Volumetrics

Can anyone shed more light on the concept of Volumetrics for me? I was just reading a little bit about it in one of my magazines. It sounds like a really reasonable and viable alternative to some other diet plans, but I want to be well informed before I buy a book or get too involved. Any help is appreciated !

In my view, Volumetrics is just a fancy word for the common-sense rules that Moms used to encourage when they said, "Eat your vegetables!" It can mean that when you want a snack, eat an apple or carrot sticks instead of a candy bar. At a buffet you might try a little bit of each of your favorite entrees, but then fill up the rest of the plate with salad greens instead of dinner rolls. In other words, eat all you want, but want stuff that is good for you!

I have a book about volumetrics. Some of the ideas are to eat broth types of soups that fill your stomache so you don't eat as much. Drink juices and plenty of water. Eat a lot of vegetables because they are filled with water. The whole idea is to eat foods that fill you up and not add a lot of calories. It is a good idea and I would suggest finding the paperback book on it to get more in depth information. You may find that it is very helpful and you like it.
