my doc said strict no to Rice and digestive biscuits. can anyone explain me the reason for it. moreover I have high temptations for digestive biscuits can I eat atleast 3-4 a day. plz suggest.

are you pregnant or a mother ?

iam 32 weeks pregnant.

Ok. I guess inorder to manage your/baby weight your doctor would've told so. cos when I was in 32,34weeks, I started to put on more weight, my gynac told me to reduce carbohydrate(rice) and suggested me to take millets, brown rice, raagi, wheat,etc. Guess that may be a reason. Not sure why your gynac told "no" to biscuits. May be to avoid constipation.

hmm. thanks subha. I guess iam already overweight so may be that must be the reason.

Rice and biscuits are high glycemic foods and will cause blood sugar fluctuations. They will also contribute to weight gain. Also it is possible that the doctor suspects an elevated sugar level. It is best you stay away from biscuits as they are saturated fats and empty calories.
