    Depends on your goals :dunno:

    In general, it's high-glycemic and over-processed though; brown rice is more nutritious from a fiber/vitamins perspective.

    what's good for your general health and what's good for gaining or losing weight is not necessarily the same. If you're new to lifting weights, you'll only gain muscle AND lose fat for a short time...soon afterwards you'll have to focus on one at a time.

    Brown rice just has more fiber, white rice actually has more vitamins and stuff because companies refortify the stuff they take out during processing so there is actually MORE in there. :o Calories are about the same in both versions.

    Personally, I don't eat rice when I'm cutting, or in general, because I can overeat it really easy since I love it so much.

    I was responding to Elfing's assertion that white rice is high glycemic and too processed. Brown rice is only 2-3 points lower on the GI and it doesn't feel much refined. White glutinious rice has a much higher GI however.

    i still use white rice even when im a week out from a show, i just mix it with something like sweet potato to slow it down. Brown rice makes you hold water. I use white rice year round
