>>Is basmati rice good as a substitute for long grain white rice? I
am sure brown rice is healthier,

Basmati is variety of rice that can be found in both the refined
white and the whole grain brown version. The Brown Basmati rice
would be your best choice. It is regularly available and I even have
found it at the local costco and BJs.

>>but is it ok to eat basmati while trying to lose weight?

Losing weight isnt about any one food, good or bad. Loosing
weight is about a total aproach. However, i recommend focusing
your diet on foods low in calorie density for weight loss and rice is
a low calorie dense food. Not as low as fruits and vegetables, but
still fairly low.
