Not good for Healthy for life (Low GI). As said before, if the noodles were changed to whole wheat and cheese to low fat then it
maybe good for phase 2.

Butter is forbidden on low GI, and flour and noodles are both high-GI. So if you have to have this, then only the smallest size portion.

I replace the mac with cauliflower, no milk, use heavy cream and use real kerrygold butter, not the light stuff, no flour, and make a bake. Works great for me. Give it a try.
