Take 60% of Calories Away When Cooking Your Rice In Just an Easy Way!

     Everyone loves rice because it can be paired with a lot of different kinds of food. It's also very affordable, however it's not the healthiest food since it has a lot of starch which is normally associated with diabetes. The experts stated that a single cup of rice is equaled to two hundred calories of starch which later becomes sugar and ends up as body fat.
Take 60% of Calories Away When Cooking Your Rice In Just an Easy Way!
     But, did you know that you can cook rice and take away some of its calories? All you need to do is to follow the easy steps below!

     1. Pour enough water for your rice to cook in the rice cooker, but don't add in the rice yet, just let the water boil.

     2. Get 3% of coconut oil which is equivalent to the rice that you'll be cooking.

     3. Mix the coconut oil with the boiling water.

     4. Add in the cleaned rice grains in the rice cooker and mix it a bit then let it get cooked.

     5. Allow the rice to cool down in the refrigerator for 12 hours.

Easy right? Now you have 60% less calories in your rice! And this is the reason why!

     All starches aren't the same, and the studies have revealed that any kind of starch can be changed if the cooking process is changed. Check out potatoes, when the starch in the potatoes gets cooked, it becomes more unhealthy.
     Certainly rice isn't no different. If the digestible starch can be reduced, so can the calories! Fried rice has more resistant starch than steamed rice. Resistant starch are slower to digest, and doesn't become glucose or glycogen since our body can't digest that kind of starch which has lower calorie content. So you can prefer fried rice over steamed rice now!

     Coconut oil is a lipid, when it is mixed in with the rice, the starch in the rice is improved, and since you'll need to refrigerate your rice, the coconut oil will change the the type of starch which makes the rice healthier, and with less calories.
