Feel Full With Volumetrics

If you are struggling with keeping your eating under control, you might want to consider exploring a diet program called Volumetrics. Unlike fad diets, Volumetrics doesn’t involve following a crazy diet plan that no one could ever stick to for a long period of time. In addition, it doesn’t require you to follow an unhealthy program that could lead to illness or injury. Rather, it is a simple concept developed by nutritionist Barbara Rolls, PhD that involves adding foods to you diet that help you feel full.

Many people overeat simply because they never feel satisfied after eating. With the help of Volumetrics, you can achieve that “full” feeling so you can feel satisfied. The key to being successful with this diet is finding foods that are filling, but that are not full of calories.

Some low-density foods that you can eat a lot of without consuming a large amount of calories include:

·    No-starchy vegetables
·    Soup broths
·    Non-fat milk

Some high-density foods that contain a large amount of calories within a small serving include:

·    Butter
·    Candy
·    Chips
·    Chocolate
·    Cookies
·    Crackers
·    Nuts
·    Oils

In order to get that full feeling while keeping your caloric intake down, you should focus on eating a lot of low-density foods. Focusing on foods that contain a high percentage of water, such as fruits and vegetables, is also a part of this diet.

Volumetrics also recommends replacing certain foods with low-fat varieties. For example, replacing eggs, oil, cream and butter with yogurt, egg whites, applesauce and skim milk will significantly cut your caloric intake as well as the amount of fat you consume.

Of course, hunger isn’t the only reason many people overeat. For example, some people overeat because it brings them comfort, while others eat simply because the food tastes so good. In fact, many people continue to eat even after they are no longer hungry. So, while Volumetrics might help some people, it might not be the right diet plan for you.
