Many people include rice as a staple in their meals. A strict paleo diet does not allow dairy products because hunter-gatherers did not milk cows. On the flipside, those who have digestive disorders, like IBS or IBD must avoid high amounts of fiber in order to avoid triggering symptoms. However, I am not comfortable eating it due to it to dis-satisfying way it makes me feel—not sick, just Uckie! You should avoid eating cereal grains, legumes, dairy, refined sugar, white potatoes, processed foods, candy, junk food. I know the foods that inflame me the fastest are gluten-containing grains, sugar, alcohol, and dairy in that order. And yes, this is still true if you want to lose weight. These foods, despite what paleo advocates claim, are healthful and can be good sources of fiber, vitamins and minerals. It depends on the person and on the amount. However, if you’re relatively healthy, have no need to lose weight, or if you’re an athlete who needs to replenish their glycogen stores white rice in moderation of course is excellent.
I will look at its nutritional profile, pros and cons, white rice vs brown rice and explain why white rice can be included in the paleo diet in the right context. Not a lot. Not very often. But I do. In the paleo circles, this is often met with a few raised eyebrows and healthy debate. Is rice paleo? Is it okay to eat in small amounts? And in what context? These are the questions I will try to answer in this post. I explain why white rice is actually pretty safe and why some individuals could tinker with including some white rice in their paleo diet.
So what is “Paleo” and why do people eat this. Diet on the person, it. Generally, the Paleo diet limits paleo that rice common when. These foods are not permitted Acid. I allowed into this category. Ultimately adding in white rice.
