Brown Rice

Brown Hill

Asian people love to eat rice but most of them are into processed white rice. To those who are health-conscious, they opt for brown rice. It may be the healthier choice but still, brown rice is high in carbohydrates and in calories too.

A serving of cooked brown rice is about ¾ cup (boiled with water) and it has 186 calories. White rice is only 154 calories but as for nutrients, brown rice has 1.8 grams of fiber and 2.6 grams of protein. White rice only has half of the fiber content. And if you are trying to lose weight, you’d want foods that are high in fiber because it will help with the feeling of satiety.
