This Is Your Body on Ramen

It’s a question that’s confounded decades of college students—what would happen if you subsisted primarily on instant ramen noodles?
Finally, someone dug deep into the science to find out. Spoiler alert—ramen’s empty calories do more damage than good. Aside from being a sodium bomb, ramen’s carbo-load offers scant nutrition. In the short term, a ramen-heavy diet can leave you feeling bloated, headachey and spaced out from dehydration. Long term, there’s the potential for weight gain, high blood pressure and heart disease.
Sort of on the plus side: Ramen is delightfully low in sugar and cost-friendly at less than 50 cents a packet.
