But I do have to warn you. What you’re about ready to read will probably be the exact opposite of what you’ve been told about losing belly fat. You won’t hear this from your local personal trainer and you won’t read about it inside any fitness magazine.
These 3 Food Lies uncover exactly why white rice can be BETTER THAN BROWN RICE for your health and fat loss by BOOSTING your metabolic rate and REBOOTING your fat burning hormones.
Below, you’ll discover exactly why brown rice may be not be the better choice than white rice, and you’ll also learn how eating white starchy carbs can help keep your metabolism healthy and consistently accessing fat as its primary fuel source on a daily basis...
Food Lie #1: You’ve Been Lied To About The Fiber
It’s pretty common knowledge in the health and fitness industry that you should always choose to eat fibrous starchy carbs instead of pure white starches if you’re goal is to lose belly fat.
The most popular example is replacing white rice with brown rice because brown rice has more fiber. The main difference between white and brown rice is the processing and nutritional content. Only one layer (the outermost) is removed when producing brown rice.
When white rice is produced, everything is removed leaving only the “starchy” component. This means pretty much all of the key vitamins and minerals in white rice are lost including the fiber.
Now you can see why we’ve been told to use brown rice instead of white rice. If you’re trying to eat healthy balanced meals and keep blood sugar stable throughout the day, and you’re an exerciser, this is a great choice.
But each cup of brown rice contains only 3.5 grams of fiber for every 45 grams of complex carbohydrates. This means you would have to eat FIVE cups of brown rice (225 grams of extra carbs) just to get HALF of your daily fiber intake. Not to mention it would add nearly an extra thousand calories per day to your daily calorie intake.
Now you can see why trying to get more fiber from starches is really a waste of time and could make you fatter if you’re not careful.
The small amount of fiber you get is a nice bonus side effect, but it’s NOT what healthy starch intake is for. It’s another food lie. You should easily be able to get all the adequate fiber you need on a daily basis from moderate amounts of whole fruits and lots of cruciferous vegetables.
Remember to always consume starches based on your metabolic needs, NOT because they have more fiber. Save your starchy carbs to fuel your daily activities, recover faster from exercise, and keep your metabolic rate at healthy levels.
And make sure you always combine them with a complete protein and veggies whenever possible. This will prevent unhealthy blood sugar spikes and help keep your body in a fat burning state.
And believe it or not, many times the pure glucose based starch found in white rice is BETTER for your hormones and metabolic health than brown rice. You just have to make sure you’re consuming all-natural white starches the RIGHT way by using the nutrition strategy I show you on the next page.
Food Lie #2: You’ve Been Lied to About the Glycemic Index
(it’s a HOAX)
Another misleading reason people think they need to avoid foods like white rice in order to burn off body fat is because it has a higher glycemic index than brown rice.
In case you didn’t know, the glycemic index attaches a number to food, which indicates how much it will spike your insulin levels. The higher the number, the higher the insulin spike. The lower the number, the lower the insulin spike.
And since it’s nearly impossible to burn fat in the presence of high insulin, it only makes sense to choose lower glycemic carbs, like brown rice, instead of white rice every chance you get.
However, when you combine a higher glycemic food choice with other foods, and you take into account portion size, this number basically becomes irrelevant – because both of these factors will impact your body’s insulin response.
So even though low glycemic carb choices are typically healthy, the glycemic index number itself can be very misleading.
Another example is fruit. The riper the fruit, the more sugar it has, which means the glycemic index changes as the fruit ripens.
As long as you control your portion sizes and combine your high carb foods with quality animal proteins and cruciferous vegetables, the glycemic index shouldn’t be a concern.
I’m not saying you can go around snacking or binging on high glycemic, processed carbs without fat-storage. But be careful of “trendy” diet plans that tout they’ll keep you in “the fat burning zone” with the glycemic index. It’s another nutrition MYTH and food LIE.
In fact, you CAN eat loads of your favorite high glycemic foods without fat storage – especially if you’re an exerciser. You just have to be "smart" about it by using the propriety carb cycling method I show you on the next page.
Food Lie #3: You’ve Been Lied to About White Starches
(your body NEEDS glucose)
Even though brown rice is generally considered healthier than white rice, it contains potentially harmful anti-nutrients which can cause digestive stress in some people and block certain mineral absorption.
For example, the phytic acid found in fibrous whole grain cereals and wheat breads can block the absorption of minerals and may adversely affect protein digestibility. Lectins, found in wheat and legumes, can be harmful on the digestive tract, negatively affect the immune system, and may inhibit protein absorption.
So many times the glucose molecules found in pure white starches are MUCH less problematic than starches like brown rice that contain these “anti-nutrients”.
Believe it or not, your body was designed to run on glucose from high carb foods like white rice. Every cell in your body, even your brain, utilizes glucose.
In fact, glucose is one of the oldest evolutionary fuels on the planet. Our bodies have been using glucose as a primary fuel source since the caveman days. And get this. On average, only 1 out of every 120 calories from glucose gets stored as fat. So 95% of the time your body burns up or glucose immediately after you consume it.
Glucose also has been shown to suppress your hunger hormone ghrelin to help you control your appetite and those nasty late night cravings. And guess what? Your favorite high carb foods like white rice contain the purest glucose molecules on the planet.
Now I know this sounds like the exact OPPOSITE of what you’ll normally hear, but this is how glucose based starches help you burn more fat and calories every time you eat and exercise.
In other words, by strategically eating MORE "starchy" carbs you’ll burn them more efficiently as a fuel source and STOP storing them as fat on your body.
You just have to make sure you’re eating your favorite carbs based on YOUR activity level and metabolic needs or all of this could backfire on you.
For example, if you’re sedentary you simply do not need as many white starches and ripe fruits as somebody who exercises intensely on a consistent basis.
Here are 3 examples to help you make the RIGHT carb choices
based on your lifestyle to KEEP your body burning fat.
- Sedentary People (no exercise or activity): Limit intake of starches and ripe fruits. Stick with smaller amounts of starchy carbs like squash, quinoa, and slow cook oatmeal unless it’s your cheat day. Moderate amounts of fruits like berries and cherries are great carb choices as well.
- Active (moderate exercise 3-4x per week): Consume moderate amounts of starchy carbs like sweet potatoes, brown and black rice, lentils, and slow cook oats. Fruits are great choices too, but try to consume your ripe fruits and starches on exercise days to enhance all the benefits listed above.
- Exerciser or Endurance Athlete (very active 5-7 days of the week): Most people who fall into this category (weight lifters, high intensity exercisers, and endurance athletes) are severely carb depleted and need MORE white starches and ripe fruits in their diets.
Potatoes, white rice, and ripe bananas are 3 of the best choices you can use if you fall into this category. Feel free to eat any of the carbs listed above from groups 1 and 2 as well.
These are some of the BEST carb choices you can make to get all the fat-burning benefits of carbs, WITHOUT fat storage from your carb intake.
Now you just have to make sure you use the strategy I share on the next page so you avoid carb-based fat-spillover.
Simply put, if you eat carbs with the wrong foods - at the wrong times, you’ll STORE fat. If you eat carbs with the right foods at the right times, you’ll BURN fat.
All three of the "unknown" facts above are part of a unique and proprietary nutrition method I call The 4 Cycle Solution. The is a revolutionary carb cycling method that gives you the flexibility to eat the foods that you love while strategically using carbs, and all your favorite cheat foods, as a way to rapidly speed up your metabolic rate, preserve lean muscle tissue, and burn an INSANE amount of fat – all at the same time.
But unfortunately, those who don’t have access to this information will continue to consume carbs the wrong way, wreak havoc on their metabolisms, suppress their fat-burning hormones, and STOP their bodies from using fat as their main source of fuel on a daily basis.
BUT I DO HAVE TO GIVE YOU A FRIENDLY WARNING:
