    In general, is Penne Pasta an alright food to eat for the broly crew? Or is it one of those food you should avoid at all cost?

    is that the portion you would be making? looks like a decent small meal with good amount of protein

    Its not bad... just make sure to some cardio after eating it... compared to other pastas it has less calories per 100g = 330-345, while other pasta is 370-380. go with the whole grain kind if possible

    You can eat wheat pasta if it makes you happy but regular and wheat are still pretty close. It's pretty much the same as eating bread, potato, or any other form of starch. Around 100 cals per ounce....good if you're bulking, but if you want to lose weight without eating like a bird, avoid it at all costs or eat Dreamfield's pasta instead.

    I wouldn't know how to live without pasta. It's good for you by itself, but typically, especially when served in restaurants, served with heavy butter or heavy whipping cream making it horrible for you

    There's actually a whole grain penne pasta you can get at Wal-Mart. I eat it errrrrrrrrrrday. 2oz's or 2/3 cup is 200 cals and like 40 grams of carbs.

    Love the AV.. MAMBA!
