Does eating white rice make one fat?

Q: I have heard that eating white rice makes you fat. Is it true or just a myth? Also, does boiling the rice reduce its starch content?

A:Yes, it is a myth that eating white rice makes one fat. If one doesn't exercise regularly being on a diet of breads, they may still gain weight. Starch does get simplified, though doesn't vanish on boiling the rice. Rice starch may get simplified even better when it is roasted.
