How many cups of rice do you eat in a meal? Is it one, two, three or more? The cups of rice I eat in a meal sometimes varies in what is being served and if I am hungry... I sometimes eat I think 5 cups of rice when I like the food or it tastes good and my lowest is like 2 or 3 when I am in a hurry for school or I don't have the appetite to eat and when we are out in a fast food restaurant with my family... I also know many people that eat much more what I am eating I think its about 6-7 cups... How about you?

Hi, arvintot. The most that I have in a meal is two cups. I can eat up to a plate full. When I am not all that hungry I will eat only half a plate full.

I usually eat 1 bowl of rice, on average or less. On some occasions i eat 2 bowls of rice if I'm wanting rice or something is good. Other occasions when i have more rice is when its fried rice.Yum! When you say 6 or 7 cups of rice how much would a cup be? I'm not really a rice lover unless i love the side dishes or the way its cooked. I;m not really into basic steamed rice.

I really don't know how much cups I eat since rice isn't usually served in cups when I eat at home. I take as much as I can finish most of the time and go back if its not enough. When dining out, I guess I would also order additional rice servings when it seems like the rice that I got served with at first isn't enough. (^_^")

Lately, I cut down my rice intake to one cup per meal, for healthy reasons and to lower my carbs. I used to eat two to three cups of rice before. I guess you can call me a rice lover. :-)

I eat about 2 - 3cups, especially if the viand was so yummy, i can't resist to eat, but if i know to myself that i am full already, i automatically stop my self.

One cup is usually one serving for me. I like things mixed in my rice like steamed vegetables or potatoe sausage. I don't eat it just plain, but use it as a filler instead of potatoes or pasta. I do like rice pudding though and we eat that as a snack food especially in the summer when it's warmer outside.

I eat 2 full plate of rice for each meal usually but i tried to reduce to only 1 half plate as per doctor suggestion. I really like rice and i don't think i can have any meal without a plate of rice at least although i have to reduce it to another 1/2. For me any meal would taste good when it combines with rice.

Hi, arvintot My limit is one cup. When the dish served with it is really good, I can eat about one and a half cup. Have a nice day!

I don't eat rice with every meal, but when I do eat it, I seem to down 2 servings without any problem. If I eat rice, it's usually in replacement of a meal and I have some veggies with it or some other kind of snack food. 2 servings, which is probably 2 cups (although I'm not sure on that..) fills me up pretty good.
