb. bag. This rice cooks up PERFECT in a rice cooker. Way better than the Basmati I used to eat.

    Start with a half pound, but try to increase that by a rasher every so often. Soon you will be able to eat a pound or even two pounds at a time no problem. I'm up to 1lb myself. My goal for 2014 is to increase that to 2lbs daily.

    2 lbs is quite extreme from a metabolism point of view. What do your overall nutrition plan look like? (calorie type, macro nutrients, micro nutrients, minerals)

    I think he is being ironic, u know, a kind of humor in some cultures! :shock:

    U may think that ironic means purely made of iron, like Arthur in my fav show King of Queens, but not so!

    Culture? Ey, I'm form the Great Northern plains and mountains called Kanada...


    -_- I hate irony. I might take forums like this too seriously...

    My philosophic thought of the day: Where is the balance between fun irony brings and data from people experiments?

    Disruptive ideas come from crazy ideas. Now who is up for the 2 lbs of bacon daily challenge?

    Rice by itself is very boring and hard to eat. I think Spaggetti rice is great for tennis players.

    ^^ for years Duke University ran a residential diet program -- I believe it finally closed -- known as the "rice diet." People would check in for weeks, or longer, in a dormitory setting and essentially live on rice. Small amounts of fruit were allowed to break it up a bit. A patient of mine went there many times, once for about two months, and calculated that he lost (and regained) thousands of pounds there. He weighed about 480 at his max.

    My plan is to eat 2 lbs. of bacon, drink a cup of coconut oil (used to drink olive oil), 1lb. of organic cheese, and a glass of wine.

    I asked my wife to buy me a jazzy for Christmas so I could cut down on my exercise, not have to refuel, and not get fat. This and my low carbs should keep me the picture of health.

    I like eating a rice blend that has Long Grain Brown Rice, Sweet Brown Rice, Wild Rice Bits, Wehani, Black Japonica. I eat it without any seasoning. Just boil it and it's ready to eat, as it tastes quite good on its own.

    There is a lot of paranoia about foods. Some of it is of course justified, but in general common sense is always the best policy.

    1. Eat in moderation, both in quantity, and in the proportion of different things you eat.
    2. Vegetables are overall better than animal products. Green vegetables are overall better than fruit, which tends to have too much sugar. Fish is overall better than poultry, and poultry overall better than red meat. Watch out for radioactive / mercury contaminated fish though.
    3. Watch what you eat and how your body responds, and modify your diet accordingly. You should also be modifying your diet throughout your life.

    The best website for food related information I have ever found is whfoods.com (World's Healthiest Foods). Great information very well researched and with bibliographical information.

    I am guessing your opponents lob you with regularity -- since everything goes right over your head.

    Ok, but i must say that it doestnt sound like ur ancestors hail from those mountains. Eg ur philosophic thought of the day, how to balance the fun of ironing and getting data from people experiments, is not usually a concern in the western world! :confused:

    I think the rice diet was mostly for detox purposes. Popular in the seventies and eighties. My mother did it, and convinced my brother to do it. I was 11 or 12 and would hear nothing of it! For some 10 days they ate nothing but rice and drank tea i believe. My mother is very healthy, her skin all yellow from all the carrots she has eaten :shock:

    How did you eat rice for break. With what ?

    I have moved to rice for lunch, i would like to take wheat out of my diet, so i am wondering how to replace those 2 wheat toasts and three rotis at dinner.

    That's me. Thrice a day. However, now that i have resumed running (i have a wheat allergy which gives me serious breathing problems while running) I am trying to cut wheat right out.

    What options are there? I have heard of rice flour and i suppose i could get rice bread. However, my dad's side does have diabetes and you mentioned that rice is not good for that.

    Also some people here said white rice has low/no nutritionally value. What wheat substitute do you know of that doesn't have diabetes issues and doesn't have gluten.

    To be very healthy, you could substitute wheat and rice with vegetables in your dishes, or move in that direction.
    Have some fruit for dessert if you want more carbs.

    no, the rice diet was not for "detox." Like any diet that allows very limited choices, it was intended to keep you alive while you became so tired of eating rice that you ate very little of it and lost lots of weight, which is what generally happened. I've heard people involved with the program speak and they had no pretensions of "detox," whatever that means in this context.

    I don't know about Lee, but my world would not be quite so enjoyable without the occasional eggs, rice and linguica, tocino, bacon, spam or any of the other tasty breakfast meats of the ilk. Not to mention the delicious loco-moco. :)

    What about methi ki roti? what is it? rye or something? i had it in singapore in an indian restaurant this year and it was great. I believe it is a staple in punjabi dhabas.

    Rice for breakfast is quite common in Asia. Whenever I am in Hawaii, the resort breakfast buffet always has rice to cater to Asian (mainly Japanese) tourists.

    BTW, your breakfast idli has rice

    Sure. A bowl of cold rice with milk and some honey. Rice doesn't need to be puffed or crispy to make a good cereal.

    Usually speaking it would be wheat with methi in it. However, there is no telling, if it some exotic place they could have mixed in other flours to give it a different texture. You could put methi in any kind of roti. In a punjabi dhaba it would be wheat. The only other roti is the missi roti which uses ground channa dal (aka besan). I can check on this, though. When i tried to go wheat free in the 80's i did experiment with missi rotis, but the rice diet made me lose weight and i became weak since i was a wheat eater.

    Oh, IF ONLY ... i could have idlis for breakie everyday.
