They're carbs, and well, actually, sugar, so yes, eating less of it will help in slimming down.  However, carbs also give you energy.  So it's okay to eat rice as long as you exercise and burn it.

the atkin's diet believes in low-carbohydrate and high-protein diet.

my husband learned about this and made it a lifestyle. then, people and friends of ours are raving about his lean physical body.  :)

I think this works cuz my friend only ate 1-2 cups of rice a day instead of 3 and she lost weight. She also cut down on junk food :).

nong dalaga pa ko di ako kumakain ng rice and if ever kakain ako mga 2-3 tbsp lang. very slim ako, height ko 5 flat lang and weight usually nasa 98-100, pinaka mabigat na yung 105. kinakain ko lahat ng gusto ko basta limit lang ako sa rice.

It's not really the rice, it's the calorie deficit. You can  eat less ulam and it will also make you slimmer. Or drink less soda.

Any diet with calorie deficit will lead to weight loss.

i think it really helps. i eat oatmeal instead of rice for all my meals and my tummy has decreased in size. mukha akong 4 months pregnant dati. now i think mukha na lang akong 1 month preggers. hoping to get my old figure back in a few months. i stopped eating rice about a week ago and i'm happy with the results.

Yes, it will make you slimmer. In my case I have not been eating rice for  1yr and 8months now, I weight 129lbs before I stopped eating rice, now I already weight 107lbs, pero hindi lang talaga not eating rice ang nagpapayat sa akin kasama na rin dun ang no softdrinks at no junkfood.

Tapos I eat a lot of fruits, kasi tendency when you are not eating rice babawiin mo sa ibang food na nakakataba rin unknowingly kasi you have this palusot na you are not eating rice naman.
I am nobody.

Nobody is PERFECT.

Therefore, I am PERFECT!.

Wow, thanks for all your replies. I will try to lessen my rice intake to reach my desired shape. Nagkabilbil na kasi ako ngayon and I find it awkward pag sinusuot ko mga fitted shirts ko even skinny jeans.

Just keep on posting your experiences to inspire us.

hey this is true. may classmate ako nung 4th yr. college, 2 silang mataba, 1 boy and isang girl. after 3 yrs, nakita ko ulit sila and ang laki ng binawas sa timbang nila, lalo na yung girl, naging prominent yung cheeckbones niya. no rice diet talaga ginawa nila. exercise din importante kung gusto mo mawala flabs mo. ako problem ko is yung sa tummy and legs ko, dun naiipon yung fats. kaya di proportion body ko, pero normal ang BMI ko.
Embrace the change - it's a positive thing.

If you can't give up on rice, try eating brown rice. ganto yun guy friend ko, when he wants to trim down or lose a few pounds sinusubstitute niya ang brown rice sa white rice. Basta anything white like white bread and rice medyo di maganda kase nga it turns to sugar, sa pagkakaalam ko lang. Ako I'm trying oatmeal, dati cereals pero mas tipid ang oatmeal eh.

Yes, eating less rice or any carbohydrates is effective in losing weight. I have learned that eating too much carbohydrates will cause to shoot up your blood sugar that is why after 1 hour you are craving for more carbohydrates and sweets. I eat rice at lunch time only but I eat 6 times a day in small amount only.
