Does eating rice everyday Makes you fat?

 Does eating rice everyday Makes you fat?

Most of people have myth about rice that eating rice everyday will cause you to increase belly fat all by itself, so let me make it clear all my friends .


Eating rice everyday won't make you fat "Its not the rice but the amount we intake make you fat".

have you ever seen a fat "Chinese", No right, then you need to explore more about rice and clear your myths.

Point 1: 

As we know Cooked white rice is digested very quickly and releases energy to blood in bursts of glucose. Sudden release of glucose or spike of glucose puts pancreas under stress.

Pancreas is not able to guess the amount of insulin required due to sudden rush of glucose.It ends up over producing insulin.  Insulin is a fat deposit hormone.

If the quickly released glucose is not absorbed at the same speed by muscles as glycogen, it will be deposited as fat around waist.

To avoid quick release of glucose, choose brown rice over white rice.Slow down the release of glucose further by eating tons of fibre - methi, green fibrous non-starchy vegetables
such as bitter gourd, cucumber, radish, capsicum, green chillies, coriander leaves, spinach, cabbage, broccoli,  cauliflower, beans, peas, ridge gourd, bottle gourd, snake gourd, etc..

Bitter gourd has only 4gm of carbohydrate and 3gm of fiber for 100gm of its weight.

Point 2:

Carb by itself doesn't make you fat if your calorie intake is below your maintenance calorie. Fat is a form of energy storage and it only happens if your body doesn't need this extra energy.

When you eat rice, they will be broken down into glucose first. Then this glucose will be absorbed by your ceilings for immediate energy. Any excess energy will be stored in your liver and muscle for glycogen as energy source.

 After the glycogen is full (2000 calories on average), your body will store the extra into body fat. So eating rice by itself without eating excess calories will not make you gain belly fat or fat.

 Point 3:

Another thing you need to consume rice as per our body type , ectomorph (fast metabolism), mesomorph, or endomorph (slow metabolism). So if you falls under mesomorph, or endomorph don't consume too much rice as your body metabolism is slow.

You will never see fat or belly in a person who consumes lot of rice and exercise a lot, as we know lifestyle is one of the most important part that contributes to your health.

Key to lose belly fat is maintaining an active lifestyle and a healthy diet, consistency is paramount and building block of a great physique.
