    If you add fats and protein to white rice, it lowers the glycemic index.. I do that because I dont really like brown rice..

    Nice find mate, but could you not just eat more fruits and vegetables and enjoy your white rice?

    I think it does... And the nutritional value isnt that far off from brown rice anyways.. People make the two rices sound like 2 different things..

    Correct, but two comments to make.

    Firstly, remember that if you add fat and protein just to lower the GI, you are also adding calories which will effectively increase insulin requirements. So if you are choosing low GI for cutting reasons you will be defeating the purpose unless you are tracking all calories.

    But secondly, I agree with what you are effectively saying. GI becomes less important as your meal is made up of progressively more protein and fat.

    Personally I eat white rice when bulking and brown when cutting.
