Maximize Satisfaction While Minimizing Calories (NAPSA) - Eat more...and weigh less?
"'Eat less' is not always the best strategy," says Barbara Rolls, Ph.D., professor and nutrition researcher at Pennsylvania State University and author of "The Volumetrics Weight-Control Plan" and "The Volumetrics Eating Plan." "It's learning how to eat satisfying portions while managing your weight-and as a bonus, eating foods that are good for you."
"The Volumetrics Cookbook for Jenny Craig," a collaborative effort with Dr. Rolls, offers the following tips for incorporating low-calorie-density foods like fruits, vegetables, high-fiber foods and lean protein into your daily meals to fill you up-without filling you out:
A survey of 1,258 visitors to www.jennycraig.com revealed that 27 percent currently eat a soup or salad at lunch or dinner five to seven times per week. When told that eating such items before or instead of a meal might help them lose weight, nearly twice as many people-48 percent-indicated that they'd consider consuming them at that frequency.
Here's one of Dr. Rolls' signature salad recipes from "The Volumetrics Cookbook for Jenny Craig":
Combine 8 cups mixed salad greens; 1 cup peeled, shredded carrots; 1 cup diced celery; 1 cup cored, diced tomatoes; and 1 cup scrubbed, unpeeled diced cucumber in a large bowl. Add 6 Tbsp shredded, nonfat mozzarella cheese and 3/4 cup Italian Dressing* and toss well.
* Italian Dressing:
Place 3 Tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, 1/4 tsp salt, pinch freshly ground black pepper, and 2 Tbsp water in a screw-top jar and shake vigorously until blended.
