Is Brown Rice Bad For You As An Ocassional Food?
I'm guessing brown rice isn't optimal, but is it really that bad? Would eating it a few times a week be noticeable bad?Andrew's Answer:
In the end, such judgments are largely subjective. What can you reason yourself into?
Some people may believe that while alcohol is poison, and kills cells in a laboratory environment, a glass or two here and there will not harm them. Others may say the same thing about steak, smoking, recreational drug use, or other topics.
Obviously, what you do every day matters much more than what you do only rarely. But at once or twice a week, I would not consider a habit rare.
As for rice, yes, there's plenty of reason to avoid it. For one, it needs to be cooked, and all cooked food is damaged food
When I first started experimenting with eating raw, I would go a month or so eating only raw fruits and vegetables and the colitis I was suffering from would go away. Then I'd eat a vegan, grain-based cooked meal and my colitis would come back. From my personal perspective, I've long associated rice with disease for this reason.
It's best to stick to a 100 percent raw diet
if you want to succeed and find health.
What trade offs you decide to make are up to you.
I prefer to shoot for optimal at all times.
