Don't get me wrong. I love ramen. But my all-time favorite has to be udon. There's something about it - it always tastes good for some reason. Soba is really good too.

And orzo is a long time favorite. "It's rice! No, it's pasta! No, it's...."

Ramen noodle are good, but throw away the season packet, that little packet is loaded with fat and salt.

I have been enjoying pasta made by RAOS' restuarant from new york

There's no reason to bother with ramen without the various packets. The nutrional value of the noodles alone is worse than the added fat and sodium in the packets combined with the noodles, especially if you're eating a package with dried fish and vegetables.

By the way, how much fat does Ricotta, Romano, Mozarella, or Provolone have? Each usually has quite a lot considering that they're usually made with whole milk.

I would say that Linguini with clam sauce is safe but it's only safer.

Raos noodles have 0% salt and 2% fat.

My theory on this is that it is more unhealthy to stress over the foods you eat then to just eat them.

Not that I am saying y'all are stressing over them, but I think what you eat is just a (small) portion of your overall health and well being.

quite aware. My mom is a health specialist.... kinda.... I like to think of her as a modern day environmentalist hippy. She makes sure to remind me of this whenever I eat unhealthy food. :rolleyes:

Once again, eating right is not the most important thing to health and weight control. Although it CAN be important.

Congratulations jefhatfield, I'm glad to hear that you turned your life around. Are you considered to be a normal weight now?

Favorite noodle depends on what is being prepared. I found a great recipe for crispy noodle cake with chicken stir fry using fresh Chinese egg noodles (the ones that look like short spaghetti). Yum! Or another favorite is orzo. I did a pilaf with that recently that was great, since you can't tell if it is rice or pasta until you bite down on it and get that firm al dente feel that rice could never have. So many noodles, so little time. I have about 12 different kinds of dried pasta around the house right now, which reminds me I should have some for dinner tonight!

mactastic, be sure to let us know what kind of pasta that you are serving tonight? That make me hungry, maybe I can get my wife to serve some also!

instead of being 200+ at five foot seven, it's optimal to be in the 150 to 160 range, so i have ten pounds to go...but those are always the hardest, of course :p

Why not shoot for an additional 20lbs? That way, if you fail you'll still be happy at losing 10lbs? heh. :D

I have faith in you, that you'll be successful! Psychologically GeneR's suggestion might help. Slow steady progress is always the best! ;)

I have been thinking about sharing a short film I shot about Ramen on this board however I am a bit concerned because, although done for fun, I do not have the permission for the song.

If anyone knows about the legal ramifications of such things (it's an old Benny Goodman song from the early 1910's and 1920's) I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, unfortunately, I won't be sharing it.

:D
