It's Everything We Always Dreamed.
After years of carbs being demonized as "bad for you" (I see you, South Beach), we finally have a study that confirms all your greatest dreams at once — inhaling a spaghetti bolognese isn't committing "carbicide." In fact, it has a place in a healthy and balanced diet.
A study published in the Nutrition & Diabetes journal has found that pasta may actually be better for your waistline, rather than making you put on weight. Although it's worth noting that this study was carried out by researchers at the Neuromed Institute in Pozzilli, Italy — and Italians are the kings of pasta.
