Lose Weight Eating Rice

Yes, you can lose weight eating rice. Here are 3 different ways to do it.

1. A Big, Heaping Serving 1 x Day

I imagine that if you are asking how to lose weight eating rice, it’s because you love rice.

You love it enough to want to keep eating and enjoying it AND be healthy. You’ve probably heard how rice is bad for you, and, that it sits in the naughty bin with all the other weight gaining foods (it’s actually a pretty big bin).

But people can lose weight eating chocolate, and so it’s possible to do so with any food. It all depends on how you manage the food.

A Big Serving

Nobody likes eating just a little, we want to enjoy our favorite foods and so to be able to eat a nice, big bowl of rice, we’ll have to make room for it.

Let’s say you want to eat a large portion at the end of the day. It would mean you would do one of 3 things:

1 – Eat less food than usual for breakfast and lunch.
2 – Eat little to no carbs for breakfast and lunch
3 – Exercise a lot (like a 2 hour walk in the morning)

This is the first way to lose weight eating rice, by really enjoying a big portion and feeling satisfied and full afterwards.

2. No Carbs: One Normal sized Bowl/Day

In the last example, we had you eating a giant bowl at the end of the day but compensating for it by modifying the other 2 meals in some way, where you could still eat carbs.

For this second method, you’d be on a low carb diet – eating mostly chicken, meat, nuts, fruit and vegetables etc. – and your only carbs would come from your bowl of rice at any meal you’d like.

As long as carbs are consistently low, the carbs you’d be taking in from the rice won’t affect your diet efforts all that much.

Your insulin will still be low enough and that’s what it’s all about. (See explanation and theory here.)

3. Small amounts at each Meal

Like I just mentioned above, losing weight is about insulin and one of the ways we can make sure it doesn’t get all that high is to limit how many carbs we take in at one time.

Eat an entire box of donuts and you’ve released the monster. No going back from that. Just stay sober the next day and get back on the horse. But …

… eat a small portion of something you really enjoy, say rice pudding (see recipe below), and you can keep your insulin under control and allow your metabolism to spend more time in fat burning mode rather than having to deal with blood sugar congestion all day long.

Rice pudding is especially tasty, and eating a small portion 3x day gives you something to look forward to every couple of hours. If you do choose to eat rice at every meal, try to make it the only source of carbs you have that day, aside from vegetables and some, low glycemic fruit like berries and apples etc.

Easy Rice Pudding Recipe
    • 1 cup rice
    • 6 cups milk
    • 1 TBSP butter
    • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Place all 4 ingredients into a large saucepan. Set stove to medium-low. Cover.
  • Stir every 10 minutes, and don’t let it boil. It should simmer for about an hour before it’s ready. The rice should be soft and fully cooked and the pan should be a tad liquidy.
  • Adjust stove setting and cook time to make sure it’s cooked slowly and not under/over cooked.
  • Refrigerate overnight

It’s pretty easy and tasty too.

I suggest serving it cold with cinnamon and berries.

You may think that eating rice pudding is eating dessert because it’s tasty but in terms of weight loss – carb control – it’s still just rice. Milk, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and berries are not high glycemic foods at all.

Wrapping Up

Rice is not a bad food, and you can lose weight with it, in a number of ways. Eat too much too often and you will likely gain weight unless you happen to be training like an Olympian.

Remember that the mechanism is to keep insulin low and that there are a number of ways to make that happen, in order to slim down.
