View Full Version : Rice for cutting?

Here is the deal:

I bought a Tanita scale, although I know, its bodyfat measurements are BS. Still it's good for recording the changes in your BF%.

I usually have the same amount of food every day. The only change I made the past couple of days is that I had either bread or rice. And guess what, the days after I ate rice, my BF% dropped. Does this make sense?

rice doesn't give quite the same kind of insulin response as wheat.

wheat sorta mimics the insulin response (on top of creating one), whereas rice just stimulates insulin. if you understand what i mean?

oh yeah, that part too. I wouldn't necessarily take the tanita scales word for anything,

butthe point still stands thatrice beats out wheat imo.

Thanks, that was what I was thinking... As I said, the tanita thing is BS. But it can give a rough idea.
