How many cups of rice can you eat in one meal?

It is of course encough for a man to eat one cup of rice .But I saw a person who used to take minimum 3cups of rice ,beyond vegetable curries, fruitsand sweets madeupof green gram powder mixedwith sugar and cocoanut chips each weigning 100 grams . that person used to take atlest 20 to 25 ssweets after taking rice, and then take atlest 20 mango fruits in one meal. It is amazing but it is fact. I saw such persons in my 20s. Later I couldnot see such persons till now. So eating of rice becamne a fashion,due to involvement of other foods in the present day life.

Wow..Hmm, good question. In my family (there are only 3 of us left as others are working elsewhere now) we eat very little rice. I personally don't like rice but eat a lot of bread. My mom doesn't eat rice cause she's diabetic so only my dad eats most of the rice. When we cook, we cook only one cup of rice and that's sufficient for all of us, meaning to say we don't even eat a cup each. We also had to buy a microwave rice cooker so that we can cook 1 cup as our conventional rice cookers take 2 cups and above. :/

i usually have a cup of rice for a meal but when the viand is great or of a chili type then i need more to satisfy the taste. the quantity of rice really depends on the other foods on the serving too.... if some foods in the table are either with noodles or pasta or casserole with lots of potato i may not take rice then or if there are bbq , adobo , ginataan , daing with tomatoes or lechon - with this foods i call for more servings of rice!
