rice is carbohydrates...if you eat too much, you will really get fat. on the other hand, it is better than bread, because bread has sugar, lard, or sometimes butter. i started dieting 3 weeks ago and lost considerable weight. i let go of rice, bread, other forms of carb and sugar. and in two weeks, i lost 8 lbs! isn't that amazing. yeah, carb can make us fat if we take too much of it. but at the same time, we also need carb, because they provide our body with needed energy. just not too much okay? :)

Rice is a good source of carbohydrates. I am also a rice eater. But I'm pretty skinny. I guess it's because I am really active, not to mention I have a high metabolism, so I burn calories quite fast. Don't deprive yourself of the nutrients your body needs. Maybe you just need to burn the calories more by exercising.

Rice does not content high fat ,it contents high starch .And eat many starch can really make you fat . But eat only a little for example a little bowl cann't make you fat . I like rice ,and eat rice 2 meals a day ,but I eat only a little bowl and I am still thin .So you can follow me .

Dear Nandhini, You are from India isn't it? Why do you get this doubt? Rice does not have fat only carbohydrtaes. We all eat at the maximum 2 meals a day ie rice twice a day. that too if you are a south Indian. If you are a north indian you would prefer to have wheat. Don't bother. All are same. We need starch for our daily energy. So you can rice but bring down the amount if you do not want to put on weight. Reduce your carbs intake and add more vegetables and fruits to your diet. All the best

Here in my country we are also rice eaters- we love it. It contains carbohydrates that is needed by our body to produce energy. It makes you fat if you eat too much of it and is not burn by your body. I think any foods when you eat them too much will get you to acquire additional pounds in your weight. =)
