Reading this has reall stimulated me into counting calories with density and have created a diet for both myself and my husband using the material. I also am using recipes from other books so long as the nutritional value is indicated. We are losing weight slowly but in a healthy way

NO hunger PAINs, NO weight re-GAIN June 11 2012
By Charlie T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you enjoy eating, don't like feeling hungry, and want to lose weight on a long term sustainable path, then I recommend reading this book.

Using the caloric density as a guideline as to how much of a given food you should eat is easy to follow. My willpower to avoid sweets has become almost heroic. Honestly, I am shocked how boxes of cookies and bags of chips go untouched by me now. They are just too calorically dense.

When I snack, and I snack all the time, I am eating fresh fruit or no-fat cottage cheese. I eat scrambled eggs with salsa for breakfast. Fruit through out the day and a big dinner with lots of veggies. In fact, after dinners I feel full.

I have yet to try the recipes in the book so I can't comment about them.

Losing weight following the volumetric principles has been easy and pleasant. Just remember: NO hunger PAINs, NO weight re-GAIN

Research-based, Realistic and Healthy Weight Management! Sept. 26 2012
By Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A book about healthy eating and weight control that really is based on sound research! What a treasure!

So often such books sound like they are based on science, but their "science" base does not truly represent what current evidence shows. Volumetrics, in contrast, is "the real deal". A large number of good quality studies shows that this approach based on calorie density of food really does help us create eating patterns that reduce calorie consumption without going hungry. On top of it all, it stands in contrast to the diets that promise weight loss -- with the goal of improving your health -- via unhealthy approaches to eating. Volumetrics allows you to learn new eating habits while you are losing weight that are habits you will want to continue for their good health value.

As a registered dietitian who specializes in strategies to reduce cancer risk while promoting overall health, the Volumetrics approach is what I talk about all the time. A healthy weight is among the steps to reduce cancer risk most strongly supported by research. The approach to eating outlined in this book shows how to get there using overall eating habits that also support lower cancer risk and better overall health.

The bonus? With Ultimate Volumetrics, you not only learn about this healthy approach to weight management -- you get step by step help moving from where you are now toward that goal, and you get recipes to help you find ways to prepare food that meets these goals and tastes delicious. No deprivation here. No need to feel your family will suffer while you try to lose weight, and no need to even announce "This is a healthy meal". Nobody will care, since they'll just know they're eating delicious food, while you know they're eating more healthfully than before.

Out of the hundreds of unhealthy weight loss diet books, this is a true gem.

Great April 10 2012
By Jules - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am so excited that the new book by Barbara Rolls is out. I have used her previous books and managed to get to my ideal weight and keep it off. I also read the recent article in Nutrition Action about this book so had to have it. The book is based on her research studies and includes new recipes with color photos that look amazing. It also has before and after pictures showing how you can adapt meals so you will feel fuller on fewer calories. A must have!
