Volumetrics is the most sensible diet plan out there.

Not a bad read and a good plan

This isn't a terribly original way to eat but how it is scientifically explained is new. Usually this type of eating plan is labeled with a fancy name that describes more about the limitations of the food list rather than what is suitable for healthy eating. The science of this plan is the selling point.

Good, basic diet/nutrition book. I like the idea of considering the calorie density of foods, as well as the volume in determining your food choices and how full you will be after eating. Sensible plan for life. Barbara Rolls includes lots of scientific study on food and eating, which is always interesting.

Very good. Too remember to eat low calorie foods in volume is a very good idea. Enjoyed the book very much.
