2. A low-calorie food

Although substituting zucchini for spaghetti noodles or other pasta helps those who follow a low-carb diet, it can aid anyone's weight loss goals. Zucchini is very low in calories at a mere 20 calories per one cup serving. This makes zucchini one of the lowest calorie vegetables out there - even less than broccoli or brussels sprouts. Losing weight means reducing the number of calories - energy - that you consume. Eating zucchini instead of high-calorie pasta or as a filling side dish can help dieters easily achieve their calorie goals. The versatility of zucchini makes it a go-to substitute for wraps or sandwich roll-ups as well.
