Rice, like oatmeal, starts out dry and inedible only to fluff up with water during the cooking process—offering a hydrating side to any meal. Your typical rice recipe is one part rice to two parts water, and a pinch of salt. One cup of cooked white rice weighs approximately 177 grams, and of those, a whopping 133 grams are water. Even further, the added salt will help your body retain the water long after the takeout is gone.
