Skinny Rice?

When I make a meal, I have used riced cauliflower in place of rice. I haven’t had rice in a long time because the carbs in rice is astronomical.  In one cup of basic white or brown rice, there are about 45g of carbs.  It is even more in other types of rie.  Well, if you can only have between 50 to 100 g of carbs per day to lose weight, then that is most of your consumption in just one cup of rice!

So, a study came out about rice!  It seems that if you cook rice differently, you can halve the calories and I would think the carbs as well.


The new cooking method:

1.  Add a half cup of uncooked rice to boiling water with a teaspoon of coconut oil.

2.  Let the rice simmer for 40 minutes, but confirmed that boiling for 20 to 25 minutes would also work.

3.  The last step of the process involved refrigerating the rice for 12 hours.  Then you can reheat it.

Well, I suppose it is worth a shot once in a while.  To me, 22g of carbs is still a lot for a cup, but if you eat half a cup at 11g of carbs to have with your Tikka chicken, it might be worth it once in awhile, instead of my usual riced cauliflower.

Losing Weight and Keeping it Off

Losing weight is hard enough, but keeping it off is the real challenge.

I know so many people who yo-yo diet and they just get frustrated.  But, isn’t it time for you to put your needs first?  Isn’t getting thin and staying thin actually really important to you?  Isn’t it more important than going shopping for clothes (that don’t fit well), than goofing off yet again, etc?  You need to find at least 30 minutes a day to exercise and some time to get good food for your diet and learn a few good recipes and ways to eat so you can lose weight.


You have to make a lifestyle change.  You can’t just diet.  So, you can’t get bored.  The secret is to not be lazy and to start looking up different ways to cook things that you can eat.  Here is a book for all of you lazy asses who don’t want to cook!

Yes, you need to eat a small salad every day.  That salad has to have protein in it.  So, every day, do a variety of different things to that salad.  Use different meats, cheeses, etc.  Don’t eat the same thing, day in and day out, or you will get sick of it.  I know, I have been there.

Yes, you have to eat vegetables, two smal servings-two times a day.  So, cook it different ways.  I have a friend who always steams and likes it that way, but her family doesn’t like it.  So, make veggies a variety of ways.  Here is a website, which shares different ways to cook a variety of veggies.  So yummy!  and here is another one:

Now go out and get some tools like cook books and good food and get skinny!
