Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?

I probably wouldn't eat the tofu that often, but honestly, I don't really care for it anyway. If you really like it and don't seem to be having a bad reaction, I think a smallish portion would be fine as part of your 20%. If you notice any... (more)

If you are a rice-eater, which one is better, white rice or brown rice? I was just wondering because I read somewhere that brown rice is worse because it's covered with a whole grain. Is it true that the outer covering is a grain?

chipaleo 0 · January 26, 2013 at 9:18 PM

Thriving Asian countries have eaten white rice for a long time. I heard the outer part is fed to the chickens. Brown rice is a new "health food." Avoid it. Also, Mark Sisson says wild rice is okay in moderation.

If it's white rice, there shouldn't be much if any, as the antinutrients were in the part that was removed, so it's not very different from eating a load of sugar. It's possible, though I've never heard of puffed brown rice.
