Are there Really No-Carb Noodles?


It's not a myth! There really are delicious and filling ZERO net-carb noodles out there! Meet It's Skinny—the no-carb noodle about to change your life!

If you're cutting carbs, you probably think pasta is a thing of the past. But, with It's Skinny, you can create and enjoy all your favorite pasta dishes guilt (and carb)-free!

Zero Carb Pasta: A Matter of Taste

If you're cutting carbs, there are a few meal options. You could try zucchini noodles. You could explore one of the alternative pasta brands on the market. You could skip pasta altogether and just eat the sauce and protein.

If you've tried zoodles (or other versions of noodles made from vegetables), you've likely been a little disappointed. It's not that zoodles are bad, per se. If you like zucchini, they're palatable. But they definitely don’t have the texture of pasta. Instead, they get watered-down, gloppy, and soggy. If you don't cook zoodles, they have a vegetal taste that can overwhelm your dish.

What about pasta alternatives? Like those pastas made from beans? Many brands of pasta alternatives on the market are lower-carb, but they still contain some carbohydrates. For keto and low-carb dieters, it’s often not worth the splurge. The texture is always off, the flavor is odd and off-putting, and frankly, they just aren’t that good.

Do you skip pasta completely? One surefire way to derail your diet is to implement too much deprivation. When you're eating a plate of sauce, you'll probably feel a sense of FOMO and, well, disappointment. What's life without pasta?

Don’t even get us started on rice, too! Have you had cauliflower rice? It took the internet by storm a few years ago because it seems so healthy. But people quickly learned that grating a head of cauliflower is a messy business. Add heat, and the cauliflower quickly becomes soft and soggy. What's worse is that cauliflower has a strong flavor which doesn't play well with many other ingredients.

ZERO net-carb It’s Skinny is the perfect no-carb noodle (and rice). They won’t overpower the other flavors in your dish. They have a great pasta-like texture. It’s Skinny noodles are simple to use, even for novice cooks, and they’re perfect for almost any diet. There’s a reason why shirataki noodles are sometimes called “miracle” past--it’s that good.

All About It’s Skinny No-Carb Pasta

If you haven’t tried It’s Skinny before, prepare to be wowed. These noodles are delicious, easy to make, and guilt-free!

It’s Skinny is made from a special ingredient called konjac. Konjac is a plant that grows in Asia, where it’s been used as food and medicine for years. To make It’s Skinny Pasta, we use the plant's root.

Konjac root is a bit like a cross between a turnip and a sweet potato. It’s high in glucomannan fiber, which keeps you full and going strong. In some studies, glucomannan has even helped keep blood sugar levels steady, making it ideal for people watching their weight and fighting hunger.

Diet expert Jorge Cruise recommends It’s Skinny as a no-carb pasta for Intermittent fasters. In fact, It's Skinny is so low in calories with ZERO net carbs that it won't break your fast! Yes, that's right! You can enjoy a delicious bowl of It's Skinny Pasta or Rice while still fasting on the plan!

What’s more, It’s Skinny is perfect for all sorts of diets. It’s kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and ideal for those following Keto, Paleo, and many other diets.

So how do you cook with It’s Skinny Pasta? It's as simple as opening the package, draining the noodles, and adding them to the pan at the end of your cooking. The noodles just need to heat through, and they're ready to enjoy!
