Usually I'm eating about 1.5cup of brown rice with my meals. How many calories/carb is this? The serving size is .25 cup = 170cal but how much is that after cooked?!?!

1.5 cups of cooked brown rice is probably about 75g carbs and 375 calories.

Make sure you try get some complimentary proteins with your meal (or within hours preferably) from legumes,vegies,nut/seed categories. I normally put some red beans and chick peas in with my brown rice, lentils are good also. As long as you body has a lot of all the essential amino acids you can make good use of the protein contents.

Most people aren't vegetarians. We get our protein from things that used to move. Brown rice is a good source of CARBS...that's why we eat it.

True, but meat is expensive to eat all day

Keep in mind that you don't have to eat NY steaks. You can eat cheap sources of protein such as cottage cheese, tuna, eggs, milk and chicken breasts bough in bulk.

Yeah well I don't have a lot of cash, so sometimes I will eat a bowl of brown rice and red beans as a meal, costs less than $1.00 and plenty of protein, some carbs etc. Nothing wrong with mixing up your meals and not having meat products for every meal or protein shakes.

Or you can just run up behind living creatures and devour them alive.....It is only expensive because you are paying for the convenience of not having to hear the death gurgles and dying looks... Meat is actually free..

I was told yesterday that if you eat to much tuna it could lead to high levels of mercury in your system. I eat about a can a day, should I be woried about this.......

do a search on this forum, the topic of mercury in tuna has been covered a lot, probably within the last week or so.
