S/C/G: 275/155/189/???

Height: 5'5"


Rice, even brown rice, is so calorie-dense that I find myself more and more skipping it entirely and bulking out my meal with greens instead.

That said, the others have it - 170 calories sounds like about 3/4 cup cooked rice, or about 1/4 cup before cooking.

I promise this will get easier the more you do it - you will start to develop a feel for the number of calories in foods you eat a lot, and labeling will become less puzzling as that happens.
High weight: 275 (August 2009) *** Low weight: 155 (October 2012)
Today, working off a partial regain. Current weight: 189.
* Make the best choice I can make, with every choice.
* Remember that the temptation in front of me is not the last of its kind that I will ever see; say "I'll pass today."
* Say "no!" to my whiny inner five-year-old.
