Pump Up the Volume

T-Rez over at Queen of My Domain has an excellent post on meal volume and the studies of Dr. Barbara Rolls. Check it out here:

Essentially, Dr. Rolls' studies show that people who eat high volume foods lost more weight. It makes sense, eating high volume foods, i.e, raw fruits and vegetables, cuts down on caloric consumption so weight comes off and stays off. Her studies also showed that eating a salad before a meal cuts down caloric intake by 20%.


  1. Thanks for the cross over onto your blog. I can also count on you being interested in good research.

  2. Since I'm a journalist (and an attorney by training), I've always been into research.
