Does rice make you fat and how it affect your weight?

Very hight count of calories in rice puts this product at the top of hight calorific grain products. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific grain products, rice seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other grain products.

It is hard to find product with higher calories count in grain products. Similar energy amount have only such products as brown rice, tapioca or fluor.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If rice contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
