Switch from White Rice to Brown for Stunning Weight Loss Results. Here’s How it Works

Hey Gorgeous!

Are you ready for this?

There may be a super-effective, totally satisfying, body-shaping weight loss solution out there, and it could not be simpler!

Researchers took two groups of overweight women and put each one on a weight loss diet—one including a cup of white rice, and the other a cup of brown. After six weeks, they switched the groups’ diets.

When the white rice group switched to brown, they experienced significantly more weight loss, as well as body-shaping around their hips and abdomens. In addition, they enjoyed lower blood pressure and reduced inflammation. These results held steady for pre-diabetics—a particularly high-risk group.

Try my gorgeously colourful, sensationally tasty Buddha Bowl, for example. I dare you to try that and still prefer white rice. :p

And now that you know making the switch away from white rice could help you lose weight, too, what in the world is stopping you?
