Volumetrics Eating Plan

volumetrics eating planThe feeling of satisfaction out of eating just a few calories seems to be far-fetched for those who have been struggling through different restrictive diets that do not seem to work.  However, for a New York Times-bestselling author, it can be a reality.

The gist

Barbara Rolls, Ph.D. explains through her book "The Volumetrics Eating Plan" how you can eat lesser calories and still feel like you have eaten a plateful of food, resulting to a slimmer and healthier you. 

This lifestyle-based weight management program centers on an eating plan that is built on commonsense.  This means that Volumetrics does not restrict you from eating whatever you like, but it all depends on how much you eat them.  The book also includes healthy recipes that are easy-to-do as well as tasty.

It all boils down to choosing healthier food options, such as eating whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, as well as good fats.  Volumetrics also recommends jazzing up your favorite dishes and turn it into a nutrition-packed meal. 

For instance, macaroni and cheese is just as delicious if you choose whole wheat pasta, low-fat cheese, and no-fat milk.  Add some fresh vegetables onto the mac and cheese and it is nowa completely different meal.

Advantages and disadvantages

One great thing about Volumetrics is that it encourages dieters to look at diet on a positive light. 

For example, instead of the usual "do not eat this or that" we see on other diets, Volumetrics give you a freedom to choose on what foods to eat as long as you are able to control your consumption. 

However, not all people get satisfied on the same amount of food, and you may even end up eating more than the usual.
