Hmm, we're on brown rice at home... But on whites during office hours. I typically prefer soupy noodles myself. Have no idea why pasta would be better than rice, we are talking about wheat flour here aren't we?
It has to do with glycemic index: how quickly a particular food , once in your GI tract, dumps sugar into your bloodstream. Clearly, slower more sustained release is better. Complex carbs are very good. Sweet potatoes much better than regular potatoes. Easy to find plenty of online resources.

Brown rice glycemic index is somewhat better than white rice but actually you'd be better off with pasta.
May I respectfully suggest you look at research on connection between animal fat and cellular resistance to insulin uptake? I had gained some weight and developed borderline blood sugars (HbA1c was 6.4. My doctor recommended I try a vegan, no concentrated sweets lifestyle involving no carb counting. I shed weight easily, eat my fill, and in under four months my HbA1c was 5.6. Spot checks of fasting and post prandial sugars show ongoing normal levels.

I understand this is not a way many people choose to live (many of the senior for whom I'm a community case management nurse are type two diabetics and not one has wanted to make major changes - and I have a strict no-nagging policy). But it certainly merits your attention and consideration.
Best of luck to you.
Thanks for the advice janet! This sure will help me.
