    pasta is BIG time calories and will add the lbs icon_sad.gif it is carbs ! I know, I know I love pasta too lol but it is weight gaining material icon_smile.gif pasta is a processed carb. It will be hard to lose the body fat if you are consuming a lot of this.

    if you had to make a choice I would choose potatoes icon_smile.gif hope this helps

    Some people like to eat potatoes and some like to eat pasta. But I eat both of these foods because both are really helpful to maintain the body weight.
