Recently I noticed many new kinds of pasta like whole grain pasta, low carb and low Glycemic Index pasta and more

I was wondering how they fit with south beach.

Also what about egg noodles and rice noodles.. :p

Thank you

Whole grain pastas are part of Phase II of South Beach and are just delicious.
I'm not sure about the others. Anybody?

Rice noodles are listed in the P2 Foods to Enjoy list. I would think egg noodles (unless the are whole wheat, which i don't think I've ever seen) would be a food to avoid, as they are basically just flour and eggs.

But, I could be mistaken...

Thanks, Annarenee. I missed that about the rice noodles. I guess the others would be OK but whole wheat is better.

I agree with both of you...none on phase 1...
I love the rice noodles and love spinash ones too...
The Spinash ones are hard to find...If i was going to eat them even on Phase 2...very carefully! Very little!
