Pasta: The secret to a lower BMI and small waistline

Good news, pasta lovers! Thanks to a recently published study by (I think you know who) Italians in Nutritionand Diabetes that found out eating pasta does not contribute to obesity and instead is linked to a lower body mass index or BMI.

For years, diet researchers in Italy have worried about the fattening reputation of pasta all over the diet world, especially with the rise of low carb, high protein diet. So they set out to prove otherwise, with their study that comprised of 23,000 participants, surveying their eating habits. The results are definitely enough to repair pasta’s reputation—finding no link to pasta consumption and weight gain.

“Our data shows that enjoying pasta according to individuals' needs contributes to a healthy body mass index, lower waist circumference and better waist-hip ratio.”, says lead author of the paper George Pounis. And they recommend eating pasta as part of a Mediterranean diet rich in vegetables and olive oil, for healthier results.

Thanks to this recent evidence that says pasta helps fight obesity and maintain a small waistline, we can now definitely take ‘pasta’ off our no-no list.

  1. BMI can be employed globally to learn whether an individual is over weight. As BMI can be used only for an screening device, anybody who states that you're at health hazard prior to performing every other tests is lying. Doctors will display screen men and women for health problems after simply because their BMI is preceding normal.My suggestion will be to shoot your own BMI and put it inside the garbage. Over time, I've discovered the BMI indicator is merely a way to gauge the volume of a person but doesn't resemble its condition of wellness and on occasion even if they are over weight or not believe.Here are BMI Calculator through which you can calculate your body mass index, body fat percentage although waist to height ratio,instantly.
