I always had a hunch pasta wasn't as bad as they were saying it was.

Quote:The point the study made was more general: pasta did not deserve its fattening reputation. So, yes, on balance, more good news to add to the menu, now that a glass of red wine a day has been shown to increase levels of good cholesterol, coffee to guard against Parkinson’s, and chocolate to ward off Alzheimer’s. We are no longer told to stint on the butter, because fat turned out not to cause people to literally “get fat”, but on the other hand we must on no account eat any more poisonous bacon. Food scares and health guidelines now revolve so fast that it can only be a matter of time before the demon sugar gets rehabilitated or somehow kale turns out to be carcinogenic.

What next?

Let is be that bacon is necessary for vital bodily functions.

We're on a low carb diet, my wife makes pasta from zucchini. I can't tell the difference between it and regular.

Well the article also explained that the amount you eat at a sitting and times per week makes all the difference. I would also think what type of sauce you eat it with may be the fat maker culprit - same with eating salad with a high calorie dressing.

Eggs are now good.

Butter is now good.

Potatoes are now good.

Peanuts and Peanut Butter are now good. Some recent evidence has shown increased weight loss for people who replace less healthy proteins, such as processed meats, with peanut butter.

My strategy is to eat three moderate meals of basic, unprocessed food. No snacks, no fast food or junk food. I don't eat meat with nitrates, like bacon.

Now high cholesterol may be good for us elderly folks. Is big pharma doing all the studies and giving us the fake news?

As I get older, I naturally want to eat lighter (no snacking, junk food rarely) and less meat for sure, but I like to indulge in bacon now and again (moderately).

Same for us, but bacon is on the menu once in a great while.
Nitrates can cause elevated BP and have been linked to cancer so we limit them.
I personally avoid tyramine like the plague, foods containing that give me migraines, and can't handle any form of sulfite, so wine and cheese are off the table.

Your link was behind a paywall so I can't read the article, but I imagine it's based on the study of 23,000 Italians?

The Truth About The Pasta-Won't-Make-You-Fat Study

Everything in moderation. Even too much water will kill you.

Common sense goes a long way. Eat mainly what grows where you live and other local produce, that is sustainable. I eat shitloads of berries because they grow in abundance here.

And also it's not chocolate that is healthy, it's the cocoa part in it.

Funny you should mention sulfite levels, because I just switched to drinking only wine from France and so far every one I tried seems to not affect me in adverse ways as wines from other countries do.

Sulfites are the only food additive known to kill a few people yearly. I know that only because I have the same problem, It gave me a life threatening asthma attack and I don't have asthma.

It sounds like you had a serious allergic reaction. But, sulfites are mostly found in processed foods, so it's easy to avoid. But for determining levels of sulfites in wine, I will have to do some more experimenting in this area.

Makes it hard to breathe, and the glands in my throat swell to the size of golf balls.
Painful as hell, and then comes the hour migraine.
Big fun that glass of wine... I'll stick to puffpuffpass.gif on occasion.

I'm telling you JR, the French wine I've tried so far, no problem.

Quote:Luckily, many companies are now making bacon cured without sodium nitrites now—just plain old sodium—meaning they're safer than traditional cuts. Plus, pork bacon can even relay health benefits since pork is a great source of protein and heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAS). Just bear in mind that serving size matters, so don't pig out. A few slices are all you need.

So here we go, bacon is becoming good now - I mean, good as always.

Aged cheeses have naturally occurring sulfites, so it's probably a good idea to avoid cheddar and hard cheeses, Romano Parmesan etc.
