Hi ran across an ad for calorie free noodles and I said to myself “yea right” we’ll see. So I hit their website and it’s true. Not only calorie free, soy free, and gluten free too! Taken from their website is the following:

The Miracle Noodle Low Down

* made of naturally water soluble fiber with no fat, sugar, or starch.
* contain zero net carbohydrates and zero calories, no gluten -made of a healthy natural fiber called Glucomannan.
* wheat & gluten free and kosher.
* Easily absorbs the flavors of any soup, dish, or sauce.
* are instant and come in a variety of styles
* have shown beneficial effects backed by medical studies for Type II Diabetes, Constipation, Obesity, and Cholesterol!
I had to try them. Well let me say they are a little daunting because of the preparation. It’s not difficult to do but there is this little matter of the smell. If you don’t rinse as they say, you will regret it, in a big way. I’ve done the research that’s been the biggest complaint. But if you drain them, rinse them a good 2-3 minutes, dry, microwave for about 1 min. and then dry again, I just use a couple paper towels, then combine with whatever you want. FANTASTIC. They are filling without the carb. I’ve combined them with, spaghetti sauce, leftover vegetarian fajita veggies, and frozen broccoli with carrots and garlic sauce. All were good and healthy. I love pasta and this will help fight the evil carbs. Don’t take my word for it, go try them, I liked them so much I joined up to be an affiliate.

Miracle Noodles – But are they?

Feel Guilty About Your Appetite?

I know I have days where I can’t seem to eat enough and the guilt I feel about it. I don’t do this a lot but I have a way I can balance it out. Many are going to groan at what I’m going to say but it has to be said. Exercise and calories burns.

I am not a fan of counting calories. I know when I’m eating something bad and when I’m doing well, I refuse to spend my days counting every single item that goes in my mouth but in order to weight on/weight off (can you tell I just watched Karate Kid?) is to use exercise as the bank you can withdraw from. When I eat something bad, I need to deposit something into the bank (exercise) or I will start my day with exercise and know kind of how much is in the bank. If I behave all day I’ve earned interest in the account, that means weight off. That’s how you lose weight, you save more in the exercise bank than you spend in the calorie count.

Start budgeting today and you could be in for a windfall in the way of smaller jeans, feeling better, whatever you are looking for.
