Volumetrics Diet: Lose Weight without Starving


We can eat as much as we like on the Volumetrics diet and still lose weight. We explain how the idea works and what you should look out for.

Are you tired of calorie counting as well? Then the Volumetrics diet might be precisely what you need to shed a few pounds! Unlike other diets, Volumetrics (Latin for "volumetrics") allows you to eat whatever you want and still lose weight. Barbara Rolls, a professor of nutritional science at Pennsylvania State University, came up with the idea

What is the Volumetrics diet, and how does it work?

Instead of focusing on kcal or calorie reduction, fat or carbohydrate reduction, this type of diet focuses solely on the energy density of a dish. This tells you how much energy food has in comparison to its weight. This indicates that everything on the Volumetrics menu is high in volume, fills the stomach effectively, and has a low-calorie density. The saturation feeling occurs quickly with this diet, and Expertin estimates that one to two pounds can be lost per week with this nutrition.

What foods am I allowed to eat on the Volumetrics diet?

However, those who want to reduce weight with Volumetrics should eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.

  • You can really fill up on these foods with low energy density and high volume and forget about your hunger pangs: 
  • Pasta and bread are made from whole grains.
  • Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and kohlrabi are examples of vegetables with high water content.
  • Bananas, apples, cherries, and strawberries are examples of fruits.
  • Chicken and lean ham are examples of lean meats.
  • dairy items that are low in fat

What should I do if I don't want to lose weight?

First and foremost, even if you are on a diet, you should not fully deprive yourself of anything in order to maintain your weight loss. While you can consume as much of the above-mentioned foods as you wish, you should limit your intake of the following items:

  • Products with a high-fat content (cheese and milk)
  • Eggs
  • Snacks, both sweet and salty
  • Alcohol
  • Foods that are baked or fried

On the Volumetrics diet, how can I replace these foods?

Barbara Rolls also recognizes that when it comes to cooking and baking, it can be difficult to eschew high-calorie goods in favor of low-calorie, high-water-content alternatives. Her advice is as follows: Use milk and egg whites instead of butter, cream, and eggs.
