    Well if you are aiming to lose fat, that seems like carb overkill to the max. 2-3 times a day, 1-2 cups? That means you are having 2-6 cups of rice on those days, which is nuts. Hell, I'm cutting right now, and I only have 2 servings of complex carbs a day. Half a cup of oats for breakfast, and sometimes a piece of bread or a little rice, and that's not even every day...

    How much is too much? How about 2 cups (one for lunch and one for dinner)? (every other day?) what can I replace instead of rice as a side for lunch or dinner? besides vegetables, I always have vegetables with my meals. Should I just have a tuna salad or chicken salad as a side?

    I have heard that eating too much rice makes it harder for your body to absord some vitamins, including vitaminC.
