I noticed that whenever I eat white rice for dinner, my gut feels calmer ...SO much calmer....no bloating, rumblings or discomfort, and just a healthy amount of gas-passing! Not extreme.
I sleep a little better, and the mornings are not as "bathroom dramatic" with fairly normal bm's., which ends up with me in a more positive mood for the day.
But I felt a bit guilty about eating it. as for 40+ years I ate a wholefood diet, and wouldn't have ever eaten white rice. But noticing I feel a little better on it, I am happy to eat it now.
I can't argue with my gut, which is much calmer when I eat white rice than if I eat pasta or even peeled potatoes.
So I thought I'd check what possible health woes I was storing up for myself by eating white rice. I found this webpage:
