The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Brown Rice vs. White Rice

    I looked at the nutrition labels on a bag of brown and white rice, and they were exactly the same......well almost. Brown had less sodium or something, but that was the only difference. So why does everyone say to eat brown rice?

    It's lower Gycemic. Meaning it will raise blood sugar at a slower rate then white rice which is relativley high.

    Still brown rice is only marginally better than white rice. imo, the difference is not enough to be concerned. eat which ever one you like but in moderation.

    I dont know exactly why, but supposedly brown rice will help you feel fuller longer than white rice, plus the fiber, of course, is good for you. eating the brown rice will help keep your carb content lower in your diet.

    If you can get your hands on it at a reasonable price, wild rice has even more of the good stuff (fiber, low GI) than brown rice and has a nuttier sort of flavor. Brown rice mixed with wild rice looks and tastes pretty good...

    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.
