Do you see this type of “diet” as merely a fantasy for yourself? Well, you may not be able to eat fried foods and sugary sweets and expect to lose weight a pound, but it is quite possible to do so if you eat the right foods.
Obese women on a low-fat diet lose weight, but they lose more if they eat more low-calorie-density fruits, veggies, and soups. The finding comes from a year-long study based on the principles of the “Volumetrics” diet proposed by Penn State University researcher Barbara J. Rolls, PhD. Consumer Reports recently gave Volumetrics the top rating among popular diet plans. The diet cuts way back on fats, which ounce-for-ounce carry more calories, making them more calorie dense than any other food. But the study offers a big bonus: You get to eat lots of water-rich, low-density foods such as fruits, vegetables, and soups.
