Brown Rice Diet – Weight Loss And Detoxification

White rice is a very popular kitchen staple. It’s cheap, it cooks fast, and has a more fluffy texture than that of brown rice.

Brown rice Diet

Unfortunately, brown rice doesn’t get the recognition it so deserves. It is a powerhouse food that has not only double the fiber that white race has, but it’s also a powerful body cleanser to detoxify and therefore is incredibly beneficial for diet approach. It is for this reason that many are learning about the brown rice and vegetables diet .

So what does it do?

Well.. this diet is one that proposes cleansing and detoxification of the body.

This is a some-what extreme diet plan, meaning that the only thing you can eat is brown rice. The basic thought behind this diet is that when white rice is milled, it loses much, if not all, of its nutritional value, meaning it’s all but stripped of its fiber content. Fiber is what is claimed to remove the toxins from your body.

There are two ways to go about incorporating the brown rice diet plan into your life.

Extreme Brown Rice Diet

The first would involve eating just tiny meals of brown rice, cooked in water, five to six times daily. There is no other food permitted, however it is allowed and recommended you drink at least eight to ten glasses of water, and a glass of fresh vegetable juice now and again. You need to stick with this plan for up to two weeks, and during this time the body is cleansed of harmful chemicals and toxins. The body will feel cleansed because it’s consuming so much water, which is a diuretic, as well as the fiber from the rice, which is a natural laxative.

Normal Healthy Version:

Another version of the brown rice diet, and the more sensible, healthy of the two, is that you can eat other types of healthy foods rather than just the rice, for example fruit and vegetables, organic and raw, in order to get the best nutrients out of them. As with the extreme variant it is recommend you drink as much water as possible which helps with the detoxification of the body, while on the brown rice diet.

This diet really isn’t that much different from other low-fat diets out there. Fruit and brown rice, vegetables with brown rice, and even brown rice with brown rice, is allowed. Subsequently, you can have herbal tea with brown rice or fruit juice with brown rice. As much as you would like, but this must be followed for a full week in order for it to be effective.

Both of these versions of the brown rice diet will allow you to lose weight, however incorporating exercise into your daily routine is just as important, since taking on this diet alone is not going to work, or at least not permanently, for weightloss you are going to need to do cardio exercises to help burn fat, as well as spot-training to tone and target areas.

Since you are eating foods that are high in nutritional value but also low in caloric intake, you need to keep your energy levels high, and exercise is a great way to do that. Make sure that you are eating enough in order for your body to be able to handle the change and still get the necessary nutrients it needs to function.

It is important to warn you however that these combinations, water and brown rice, act as both a diuretic and a laxative, so anyone taking part in this diet needs to be near a bathroom when possible.

      Hey Mike,
      In answer to your question, black rice is even better than brown rice, as it contains everything brown rice does, but is also packed with anthocyanin antioxidants, which are found in blueberries. Black rice is however not really mass market so its allot harder to find, if you are happy with the texture and can easily find black rice, I would choose that personally, if you cant easily find it or dont like the texture I would just stick with brown rice.

      With regard to which Brown rice is best, they are all mostly the same, there are minor diffrences, but i wouldent really worry about them, I would just buy to your budget, personally i just eat supermarket own brand.

    Wasn’t crazy about the plain brown rice so I spiced it up a little with plain cinnamon and pulverized organic, unsalted almonds. Like rice pudding without milk, eggs and sugar. Yumm-O!

    Actually, short grain brown rice is signicantly better for you than long grain as they are much higher in short chain fatty acids.
