Okay ladies, prepare to never eat zoodles again, because the carb police are taking the year off. That’s because the Italian Neuromed Institute (which is either super legit or part of the mafia) just published a study that finds that eating pasta regularly can actually make you skinnier and healthier.
Here’s exactly what they said: "We have seen that consumption of pasta, contrary to what many think, is not associated with an increase in body weight, rather the opposite. Our data show that enjoying pasta according to individuals' needs contributes to a healthy body mass index, lower waist circumference and better waist-hip ratio.”
This is all very exciting, but it’s important to remember that you should still keep the portions small, and also that Italian women can eat nothing but pasta and wine and weigh 95 pounds. There are obviously more details going on with the science behind this, but we were liberal arts majors for a reason. Honestly, all we want to do right now is put on a bikini and eat a giant plate of spaghetti. Is Eataly open at 10am?
