One of the most important ingredient for losing weight is switching from refined carbohydrate such as white rice, white pasta and white bread to complex or whole grain carbohydrate such as good quality brown bread, brown rice and wholemeal pasta.

The outer husk of the grain which is removed when brown rice is refined to white rice contains almost all of the fiber (essential for keeping you satisfied and feeling full) and most of the nutrients (especially the B vitamins which convert the rice to energy in the body)... so keep it all on and switch to whole grain!

This is just one of the areas I'll be covering in my course:
