What's the Deal with: Volumetrics

What's the Deal with: Volumetrics

If given the choice between eating more and eating less, which would you choose?

If you chose eating more then you're not alone and you may want to consider The Volumetrics Eating Plan. The basis behind Volumetrics is feeling full and satisfied. The book's author, Barbara Rolls, PhD, believes that people feel full because of the amount of food they eat -- not because of the number of calories or the grams of fat, protein, or carbs. The trick to the Volumetrics Diet is to fill up on foods that aren't full of calories. In some cases (especially of those of us who have been crash dieting for years now), following Volumetrics will actually allow you to slim down while eating more, not less than you do now.

The one major rule of Volumetrics is that you need to keep a watch out for Energy Density, which is the number of calories in a specified amount, in foods. The less energy dense a food is (like veggies and non-fat milk) the more you can have of it. The more energy dense a food is, like cookies, the less you can have of it. As you can imagine, water (perhaps the least energy dense food there is) plays a big role in Volumetrics.

Lower-calories, lower-fat, and lots of vegetables and fruits...hmm just sounds to me like another way (one that sells books) to describe a healthy diet, so if it sounds like a good deal to you, then you should absolutely try this diet.

Buy The Volumetrics Eating Plan on Amazon.com for $17.13.
