The consumption of carbohydrates has been linked to the growing obesity crisis, but researchers at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto believe that pasta specifically doesn't deserve this negative reputation.
"So contrary to concerns, perhaps pasta can be part of a healthy diet such as a low GI diet", lead author Dr John Sievenpiper, a clinician scientist with the hospital's Clinical Nutrition and Risk Modification Centre, said in a statement.

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!
But, before you overindulge in pasta, it's worth noting that further research needs to be carried out to determine whether eating pasta can have the same effect when combined with other healthy diets.
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.
Result showed that participants who ate pasta rather than other refined carbohydrates actually lost a small amount of weight during the study. Are there any foods you eat that help you shed the kilos?
