I will eat rice in moderation. I will use only half of a "serving" as my portion for white rice. I'm still testing the waters on brown rice.

I eat jasmine or wild rice occasionally, but wild rice is my preferred option! I process the higher fiber of the wild rice better!

I still eat white rice but, I make sure to measure it. Brown rice not as often unless it's in something really flavorful like Red Beans and Rice to hide the taste better. Wild rice varieties I eat it a lot. But, only the all wild types not the wild/regular mixes.

Helllllo. Totally eat rice. Runs like blood through my veins ;) But now I measure it when I do eat it. And avoid eating it everyday.

I like rice, but I don't really eat it that much anymore and I try to avoid eating it as much as I can... :)

I've always liked rice. I never liked brown rice, and with the arsenic in it- I'm glad to avoid it now. ;)

But fluffy white rice? Yes, I like it. I just don't eat much of it, since it's mostly empty carbs. I make it more "fun" by coating a 1/3 cup scoop with oil and then scooping the rice out onto my plate in a mound shape. In our house we call them "ice cream rice scoops". That's about all I allow myself- rice has a lot of calories!

Someday, when I've reached my weight loss goals, I'll probably eat a bit more... but for now I'm holding off.

I don't eat rice horribly often, but it is one of my favorite foods. I haven't noticed it effecting me much, so it's still there. It goes well with a lot of the meals I like to cook, so it's generally around.

I don't eat rice at all anymore, except for a very occasional sushi splurge ( yum). A good alternative is hemp hearts. It is even better than quinoa in the regards to being a protein and helps stabilize blood sugar and cravings. You don't even have to cook it, and it gives you that rice/ carb feeling. Can find it at any whole foods store.

I don't tend to eat it very often, but will splurge with sushi. It doesn't seem to do the same damage to my body as pasta does. At home I usually substitute a veggie or I use quinoa. Quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain. It works just like one, but is a really good protein source and I don't get any IR issues with it.

Thanks for the thread. This was one of my questions. I haven't eaten it since me diagnosis. Before I ate mainly brown rice (at home and if available as a request in when eating out). I will now try adding it back into my diet.

I practically don't eat it, but it's not like I've added it to the list of "forbidden foods". Every once in a while I'll eat a bit.

I (and the rest of my family since I'm the main cook, lol) are not currently eating rice. I'll probably add it back in eventually, but it'll be brown rice, no white rice. Right now, any recipe that goes well over rice, I'm subbing cauliflower that I've either mashed or "riced" with a food processor. I've also heard that quinoa is a good rice sub, and it's a complete protein. But I haven't tried it yet.

I eat rice in any variety, although at home I usually only eat brown rice. The naturopath told me that rice is one of the best foods I can eat so I eat it nearly every day.

I'm not a huge rice fan, I eat it occasionally. I have switched my family from white rice to brown rice though, when I do eat it.

Yes I still eat White Rice, though my fav is still Wild Rice and jasmine rice - can't stand brown rice as my body just doesn't like it for some reason

I don't have an issue with the carb counts from the rice effecting my glucose control I tend to pair it well enough that the effect is minimal
