Portion control is your best friend. Yes, that’s right! Keep those pasta plates small, you would be surprised at the number of calories you can save if you simply cut down the quantity you consume.

Don’t overdo it with the cheese. We are all guilty of this. Pasta and cheese are bestfriends and we tend to overdo it with cheese when it comes to pasta, unknowingly consuming twice the number of calories.
