Pasta linked to lower BMI

According to

Pasta linked to lower BMI - CNN.com

"A little bit of what's irresistible is good for you, Italian scientists have discovered. Their analysis of more than 23,000 people found that eating some pasta is associated with a lower body mass index. Those who enjoyed their noodles were less likely to be overweight and obese."

More evidence supporting the Mediterranean diet.

It's not that I don't believe them.....but I'm pretty sure my excess body weight is made of pasta.

From the article:

"A little bit of what's irresistible is good for you..."

A little bit.... And therein lies my downfall.

You get as much satisfaction from eating a cup of cooked pasta as you do from eating a half cup of ice cream (standard portion size). That is to say, none.

larry!


I think it depends on how rich that 1/2 cup of ice cream is, Andy. Pasta is pasta, but Graeter's is unbelievably rich. Like hand-made-from-scratch rich. Like "I"m gonna need to diet for a month after I finish this pint" rich. When I bought the first pint, I did the 1/2 cup serving thing, four servings to the pint. For the next pint, it took Himself and me six servings to finish it. It's that good.

He didn't like the Salted Caramel one I got recently. It was all mine - so I did one soup spoon scoop of it every time I wanted ice cream. Even at a spoonful every night, it took me almost two weeks to finish it. It's. That. Rich.

Now pasta? Except for shape and white flour/whole wheat flour thing, it's pretty much just pasta. Not that I'm complaining!
