White rice has higher GI than brown rice/cracked wheat and hence it causes less insulin spike. But why paleo ppl believe that white rice is better than brown rice or cracked wheat?

Simple. It's a grain. Like wheat, rye, corn, and other grains, brown rice has some funky, harmful stuff in it. It's not as harmful as the gluten and gliadins in modern dwarf wheat, but it can cause problems. Phytates aren't the only issue. As... (more)

I'm a fan of beans and rice. It really fills me up nicely, like I feel satiated afterwards which can be hard to do when you have a crazy fast metabolism like mine. Also, those are both gluten free, if that means anything for your gut.

It's the same for me, I feel more satiated with more carbs like a bit of white rice or potato/sweet potato. I don't even know why but I assume it's because some people just function better on more carbs.
