Eating like an American could be killing you.


It isn't just you.

Found this on the internet.



Pop quiz: Who’s your all-time favorite Italian-American actor?

A. Marlon Brando (The Godfather)
B. Henry Winkler (The Fonz)
C. Snooki (The Trainwreck)

"Okay, it's a trick question. None of the three is actually Italian. And that means they have a lot in common with the pasta dishes coming out of the kitchens of America's chain restaurants. They're Italian in appearance, but dig deeper and you'll realize that they're reckless imitations with a good PR team. Eater discretion is advised.

Now get this: Pasta supposedly makes you fat, right? Well, Italians eat an estimated 60 pounds of pasta per year, but only 10 to 20 percent of Italian adults are obese. Americans, on the other hand, chow down only 20 pounds of pasta each year, and a full third of us are obese.

Part of the reason: Restaurants keep noodling with our noodles. Butter, cream, oil, egregious portion sizes—you name it, they’ll do it (not unlike Snooki and the girls of Jersey Shore!).""

Re: Eating like an American could be killing you.

We were doing a job where there was a super market up the road that had a great salad bar we use to hit every day. One of the things I use to get about 3 times a week was this killer pasta and spinach salad they had. At the time I thought I was eating healthy and didn’t realize how much of a killer it really was until I saw how much oil it contained. I let it sit while I took care of something and when I got to eat it that ¼ lb container I had was sitting in about 2 ounces of olive oil.I still got it but not 3 times a week anymore.
A big pile of pasta is good if you’re going to go run or work it off, to eat it for dinner then go veg out or go to sleep is not a good thing.

Re: Eating like an American could be killing you.

I don't think it's pasta that's making Americans fat. Look at what people have in their shopping carts the next time you go to the store.

Cases of soda, big bags of chips, boxes of ice cream, Ding Dongs, Ho-hos, Little Debbies, Tasty-kakes, that nasty white bread...

Please don't kill the messenger, but anyone serious about losing weight should give up, sigh, beer.

There's a reason why they call them "beer bellies."
