Oats Upma

I am in a very strong oath to reduce weight. I am totally skipping rice. I am literally hunting down for riceless recipes. Read somewhere that GI is least in Basmati Rice than Brown Rice. So those of you who are considering the Diet Factor and having Brown Rice instead of White Rice should replan and consider Basmati Rice to Brown Rice. Pesarattu, Oats Idly, Horsegram Upma are some of the things I survive on for 2 meals a day. The rest one meal is multi grain Chapati. Are you planning to dit? Share your dieting tips too..
