I began following Volumetrics in April, 2001. Four years later, I have lost 220 pounds! The Volumetrics Weight-Control Plan gave me everything I needed to overcome obesity: a comprehensive guide to good nutrition; a clear explanation of the science of satiety; and a host of delicious recipes to try. I have been able to stick with Volumetrics all this time because I don’t feel hungry or deprived. In fact, I would say that by managing my hunger and helping me achieve a normal weight, Volumetrics has given me my life back. This new Volumetrics book is a wonderful complement to the first one. It includes more detail on how to implement Volumetrics successfully, along with menu planners and beautiful color photographs of 125 new recipes. I’ve actually given The Volumetrics Eating Plan to several friends who don’t need to lose weight but do like to cook. I only wish it had been available when I started my own Volumetrics eating plan four years ago (and I’m not just saying that because my testimonial appears on page 5!) The reviewers who gave the book one and two stars, respectively, don’t seem to understand the program. One reviewer complains that the book is “bad science based on a fear of dietary fat calories.” In fact, Volumetrics recommends that 20-30% of daily calories come from fat. That’s well within accepted guidelines, and ensures both good nutrition and good taste. I eat butter, eggs and cheese (in moderation), and I’ve lost weight steadily while feeling satisfied on Volumetrics. A second reviewer complains that Volumetrics is the same as 99.99% of the diet books out there. I strongly disagree. I tried numerous diets over several decades and never understood the connection between energy density and satiety until Volumetrics explained it to me. Finding out that I could lose weight without being chronically hungry was a revelation! I recommend Volumetrics to anyone struggling with obesity. (…)
