Just my two cents here but I think rice isn't a terribly bad carb.  My dh is 
from the Philippines and their incidence of diabetes is very small.  I find 
my husband who eats rice three times a day and about 50% of his diet along 
with fish and chicken, to be thin and healthy.  Low cholesterol etc.  I have 
converted to all rice and my children only eat rice and I have found it so 
much easier to control than eating potatoes and pasta.  I also sometimes 
wonder if it is the kind of rice we eat.  The kind we buy in 100 lb bags is 
no Uncle Bens that is for sure.
