Eat rice wisely.

Choose the types of rice that offer a lower-glycemic load like brown rice, Uncle Ben's converted white rice, or (if you can find it) Bangladesh rice. The next rule of thumb is to serve only half a cup to keep the glycemic load down. Lastly, make sure not to serve rice with other starchy carbohydrates like rice and a tortilla used in a burrito. Stick with one or the other.
