What Is Volumetrics?

Question: What is volumetrics?

Answer: Volumetrics refers to an eating plan that's based on consideration of the energy density of food. And this plan was popularized by Dr. Barbara Rolls at Penn State University, who's done a lot of research in her nutrition lab on the subject. And basically what she and her colleagues have been able to demonstrate is that when we consume meals of lower energy density, less calories per weight of the food, we can feel well satisfied and also be more successful in controlling our weight.
