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!

As someone who struggles with their carb intake and is studying biochemistry, this video was not only super enjoyable to watch, but so informative! Awesome video 🥰

@brutus the vandal ye but queen Dani (who has issues with carb intake) will eat more carbs thinking reheating it will make it healthy but since it has close to no difference and they will be eating more of it he/she could die have heart issues or die younger

Sonic goes to Olive Garden and gets a never ending pasta special and then gets enough carbs to be on the treadmill for a week and then after a week he sees this video and says I should’ve have known that they could of just microwave the pasta over and over again so I would get less carbs
My Opinion
My Opinion Day ago
I have noticed on TV, pasta is shown as a big bowl of pasta with a little bit of 'sauce' on top, yet her at home (in Aus if that matters), pasta is always outweighed by the 'sauce' which is mostly meat and vegetables.

YES! I sometimes eat cold pasta! And some reheated pasta too, but the cold pasta wierds out people so this makes me very happy

Can you find the truth behind Olive Gardens never ending pasta bowl? Is it truly never-ending, and does Olive Garden have plans for when a person eats all of their stock? I'm quite curious to find out!

Olive Garden: "Hey why's that guy bringing in all those togo boxes?" MatPat: *Secretly stuffs pasta into box* "MOAR PASTA!" Also, in the description, the Olive Garden tag under credits is misspelled.

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.

so me prefering lukewarm food, not being able to eat big portiont and putting my bread in the freezer(it'd get bad too fast) is actually a good and clever thing. hm

This doesnt change the amount of calories but only how long it will take to digest the food (by a tiny amount) sry pat, unsubed

Jim Greene
Jim Greene 3 days ago
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.

Man I love pasta but when I found out I was gluten free I was devastated that I could not enjoy my pasta but really gluten free pasta is much healthier so when I watched this I’m all like good job game theorists but I can’t try it out myself

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.

John Doe

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.

I love eating cold left-over pasta (sans sauce) ... but as I'm reheating my leftover sketti, I'm enjoying some fork-fulls of cold pasta from the tupperware... Great video - and it's not click-bait if it has cool facts, it's "Fact Bait", lol ... can I trademark that term? ;-)

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.

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.

I'm sorry but none of this makes a significant enough difference. The Laws of Thermodynamics applied here means there are the same amount of calories in the pasta regardless of what you do. This video is wrong.
