White rice is a great source of carbohydrate. With so many delicious additions you might find it easy to overindulge on rice, and too much rice too often is no good. Your body converts white rice to glucose quickly, which is why too much of it, like too much of any carbohydrate, can trigger insulin resistance, fatigue, weight gain, and a host of other issues.
