When it comes to maintaining a healthy body weight

When it comes to maintaining a healthy body weight, pasta has a poor reputation. Recently, a group of Italian researchers set out to investigate the matter and their findings are rather surprising. They examined more than 23,000 Italians, paying particular attention to health indicators and eating habits.

They suggest that moderate pasta consumption can contribute to a healthy body mass index, lower waist circumference and improved waist-hip ratio.
