Thoughts on rice cakes? I use to love them with PB and a couple raisins on top

rice is CRAZY high in calories. A lb of rice has 4 times more calories than a lb or potatoes. Wouldn't it be better to eat chips ?

My thoughts,

Do they fit in your weight loss calories/macros for the day? If rice cakes are on your food plan, no need to ask if they are ok to eat.

Not really a health food but not particularly evil as well, lol. If you like them, eat them. I like them to eat once in a while with Peanut Butter as well (have to try the raisin thing) or with other sweet spreads. I came to prefer the corn variation though.

ETA: my husband likes them with ham and cheese. 🤮🤢

I gave my thoughts. If they fit your plan, calorie/macros go for it. They taste like any other rice cake,

Honestly? I'd rather eat straight sugar or starch. They are very high glycemic, very low in Fiber, occupy real estate that at this point in your recovery should be dedicated to Protein.

In maintenance? If they're your jam. Go for it if it fits in your daily balance.

At your stage I focused on protein, al dente veg, and tiny bit of healthy fats. I reached 1st goal at about Month 9 or something like that? Lemme go look in my footer.

Now when I want something crunchy, I either make some low carb version or I eat a GG Brancrisp or a Wasa with Fiber.

Shouldn't even look at rice for months... Very bad carbs and very thick for your little stomach.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
