The Volumetrics diet cuts down on calories but not on portions, so desperate dieters still feel full. It must work; three previous titles have all been New York Times best sellers, and the diet itself has been ranked among the top programs around by venues as various as Consumer Reports and the Daily Beast. With a 100,000-copy first printing.

This book looks great. It is based on Dr Barbara Rolls' research and contains information on portion size, snacking, eating out, exercise and how to diet while actually eating satisfying food that fills you up. I have made some of the recipes already and they taste delicious and really do fill you up. The rest of the family loved them too - they did not taste like diet food. It has great photos and easy to follow instructions.
