Eating pasta may help you lose weight according to study

But the researchers pointed out in their conclusion that eating pasta as part of a low GI diet is likely what helped these people lose weight - not the pasta alone.

A group of researchers from the University of Toronto and St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto published the results of their study on eating pasta in the journal BMJ Open.

Anyone who has battled weight problems for any length of time knows that high-carbohydrate foods are often implicated in them. Now, pasta is also a part of a healthy diet because it includes fruits, vegetables, beans and other low-fat dairy foods. The results could be explained by the fact that lower GI foods satiate hunger better, and therefore prevented people from consuming more food, according to the authors. But a study linking pasta to weight loss suggests the Italian staple has been wrongly vilified.

The study, published in journal BMJ Open, involved several control trials with nearly 2,500 people who ate 3.3 servings of pasta a week instead of other forms of carbs.

The big question for the Spurs - and their fans - isn't whether Kawhi Leonard is going to return this season. He returned for a nine-game stretch in December and January, averaging 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds.

"In weighing the evidence, we can now say with some confidence that pasta does not have an adverse effect on body weight outcomes when it is consumed as part of a healthy dietary pattern", Sievenpiper said. Pasta is getting a good reputation. In fact, you may even be able to lose weight. Participants ate 3.3 serving of pasta in a week instead of other forms of carbs while they kept to a low-GI diet.

Researchers say participants in a 12-week trial lost a little more than one pound. Pasta is different than most high-carb foods because it has a low glycemic index, which could be the reason it doesn't cause weight gain when eaten in limited amounts.

For showing the effect of pasta, researchers combining it with other healthy diets and finally it doesn't have any negative impact on body weights. Are there any foods you eat that help you shed the kilos?
