What types of meals should you eat on the Volumetrics Diet?

Following the Volumetrics diet, you'll specialize in food that's less energy-dense than other types – which suggests it's few calories per gram and can fill you up without breaking your calorie bank.

Go for a pound of low-density carrots, for instance, instead of an oz of peanuts, which packs an equivalent number of calories. No food is off-limits or required; make swaps where they're most bearable. Volumetrics splits food into four categories supported its density – category one, the simplest choices, includes nonstarchy fruits and vegetables, nonfat milk and broth-based soup.

You can also go heavy on category two choices, like starchy fruits and veggies, grains, breakfast cereal, low-fat meat, legumes, chili, and spaghetti. Be sparing with chips, cookies, cheese, nuts, butter, and oil.
