    my diet calls for 2.0 ounces of brown rice for my final meal... how much oatmeal does that convert into? I don't have a scale and I've been doing 1/3 cup of brown rice for my final meal, and I just don't know how much oatmeal to eat instead because I don't have rice...

    i believe it would depend on the derivative of the carb speed...

    also consider the different temperature of brown rice and oatmeal, if you eat hotter oatmeal for example it will increase the Calories in your body

    yea, but if you eat it rly cold, your body will have to work to keep its temperature up/heat up the cold food, so it'll burn more calories that way. That's why you always put ice in your water, so you get shredded for the bitches. duh.

    I'm going to say that you burn like 1 or 2 extra calories this way.
