5. Low in Calories and Carbs
One of the best things about squash is that they are very high in water. While calorie counting is crazy and not the best way to aim for weight loss, including tons of non-starchy veggies in your diet is an effective strategy.
Zucchini has a low calorie count and helps to fill you up — since you can eat a whole lot at once for little calories. Zucchini are also one of the lowest carb-containing veggies, second to leafy greens. This is one reason why people like to use them in place of noodles or other carbs.
