Kojac

Options
Can I ask the members opinion on this please? Also known as Glucomannan. I have bought some capsules but haven't opened the container yet.

    Who loves ya, baby?

    I only know about the noodles. I don't know anything about capsules, I suppose they're a fiber supplement?

    Some of us are obviously very old.

    It's supposed to swell in your stomach and make you fell fuller.

    So you never need to learn portion control? Or how to deal with “mock” hunger?

    That sounds like it would cause distress coming out.

    The konjac noodles are okay if you find a brand you like a rinse them and dry fry them. They are filling and good used in stir fries.

    LOL. Thanks. I need to change to a face picture. Weight loss has not been as kind there. I used to look younger than my age, now I look it.

    There are times when I need help and wondered if it had helped anyone else.

    *raises hand* That's what came to mind as soon as I saw the thread title, too...

    Are those noodles the ones that are slimy and gross and smell of fish until rinsed and dried? The descriptions I've seen of them have put me off trying them, but some people do say they're very filling and very low calorie and are good with something flavourful.

    Sounds fine but I’m sure someone will say that “natural” fibre might be better. Bran, fibrous fruit and veg etc. That way you get cals and macros along with your fibre.

    The trick is finding a brand that's not too fishy smelling, imo. I like the Better Than Noodles brand that has gluten free oat fiber in them. I don't find them to be overly smelly at all compared to the other brands I've tried. They are indeed very filling and perfectly fine once rinsed and dry fried.

    They are super low calorie and a good vehicle for vegetables, protein, and sauces. I think they work best in Asian style dishes.

    They are capsules. Two with plenty of water three times per day before meals.

    Well, it's a harmless fiber.

    I don't know if it will expand in your stomach.

    Konjac is from a root and is perfectly safe, so it won't hurt. I just don't know if it will work.

    I'd rather eat the noodles!

    Do you plan on taking the pills for the rest of your life? What happens after you hit your goal and can no longer control your hunger in that manner?

    Perhaps now is the time to learn how to do it properly?
