9. I think pasta (also bread and potatoes) is only fattening when
people add lots of butter, cheese sauce, sour cream, etc.
I have eaten plenty of pasta but usually with a tomato-based sauce and maybe a spoonful of cheese. You also don't have to add a lot of fattening extras to bread or potatoes, as long as they're fresh. A small amt. of butter or cheese will do.
I am 5'5, 113 lb. woman and I've been this same weight since late 20's (now 60 y.o.). Lots of fruits and veggies are a must but I also eat yogurt, cheese, and cream, although in moderation.
