Anyone else think rice eaters are just delusional sugar addicts?

    Humans adapted to having multiple copies of AMY1 long before the rise of neolithithic agriculture.

    It's been posited as the adaption that made 'out of africa' possible.

        Apparently low carb and being "ripped" also increases ego size, though artificially so.

                  Mmmm...my basmati sort of smells like popcorn. I'm going to eat some and enjoy how much it enrages random dudes on the internet with massive muscles and massive egos.

                  Oooh, and then I might eat some white potatoes! The starch! The horror!

                      I'm seriously going to quit reading this forum. What a waste of time it has become.

                        Just because your low carb doesn't mean your doing it right. There's not too many people as ripped as me, and i dont know exacatly what they eat but id be surprised. My muscles are very hard and dense where carbs tend to make muscles bloated with water so people think they have huge muscles but it's not as much as they think when they get rid of carbs.

                        Hey, here ya go...

                        There are actually a lot of people in the world who had rather keep a little fat on their ass than be "as ripped as [you]" and just as self centered an ass hat spouting know-it-all claims to the world as you... because you can obviously have the ONLY answer that will work for everyone.

                        So now you know.
                        You can go live in peace.
                        A little sad maybe, but you can go...

                        BTW, just so you know I added some rice and higher carb items back to my diet, it didn't work for ME.
                        But it does for other people.
                        I need to stay LC to even VLC.
                        Maybe later that will change...
                        It really is an n=1 world.
                        And YOU don't own it.


                        Want to see someone else "ripped"?

                        There you go...
                        And that is disgusting. His ass looks like a chicken gizzard.
                        I don't think I'll be eating gizzards again any time soon, and I wouldn't touch him willingly.

                        No... I say people should eat all the rice they want to eat.
                        NO GIZZARD BUTTS!

                          I grew up in an agrarian community in a small backwards Asian country. Most of my close relatives are still there, in fact. We've been rice and carb addicts for generations now, and we've got the 90-100 years old lifespan to show for it too. It's a damned shame they can't follow paleo, having to make a living off the land and all...

                            I had rice mixed in with my grass fed ground beef stuffed peppers....with that make me a leper
                            Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                              We have rice occasionally. It's nice with thai food.

                              We are lean (i'm 20% now because i had some stress eating over the last two months, but i'm heading back to 18%; DH is 9% and going down), and DH has kumara (sweet potato) on work-out days and we have thai once a month or so.

                              We are not sugar addicts -- we get below 125 g per day (most days I'm around 80, DH is around 90, but on workout days he's higher) -- but sometimes we have higher carb days, so there you go.

                                How do I prepare this to be delicious???? I have tried popping it into my rice cooker, cooked it in my rice cooker with curry spices, and cooked it with meat and garlic in other dishes, but to no avail. It still tastes dry and tasteless with a cakey texture. How to make it tasty?

                                On the other hand, sticky rice and jasmine are delicious. I will have a cup now and then.
