It depends on your nutritional goals, and depends on the sushi.

If you want to go lower carb, then the rice is not your friend. If you're simply lower calorie, then it can be a good choice... as long as you're not going with the sauced, fried, tempura-anything choices too much.

It's like most kinds of foods: you can probably find ways to enjoy it, if you keep your specific goals in mind!

And if you are pro rice then request brown Smile. I go for a tuna pacific roll with brown rice or similar. Healthy fat in the avacado and tuna, protein and for the times I give into the rice at least it's got the pro of being less refined as far as carbs go. I actually prefer the texture of brown rice in sushi. If you want low carb you'll have to go sashimi and no sauces either way. Enjoy!

I've never been to a sushi bar that makes sushi with brown rice. Don't expect to find that. Consider yourself lucky if you do.

It's easy to over-order. They have giant rolls that pack in so many carbs it's not on anybody's diet but an athlete in training. I do sashimi.

Wow, guess I'm lucky... maybe it's a local thing, most around here do. Although most you have to as. Worth a shot!

maybe nobody has added the type of hot dogs you have eaten into the database. If the food is not there you need to add to database then it can be added to your food diary

trouble adding item that you.
according to your profile you updated your weight yesterday, and you have been adding food to your food diary, so not quite sure what the problem is?
