Can Eating Rice Regularly Cause Weight Gain?

Hello FitFam,
Hope you are healthy and well.

The simple answer to this question is ‘No’. Although, there is more to this. Rice is a carbohydrate and a very good one at that. It is also very easy to digest. Although, one thing you need to regulate is the quantity. Eating moderately is the key. I know many people who eat roti and rice together. My advice here is to eat either one. This isn’t a necessity but a tip you can follow to cut carbs.

Secondly, take note of what are you eating along with your rice. I emphasize on balanced meals alot. Just eating rice and dal can definitely mean that you are eating a lot carbs. Ensure you are adding enough of protein to your diet (like paneer, chicken etc) Add fiber to your diet. Salads and vegetables are your go-to here. These tips will help you avoid weight gain. Generally rice doesn’t cause weight gain! So eat it in moderation and you are set.
