    i didn't do anything wrong. i lead an active lifestyle. that's who i am. i ate low carb paleo for about a year. i went through the whole low carb flu. lasted about 3 weeks for me. i did adapt. i was on top of the world. felt great. then i bonked. eating low carb, despite eating roughly 3500 calories a day, wasn't supporting my energy needs. i'm not going to stop doing the things i love to do, just because part of the paleo crows thinks that low-carb is the way to live. so i added in sweet potatoes, potatoes, white rice, and little more fruit. and i've been going strong for well over a year now. i don't eat high carb every day, only on days that are super high intensity. and it works for me. and countless others in the paleo community who aren't here for weight loss. white rice 2-3 times per week truly isn't the end of the world. i'm sorry you think it is

    serving size: 1/4 cup uncooked (makes ~ 3/4 cup cooked)
    calories: 150
    Fat: 0 grams
    Protein: 3 grams
    Carbs: 35 grams

    Going by Mark's Carb Curve:

    0-50 gms carb: probable ketosis. It fits if you keep it to one serving as described above.

    If you double the serving size (so 70 grams of carbs), it fits into the next part of the curve. 50-100 gms of carb that is described as the "weight loss sweet spot."

    So as far as carb amounts, white rice fits into the parameters for weight loss - if you very much watch the rest of your carb intake for the day.

    It's not nutritionally great, so for people who have to eat calorically low, it's kind of a waste of calories when 150-300 calories of brightly colored veggies and certainly 150-300 calories of healthily raised meat or wild fish would nourish you more.

    No matter the rationale, it's a grain.

    So, in response to the original question... There are a lot of people here who know a ton about nutrition. There are a lot of people here who blindly follow the health guru of the month. There are a lot of people somewhere on that continuum. So, I guess some are and some aren't.

    As for abrasive know it alls, this was addressed in a management class I took. They can often be fonts of info. Just sift through the bullshit and ego.
    Why would you use up your carbs on something like white rice when you could be eating veggies and fruit with more nutrients?

    if you are following mark's book, then "use up your carbs" pertains to someone who is here for weightloss. lots of us here aren't on this forum for that purpose. for some reason, people just don't understand that paleo/primal is NOT a low carb diet

    If your doing so good why are you so defensive?

    Like I said, there is multiple stages to low carb flu, you just didn't realize that so you went running back to your carbs.

    I wouldn't. That's why it was in the back of a bottom cabinet. But that wasn't the question.

    If I look back 10 days, I've averaged <35 gms carb/day. No room in there for rice if I want nourishment. I also eat between 750 and 1700 calories per day. Again, I don't have room for the empty eats.

    But I think some very smart people here occasionally indulge in rice. I don't think they are delusional.

    If im so wrong why is everyone getting so antsy?

    When your health is perfect like mine, you just laugh at people like you because if you were really confident in your beliefs you wldnt find the need to tear down opposing opinions.
    When my health is perfect like yours?

    Did you heal/are you healing a serious brain disease... if not you can seriously GFYS.
    I don't give one flying fuck about "ripped".
    "Ripped"=/= health and never has.
    Good lord.

    Also I did not "tear down [any] opposing opinion".
    Are you so full of yourself that you are illiterate?
    Rice does not work for me, as I stated.
    And people here are not arguing that what you do isn't "right for YOU", they are just stating that other things work for other people.

    But it does for some people.
    Including that freakishly ripped, gizzard assed, dude that won the body building competition that I posted a picture of.
    I dare say that he is more ripped than you... and "knows lots" about nutrition and how to stack on muscle.


    Pompous illiteracy... that's what people are responding to all "antsy", just so ya know.

    Outdoor activities such as that never really crossed my mind as chronic cardio, in my mind they fit more into the play category, perhaps that is just me though.
