There are between 200 and 240 calories in a cup of cooked white rice.

Rice has no sugar, some protein, a good amount of carbs and relatively few nutrients per calorie. If you take a look at the nutrition label you will see a smattering of minerals.

The process that converts brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of the vitamin B1, 90% of the vitamin B6, half of the manganese, half of the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the dietary fiber and essential fatty acids.

That said, White rice and Basmati in particular taste great and when served with a huge pile of veggies have plenty of nutrition

Vegetables dwarf the nutrient power of either white or brown rice. If you prefer the taste of white rice, and you eat a pile of veggies with it, you are doing fine.

You don't need to go "full health nut" to get great nutrition. That is one of the keys of the PEERtrainer Cheat System, something that most of you are understanding. But for others who are still chewing on it, the basic idea is that you eat most of your food from the left side of the list, and then when you do have stuff from the right that is considered not great, you can enjoy it without the guilt.

We are finding that many people like this way of eating. One person today (the day we created this update to the white rice entry) said that we offer a "way out" of certain eating situations without creating feelings of "failure."

We were really happy to read that. If you have downloaded the list, make sure to join the new team we created for others following the system. If you have not yet downloaded your copy, this blog post will give you instructions how.
