    GI Index of brown rice!


    hey all, just a question on food. brown rice.

    ive read website(s) , for 100g of uncooked brown rice yield 77g of carbs and cooked rice yield 24g of carbs.

    So when i want to measure my carbs, say i aim for 200g of carbs from brown rice, should i measure it weighed before cooked or cooked??

    no measure it cooked. i wouldnt try to get 200 grams just from brown rice though. get carbs from different sources; fruits, vegetables, other grains, etc.
