If you know me well you know I loveeeeee pasta! There’s a misconception that “pasta” itself makes you fat…. SAY WHAT? Well… let me tell you that what matters most at the end of the day is how much calories are you consuming VS burning! If your goal is to lose weight then you should be in a caloric deficit (which means burning more calories than you consume) so of course you might want to choose lighter options or stay within your calorie “budget” BUT…. if you are still on a caloric deficit while eating pasta you will STILL LOSE FAT! However, there’s still so much you need to take into consideration when choosing your meals (satiety, blood sugar, health concerns, physique goals, etc.) Eating junk food or eating carbs while still in a caloric deficit will make you lose weight but will also make you UNHEALTHY and can cause diseases! Your nutrition should be 80% Whole Foods and 20% not so healthy food options😋😁 (80/20 rule is always a good idea to stay healthy while not feeling restricted all the time).
SO ENJOY PASTA ONCE AND IF YOU CAN MAKE A HEALTHIER&BALANCED OPTION!
