Can I Use Shirataki Noodles on the Dukan Diet?
Dr Dukan is continually making minor adjustments and modifications to the Dukan Diet so this means that you are not always able to find the answers to all your questions in his Dukan Diet books.
One of the questions you can’t answer using the Dukan Diet book is whether you can eat Shirataki noodles but
Shirataki noodles are allowed in all phases in unlimited quantities!
This is good news as the addition of Shirataki noodles to the Dukan Diet greatly widens the variety of different meals that you can enjoy in all phases of the Dukan Diet and they are particularly useful in helping to provide variety in the Attack Phase and on Pure Protein days in the other phases when vegetables are off the menu.
You are allowed to eat unlimited amounts of these noodles and they are a excellent and versatile carb free food which has very few calories and you can get these noodles in several different shapes and sizes.
Shirataki noodles are made from flour which comes from the roots of the yam-like Konjac plant that is grown in Japan and China. Apart from being low in carbs and calories these noodles provide useful additional dietary fiber which helps to slow down your digestion, keeping you feeling full for longer. The fiber is non soluble just like the fiber in oat bran which can help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels and slow down the release of insulin into the blood stream for those suffering with Type II Diabetes.
