    I've only been able to find a good calorie breakdown for sushi, not anything that showed the fat and protein and all that jazz. Overall it seems like you can eat a nice portion of it without having too many calories, and I've read that wasabi is also pretty healthy for you.

    Anyways....any sushi people got a good link?

    I have wondered this also. I assume it depends on the roll and can vary from place to place.

    Its really going to depend on the place, IMO. the all-u-can-eat place near me has pretty big pieces of fish and a good sized rice ball under it.

    It also depends on the amount of soy sauce you're using, too

    Yeah, that's true.

    I tend to not care for the uber saltyness of soy sauce and go for wasabi, as well as small rolls.

    Avoid anything with tempura in the name or description and you should be good to go. Have you tried asking a local sushi bar for nutrition info? I'm pretty sure they are required to show you.

    Sashimi is not that bad, but white rice is pretty bad calorie-wise since the stickier the rice, the more calories it has.

    I should try that, I make my own sushi. But it's so fucking good this way !
    After checking, the difference doesn't seem as big as I though. White rice (non-sushi type) even seems to have less cals than brown rice.

    the sushi that comes in like an 8 pack at trader joes has a macronutrient breakdown.

    can't remember what it was though.

    Sashimi plus a bowl of rice FTW. You can' get any more natural and wholesome then cuts of raw tuna, yellowtail and salmon.

    Sushi rolls with cream cheese, fried shrimp, etc were created to satisfy americans obese way of life :ugh: Stay away from those!!!

    Granted the sushi-grade rice may not be the best, but it's a lot better alternative then most restaurant foods out there. For me, it's must with sashimi.

    Here's nutri info for sushi rice using short grain rice:
    Nutritional information(per 1/4 cup): 92 calories, 1.3 grams protein, 21 grams carbohydrates, 0.1 grams fat, 0.01 percent calories from fat, no cholesterol, 648 milligrams sodium

    This carb cycling shit is killing my sushi intake. I don't really care for the americanized shit either.

    Why no sugar in there? We do put sugar in the rice vinegar (which is mixed in with the rice), LOTS of sugar.

    What do you think about this way of cooking brown rice? Supposed to be better then cooking it the conventional way.

    I like it and it's more filling than sashimi.

    I don't know how much you eat at sushi places but honestly, the amount of rice we put into each roll is maybe the size of a racquetball or less. And as for the nigiri, maybe the size of half my thumb. What I'm trying to say is that while you are trying to go the healthy route by going with brown rice, I'm pretty sure the amount of regular rice in the sushi isn't that huge of a difference as in terms of nutrition.

    Though we don't serve brown rice at our restaurant, I'm pretty sure they still mix the rice vinegar (that's mixed with a shitload of sugar and salt, I make it every now and then so I know) with the brown rice to give it the flavor and right texture so you're still getting the same amount of sodium and sugar as the white rice.

    And if you're going to pay that much money for something that good, might as well indulge a little bit cause hell man, you're paying a shitload!

    Yeah, and if I really wanted to "fill up" I could always get sashimi with a side of rice instead.
