Do you eat rice?

With my constant adjusting of my diet and my constant questions filling up PaleoHacks...someone recommended the "Perfect Health Diet" which states that rice is a suitable safe starch. Do you eat rice? What kind do you prefer (brown, wild, white loaded with butter ;])? Do you eat it regularly? What are your thoughts about rice in the Paleo diet?

Not daily but i don't avoid it. I love rice(white tilda) I wen't very low carb when i went primal, i avoided rice & potatoes & i felt amazing, the little bit of weight i was carrying fell off effortlessly. I now consume white rice & potatoes with no weight gain & still feel freakin amazing!! Looking back now it was probably more to do with stopping eating bread, pasta, cereal & other junk "foods" that made the big difference, the low carb just accelerated my fat loss a little.

I think it depends on the rice. Short rice when I make something like Korean food I used 1.5 cups water to 1 cup rice. Long grain rice is drier, so the 1:1 is fine.

My hubby calls them Pseudo Echo rolls (that was an 80's band). They would never pass for "real" spring rolls, but you just twirl them in luke warm water for like 30 seconds and they soften up. Put whatever filling in them. I fry them in a pan, though I suppose deep frying would be nice too.

I don't add any to mine at home either, but I know some is usually added in restaurants. You are incorrect that the sugar is what makes it sticky, Toni. The sugar and vinegar are added as flavorings. The type of rice used is very starchy and gelatinous, so even if you add no sugar it is still sticky. Regardless, all of the recipes I've ever seen for sushi rice only call for about 1-2 T. of sugar for 6+ cups of cooked rice. At the high end that would come about to about 1/2 t. of sugar per entire sushi roll--and that would be for a fairly large roll. "Full of sugar" is quite the overstatement.

I learned to make sticky rice by soaking short grain white rice half an hour (or more) before cooking to make it "sticky"... I've never added sugar to mine. (Although I don't really eat rice anymore.)

Do you mean sugar is added to sushi rice? The shorter grain rice have more amylopectin so higher GI, more starchier so stick together.

The problem with sushi rice is that it's full of sugar -- that's why it's so sticky. If you just get a bowl of rice though, no sugar!

This. I think it's fine if you like it but it does nothing for me. Actually, starch in general does nothing; I prefer mostly non-starchy veggies.

I follow the PHD fairly closely (save for generally one off-plan meal a week). I do eat rice, typically 3-4x a week. As the Jaminets' recommend, I go with white rice since the anti-nutrients in rice are predominantly found in the bran. As far as my thoughts about rice, I tend to agree with Paul and Kurt Harris. The latter recently wrote:

My list [of safe starches] is white potatoes, sweet potatoes, white rice and bananas. If more exotic fare like plantains and taro is available to you, that is fine, too. Except for white rice, these are all whole food starch sources with good mineral and micronutrient content that have been eaten in good health for thousands of years in many environments by genetically diverse populations. Many of these plants have spread far from their biomes of origin and serve as staples for populations who have adopted them with success over just the past few thousand years.

These starchy plant organs or vegetables are like night and day compared to most cereal grains, particularly wheat. One can eat more than half of calories from these safe starches without the risk of disease from phytates and mineral deficiencies one would have from relying on grains.

White rice is kind of a special case. It lacks the nutrients of root vegetables and starchy fruits like plantain and banana, but is good in reasonable quantities as it is a very benign grain that is easy to digest and gluten free.

Now that the cold weather is here, yes! It goes in my soups. I'm not a huge rice eater otherwise, preferring potatoes for starch these days.

I also eat rice noodles now too. The rice spring roll wrappers are fun to play with. I fill these with bok choy, pork and/or chicken, carrots and sprouts. Infinite possibilities!

I eat white rice with a lot of butter and it does not spike my blood sugar. Without butter it does, however. Same goes for sweet potatoes.

edit: Just found this for sweet potatoes :

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jnume/2011/584832/

Samples prepared by boiling had the lowest GI (41???50), while those processed by baking (82???94) and roasting (79???93) had the highest GI values.

I have added white rice a few times a week and have actually broken through a plateau. My favorite is CalRose brand. I boil 4 quarts of salted water in a 6-qt. pot. Then I add 1 1/2 cups rice slowly to keep water boiling, Let it boil rapidly for 15 min. uncovered, then drain through sieve. It is fluffy with well separated grains, slightly firm to bite.

I find white rice delicious, plain. My food reward pathway must be wired really low -- the stuff tastes rich and nutty to me. Mmm. :)

That said, I don't eat it often because it puts weight on me, and it also stimulates my appetite. Whenever I add it regularly I have to fight constant hungries and urges to do the kitchen crawl.

I don't eat white rice, but I do include it in my three-year-old twins' diet. I am slowly transitioning them to either a Paleo Diet or at least a whole foods diet with limited grain and legume (not sure yet where we'll land). I make the distinction between them and myself based on our need for carbs. I am still trying to lose the last ten pounds of pregnancy weight and have had a history of hypoglycemia, so I definitely don't need to eat rice (although I don't think a bite here or there is a problem). I believe young children have a much higher need for carb energy than most adults, however, and mine are extremely active with lots of outdoor play and very little screen time. I'm also a single mother and a PhD student, so money is tight. Rice and potatoes are cheap and filling along with a good slab of fatty meat and a few healthy veggies.

I don't eat rice unless I'm going out for sushi (about once a month), but I don't see any major problem with it. I avoid it because my goal right now is to lose weight and I do much better if I stay away from grains entirely--probably because I am far more likely to overeat rice than the rich meaty curries I would be putting on top of it.

Rice is not a staple in my diet, but I do eat it on occasion. It's not nutritionally dense like other foods, but hardly deleterious to one's health in moderate amounts. It's not for everybody; obviously VLC paleo won't eat it, nor will the paleo folks with a fetish for maximizing nutrients per bite.

I read PHD last January, and it really spoke to me. Prior to that I had been first low carb, then Paleo, and had reaped numerous health benefits. But on PHD I feel great. I was never a big rice fan, but it has become my go to safe starch. I prefer basmati types, although I accidently bought a 20 pound bag of what turned out to be sushi rice at the asian market, and we ate that too.

The hubby and I like variety in our safe starches so we do eat rice. It varies from about half cup cooked per day up to 2 times a day (per person) to some weeks with no rice but we do other starches such as:

1) plantains

2) sweet potatoes

3) potatoes

4) bananas (max 2 a day, usually 1)

We like to vary our rice - basmati, jasmine, wild rice, arborio though we end up having mostly some variety of white rice.

We add lots of butter or ghee to our rice when we eat it!

I eat "Texmanti" white rice several times a week following Perfect Health Diet. Without starches I was uncomfortably constipated most of the time. I also eat potatoes, sweet and white. I used to eat tons of salads, but have cut the greenry waay back. I ususally have some spinach available and a little lettuce. I eat a lot of butter, cream and meat of all colors. My systems are all "go" now.

I prefer white potatoes but I eat white rice everynow and then.

Fatty meat plus a starch. Satisfies completely.

I think rice is fine if your body is fine with it. Unfortunately mine is not. It makes my blood sugar all crazy. I have a stronger reaction to rice than just about any food there is. A stupid Snickers bar doesn't put me into a coma the way rice does. I will indulge in a few pieces of sushi every now and then but otherwise it's a no go for me.

from one of the comments above, maybe you could try adding butter to it and it wouldn't have this effect?

I've never tested my blood sugar, but I wonder if that's why rice makes me so darn hungry?

Reading PHD was very inspiring and I delighted in the novelty of white rice and potatoes???I made Jaminet's gnocchi which is very good, esp. made with sweet potatoes. trouble was, it didn't sit too well at first. Bloating, hunger, esp. when paired with protein... Now I'm okay with a quarter cup of organic sweet white rice, once a week, served with pan-fried salmon, topped with rice vinegar and kelp flakes. it feels very satisfying, as long as the portion is small, and it doesn't give me any problems. This is after being Primal for 5 months.

Almost never (unless I'm having a really bad craving or it's a special occasion or there's no other gluten free options) I use cauliflower rice instead.

I eat it a few times a week, usually about a quarter or a half cup dry, served with fish.

I usually use basmati rice, toast it up with garlic in olive oil, and then cook with half chicken broth and half water. I either add frozen spinach while it's still cooking and decrease the water a bit to offset, or add fresh spinach at the end of cooking and just stir it in and let it wilt and steam a bit in the rice.

I certainly need a "brown carb" to feel happy and healthy. I do vary. When I have it I have brown basmati rice mixed with wild rice only. Otherwise I eat baked potato and baked sweet potato always in both cases with skin.

I read that rice is a grass, so why would this food be off limits on the Paleolithic Diet?
I eat rice at least 4 times a week. I also have white potatoes with lots of butter.

What I enjoyed about rice was being able to dig through vast mounds of it. At the moment I simply don't see any need to eat rice, though if I'd probably not be too concerned if I happened to find myself in a situation where it was the main energy source available.

I don't eat White rice but White rice flour based bread is my cheating staple(!)

I personally don't eat any grain, white rice for that matter, not for any other reason, but because I can't digest grains well. If you don't have problem digesting rice, I would think "why not?"

I think what's good about white rice is that it's easy on Kidneys. As ben61820 said above, Asians eat white rice daily basis, often every 3 meals a day! I heard that, in Asia, White rice based porridge is served for patients. They believe that it's easy to digest=let go down. It's obviously easy on Kidneys. Whereas Brown rice is harsh and hard on kidneys.
