    Eating Rice ?

    I am sure it's been asked before but it seems to me that rice has been the main diet for Asians for a long time. They don't seem to have weight problems especially the Japanese and they live a long time. Even though rice is a grain, I don't see how it could cause a problem. Anyone care to comment. Thanks.

    Yup, it doesn't.

    White rice is not wheat.

    White rice may not be a problem... until one develops insulin resistance. Insulin resistance in the Asian world may be a lot more prevalent than the rate of obesity.

    Any good starch is still just that, starch. Use it wisely, don't let it crowd out your nutrition.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
