Which kind of rice is advisable in a low-carb-diet?

Q: How much carbohydrates does a 100 g of rice contain if we separate out the starch, which is usually done in rural India? I am on a low carb diet. But I have a weakness for rice. Can rice be eaten after taking the starch out?

A:The protein and carbohydrate content is as follows: White rice raw (average): Proteins - 15g Carbohydrates - 170g White rice boiled: Proteins - 5.2g Carbohydrates - 62g Fried rice: Proteins - 4.4g Carbohydrates - 50g Rice (e.g.. Boiled Rice), has a medium-high carbohydrate count and is discouraged by most low carb diets - at least in the early very-low-carb phases of the eating plan. Even so, less-processed whole grain rice remains a very healthy diet food as it contains important nutrition like vitamins and minerals; for example, brown rice and wild rice (the cultivated seed of a water grass plant) are good sources of protein, vitamin B1 and magnesium.
