I was on vacation this week, so I inevitably had to consume some noodles and/or rice. I've been consuming basmati rice on a daily basis for the past month or so (just added it back) and I've been doing fine. One night, we had to have spaghetti. I was like ... uh oh, but I ate it all.
I always hear of these type of carbs as problems for many PBers. The spaghetti didn't affect me at all - no stomachaches or bloating or whatever. What's the deal?
by the way, I'm not trying to lose weight.
feel free to take a look at my journal!
Rice is fine, but spaghetti has wheat in it, and wheat has a lot of issues. Many paleo people are perfectly comfortable with white rice, even daily. Wheat, which is in spaghetti, however, has other issues. Some people have a far worse immediate reaction to wheat than others, nevertheless, it is not a good thing to incorporate in your diet on a regular basis.
