I add a lot of veggies to rice. I bought a WOK and it is great, I love it. Kinda makes cooking up some veggies fun. And adding healthy spices like turmeric or ginger really ups the flavor.

That's good point, Celest! Make it a healthy stir-fry; lots of vegetables and the right portions of meat with your rice!

I dont think rice is the enemy...the Chinese eat plenty of it and obesity in China comes from McDonalds. The Chinese eat rice but generally not dessert. They also dont eat tons of meat with their rice, choosing loads of veggies with their rice. So if you love rice, have it in moderation with loads of veggies. Someone suggested stir fry, and its a great suggestion.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

I've eaten something called Pasta Slim. They are very low calorie noodles. I enjoyed them, but I wouldn't want to have to depend on them. I like being able to feel I can get good food most places and eat it in reasonable quantities. Low calorie versions can encourage eating portions that are too big and make it hard to ear moderately in all venues. Overeating involves too much volume as well as too many calories.

Good to know. Someone else from one of my other teams told me about "Miracle Noodles" and how it is better than your normal noodles. Any one care to discuss???

My family no longer eats white rice at all. We have found that we like wild rice, brown rice and our new favorite is Quinoa. Quinoa is cooked the same way as rice, but the really great nutirition thing about it - it is a COMPLETE source of protein. You still have to control portion size since it is so nutrient dense, but we love the flavor and the versatility.

GREAT conversation here. I had rice for dinner last night. Talk about timing. I love rice too. But yesterday was a bad day for eating. I had the rice for dinner and I had 11 Chocolate Chip Cookies. Talk about binging! Not today though. :)

A single serving of white rice is 1/2 cup cooked. the majority of us eat more than that. It's a bad starch/carb. I substitute mine by using quinoa or brown rice. If i should be in a situation where rice is served I only ahve one or 2 bites.

Experiment with the type of rice you eat. It isn't necessary to eat only brown rice, although you may learn to like it or even prefer it. Some people find that they are more satisfied with less brown rice; some don't. Give yourself the chance to learn OVER TIME. And three weeks or even months is not very long in the scheme of things.

Rice can be a great part of a nutritious diet. Just switch to brown and eat a single serving, or no more than one cup. I love rice so I definitely always have a cup. =)

I agree with Alisha, no reason to cut rice out of your diet completely. Half a cup is a serving, enjoy that or even a full cup if you wish. Just be sure to track it, also try brown rice instead of white, if you aren't already. It offers more nutrition and fiber than white rice.

To give freely without expectation is a true gift.

No matter what someone tells you to do, if the willingness to do something different isn't there, it won't make a difference. You have to be very clear with yourself that eating too much rice is painful to you and you might have to do some things that aren't comfortable to get over the urges. The only way to get over the urge to eat too much is to eat a small-to-moderate amount. Eat between 1/2 cup to a cup of rice at any one meal and no more, no matter what. It might takes weeks or even months to get used to that, but it will be worth the effort. Just keep reminding yourself you aren't starving yourself or really depriving yourself to do that.

You are not alone! Every successful weight loser and maintainer has had to learn to limit food somehow. You can do it, too.

What I've learned with the things I crave are portion and moderation! You don't need to cut rice completely out of your "diet" but you can instead make smaller, well-balanced portions. Or even just try to make a little less rice each time you make it. Moderation is the key!
