    I would enjoy the french fries more so that would be my choice.

    Are you asking this question in the context of one meal (which I hope you've eaten already or this thread will take a sudden turn), or in the context of a frequent diet staple? Are you eating any protein? Is this a real question?

    Hate French fries, but not sure that rice sounds much better. I would go with the cake sandwich.

    Yes real question sometimesyoudont have the best choice to eat in life so you must make decision so I needed to ask someone besides family. No protein, I just want to see if it's better to eat a lot of fries and possible risk inflammation and diabetes, plus i crease risk of chemicals or eat more rice and increase risk of diabetes even more but without fried grease covering it .

    You know you don't get diabetes from eating starches, unless you're eating so much they're causing you to gain weight. I still don't know if you are talking about a single meal or a daily staple.

    Um a meal

    If it's just now and then, eat whichever you like more and enjoy :)

    What about the diabetic index

    You mean the glycemic index? That isn't something you need to worry about if you're not insulin resistant.

    But what would you eat mph?

    I'd eat the rice because I like it better :)

    But insulin resistance can occur.

    Sure, but it's not caused by eating starches. It's generally triggered by genetics or being overweight.

    Your kidding me where did you get that from? If I may ask what is


    https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diabetes/overview/symptoms-causes

    "Overweight, obesity, and physical inactivity

    You are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if you are not physically active and are overweight or obese. Extra weight sometimes causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. The location of body fat also makes a difference. Extra belly fat is linked to insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and heart and blood vessel disease. To see if your weight puts you at risk for type 2 diabetes, check out these Body Mass Index (BMI) charts."

    Okay, still not sure if serious, but for one meal on occasion, it does not matter.

    However, if we are talking about something regular, where the entire meal is fries or rice (as you said when I asked before), my answer is that you don't actually live in a world where those are the only two choices and neither is a good balanced choice for a meal. (I am assuming that the other meals are not protein and veg based and this is just a weirdly structured day.)

    What would I eat? Neither. I would make sure my day allowed for meals with more protein and vegetables.

    Beyond that, I don't really like rice that much (heresy, I know), and fried potatoes are, IMO, only rarely worth the calories, so I'd have roasted potatoes as a side dish with some vegetables and some kind of higher protein food.

    One exception is that I do like beans and rice, so I might have rice with beans and vegetables as an option sometimes.

    Hope that helps!
