Thought I'd share my success story for those in need of inspiration.
Success stories and pics always inspire me and keep me going...thanks.
Real nice! I love that your success story has figures and references.
As a rice enthusiast myself, I was drawn to this thread. Do you substitute anything for the rice to get the same feeling or satisfaction?
Thanks guys. I majored in math back in school and am a data analyst consultant by profession, so I'm very numbers and results-driven.
As for kicking the rice habit, it was hard at first, but I've come to the realization that rice is quite bland compared to real food. I hardly miss it now. However, since my social circle includes so many other Asians, I find myself eating rice once or twice a month, which keeps me well within the 80/20 rule.
You look great!
What was the motive for quitting rice? Trying to cut carbs or lose fat? Both?
My husband and I eat a fair amount of rice - at least once a week. Robb Wolf says it's very well tolerated by most people, unlike other grains.
Curious if your reason for quitting was weight or leaky gut issues or what?
I had somewhat elevated blood pressure, bloating, constantly feeling hungry, and energy crashes. I do notice that when I go to Vietnam, however, that Asian-Americans seem to eat more rice than those in Vietnam. My guess at the reason for this is that our bowls and plates are bigger, and we feel the need to fill the plate.
