    It isn't sushi if it doesn't have sushi rice. Sushi is by definition seasoned and garnished rice. Raw and cooked seafood without sushi rice is sashimi.

    You are correct...but I dare say it's fairly common for the word "sushi" to be used (in the U.S.) to generally refer to those small, individual pieces of seafood or vegetables served with or without rice, or rolled with or without rice, whether they're actually referring to sashimi, nigiri, maki, etc.

    I've eaten in Japanese restaurants all over the country. I've never seen sashimi called "sushi" anywhere, not in restaurants or in supermarkets.

    Of course, I haven't in Texas.

    White Rice is basically a last resort, or if I want something quickly. Maybe 1..2 times per week.

    I have no issues with it, but I don't feel as good as normal waking up after it. Definitely a difference there. Plus, my craps are...well, not as precise, after I've eaten it.

    It's a safe source of starch and a delicious vehicle for various Asian dishes. Plus it spares the liver from going to the trouble of gluconeogenesis when eaten after activity.

    Yep, white rice is far better than most paleo people think, a great starch post workout that makes you feel great the day after! Just don't overdo it, since it may spill over to fat more easily...

    uh tell me about it, I love eating rice mostly for that taste and because it has B vitamins that help me. That's pretty much it.

    This is strange...I found this thread because I googled, "Why do I feel better when I eat white rice?" A week or two ago I wasn't feeling well and cooked up some white rice, which I hadn't eaten in many years, like maybe ten years. I was very surprised by how much better I felt a short while after I ate the rice with some butter and a little salt. It wasn't a sugar rush, either; I know what that feels like and I don't think of that as "feeling better." It wasn't an energy rush followed by a crash. It was just a sense of feeling better. I've never felt that with any carb before.

    Rice with salt and fat is just another example of why carbs+fat is possibly the best taste ever.

    Arsenic levels are due to farming techniques (soil contaminated with old pesticides) so its entirely possible to buy rice from regions where arsenic shouldn't be a problem. Additionally washing the rice removes some of the arsenic.

    A null food; neither good nor bad. A grain, but so processed that most of the negativity is gone. Stretches the food dollar. A quarter cup of uncooked rice has about 33 grams of carb, 3 grams of protein, 150 calories, cooks up to about 3/4 of a cup of cooked rice, and can stretch a meal nicely for pennies. Used judiciously, can be eaten daily while still keeping below 100 grams of carbs.

    I cook mine twice to get all that gooey delicious starch.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
