The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet: Smart, Simple, Science-Based Strategies for Losing Weight and Keeping it Off is a book written by Barbara Rolls PhD and Mindy Hermann. It promises readers that they will be able to keep their hunger control, drop the extra pounds and stop them from returning.
The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet has found itself in the top spot on the New York Times bestseller’s list. Though this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is effective, it does show that it has a great deal of appeal – enough that consumers are willing to put down money to learn more about it.
The book includes strategies, recipes and a number of resources that are meant to inform and equip the reader for more effective and efficient weight loss.
Overall, this strategy is a twelve-week program that is meant to be followed step-by-step. Throughout this time, dieters are supposed to build new habits that they will maintain over the long term in order to lose the excess weight and stop it from ever returning. Within the pages of the book, there are a total of 105 recipes that have been broken down into thirty five different food categories. These are supposed to be the basis of the personalization and preparation of the meals dieters will eat from that time forward in their lives.
Unlike many other diet programs, this one attempts to take many common dieter restrictions into account. For example, this strategy recognizes that the average person has neither unlimited time nor unlimited money. Therefore, as much as there may be a better way to lose weight healthfully by spending all day preparing an expensive meal, this diet shows that results can still be achieved considering a typical person’s limitations.
In fact, it offers a number of time and money saving hints in order to help readers to be able to shape a strategy that would otherwise require more of those resources into something within their reach.
It also recognizes that regular people can’t simply eat homemade meals for every meal and snack of the day. There are times when we want to eat out at restaurants or visit with friends who won’t follow the same diet. The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet provides tips for coping with those situations as well.
While many people have left very positive reviews on the sites that sell this book, this is clearly not a diet for everyone. That said, this doesn’t mean that the diet is nonsense, as there is no single strategy that will work for all dieters. For that reason, speak with your doctor before going ahead with this strategy. That conversation will help you to know if it is appropriate and/or safe for you and will help you to build your expectations properly.
