A New study says “Eating pasta could help you live longer”
Following low-carb diets, such as Atkins, increases the risk of dying young, experts found.
Scientists say people who eat a “moderate” amount of carbs can expect to live four years longer.
They suggest an optimum level of 50 to 55 percent of calories from carbohydrates, which are typically found in potatoes, pasta and bread.
Scientists found people who ate fewer carbs had a 20 percent higher risk of premature death.
Low-carb diets tend to result in a lower intake of healthy fruit, vegetables and grains — and more meat. This can lead to a loss of nutrients, harmful inflammation and biological aging.
