Shirataki Pasta

"Eat more and weigh less" is the phrase used on a recent Dr. Oz episode, and he was referring to shirataki pasta.  According to pretty impressive research, the consumption of these healthy noodles, when timed appropriately, will result in impressive weight loss and body composition changes. Glucommanan fiber, the primary ingredient in these delicious noodles, is a soluble fiber that has been proven to delay the digestive process of high calorie and less healthy foods.  Additionally, you will experience a sense of fullness and satisfaction.

What are the other advantages of eating these so called "miracle noodles"?

     -Four cups of Shirataki pasta is equal to one cup of regular pasta, so that amounts to a mere 10 calories per serving, hence the "eat less, weigh more" mantra.

     -Losing weight with miracle pasta provides a significant amount of soluble fiber that does not result in any digestive discomfort.

    -If you are a diabetic or prediabetic, the delayed absorption will help normalize blood glucose by delaying absorption.

    -They are heart healthy

    -The delayed absorption will actually foster the body's ability to reach a fat burning zone.

We currently carry the most delicious shirataki (glucomannan) noodles on the planet and they have been made available to our practice through Quest Nutrition at special rate for our customers and patients.  You can order it through our website or pick it up in our office.
