Rice: the best ally against obesity

Research by a Japanese scientist, presented at an obesity congress showed that rice is a great ally in the fight against obesity.


Once again,  Eastern cultures demonstrate millennial wisdom.  More powerful than the latest advances in the West. Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Laotian and other cultures where people are mostly thin, have rice as  the best ally against obesity. 

  Rice  is rich in nutrients and fibers. That might give you a feeling of satiety that leads us to need to eat less. And in addition,  it contains little fat and produces little blood glucose.  Which can result in the production of less insulin.

 Of course, it's not about eating just rice to reduce obesity. 

 But increasing rice consumption could lead to metabolic syndrome and diabetes .

The idea is to have a balanced and healthy diet. And incorporate more of this cereal daily, and in slightly higher amounts than today we eat.

 In short: eating more rice is the best ally against obesity. 

They are the most striking conclusions of a  congress of obesity experts  from around the world, held recently in Scotland. We'll have to believe them and listen to them.

 In addition to combating obesity, rice is a very present element in our kitchen . And in the kitchen of our Spanish, Italian or Middle Eastern ancestors. Whether as a main course or as a side dish, it is something that should not be a problem incorporating.

It is an ideal side dish of meat, chicken and fish.

Stews, casseroles, paellas, egg rice, sushi, white rice, rice with butter, croquettes, fritters, milanese a la maryland...  Recipes containing rice are very many, rich, easy, and proven healthy. 

So add to the rice.  A quarter cup per day (50 grams) is the recommended amount per person , especially in adults. For you to have an idea, and in Argentina we consume 25 grams per day . Duplicate and you're done, every time you prepare it.
