For reasons I won’t go into (because I’m not old enough to bitch about my health problems, yet), I have recently gone on an ultra low-fat, low fiber diet. So, I get 3 tsp. (o.O) of oil and 6 ounces of lean meat a day. Other than that, it’s all about carbo loading.
The unfortunate thing is that a typical serving of pasta has 210 calories. Considering that I need about 2000 calories per day, and that I typically eat a double serving of pasta, that’s 5 large bowlfuls of pasta per day.
