A lot of people around the world eat rice every day. It's a flexible and healthy grain that can be eaten in moderation as part of a healthy diet.

The amount of rice that is considered healthy to eat every day depends on age, gender, level of activity, and total caloric needs.

Rice should be eaten in reasonable amounts for most people, which is about one cup (cooked) per meal or three cups per day.Β 

This amount gives you a good amount of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and carbs, which are needed to make energy.

However, eating too much rice, especially white rice, can cause weight gain and type 2 diabetes and metabolic diseases. Β Β 

The high glycemic index of white rice is the reason for this. It can make blood sugar levels rise quickly.

To maximize rice's health advantages and maintain a balanced diet, consume a variety of whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables daily. Β Β 

Additionally, choosing brown or wild rice over white rice may provide more fiber and calories.
