    But if eating pasta made with white flour is what makes you wake up at
    night, then wouldn't try to do something about it?

    Paul's suggestion that one consume less of it seems on the mark.

    I ususally weigh out 2 ounces (dry) of pasta per person, but if
    we want to consume less carbs, it's 1.6 ounces, and we supplement
    the pasta by slicing up a couple zucchini and tossing them
    in the spghetti pot one to two minutes before the pasta will have
    finished cooking.

    Pasta is usually a side dish, but it is the problem.

    I seriously doubt the quantity of pasta wakes one up... much more
    likely it's what's eaten with the pasta... cut back on the greasy
    saw-seege, hot peppers, and booze.

    Living like a lab rat isn't living... you're feeding 10 people with a
    pound of pasta... a pound of pasta is a starvation diet for ten rats.
    Stretching pasta is the epitomy of cheap bastard disease.

    Why would it make you wake up at night?

    I like to put the pasta in a casserole with lot of meat and/or vegetables or
    in a soup. That way it doesn't take a lot.

    Sugar-crash-induced hunger episodes would be one possibility -- the
    body's reaction to too high a glycemic load.

    I don't. My husband does. Why is his problem, but he's narrowed it
    down to carbs. It's probably is blood sugar crashing.

    Ah. When we're entertaining, pasta is usually a primi -- we would
    serve something else as the main course.

    When we're dining by ourselves, it is the main course, but we limit
    the pasta component to the above range of portion sizes, making it
    about the same amount as a side dish.

    I'm with you there, Barbara. My parents are in their 80's now and their
    doctor has them eating the most unappealing diet that I've ever heard.
    Sometimes they cheat and I cheer them on. To me, once you eliminate some of
    life's little luxuries, you might live longer buy at what cost?
    (gentle snippage)



    My mother was on a very strict diet for years due to cholesterol blockages
    in her legs. She was eating boiled chicken breast halves and plain rice.
    No salt or real butter. Lots of butter substitutes (benecol, IIRC) and herb
    blends. One of the prescription blood thinners prevented her from eating
    vegetables she loved such as broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and
    spinach. She finally said NO to the medications and no to the diet
    restrictions. She told me she was going to eat whatever she wanted! She
    was particularly fond of crab cakes

    That vitamin K restriction is a real bummer. You have a small budget
    for vitamin K but it doesn't take much to use it up. For the year that
    I was on Coumadin that restriction took away just about everything
    that I loved. I adore green onions, no green onions,, no pickles,
    cabbage, spinach, broccoli -- the list goes on. Of course, people can
    be really stupid. Why eat 5 avocados if you know they are on the
    no-no list? Every week when I went for my blood test the nurse would
    tell me another tale of someone overindulging.

    My wife has been on it for ten years and will remain so for the rest
    of her life. The testing clinic recommends moderation, but also
    consistency and they adjust the dose.

    FYI, for most people they can now test at home, similar to the glucose
    meters for diabetics. Of course, my wife's blood condition does not
    work with the meters.
