White Rice Versus Brown

Wondering why BP diet suggests white rice as a training day carb versus brown?

  • Brown rice prevents protein digestion and lowers nitrogen balance (a marker of muscle retention).

     so, it's only because of muscle building... if a person who wasn't training was to eat rice, brown would be the way to go?

    Brown rice has rancidity issues due to its natural fat content & is shipped around in clear plastic bags or containers.
  • and white does not? I guess it's best to stick to organic potatoes & sweet potatoes


  • I think sweet potato would be preferred tho, but you have to eat really much to get the starchy carb amount that you want on a carb-refill day.

    Personally I got some gastral issues from sweet potato, I think maybe candida likes SP too. Much better with rice for me.

    If brown rice is worse than white rice, why is brown rice "greener" than white rice?

  • White rice also has a higher glycemic index, so it makes more sense to include it post-workout when the muscle tissue is more sensitive to glucose.
