Roti or Rice: what is better for weight loss

Varnika Srivastava

Roti and rice are staple Indian flatbreads, with pros and cons. Debate surrounds whether to include roti or rice in weight loss efforts, or neither. The choice depends on timing and timing.

Roti is a low-calorie option compared to white rice, making it an ideal choice for those seeking to manage their calorie intake.

Whole-grain roti is a rich source of dietary fiber, providing a satisfying feeling and preventing overeating.

Roti, primarily made from flour, is a rich source of complex carbohydrates, which help stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce cravings after digestion.

Rice, a less common weight loss food, can be beneficial for some individuals due to its unique body composition and individual weight loss journeys.

Rice's high carbohydrate content offers a quick energy boost, aiding in fitness routines and weight loss exercises.

Rice is a heart-healthy option due to its low fat and cholesterol content, making it a better choice than roti, which often uses oil, which increases cholesterol.

Rice, when not accompanied by adequate fiber and protein, may not offer the same level of satiety as roti, potentially leading to overeating.
