Volumetrics: The Diet That Makes You Feel Full

The Volumetrics approach explicitly promotes “satiety,” the clinical term for that satisfied feeling. Since some foods are less energy-dense than others—they have fewer calories per ounce or gram—you can fill your plate, and your stomach. Volumetrics emphasizes fruits, veggies, soups, and other low-density foods. Other perks that fend off hunger: There’s no calorie cap, so you can eat as much as your body tells you it needs (but you have to listen to what it says), and the daily menu includes plentiful snacks and even dessert.
