    Shirataki noodles


    Anyone hear of them?

    I recently came across them myself and havent tried it myself yet but they look promising for all the low carb people. Says it has zero calories and zero carbs.

    They're ok. Don't expect 'em to be like real pasta - they have a much chewier texture. But they definitely work if you're craving spaghetti.

    Are they really zero carb? I never heard of this Glucomannan

    Essentially yes. It's all fiber. You'll still receive a negligible amount of calories, but nothing that should have a systemic impact.

    Major drawback is the price

    I tried them and was rather disappointed. Plus, they're expensive.

    I'd suggest a small portion of quinoa, but if you're trying to avoid carbs completely, just go paleo
