The Noodle Diet
Do you know that eating noodle is better than eating plain rice in your diet? The rice consists of more calories than noodle. Of course it is lower in calories if you choose fresh noodle. Do you like eating chinese noodle?
The Chinese don't have a word for "calories". They view food as nourishment, not potential weight gain. A 1990 survey found that Chinese people consumed 30 per cent more calories than Americans, but were not necessarily more active. Clissold says their secret is avoiding the empty calories of sugary, nutrient-free foods.
One cup of cooked noodles contains about 210 calories. It is better if you choose home made noodle rather than instant noodle.
