Stop everything, turns out pasta eaters are actually THINNER!!
New research has shown that instead of pasta eaters piling on the pounds, as was previously believed to be the case, they have a healthier hip-to-waist ratio, as well as a smaller waist.
Which is amazing news because, well LOOK at how delicious it is!
The research team say, “Our findings show a negative association of pasta consumption with general and central obesity in two methodologically and geographically different, large Mediterranean populations.”
23,000 people were surveyed from two major Italian cities and it found those who had a higher intake of pasta didn’t necessarily have a raised BMI (body mass index) and waist to hip ratio.
