Rice increases in volume between 2-3 times. Much depends on the type of rice used and how dry the rice is. So, between 1/3 and 1/2 cup. There is no exact answer to the question.
rice doubles when cooking. Sometimes if it is really fresh it will more than double, but just a little more. A good rule is to use 1/2 cup of uncooked rice to get 1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup of uncooked rice + 1 Cup of water or other liquid will yeild 1 cup of cooked rice. The ratio for cooking rice is 1 to 2.
Example: 1 cup uncooked rice plus two cup of liquid = 2 cups of rice.
cook on a real low heat and let simmer until water is absorbed.
First of all, it’s important to consider whether or not it is safe fro your dog to gain weight. You should think about the condition of your dog – adding more weight, if your dog is already at a decent size, will destroy his joints and cause him to become arthritic. It could also kill him if you feed him the wrong things and it ruins his internal organs in other ways. The safest way to really make sure he is safe is to feed him a balanced diet – and that is usually kibble. If he was starved, adding weight too fast could kill him – that requires the help of a vet, and must be done gradually… But if you are doing it o have others impressed with your Pit Bull, the best thing you can do is to get him plenty of safe, well balanced exercise – but not too much. A healthy dog with a beautiful coat that is friendly is a really impressive sight, not an animal that no one can get near… look at the people who train tigers. It isn’t the ones who just say “tigers are dangerous” that are impressive – it’s the ones whose animals are docile and loving – and that is what a dog is really made for. Please do the best you can for yours – that is the most impressive thing you can do.
