Basmati Rice

I followed your advise and went to a dietician. One question though. What is the difference between eating Basmati Rice opposed to brown rice? Thanx

Dear Reader
I am so glad and hope that you will go from strength to strength with the help of your dietitian. Brown rice has a low glycaemic index (GI), while Basmati rice has a moderate (between high and low) GI. So basically it is better to eat brown rice which will help you to control your blood sugar and insulin levels more accurately.
Enjoy
