Did you know that, contrary to popular belief, fibrous brown rice actually contains MORE harmful ingredients and can be WORSE for your metabolism than white rice?
Turns out, the glucose molecules found in pure starches like white rice are actually much less problematic than brown rice.
The pure glucose has been shown to suppress your hunger levels via your “hunger hormone” ghrelin and help you control your appetite so you don’t get cravings at night.
Now, again, I know this sounds like the exact opposite of what you’ve likely heard before, but this is how glucose-based starches can help you burn more belly fat.
There are three keys though that you have to keep in mind:
Number one is portion control. Every time you want to eat white rice, just make sure you’re having about a fist-sized portion.
If you’re a high-intensity exerciser who’s already lean and wants to gain muscle, you could double that and then you could time it the right way, with post-workout being the best time.
The second key is combinations, so if you’re going to have some white rice, just make sure to combine it with some protein and some fibrous veggies so that you’re keeping your body stay in a fat-burning environment.
The third and most important aspect is timing. If you’re sedentary, the game changes and you’re probably going to want to avoid white rice most of the time. If you go low-carb for six to seven days, you suppress a lot of fat-burning hormones.
So by cheating with some white rice, you can spike leptin levels, you can increase your thyroid sensitivity, and you can go ahead and increase your insulin sensitivity, and just get your fat-burning hormones back in check again.
So if you’re sedentary and you’re going low-carb, that’s awesome; it’s going to help you lose belly fat.
But once or twice a week, you should add some white starches into your diet to help your hormones and prevent your metabolism from slowing down.
But the most important aspect about timing is post-workout, or after exercise. If you’re a high-intensity exerciser, your metabolic needs are completely different than somebody who’s sedentary.
All these things are proof that you can use white rice to burn more belly fat if you eat it in your post-workout window — so within one to four hours after a workout.
The even better news is that I have a 12-minute fountain of youth metabolic trick I want to introduce you to that will help you burn even more belly fat while you’re adding in your white rice or similar starches at the right times and in the right combinations.
Most people complain about not having enough time to exercise. This 12-minute trick is specifically designed for the hormonal condition of people over 35 years old, especially those who struggle to find time to exercise consistently.
This 12-minute metabolic trick will allow your body to burn more belly fat in 12 minutes than you could in an hour of traditional cardio exercise!
