These days, the hot thing seems to be “Low Carb” in the Fitness Community. There have been countless articles talking about the weight loss benefits of Low Carb over a Low Fat Diet.

From a health standpoint, the Zucchini noodles are better because a traditional serving of noodles ranks on the glycemic scale of 58/100 while Zucchini Noodles, on the other hand, have a ranking of 15/100. This is a case where the lower the score is better.
