What Is Meant By A ‘Rice Diet Plan?’
From a nutrition standpoint, rice can be used in a weight loss diet too. A ‘rice diet’ does not mean there is only rice in the diet. But what is actually means is a diet with minimally processed whole grains. The rice diet basically focuses on three criteria:
- Consumption of minimally processed whole grains
- Consumption of fibre
The Healthy Advantages
- The consumption of whole grains is a healthier option, because it’s packed with different nutrients including protein, fibre, B vitamins, antioxidants and also trace elements (iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium).
- As we know, whole grains contain a higher amount of fibre and this helps to reduce hunger pangs by slowing down digestion. The feeling of being full also helps to reduce the total consumption of food and helps keep one satiated for longer.
- The presence of vitamin B in grains improves the overall metabolism by increasing the food metabolic intermediate like cofactor, coenzymes etc.
- The consumption of a higher amount of whole grains, fruits and vegetables extract the overall body toxins by increasing the alkalinity of the body. It also improves gut health.
