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.
