i read that some people say rice which is like wheat or whole grain catagory i think?? can cause acne. is this true? because i've eaten sticky white rice almost everyday since the day i was born, i've probably eaten rice more then anything else combined. i'm asian so it's a big part of my diet, just thought i'd ask anyway.

White rice is quite starchy and therefore full of sugar (which affects blood sugar, insulin, etc...read up on insulin sensitivity and inflammation). If you must eat rice, brown and wild rice is a much much better option.

Try a little experiment wink.gif

Cut out ALL sources of grains (all kinds of rice, bread, cookies, wheat) for 1 week and see what happens. It will be difficult, but who knows, you might see great improvement. And keep reminding yourself that if you do not see any improvement, it is only for 1 week anyway. If you see even a tiny slight improvement, go for one more week.

Yes really try and stick to it! If it does not work though, I would DEFINITELY recommend to stay away from the white rice anyway. Quinoa is so good and very similar to rice although it is a much better option. It is as easy to cook as rice is, and could easily be an alternative to rice. It is gluten free and is a decent source of minerals and such.

White rice is not a good food, but superior to all other calorie dense carb foods.

I'll tell you upfront: I have not seen many asians with rice sensitivities. This is not a broad generalization:
The Japanese ate 6 times as much rice as americans and they had a VERY VERY low incidence of acne, prior to their adoption of western diet--whereupon they immediately started getting acne. Thus rice was not a cause acne per say.

I'm just saying that from my observation, asians have a serious problem with bread. Here in colllege, asians have MUCH worse acne than westerners. If you just scan across the class, most of the asians have acne. Many of my buddies are asians, their acne is horrible, and they eat so much white bread? coincidence? SO NOT a coincidence.

Conclusion: gotta find your triggers man. Who knows?? I can eat as much rice as I want, but I can't eat bread for the life of me.

To be honest, I notice a lot of asians get acne, I cant speak for asians in asian countries, but in the western world a lot of western born asians seem to get acne and bad (ie me)

I went to Malaysia for a couple of months with my mate and my acne really flared up after a couple of weeks, it can be argued the humid climate did my skin no favours; but it was actually during that time i discovered this place and read all about carbs and shit fucking your system up, so i cut out the rice and noodles we was having everyday and my skin seemed to get better again.

Most white foods cause acne.... potatoes, rice, bread....

Try to stay away from white foods.

Doesn't white basmati rice have a low GI? I thought it was ok to eat white rice, brown rice has little GI difference just a bit more fibre.

To be honest, my answer for this question is "No"

Rice is the only human-friendly, cheapest, low-sugar, Great source carbohydrate, easy to cook, average energy contained and it also helps you to get enough vitamin such as b1b2 b3 b5 b6 b12 and minerals like zinc, calcium, phosphorus, iron , etc. biggrin.gif
