Glucomannan: The New Weight Loss Secret?
Is glucomannan the secret to real weight loss? Let's take a look!
What is Glucomannan?
For anyone wanting to lose weight while still enjoying tasty food, glucomannan could be the answer. Glucomannan is a dietary fiber that is soluble and therefore absorbs a lot of water. This, in turn, reduces the body’s absorption of cholesterol and carbohydrates, which can help with weight loss.
By adding Zero Glucomannan Fiber to your food, you can help reduce blood sugar, improve your digestive health and lose weight. Glucomannan fiber is a simple and easy-to-prepare supplement that is consumed approximately 30 minutes before a meal. Simply add ¼ teaspoon to water or juice and drink it.
There is also a range of noodle products available that are made with glucomannan flour. These all offer maximum taste and satisfaction, but with minimal calories.
Noodles that contain glucomannan are made up predominantly of water, with approximately 3% fiber, so a serving will equate to the same calories as a cup of broth. This makes it the ideal food for anyone who wants to lose or manage their weight.
Replacing rice or pasta with Zero Noodles will reduce your calorie intake without compromising the taste of your food. The noodles are perfect for stirring into soups or adding to stir-frys. They also have the added advantage of being precooked, which makes them quick and easy to prepare. Just drain, rinse and serve.
Glucomannan offers many health benefits, especially for weight management. Any food that is high in fiber is good for managing weight because fiber keeps hunger at bay and makes you feel fuller for longer. The glucomannan flour that is used to produce the noodles comes from the root of the Konjac plant, which comes from eastern Asia. Glucomannan flour is also used as a thickening agent in many dishes and is available as a health supplement.
Glucomannan noodles are suitable for a variety of diets, including a ketogenic food program, which focuses on consuming a high-fat, medium-protein and low-carbohydrate diet. They can also be used for a paleo diet, which focuses on naturally-sourced foods, and vegan diets, which cut out any foods derived from animals. They're also suitable for anyone who suffers from wheat intolerance or an allergy to dairy, eggs, soy or gluten, making them the perfect food for the whole family to enjoy.
By just replacing one meal a day with glucomannan noodles, you can cut up to 2,000 calories a week from your diet, without making any other changes.
Glucomannan can also be good for anyone with diabetes as it can help the body to slow down the carbohydrate absorption rate, which can help reduce blood sugar.
It is well researched and reported that fiber can help with good colon health and alleviate constipation, which in turn helps avoid hemorrhoids and other associated conditions. Because the fiber in glucomannan noodles is soluble, it can help stimulate healthy bacteria in the same way a prebiotic can.
Glucomannan noodles are incredibly versatile and can be cooked in a number of different ways. They are available as traditional noodles, rice, lasagna sheets and fettuccine. They are simple and easy to prepare and just need to be added to water.
In order to boost the nutrition in your food, you can pair glucomannan noodles with almost any other food. They can be eaten hot or cold, added to soups, used in salads, substituted for rice in Asian dishes, or served with a sauce of your choice as a pasta replacement.
The Zero Noodles Rice tastes great and can even be used to prepare traditional rice dishes such as risotto.
Pasta is a well-loved food throughout the world. Not only is it tasty, but it's also quick to prepare and can be used in a variety of different ways. The Zero Noodle Fettuccine means you don’t have to give up your pasta dishes and can have them as often as you like without piling on the calories.
For anyone who enjoys preparing food, the Zero Lasagna Sheets make eating your favorite foods simple and enjoyable. The sheets can be cut to any shape and used in the exact same way as traditional lasagna sheets, but they take less time to cook. Layer between your favorite meat or vegetable sauce and bake in the oven until hot.
For the best results, combine glucomannan fiber and noodles with a healthy diet and exercise. Anyone suffering from a health condition should always seek advice from their doctor ahead of starting a new diet.
