10) brown rice
Brown rice is whole grain – so it contains the outer fibre layer, the middle starchy layer called endosperm and the inner nutrient rich core called the germ.

This process removes much of the fibre and nutrients.
Weight for weight, brown rice has a lower glycemic index compared to white rice, therefore,reducing diabetes.
It promotes fullness because of its high fibre content and leaves you feeling satisfied but yet lowers your sugar and calories consumed.
It is an excellent replacement for white rice to help with reducing belly fat and weight loss.
