One of my very dear friends posted that sheโ€™s going to give up pasta to loose weight. Isnโ€™t that considered unpatriotic for Italians?

Not sure about that. I am much healthier on a low carb diet. I lost over 100 lbs and have kept it off. It is true I get over 30 minutes aerobic a day.

Italians don’t just eat pasta. At least my Italian family doesn’t. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Agreed. When I was in Venice I had a local dish - "Sarde in saor" anchovies w/onions and pine nuts, polenta on the side.
It definitely wasn't my favorite dish in Italy, but I like to try the local fare.

I would also. I can’t have gluten so I have limits.

There is pasta made from lentils, chickpeas, quinoa, lots of options besides standard flour.

Those are still high in carbs. I use miracle noodles or zucchini noodles. This was in fun. The lady that posted it it’s on one of my other post and I consider her a very good friend.

I am not sure she’ll probably pop in here. I consider her a very dear friend although we’ve never met

No. We are more than pasta. Fish, chicken, fresh veggies. I have given it up. I don’t miss it.

Pasta is a “no-no” when trying to lose weight.
Your friend rocks!

There's more to Italian food than pasta and pizza.
They have great antipasti, seafood, salads etc.
A Mediterranean diet is said to be healthy.
