I've read about this on multiple platforms and just saw it on TV again, so I thought I would share this method with you. Scientists have proven that by simply cooking your rice with some coconut oil, it changes the rice's digestible starch to indigestible starch, which prevents much of the rice from being metabolized into glucose, cutting the calories by about 60%. That's huge! The only difference is, you must let it sit in the fridge before you eat it. Here's what you need:
Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add coconut oil and rice to pot. Cover, lower heat, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Let rice cool, then chill in the fridge for at least 12 hours. Reheat before serving.
