The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    white rice vs brown rice

    alright guys, i need some help with my dieting. i am on a rather low glycemic diet and i've always seem recommendations for brown rice over white but today i checked the glycemic index for both and there isnt a really significant difference. white rice seems to be pretty low glycemic as well.
    Rice, white.............................. 58
    Rice, brown............................. 55
    so why do people prescribe brown over white?

    can someone also tell me how they measure there food(before or after cooking)? i also feel like im getting a lot of misinformation regarding protein content in the meats that i eat. for example, in different editions of FLEX, they stated that 6 oz of cooked chicken breast is =52g protein. then in another they say 8oz of chicken (not stated cooked or uncooked)=48. this might depend on if its cooked or not. so when reading labels for our meats are we supposed to go by raw or cooked? thanks a lot for the help.

    in fact, according to this site they listed white long grain rice to be low blycemic whereas brown rice is listed under the medium category.

    brown rice = more nutrients, not processed/refined like white rice, more fiber, tastier!

    In general weigh your food before cooking, especially in regards to meat.

    Some nutrition labels on things such as rice, popcorn, etc. will give you a cooked measurement as well as uncooked measurements.

    This site should help you determine the calorie/macronutrient content of most foods.

    frag the brown rice.
    tastes like crap and too much work to chew.
    It's all about white rice.
    The nutritional diff between white and brown rice ain't all that important anyways.
    Just eat other foods.

    The type of rice is more important than white or brown.

    Stick with long grain (Basmati) rice instead of instant or parbroiled.

    Of course all else being equal brown is better than white.

    I've been mixing brown with the long grain/wild rice mixes, like Uncle Ben's or Mahatma. Sure makes it tastier.
