Never go hungry again, and still lose weight.
The concept of having more for less is something everyone understands. How often have you eaten something small and walked away feeling satisfied? That's exactly what you'll learn to do from The Volumetrics Eating Plan. This New York Times Bestseller by Barbara Rolls, Ph.D. describes a way in which you can eat less calories and still feel full. Those fewer calories will result in fewer inches on your waistline.
Don't confuse Volumetrics with a diet - it's a lifestyle change cleverly disguised as a commonsense eating plan. Dr. Rolls is a widely respected expert in weight loss and her book and plan come with high praise. Volumetrics will not remove entire categories of food or overwhelm with rules, counting and guidelines. Volumetrics comes with a wealth of tools including meal planners, sidebars outlining health food selections and more than 120 delightful recipes- that are as easy and smart as they are tasty and nutritious. Best of all, they are all low calorie and will leave you filling full and satisfied.
Dr. Rolls has printed one other title - Volumetrics Weight-Control Plan, in which she originally discussed her vast research and findings on satiety, the ability to eat to a satisfying point without overeating. Volumetrics is flexible and allows you to use the plan to best fit your likes, dislikes and personal goals. Unlike a lot of diet plans, this gives you broad choices, flexibility, simplicity and the comfort of knowing it's all backed by sound and highly-respected research. Prepare to have your mind changed about eating and dieting.
So how does it work? Volumetrics will greatly decrease your current caloric intake and as a result you can expect to lose about 1-2 pounds each week. You'll enjoy fresh produce, lean protein with almost all meals, whole grains, good fats and low-fat dairy.
Volumetrics doesn't really use the word "No;" Instead it gives you choice and variety. For instance, really enjoy a tasty bowl of mac 'n cheese? Volumetrics makes it just as satisfying with far less calories by using whole-wheat pasta, no-fat milk and low-fat cheese, as well as using less butter. Also, add fresh vegetables and you've got Volumetric's uber-satisfying Veggie-Stuffed Macaroni and Cheese. Fried chicken and cheese-soaked broccoli a sunday favorite? Instead, try chicken parmesan with asparagus, salad and even a dessert. This practice of substitution is applied to so many of your favorite snacks and meals that you won't believe you ever had them any other way.

Volumetrics gets the stamp of approval from most experts. And even those who have some reservations don't attack the strategy on any deep level. While some people have concerns with the emphasis on making meals on your own, let's face it - pre-packaged foods are often high in sodium. All in all, this is an interesting and sound approach to eating.Common Misspellings
