Watch Your Pasta Intake

“Pasta Health Advise From Our Burlington Clinic Experts”

Many people think that eating pasta frequently is good for you, but you should consider the following.

White and whole wheat pasta both contain gluten; a protein that is not all that friendly to the human body.

Also, these have a high glycemic index which means that they are easily converted into sugar.

Sugar then causes your pancreas to secrete insulin and too much insulin in the body can cause a multitude of health problems.

So here are a couple of healthy pasta-eating tips…

Cook your pasta al dente – the harder it is, the lower the glycemic index.

Foods that have a low glycemic index are healthier foods & better for you.

Choose gluten-free pasta or rice pasta.

These are much healthier for you.

Pasta is best when eaten as a lunch dish or before athletic activity.

This way you will burn off the calories that it provides.

Having a large amount of pasta for your dinner-time meal will just cause weight gain, bold sugar issues & stress on your heart.

Think light & eat right – smaller portions more frequently throughout the day will work much better for you.
