Pasta is delicious but it is not always the healthiest option on any given menu. So, I wanted to see if there was a way to change that. Can we make our pasta healthier by doing the LEAST amount possible? Call this a hack, but I think I've found the SECRET to healthier pasta. What is it? You'll have to watch to find out!

    • Oh god you actually believe this? So what if the carbs are lower, the calorie intake is the exact same. Calories are why you aren’t losing weight, not carbs!

    • @Queen Dani Carbs are not the issue, it’s calories, just know that changing the temperature of pasta will not affect calorie intake and therefore will have 0 affect on weight gain/weight loss

  • Want to know what reheating food constantly also does, literally destroys all nutritional value, so yes the negatives of the pasta go out the window but so do all those positives, you're basically going to be eating slop.

  • I don't know if it's accurate to call the pasta "healthier". It's more like we're making the food less efficient and, as a consequence, less fattening. If we still have to digest it then we're making our bodies do more work for the calories, thus wearing them down faster.

  • Isn't it bad to reheat your food multiple times? It gives bacteria a chance to grow while it's warm and can make you sick.

  • Im sorry but to be frank this video is bullshit. The problem isn’t that pasta is high in carbs (carbs are NOT bad for you) its that it is VERY calorie dense and it’s calories in calories out you can’t break the laws of thermodynamics lol Adjusting the temperature will not alter the calories of it. Way to use your massive platform to spread misinformation jackass.

  • The thing about pasta....yes it's high carb, but your body has to work really hard to break it down......making the effect of it a lot better than bread or potatoes. Eat the biggest chunkiest pasta you can find :) And yes......1 serving of pasta is shockingly small! In Italy, pasta is a side dish....not the whole meal.

  • This is so visibly false it’s insane. Reheating pasta a dozen times over barely lowers the Glycemic Index by a hair. It’s calories in, calories out. There’s no hack or secret to this: pasta is a high calorie food, and you can reheat it 20 times if you want, it doesn’t matter. If you want to lose weight, you have to be in a caloric deficit, and if you wanna be in a caloric deficit, you have to eat less pasta.

  • This video is so horribly uninformed and actively harmful it really makes me question Mat's intelligence. I really wasn't expecting to hear something so actively dumb from him. To anyone reading this that may have weight troubles, just watch your calories, that's all. It's that simple.

    Xeno CrossXeno Cross2 päivää sitten
  • In terms of weight loss, this is very misleading. Reheating pasta will NOT reduce the amount of calories it contains. Carbs are not the cause of obesity, high caloric intake and low caloric expenditure is the main cause. Carbs do indeed make you hungrier in some cases but will not directly cause you to gain weight. Reheating pasta will only SLIGHTLY lower its glycemic index, this barely impacts its calories. I am extremely disappointed, as matpat is usually pretty strong in his use of science for truth rather than spews. The best way to reduce calories by eating pasta is to either eat less of it, or buy a version with lower calories.
