“The study found that that pasta didn’t contribute to weight gain or increase in body fat,” explained Dr. John Sievenpiper, consultant physician at St Michael’s Hospital and the lead author of this godsend of a study. “So contrary to concerns, perhaps pasta can be part of a healthy diet such as low-GI diet. 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.”
The researchers did clarify, however, that further research would need to be done to see the effect of pasta when combined with other healthy diets.
But this is definitely good news for pasta-lovers (the human race) in the meantime.
