Is brown rice bad for you when trying to lose weight?


Many people in my country prefer brown rice as substitute in white rice even the first one is more expensive because they believed that brown rice is healthier. According to research that brown rice has less carbs and low calories and enriched with essential nutrients that is good for weight loss. I have tried brown rice and I can tell that this is very good compare to white rice. I have a blood pressure issues and doctor says that I need to lessen eating white rice. I decided to switch to brown rice and now I have not suffer hypertension. I have realized that eating brown rice was one way to help my blood pressure stable in normal.
 
Brown rice has more nutritional value than the polished white rice has, just like honey has more nutrition than white sugar. However, when you are trying to lower your insulin level by intermittent fasting and eating one meal a day, then it just does not make sense to eat foods that are going to cause an insulin spike, which means you will store fat and not burn fat.
Almost any diet plan suggests that you limit both sweets and starches, because both of them are causing people to gain weight; so either white rice or brown rice should not be a staple food when you are trying to lose weight.

There are 52 grams of carb in a cup of brown rice, and 53 grams in a cup of white rice; so the difference is negligible, although brown rice does have more fiber.
On a low carb diet, you should be only having 20-30 grams of carbs per day, so even one cup of rice is twice the amount of your whole daily allowance. You would not be able to have any kind of veggies or other food except protein or fats with even a half cup of rice per day.
 
If indeed brown rice is healthier and I'm inclined to believe that it is, I would love to eat brown rice. I have tasted it and it has a different taste and texture from white rice. But I liked it! I can easily switch from brown rice to white rice. My problem is trying to convert the other people that I live with. TV chef Ming Tsai says that, per his father's advice, he mixes brown and white rice together for his family.
 
I have heard that that brown rice being that much healthier than white rice may just be a myth although I admit I haven't looked too much deeper to know if there is any validity to that claim. Supposedly, according to some, it might be even worse for you since you don't break it down as easily as regular rice and you also don't absorb nutrients from it at all. Personally, if I were thinking of making a permanent switch, I'd first try and find as much research on this first from credible professionals like actual doctors and nutritionists.

What makes brown rice superior over white is the fact that it has a lot more fiber in it. I could go into a whole rant about how fiber is incredibly important and beneficial, but I’ll just leave it at the fact that it greatly aids the digestion of just about everything you put in your body, so you want to eat as many fibrous foods as possible.

There are two varieties of rice that we have in our country and one of them is the parboiled rice which is also known as foreign rice, what I have noticed is that most older people are not cool with eating this type of rice since you are going to eat a rice that has been cooked before.

The other type is the local rice which is brownish in color. I have realized that most people that are living over the age of 30 prefer this type and while I have not confirmed whether this rice is healthier, it is one that I enjoy eating as well.

My grandmother is among the people are more comfortable eating local rice to the foreign imported rice. I can remember asking her one day why she doesn't fancy eating foreign rice, she told me that the nutrients content in local rice is better than the one in foreign rice. This might be true based on her experience but I have no way of verifying this.
