I am loosing my appetite for white rice. How many Haitians can say that?

It took me a while to realize this but whenever I eat white rice it takes me a long time to go to the bathroom.

Did you know? White rice can cause constipation

The other thing I hate about eating white rice is this: After eating it my stomach is full but I feel hungry. Does that happen to you?
