Weight Management: How NuPasta Can Help Achieve Healthy Weight Loss

April 27, 2015 at 2:21 pm, Posted by NuPasta

Dropping a few pounds and keeping it off takes discipline. While most people want to do it as quickly as possible, this is not the healthiest choice. Losing too much weight too quickly makes you more prone to gaining it back.

Effective weight management is about making adjustments to your eating habits, increasing your level of activity and making changes to your lifestyle.

“It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off,” says the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

“To lose weight, you must use up more calories than you take in. Since one pound equals 3,500 calories, you need to reduce your caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week,they add.

 Healthy Weight Loss By the Numbers

Losing weight is a numbers game. At its core, it comes down to calories consumed and calories burned. To lose weight, you need to consume fewer calories than you burn.

Let’s take a look at weight loss by the numbers:

  • A healthy and realistic rate for weight loss is one pound per week
  • One pound is equal to 3500 calories
  • You need to have an average daily calorie deficit of 500 calories to lose one pound per week and remain healthy
  • The average adult eats between 1500-2500 calories per day
  • A typical meal is about 500-700 calories

Remember that your 500 calorie deficit does not have to come from food alone. You can also increase your level of physical activity to achieve your objectives.

How Can Nupasta Help?

A typical pasta meal is about 500 calories -300 calories from pasta, 200 calories from sauce. One  full plate of NuPasta has 25 calories, whereas the same amount of regular pasta contains about 300 calories.

Do the simple math—by switching to NuPasta, you will be cutting about 275 calories per meal. Couple this with an exercise plan where you burn an extra 250 calories per day, and you will have achieved your required 500 calorie deficit to stay on track with your one pound per week weight loss goal.

If you typically eat pasta 3 times per week, simply substituting NuPasta would reduce your weekly calorie consumption by 800-900 calories per week. You can also use NuPasta to replace other high calorie meals to lower your overall calorie intake.

Making these subtle changes throughout the week will help you more easily reach your weight loss goals, without having to significantly alter your diet or give up pasta. This is a win-win situation for everyone. You can still enjoy your favorite pasta dish, while losing weight at the same time.

    The low-carb eating strategy is based on the theory that people who eat carbohydrates take in more calories and gain weight, while people on a high-fat diet eat less and lose weight. However, low-carbohydrate diets tend to cause dehydration by shedding pounds as urine. The result is rapid weight loss, but after a few months, weight loss tends to slow and reverse, just as happens with other diets.

      While there are various diets with different theories on weight loss, each have their merits and demerits. NuPasta is very versatile and can fit into many diets as it satisfies hunger with very little calories and non-fibre carbohydrates.

      There is some truth regarding the low-carb approach to eating resulting shedding water weight. While it might not be as extreme as dehydration, the basic idea is this: when there is less than 100g of carbohydrates in our diet, our bodies will start burning the glycogens to ensure there is sufficient glucose to maintain our regular bodily functions. Glycogens hold 3 to 4 times its weight in water, so as our bodies deplete the glycogen, the attached water molecules is flushed out as well. Once the glycogen stores are depleted, our bodies will start burning lipids and protein for energy, and this is the key mechanics for a low carb diet. Once we replenish our glycogen, the associated water weight will return but weight loss from the fats would be kept off.
