Reduce Rice, More Benefits to Health

Rice including the most delicious source of carbohydrates than sweet potatoes, maize or cassava. So do not be surprised if the Indonesian people are very dependent on rice. But actually eat less rice more benefits.

If the government's plan to make the program "A Day Without Rice 'or' One Day, No Rice's' reap the pros and cons, health practitioners would see many benefits for people's health.

But it acknowledged not easy to change the mindset of people from Indonesia that has hundreds of years is highly dependent on rice. To the extent that there is the term 'do not eat if you do not eat rice'.

"I strongly support if there is such a policy. What we need is actually not a rice but not carbohydrates. Well, actually there is a good carbohydrate in cassava, yams, bananas, corn, potatoes, brown rice, green beans or wheat bread. Carbohydrates from here even greater benefits than rice, "explained Dr. L. Toruan Phaidon, MM, doctor of nutrition and healthy living expert from Jakarta Anti-aging & Executive Fitness Consultant, when contacted detikHealth, Wednesday (13/10/2010).

What are the benefits to eat less rice?

Dr Phaidon explains one of the benefits of changing eating habits is to prevent the rice from type 2 diabetes (diabetes due to lifestyle).

Just so you know rice has a high sugar content which increases the level of glucose in the blood that can trigger the risk of developing diabetes. And for people with diabetes must manage their plasma glucose, one of them to eat less rice with no recurrence for the disease.

White rice including simple carbohydrates that contain high sugar levels, when ingested, will directly into energy quickly and increase blood sugar levels. But the simple carbohydrates can not store glycogen reserves.

Instead of the carbohydrates, such as cassava, maize, cassava, oatmeal, wheat bread, brown rice is a complex carbohydrate low sugar content and full longer hold up to 6 hours.

These complex carbohydrates can be stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen (a substance prior to glucose). If the body lacks energy, glycogen reserves is to be broken down into glucose for energy.

Complex carbohydrates contain less sugar but more high-fiber, so it gives more benefits, both for women, men and children.

According to Dr Phaidon, the benefits of low-sugar complex carbohydrates better than rice among other things:

For women
  • Make the skin smooth, beautiful and luminous
  • Free toxin
  • Ageless
  • Remove wrinkles on the face

For men
  • Enhance arousal and libido
  • Increase energy, stamina and strength men
  • Fitter and more vibrant

  • Improving intelligence
  • Improve strength
  • Not easily tired and sick

"If the government calls like that, it means that the Indonesian government would be beautiful, smooth skin, strong and smart," added Dr Phaidon, who is also the author of 'Fat Loss Not Weight Loss'.

Dr Phaidon also revealed that Indonesian people should learn to change the presumption 'is not eat if you do not eat rice'.

"Many Indonesian people would rather be in comfort zone, good food rather than healthy and quality food. So to be able to change that assumption, there must first desire, "explained Dr Phaidon.

To be able to change these assumptions, Dr. Phaidon insisted there must be desire. The desire must also be backed with confidence, thus the brain will react and find ways to make changes.

"The process of change it is not convenient, it takes about 25-30 days for adjustment. The adjustment is intended not about the body's response, but more on taste. If the body would react very well when the rice is replaced with other carbs that higher quality, "explained Dr Phaidon further.

So please select a still eat rice as well but lack a lot of benefits or starting slowly switching to sweet potatoes, maize, cassava, oatmeal, wheat bread, brown rice which are less palatable but more health benefits.
