Not just during the day, many consume rice in the night as well thinking it is easy to digest and their meals are incomplete without a serving of rice

 If however, this holds true for you as well, you should know that eating rice in the night isn’t the best thing for your health especially if you are watching your weight.00

Rice is high in starch and carbs and breaks down easily. So yes, you can digest it easily but that is where the problem lies. 

When you eat rice for dinner, this instant spike in energy is created as the food is digested easily but because you are going to be asleep for the next few hours, your body will not get any nutrition for these many hours.

when you wake up, there will be hunger pangs as the rice you ate was digested quickly and then your body was in starvation mode in the night.

Switch to chapatti instead and have only two so that you get the required dose of fibre and nutrition

 You can also stick to just eating salad and soup at night and skipping both rice and chapatti altogether as well.

you just cannot give up rice, switch to brown rice instead so that it does not break down easily and result in a blood glucose spike in your body.
