White rice is better post workout because is easy to digest,and brown rice have more protein and is slower digested, make the conclusion

The only really difference between the two is the brown rice is partially milled and there for retains much of its fiber. So yes for slimming, brown rice will be your better option. Also there protein content is not really any different as far as what you can digest but i could be wrong on that fact. im not 100%

On an absolute scale, less processed food is generally preferred but some people can't stand brown rice and the three-fold increase in cooking time for brown rice over white can also be inconvenient.

sorry but if you cant stand brown rice there is something wrong with you. It's not exactly delicious, but it really just is... rice

If you measure brown rice by weight instead of volume you get more volume,, plus when cooking brown rice you need twice the amount of water you do for white. This makes brown rice look like more food, even though it could be less.
Also, luckily in Japan brown rice is cheaper lol

All I am getting at is that depending on one's overall diet, there may not be that much of a sacrifice going to white over brown. On an absolute scale yes, brown rice has a higher food value.
Using your GI example, the real consideration is the glycemic LOAD of the meal (GI x quantity of carbs). If the quantity of carbs is low then GI will not be as important.

white rice and brown rice glycemic index is 77 and 76 respectivly depending on the grain of white rice.
But brown rice has more nutrients and fiber which makes it better for you.
but if you meet all your requirements for vitamins minerals and fiber, then it really wont matter what you choose IMO
