Rice isn't unhealthy at all. Personally, I use brown rice and manage my portions.

Lots of slender people throughout the world eat plenty of rice. Why don't you have one serving of your favorite rice daily and one serving of brown rice? Just think of them as totally different foods. That works for my husband. White biscuits are his food of choice; he'll eat whole wheat ones, but he just thinks of them as different food. They don't take the place of his favorite.

Of course, watch the amounts of oil and increase the veggies. Best wishes!

watch your portion sizes - do more exercise
and yes eat your rice - and eat more vegetables which are already in your diet and keep on eating more fish and chicken

Do like a diabetic, limit the rice, but cover it with triple vegetables. Eat veggies with every meal. Watch the oil and fat.

How do I eat healthier if I am Vietnamese? My staple diet includes white Jasmine rice. That is something I refuse to give up. I make everything with rice. How can I eat healthier?
