I started exactly that way, I vaguely knew that Volumetrics involved eating lower calorie density food. So I started bulking up Light Progresso Soups with a lot of vegetables for dinner. I was feeling so good that I purchased the first two books on Volumetrics and now I am learning how to incorporate Volumetrics into all of my meals. I just ordered the third book "The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet"
When I was only counting calories I was usually hungry and my weight loss was on an extended plateau. Now I am eating a ton more food, my hunger is gone and last week I lost 3 lbs and this week even though I mistakenly weighed one day early I lost 2 lbs.
Thanks to Volumetrics I am eating more and losing more.
