I've heard that eating brown rice is better. Can any of you confirm that in your experience that it is better? Any nutrition tips or cooking styles you suggest for brown rice?
The difference between basic/traditional White and brown rice is what layer is removed: If the husk is removed, the result is brown rice. If the bran layer underneath is removed, the result is white rice. Therefore, if you are eating white rice, you getting less bran/fiber along with the food, and this is primarily the only major difference. Other than this, the calories/macros are virtually identical, and arguably in most cases (dependent upon the person) insulin response is the same.
