I am from the Philippines and our staple food here is rice. I just wanna know your advice on what meals I can eat with rice that will help lose weight. I also wanna know the proper amount of rice that I can include in this diet. Help me please! Your comments will be appreciated. :)

Hi im from Phils too so i understand what you mean. Try brown rice instead or just have it in moderation, like if you're having 2 cups then just have one instead and have more greens with your meal. And if you can, try to avoid having any at dinner, rice that is. Hope it helps.

I have 60g of brown rice maybe add a lil bit of vegetable/chicken stock and add a few stir fry veggies like baby corn, mange tout, mushrooms, beansprouts ect bit of chicken (1 portion skinless) or if u like pork try 1 pork steak but cut all the fat off, add your own herbs and spices for seasoning

I stick to brown rice or as we make it in Hawaii "hapa" (means half in Hawaiian) rice. 1/2 white and brown to wean yourself off of white. Try maybe cutting back a little bit at a time. A healthy serving size for rice is a 1/2 cup for me. Of course to fill in the hunger gap ill add extra protein or veggies! As a typical Midwest gal though, sweet potatoes are my weakness!
