NOoodle is made of 97% water & 3% soluble fiber also known as Glucomannan fiber. Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber. Derived from the roots of the Asian Konjac plant, Glucomannan boasts many health and wellness benefits.

Top 10 Benefits of Eating NOoodle

  1. Zero calories— the glucomannan in NOoodle contributes no calories and when consumed as part of a meal reduces the net caloric content of the meal.  The calories come from what else one puts on the noodles.
  2. Lowers calorie uptake— the glucomannan in NOoodle increases the viscosity of the gastro-intestinal content and reduces rate of food (calories, fat, cholesterol, sugar) absorption in the small intestine.  The net effect of consuming a meal with NOoodle is that one absorbs less calories from the other foods eaten with it.
  3. Promotes satiety— the glucomannan in NOoodle is made up largely of water which fills one up quickly giving the feeling of satisfaction.  One tends to eat less when NOoodle is part of the meal.
  4. Delays hunger— the glucomannan in NOoodle increases the viscosity of gastro-intestinal content and extends the feeling of fullness so one doesn’t feel hungry for an extended period of time.
  5. Modulates glucose spikes— the glucomannan in NOoodle reduces the rate of glucose absorption in the small intestine and prevents blood glucose from spiking (clinically proven to be more effective than xanthan gum and psyllium).  Stirring in NOoodles into ice cream and parfaits helps one enjoy treats with less absorption of sugar.
  6. Modulates insulin surges— the glucomannan in NOoodle, by slowing glucose uptake in the small intestine, reduces the body’s need for insulin.
  7. Cholesterol reducing agent— the glucomannan in NOoodle, by virtue of its viscosity, traps the cholesterol from foods and also the cholesterol released by the body and prevents it from being re-absorbed.  A meal containing NOoodle in addition to flushing out cholesterol from the GI tract will also contribute to reducing cholesterol in the blood cholesterol.  Cholesterol reduction is further enhanced when glucomannan is combined with other cholesterol reducing agents such as plant sterols and chitosan.
  8. Regularity / laxative effect— glucomannan is a dietary fiber and prevents constipation by increasing bulk in the colon without the discomfort associated with most other dietary fibers.
  9. Anti-inflammatory activity— although the mechanism is still being investigated, the positive effect of glucomannan on skin inflammation is well known among its users.  For centuries NOoodle like products have been part of Eastern traditional medicine.
  10. Prebiotic activity— serves as food for bacteria in the colon and helps enhance immunity.  Foods that promote the growth of healthy bacteria have innumerable health benefits for people of all ages and genders.

The countdown to the end of the NoOodle diet Contest. 15 more days to go, who will be our winner?



This is day one. My picture at day 90 will look better. I have seen measurable results so far and we still have 15 more days to go~ 


It has been a whirl-wind few weeks for NoOodle. We had a great successful show at the All natural Expo West. We received a commitment from a supermarket chain, Fred Meyers, who are in the pacific northwest. On April 13th we will have our four new products in all 178 Jewel/Osco Stores in the Chicago land area. Look for them in the soup section, Woo Hoo!!! . 

How have you guys been doing on the NoOodle Diet? Are you going to win the year supply of NoOodles? I have been true to my word and have stuck to the diet and the rules to live by( most of the time). I have incorporated a cocktail here and there. I have been sticking with tito's vodka ( gluten free) with soda and a splash of grapefruit juice. I have been eating about 5 NoOodle meals per week & sticking to a gluten-free/low glycemic diet. I need to be consistent on drinking the 64 ounces of water per day. I think I have slacked on that rule to live by and I will try to do better going forward.


For me dieting is a lot like being an entreprenuer. Their are so many temptations for us to make a detour on a diet and in our work. It is almost impossible to stay on the road, especially when the road can be so hard.

During my career as a chef/Restauranteur, I met a CEO of the largest retirement community company in the world. He was a restaurant customer at Lincolnshire Gourmet. I remember that I loved when he came in and sat at the bar. I would have his listening for maybe 30-45 minutes, tops. I took advantage of every minute by sharing what was happening in my business with him so he would give me his input/feedback.  I would get to listen to his thoughts on business and his great insights on his success and how to attain great success in business as he had.

I saw him the other day for the first time in years. He asked how NoOodle was doing. I caught him up to speed passionately on the exciting things going on with NoOodle. He then said something to me that I will never forget. He said," Terri, this is exactly how success happens. Keep doing what your doing. One day you will wake up and you will have everything you ever dreamed of. Success happens when we work hard and never give up year after year after year."
