Food change can problem in my Health???

I'm from India and in India Rice and Wheat are most important food for us. In lunch time I eat Rice and at Dinner I eat Wheat but now I noticed that slowly slowly I'm going to fat and lazy and energy is gone slowly slowly. So I decided that I eat only wheat on Lunch & Dinner, and I stop eating Rice. So my question is, there is any problem if I don't eat Rice and eat only Wheat??? Please suggest me.

Thank you.

Welcome to e health forum.

It seems that your main problem is obesity, and you are looking to change your diet, and reduce your weight.

The idea is good but the steps you have taken might not work to a great extent.

Whether you eat foods prepared with Rice or Wheat, the thing you need to know is the calorific value. Both Whole Rice and Wheat have a total calorific value of about 350-370 kCals ( per 100gm), but Wheat has a much higher Fat (9.7gm) and Protein (23.15 gm) content when compared with Rice ( Fat 1.3 & Protein 0.66).

Hence Wheat is a much complete food as it has a balanced composition of all nutrients.

But with respect to dieting for obesity management, too much of either rice or wheat foods, may not work. You need to have everything in moderation, and the ultimate aim would be to reduce the total calorie intake per day, as well as to increase the daily calorie use - by regular physical exercises, workouts etc.

You may consult with a dietitian who can help you reach your goals.

I hope this helps.
