Rice is inflammatory and we do not recommend it on the diet. It also contains high amounts of starch and low amounts of sugar. It is high in the GI index.
We have a strict forum food list that does not allow brown rice. Email able900 if you want a copy.
A great alternative is buckhweat which is typically more agreeable for everyone on the diet.
I have only just now added brown rice in stage 3 of the diet.
