I have been on and off diets for years, but the one thing that has always worked for me was my rice diet. It may seem a little weird at first, but I promise you that eventually you will love it and crave it for dinner. I had this rice every night for dinner for about 3-4 months and lost about 30 pounds. Trust me, it is worth it in the long run, and actually really tasty!!! Can use regualr white rice, brown rice, or my favorite: long-grain white rice!
