For working out I've been very focused on muay thai the past year but my lifts are still fairly solid. Recently hit a 405 backsquat and 335 bench pretty easily. I've just been doing an upper and lower body day 2-3 days per week with 2-3 days of training muay thai/conditioning.

Will post moar in upcoming weeks. Thx for this thread OP.



The key with cauliflower rice is to cut regular white rice with it so I do like half and half or 2/3 white rice 1/3 cauliflower. I grew up eating rice every day so eating it solo is not a suitable substitute. Cutting your regular rice with it works pretty well.

Absolutely! Keep us posted with weekly/monthly results!.

That's what I've been doing after each workout, put that sucker in "Fat Burner" for 15 mins and I sweat even more than what I was during my strength workout. Does wonders for legs.

Decided to give these a try as a snack, they are sort of tasty, but extremely dry, which helps me from indulging in a bread streak. I've been eating about 6 a day, which is way less than the serving size, but they help whenever I get bored at work and wish for a quick snack. That plus my water intake has been helping.

How'd you cook it? Not all brown rice is the same (well, that's true of all rice) but while slightly tougher at it's worst, it should not be something you notice. And the flavor should be richer, almost nutty. But yes, it has more taste than white, so if you're just using it as filler...
Makes me think all these diet tips are a disservice because they don't help people work with the differences. You can't just swap non-dairy into baking, fake cheese tastes fake, tofu can be delicious if you're not expecting it to taste like something else...

Is probably because of the same characteristics of brown rice against white rice. White rice can absorb any flavorings a little easier than brown rice. In my case, is chicken stock (powder). White rice is little softer too, I don't feel like I took a scoop of bird feed and starting eating it.



I could never replace my foods for fake versions haha. Like I've said earlier, I'll still eat what I like, just in more moderation. I won't completely stick with brown rice, just increase my intake of it and reduce white rice intake. You are damn sure I will be destroying a double bacon burger with fries from time to time, but not as often as I did.

I haven't had cauliflower rice yet. I just stick with brown or long grain wild rice.

I like wild rice. I'd rather just not eat than eat brown rice.

Properly cooked brown rice and a sunny side up yolky egg on it is

It's hard to cook brown rice well imo. I just buy it from the local chinese food spot.

Yeah, I have a strong dislike for brown rice too. I have tried to like it but just can't.

Vice versa for eating potato. Something to do w digestive system (read it while back).

Also this is more toward women than men, but eating too much tofu have higher chance of breast cancer.

With that said, I've started diet/exercise last month as well. Before baby came, I was 5'7"~8" w average 180lbs. Now 202lbs. I wanna get back into 180~190lbs.

I've started intermittent fasting and I do play indoor soccer once a week. I wanna get back doing quick workout at night... but that's been hard due to taking care of baby.

It's good with a lot. Just plan the flavors together, rather than substituting. I discovered I really like it added to chili. Goes well with beans and cheese and spicy flavor.

So is shredded cardboard, and tastes about the same to me....

It's funny how different tastes folks have really. There aren't too many foods I really don't like. Brown rice is one of them. The other one is fish that isn't fried.

GI is one of the most misunderstood and overrated “diet” things. It’s pretty much pointless to anyone who isn’t diabetic or at least have some serious blood sugar issues. For the majority of people where a carb ranks on ths GI is meaningless especially if you are eating this carb with other foods that will alter the digestion and absorption rate.

Eat whatever rice you like and enjoy the taste of most. My main carb staple is jasmine rice. Tastes good, helps fill me up but not get bloated. Brown rice is over rated and tastes like sh*t. If you like the flavor good on you. But I would never force anyone to eat it or even recommend it over white. The few miniscul micro nutrient/ fiber benefits are too minimal to matter and you shouldn’t rely on your main carb sources for micros, rely on micro nutrient dense foods primarily fruits and veggies for that. Eat staple carb sources for carbs.
