Actually, I disagree, and eat well under a third of my diet as starches.According to the NHS:
What is your favourite starchy food - rice, noodles, pasta, potatoes, cereals? Do they make up over a third of your diet?
Agreed that processed white starch is (usually) not recommended.I think, and hope that this NHS advice is out of date. Current guidelines are to limit consumption of processed white starch (white bread, rice and pasta) because it breaks down into sugar very quickly, and is one of the drivers behind Western obesity. Whole grain carbs are recommended instead.
I understand that brown rice and black rice are the same. Just different names for this.I only thought there was white and brown rice??
