rice? RICE????


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about rice? RICE???? within the Diet & Bodybuilding category.

Excerpt: I hear people, including people who are cutting, talk about eating rice to get *some* carbs. Yet I understand rice has a higher glycemic index than spaghetti. So why do people eat rice? And what's the best source of carbs for someone trying to seriously cut? Going into ketosis isn't the answer.... or is it?

    i eat rice particularly brown rice but white rice is ok (basmati rice, has a Gi of <60)
    as part of my post post workout meal when these carbs can be put to good use, but even then i have a "Body for life" portion so i doubt the glycemic load is too heavy, i estimate about 30-40gms of carbs

    Hmm. Somewhat like a post-workout drink that has carbs.

    For a while I tried spaghetti with my post-workout low-carb/high protien shake. So why aren't you useint spaghetti?
