Pasta Linked with Lower BMI, Less Central Obesity
To see how pasta relates to obesity, researchers analyzed the eating habits, BMI, and abdominal obesity of more than 23,000 adults across Italy. The researchers found that, after statistically correcting pasta intake for body weight, pasta intake was linked with significantly lower BMIs and central obesity (measured by waist to hip ratio, and waist and hip circumferences), even after adjusting for total calories and adherence to the Mediterranean diet.
Pasta intake was also correlated with the intake of other healthy foods, including tomatoes, onions, garlic, olive oil, seasoned cheese, typical of the Mediterranean Diet.

@Int_Pasta_Org So true!! Pasta is so popular, especially now during the pandemic, that all brands are in short supply in the Berkshires in MA. Many supermarkets only allow 2 pounds to be sold per customer
