I just do garlic with my brown rice, tastes fine, maybe a little soy sauce when it's done.

I add red kidney beans... that way adds some flavour but also combines the amino acids properly

Little red wine, parsley, oregeno, basil, garlic powder, chicken boulon (this is why I don't add salt) Toss the rice in, and it's a quality mixture when it's cooked.

Is there any good substitutes for brown rice? Like maybe a couple of slices of wheat bread?

No, everyone eats their rice completely plain. No-one has ever thought about putting any flavour in it, or eating it with anything else.

Hot sauce and 200 grams of chicken.

We think alike:

Hot sauce and fish. ;)


I will sometimes add a little worcheshire (sp?) sauce into it if I am eating it alone.

It is, but a small 100g bowl of rice is like 360 calories, which is a lot when you only have 2000 in a day.

100 g UNCOOKED is 360 calories.

That's NOT a small bowl, once cooked.

100 g of cooked rice is only 110 calories.

I'm with superdeathflame on this one. Rice, and most carbs for that matter, are too calorically dense to be consumed with any frequency on a cut...I would say you'd get your most bang for your buck so to speak (most cals vs. how satiated you'll feel) from oats.

I actually find brown rice to be quite filling. 1/4 cup (measured uncooked) brown rice, plus some steamed broccoli, 3 oz tuna, some other vegetables, and a few nuts or some olive oil: a very filling 300-350 calorie meal.

To each his own. The tuna and brocoli in that meal would be what fills me up...I would find 1/4cup rice to be basically negligible.

I agree, I usually have 1/2 cup of brown rice cooked once in a day or maybe once in two days. Thats only about 108 calories and 22 carbs according to fitday, too me that doesnt seen like alot, but I do agree on the point about oats beeing more filling..

100g uncooked when cooked is about a small bowl. I can get through about twice that along with a pound of chicken in curry sauce just for breakfast as a light snack. Hence my previous problems with being too fat.

100g uncooked is approximately 2/3 cup of uncooked rice -- when cooked, that's more than a plateful :)

Maybe my portion sizes are just skewed :)
