    School me.

    The basic nutritional values like calories and carbohydrates seem to be pretty similar between the two.

    Would switching out to wheat bread for lunch sandwich and brown rice for dinner make much of a difference for fat loss?

    White rice has all the nutritional value stripped.

    the bleaching process to turn it white stripts the coating of fiber/fat around the grain causing it to by digested easier..giving that higher insulin response quicker

    a lot of wheat bread is just dyed that color and have artificial fiber "enhancers" in it-- this "fiber" does not necessarily have the same insulin response as 'natural' fiber, but also not quite like (read: as "bad" as) other sugars

    what you're after is whole grain

    Thanks. That's 2.5 weeks of not working out and eating the bear minimum.

    I look leaner when I'm not trying. FML.
