What are the nutritional benefits of eating rice?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
In Japan, plain rice (no salt or butter) accompanies most every meal. They prefer short-grain white rice, which is lower on the glycemic index (meaning your body takes longer to convert it to sugar), and helps you feel satisfied for longer. Even better is brown rice, a whole grain rich in good-for-you fiber. So try adding a small bowl of short-grain brown rice to meals and see how it helps you feel fuller and eat less.
