Being in a Diet and not eating Rice, that too when your staple food is Rice!!! is a bit stressful. So, I prefer having rice atleast twice a week, and to ward off my guilt i prefer Brown Rice. Though Brown rice and white rice have similar amounts of calories, carbohydrates, and protein. The main differences between the two forms of rice lie in processing and nutritional content.
When only the outermost layer of a grain of rice (the husk) is removed, brown rice is produced. To produce white rice, the next layers underneath the husk (the bran layer and the germ) are removed. Several vitamins and dietary minerals are lost in this removal and the subsequent polishing process.
Saying that, you cannot hog on it, it should be taken minimum. To Brown Rice, i added some mixed sprouts to make it a bit more nutritious.
