"You do not eat rice."

Exactly - I am a native speaker and it's only used in dish names because it's technically a contraction of 米飯 and meals as indicate as such because rice is literally what makes a meal for most of us except when there's well... Noodles. But if we're taking about rice on it's own it is always 米, if anything it'd be more correct to say 你吃米 rather than 你吃飯.
Come to think of it we even use 糯米 for sticky rice.
