According to recent studies, Italian pasta may help with weight loss, according to The Daily Mail.
As the experiment showed, people who ate about three servings of pasta a week, dropped 500 grams in 12 weeks.
Unlike other starchy foods, pasta is a low glycemic index. So it does not cause spikes in blood sugar. And we know that foods with a low glycemic index promote saturation. This reduces overall caloric intake.
The researchers emphasize: one serving of pasta equals to around half a medium Cup of the finished dish. Excessive consumption of pasta will definitely lead to weight gain. For products with a high glycemic index include products with modified starch, dried fruit, potatoes, rice, bread, popcorn, muesli, watermelon, couscous, semolina, chocolate.
