This means that they cause smaller increases in blood sugar levels and are less likely to affect your waistline. Both groups had their body weight, BMI, body fat, and waist measurements taken at the start and finish, with the results then published in the paper. But a study linking pasta to weight loss suggests the Italian staple has been wrongly vilified. Now, dieters also consume it in high amount through which they can reduce a small amount of their weight. The researchers looked the impact of pasta consumption on the body, and almost 2,500 participants take part in 30 randomized controlled trials.

"The study found that pasta didn't contribute to weight gain or increase in body fat", Dr. John Sievenpiper said in the press release.

Keto, Atkins, detox and pretty much everything that forbids one from even thinking about carbs might be the go-to raging trend when it comes to weight loss diets these days, but looks like it's finally time for ardent pasta lovers to rejoice!

Access To Medical Marijuana May Be Helping Reduce Opioid Abuse
Two just-published clinical trials from Israel (where medical cannabis use is legally permitted) further affirm this phenomenon. Montana regulators are preparing additional adjustments to the rules for the state's medical marijuana program.

The results of the research could also be attributed to an overall low-GI diet, but that doesn't mean that pasta is your arch nemesis if you're trying to lose weight. The researchers learned that on average, eating pasta as part a low-glycemic index diet reduced weight by a little more than half a kilogram and body mass index by about one-quarter kg/m2 after 12 weeks. Having only three pasta meals a week, consumed as part of a low-glycemic diet, all the participants in this study managed to lose about 500 grams.

They didn't find any trials focusing on pasta alone, and they suggest that future trials should be done to examine the impact of eating pasta as part of other types of healthy diets. Study participants ate 3.3 servings of around a half cup of pasta on average each week.

"If you want to lose weight, look at portion control, a diet that is tailored to your needs, and up your exercise so that you're burning off more calories than you eat". In general, it's always a good idea to eat a diet rich in fresh vegetables and fruits, following any special dietary guidelines given to you by your doctors.
