One cup of cooked white rice contains an average of 200 calories so it's treated by many as a 'not all the time" food.
The secret? Coconut oil.
And all you have to do is add a little bit of coconut oil to the cooking process, then allow it to cool overnight, Better Homes and Gardens reported.
he reason why adding a substance like coconut oil works to reduce the overall calories is relatively simple: the fat molecules find their way inside the rice during the boiling process and double as a digestive barrier.
Couple that with letting it cool for 12 hours - which makes the bonds in the rice form stronger 'resistant starches' and makes it difficult for digestive enzymes to break down - and you've practically got a cheat meal on your hands.
