Cooking Rice With Fewer Calories

Someone pointed me to an article in the Washington Post about reducing the calories in rice by adding coconut oil before cooking and immediately cooling the rice afterwards. It turns out doing this changes the chemicals in the rice creating the reduction in calories.

What the article doesn’t tell you is exactly how the rice is changed or how the macronutrients are affected. Until that information comes out I’m skeptical and wouldn’t recommend it.
