Is White Rice Bad For You?

With all the hoo-hah happening around about losing weight, eating right and eating healthy foods, we see most of the times that white rice is always declared as a bad choice. You will find a great number of sources and trials stating white rice as the bane of modern health.

However, from centuries rice is the staple food for half of the world’s population. For these people rice is the main component of all the three main meals of the day and sometimes in desserts as well. Also, many feel their meal is incomplete without a bowl of rice. Yet, this population has maintained a lean body and stayed fairly fit, until recently, with westernization of their food, and stressed lifestyle.

Also, I will have to confess that I was among those who believed that all brown stuff was perfect for perfect health and not the white stuff. But now I’m starting to think it’s not as evil as we most of the times portray it. Yes, I do agree, white rice is nutritionally stripped, but I truly believe that todays’ health issues are more to be blamed on our over-processed foods, vegetable oils and preservatives in the food and not just the starches in white rice.

Pilates has meant to me so much in and outside my profession. So here I take the opportunity to let you know why you should be trying Pilates. I found this super concise Infographic on benefits of Pilates.

Begin your day with a heavy breakfast is what we have been advised from decades. All is well till here. But does this mean that one should eat a high protein, high carbs and high calorie breakfast to keep the hunger pangs at bay for the rest of the day?

Breakfast is the first meal of the day, which is essential to start and keep our metabolism rate high. However, eating breakfast can be a wonderful key element depending upon how and what you eat for your breakfast.
