Rice

Seeing as there are a decent amount of people on the board who don't do Paleo, I'd like to know how many people rely on rice as a carb source. What do you think of it? How much of it do you eat?

For me, I can't work out a few hours after or I get sick (or maybe that was because when I went to Chipotle I put lots of sour cream and cheese in my burrito bowl; the sour cream comes from pasture-raised cows now ).

Re: Rice

I eat white rice pretty frequently as a carb source. It's nutritionally inferior to potatoes, sweet potatoes, root veggies and plantains, but it's really cheap and dead simple to prepare in a pinch.

Typical serving is 1-2 cups cooked. I don't eat it much pre-lifting/WOD, but I like it a lot as trail food running and MTBing since it's almost pure glucose.

Re: Rice

I eat rice three or four days a week and some days I'll have it with both lunch and dinner. A typical serving is ~130g of raw rice because that's how much the measuring cup that came with my rice cooker holds but I have no idea what that weighs when cooked.

Re: Rice

Yeah, joining the others before me, I eat rice aswell, I prefer to have them with my after workout meal to refuel my body. Not sure about the measurement, just a nice, decent portion, to leave enough room on my plate for the meat & veggies.

Re: Rice

Occasionally, especially when I'm doing a carb refeed.

As well the chinese lifters eat plenty of rice to refeed carbs so...

Re: Rice

It's one of my main carb sources, in part because it makes an ideal vehicle for curries and similar sauces.

Re: Rice

I started eating it again recently. I usually have 1/2 cup scoop in with the meat and veggies for lunch and dinner.
I am doing more running and cycling now that it is nice outside.

Re: Rice

Rice prior and post large endurance events i.e. ruck march, hill sprints, long bike rides over 100 miles or runs over 10 miles.

Sweet potato, steel cut oats, lots and lots of that evil stuff called fruit for any workout less than above works for me as my primary carb source.

rice actually isn't too bad for you if you avoid white rice as it's the gummy centre of the rice grain, more nutrients and fiber are in the outer shell so i would suggest looking for brown rice [be carefull of white rice died brown].

Re: Rice

Meh, I get plenty of fiber from all the vegetables I eat and brown rice is nutritionally unimpressive otherwise IMO. When I eat rice it's for maximum carbs/calories with minimum bulk.
