    Hello there...

    I am currently trying to bulk and my main source of carbs has been rice (white rice and wild rice). Is this any good? Are there carbs that may be better for bulking?

    In my opinion it's good for putting on fat.
    I won't recommend you have white rice as your main carb source, or eat any large amount of higher gi grain based carbs.

    Better carbs for bulking would be smaller amounts of lower GI carbs, brown rice would be better for example but generally roots/veg/low sugar fruit (sweet potatoes, berries etc) would be a good choice due to higher micronutrient content.

    Wild rice is a much better choice than white.

    I'd rather have the sweet potato if that's what you mean but sweet pot's don't go with a chilli con carne aswell as rice

    Nothing wrong with white rice. It lacks in fibre but thats it. If your concerned with GI then Basmati is technically the best. Some people get away without worrying about it though.

    Skip La Cour used to eat buckets of white rice and white potatoes in his competitive days and he was always looking good.

    eat white rice if thats what you want. If you start getting too fat switch to basmati.
