The place where I live is pretty hot hence Rice is a must at least once here. It helps keep the body cool. Although I would anytime prefer wheat because rice is fattening due to its high starch content. Also eating rice makes me very sleeeppppy :) What do you normally eat Rice or Wheat and why?

I eat rice most of the time, usually at lunch and dinner. I didn't know it helps to keep the body cool. Rice fills you up that's why you get sleepy after eating it.

Rice has its advantages too. It keeps the body cool and gets digested faster as compared to wheat.

I eat rice because the is my staple food... and wheat is quite expensive... but i try to cut down on my rice intake... and try to buy more bread made from wheat... they say that is more healthy for the body... but of course i cannot take rice out of my daily eating habit...

Yes, if it is your staple diet it definitely very difficult to reduce eating rice.

Oh I agree with you eating rice makes me feel sleepy but I still eat rice because from where I come from, rice is our staple food. We eat rice everyday. My husband and I only eat rice for lunch (our main meal). I would eat wheatbix and nestum a type of fiber meal with milk at night for dinner. My husband would eat wheat digestive biscuits with milk for dinner. Yesterday my husband's mum came back from another state she cooked noodles and we went over to her place to have lunch. I was full for that period of time but later in the evening I was hungry again. My husband had dinner appointment so I was alone at home. I went to cook one cup of rice and ate it all by myself !!! Just have to eat rice at least one meal....heeehee!!!
