Advantages of using low carb pasta over conventional pasta
At Body Balancing Nutrition, we are the specialists in weight loss and wellness. We address weight loss clinically with a hormonal approach.
We recommend an adequate protein intake accompanied by moderate carbohydrates and good plant fats. The carbohydrates we prescribe are low glycemic and low carb load. This means the amount of carbohydrate in the food is low and hence has a slower flow of glucose into the blood stream as opposed to the spiking that high carb foods do like rice, pasta and potatoes.
Slim Pasta is an ideal inclusion in our program as the fibre content is very high thus improving the glycemic index and carb load. For this reason it is very helpful for regulating blood sugars in Diabetics.
The Japanese have used Konjac noodles for centuries. It is the glucomannan in this plant that expands the stomach to make you feel full. This is created through its water binding abilities. In event you will reduce your overall calorie intake in a meal and reduce hunger and cravings. Konjac noodles have also been shown in several studies to improve digestion, specifically constipation.
Slim pasta is also hypo-allergenic. Eating foods that contain allergens in them (foods you are intolerant to) will suppress your immunity and put pressure on your adrenal glands. Not to mention imbalance your gut and cause a myriad of symptoms including bloating, abdominal cramping, catarrah, mood changes, gut flora imbalances and much more. There are no allergy causing ingredients in Slim pasta and thus recommending it as part of a allergy free diet is advised.
We find that a diet free of wheat and dairy aids weight loss and so the inclusion of Slim pasta is a perfect addition to a well balanced diet.
