Say less 🍚😂🍚 pass me the rice and beans!!
While many stop rice when attempting to drop weight a new study suggests average rice consumption could protect your against obesity. Countries that “eat rice as a staple food have lower obesity rates" says the report.
Experts found that people following a Japanese or Asian-style diet based on rice were less likely to be obese than those living in countries where rice consumption was low. Researchers said low-carbohydrate diets – which limit rice – are a popular weight-loss strategy in developed countries but the effect of rice on obesity has been unclear.
The research looked at rice consumption in terms of grams per day per person and calorie intake in 136 countries.
