The Science of Feeling Full: How to Lose Weight and Stay Healthy

It is that time of the year where everyone is looking to shed the extra pounds they put on during the holiday season.

To help us ditch the weight Professor Barbara Roll, the creator of the Volumetrics Weight Control Plan, is here to deliver her four quick tips for feeling full and losing weight – and drinking extra water is not on her list!

Celebrated as one of the top programmes for weight loss in the US News & World Report’s 2017 Best Diet rankings, the Volumetrics Plan is proof that losing weight does not mean going hungry.

The plan is a long-term approach to weight loss and feeling full on far fewer calories. Unlike most fad diets that are all about mood destroying food deprivation, Volumetrics is a science-based strategy focused on the power of feeling full and managing your hunger using high volume and low calorie foods, such as soup and vegetables.

Rolls tests how different food properties, such as water content and calorie density, affect how much people eat. Rolls has researched and written over 200 academic papers, and her lab includes a large research kitchen and dining area. Her studies have led to a better understanding of the importance of allowing people to feel fuller both physically and psychologically using foods like soup – which have a high water content and low calorie density.

With almost a third of people failing to stick to a diet because they never felt full (30.8%) and persistent hunger pangs causing even those with the strongest willpower to break, the Volumetrics’ diet uses ‘satiety’ as a key ingredient in weight management.
