Volumetrics: Feel Full on Fewer Calories

Diet and nutrition expert Dr. Barbara Rolls and award-winning journalist Robert A. Barnett deliver a scientifically based plan that gives everyone what they've always wanted: a way to lose weight while still feeling satisfied. Emphasizing the difference between high-energy dense foods (including pretzels and other low-fat snack foods that are easy to overeat) and low-energy dense foods (like fruits and vegetables, soups and smoothies, which have a higher water content), Rolls and Barnett show readers how to increase food volume without adding calories. This is the core concept in a book that offers a systematic new approach to weight control based on the science of satiety, the study of hunger, and its satisfaction. Effective and easy, here, at last, is a real lifetime approach to eating healthy fully!

Do you overeat because you don't feel satisfied or full? Volumetrics is based on "the science of satiety"--what researchers have learned about the food choices that make people feel full. The authors teach you how to eat low-calorie-dense, high-volume foods so that you feel like you've eaten plenty, even though you've eaten fewer calories. You'll lose weight without feeling hungry or deprived.
Here's an example of how volume affects eating. Raisins are dried grapes. But 100 calories of raisins fill only one-quarter cup, while 100 calories of fresh, whole grapes fill one and two-thirds cups. You'll feel satisfied after one and two-thirds cups of grapes, but if you're eating raisins, you're likely to keep filling your mouth. The point is not to stop eating raisins (or chocolate, cheese, or other high-calorie, low-volume foods), but to realize that you're likely to take in many more calories before your body tells you you're full. If you're trying to manage your weight, eating more low-density foods (lower-calorie foods that have a lot of volume) will make you feel full while you drop pounds.
Barbara Rolls, a respected and well-published food-nutrition researcher at Pennsylvania State University, and food writer Robert Barnett explain energy density and how to use this concept to lose weight. They include the scientific evidence about how low-density (low-calorie, high-volume) foods make you feel satisfied, the best (and worst) foods for a satisfying, lower-calorie diet, a menu plan, an exercise plan, and environmental influences on eating. You also learn which foods are easiest to overeat. This is not a fad diet--it is logical and scientifically based, yet easy to understand and put into action. --Joan Price

Crowd at Transition Town Brixton Food Event

Roxie Boycott, London Food Adviser, Farmer and Campaigner on London and Claire Milne - Bristol Sustainable Food Coordinator at Transition Town Brixton Food event. April 30 2009.

Our current food system invests 10 calories of fossil energy to get 1 calorie of food energy out. We import more than 40% of our food. As oil and gas supplies dwindle this will present problems. In the city we are reliant on supermarket distribution chains, but supermarkets only hold enough food to feed us all for three days, leaving us "nine meals away from anarchy" should our imports be interrupted.
