1. How To Eat Healthy: Embrace The Noodle
Good news for noodle fans: A recent study published in Nutrition & Diabetes links pasta consumption with a lower BMI and reduced obesity. Researchers believe this is due to pasta’s traditional presence in the Mediterranean diet, which is known to be slimming. To reap the benefits, stick to a healthy serving size (just 1/2 to 2/3 cup cooked pasta at lunch or dinner) and fill the rest of your plate with veggies and lean meats, fish or beans.
