All the spaghetti lovers can rejoice, because according to a new study, eating pasta can actually help people lose weight.
Canadian researchers from St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto have made a ground-breaking food discovery revealing that pasta does not make you put on weight.
If that newsflash doesn’t stop you in your linguine-slurping tracks, please note: it gets better. Their study, released in the BMJ Open journal overnight, found that pasta can help you lose weight when consumed as part of a healthy, low Glycemic Index (GI) diet.
We’re not talking masses of weight loss here – the study observed a low-GI diet that includes pasta can help you lose up to half a kilogram over 12 weeks.
But one message is clear as a result of this study: dieters need not fear that eating carby macaroni will ruin their weight loss efforts. This news shows that you can be on a diet, have carbohydrates in the form of pasta and lose weight too.
