Weight loss tips: Does eating rice lead to weight gain? Fitness coach tells ways to lose belly fat
People are always in a dilemma on whether to eat or not eat rice while on a weight loss diet. Most people say that during weight loss, avoiding rice is better. But some recent dieticians are saying that eating rice has no effect on weight gain.
Many say that it is important to eat all the food groups, avoiding any food group will not help in weight loss. Recently, fitness coach Miten Kakaiya took to his Instagram account and said that rice has nothing to do with your gaining weight.
Eating rice or roti is not the reason behind weight gain. The reason behind weight gain is overeating. Some stories also suggest that overeating can lead to weight gain. Although, this is not the only reason behind weight gain.
