Whole Wheat Pasta WTF

22 posts in this topic

OK, this is a question for all you skinny ass people or people that are trying to get in shape. I have been buying whole wheat pasta at the grocery store and had whole wheat pasta at Olive Garden (OG sucks but the wife is prego and had a craving) last night. I ran once two weeks ago and I don't want to waste that workout. WTF, am I wasting my time with this sh*t or is it really better for me?

Thanks in advance. Also, who in the hell can eat just one Oreo?

It's good, I like it. But there is whole wheat pasta and multi-grain pasta. Which is better?

:lol:

I work out a lot, but eat pretty bad sometimes, so I'm not the best one for advice on this... I do know this, eating good is more expensive, especially if you have to eat out a lot... and that sucks.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't make much difference if you eat a sensible portion.

5 lb of anything is bad.

Much better for you, and it makes you bowel movements much easier to pass, while being healthier at the same time.

Check the ingredients though on what you buy. Some are sold as "whole wheat", but have a TON of fat containing ingredients to make it.

Buyer beware in other words. :cheers2:

check the ingredients, if it says enriched....fill in the blank....flour, you might as well be eating regular stuff. Look for whole grains - be it whole wheat or whole whatever else grain. Can't help you with taste though in case you're asking which tastes better.

I ate half for dinner and half for lunch today. I'm good on the portion sizes. I'm just curious if wheat pasta is really that much better than regular pasta.

    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
