Interesting, I've never heard of the rice diet before, but it's an interesting concept to think about. I do know that rice milk is fairly easy for the body to process, and it's also super easy to prepare. I don't have any heart issues, but I would be interested in trying out this diet for a few days just to see how my body reacts.
