Who is going to win the fight between these two heavy weights of the diet club. We’ll name this fight card – ‘ Dieting – Rice versus Wheat ’.
It’s a longtime grudge match. Both are talented contenders for your dieting needs, and both will go down swinging. But in the end, we want to know who should actually hold the title as ‘Champion’. There are as many diets it seems, as there are dieters. Many say today that to get rid of wheat permanently is the way to go.
Others disagree. There could be some who are ‘wheat intolerant’ meaning their systems don’t react well to it. It makes sense then for these people to leave the wheat alone. If you have a wheat-free diet it means you’re gonna have restrictions on things like pretzels, wheat pasta, wheat breads, and any kinds of cereal that contain wheat. I know this is common sense, but some people actually get surprised when you mention this obvious fact, like they didn’t know the cereal they were eating had wheat in it. The no-wheat plans have their place and work well when applied the right way for the right person. The rice plans, are a bit more involved. With this plan you try to limit your intake of starches, fats, sugars, and processed foods.
Limiting these will help you to lose the weight you want. There is a progressive phase each week in the rice diet plans, for cutting down certain foods. It’s designed to allow the dieter to phase out the old way of eating and phase in the new way, which will enable any weight loss managed from the diet to be kept off by a continuation of a certain food regimen. You switch from the ‘diet’ phase to the ‘maintenance’ phase. So who wins this match-up between the dieting factors – rice vs. wheat? All things considered, I believe the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. These two really cater to individual bodies and chemistries. So as the referee in this fight, I call it a draw, since no substantial blows were thrown that could designate a winner. I am leaning toward rice in this battle, but it’s too close to call. In all fairness I have to go by the judges scorecards, so a draw it is. You alone can be the vote that tips the scales in favor of one or the other.
